Do Nut Give Up!

Our October Club Couture is 'Do Nut Give Up'




October is Breast Cancer Month....but I am including all cancers.  I have attached a few ribbon colors on this, but there are many, many more.  I have several friends and family going through this and some who have lost the fight.  I am a survivor myself!  8 Year!  Woohoo!  We are strong and we can do this!
I used our October monthly transfer 'Do Nut Give Up' and then I cut it out on my scroll saw and distressed them!  Added some ribbon and voila!

So What Did I Do With My Vintage Truck? Ta Da!

What's that saying...'A picture is worth a thousand words'  not sure if that's correct, but this is what I did!  I used my scroll saw and cut out my Vintage Truck and the Add-Ons that go on the back of the truck. (look at the truck in the back)  A different one for every holiday or season!  I'm excited, love how this all came together!

My Buffalo Plaid Vintage Truck

I'm working on something new to add to my Chalk Couture!  Stay tuned.  I'm so excited about it!





Love me some Buffalo Plaid Truck!  And on one of my favorite transfer 'Vintage Truck'  Do you love it?  I sure do.  There is a reason I have kept so neutral.  1.  It really pops on the blackboard surface - I used the custard chalk paste, but that is an old color.  I believe the new and closest color would be Fawn.  2.  Well, you will just have to stay tuned....I will be showing you shortly.  :-)


Here is my how to video along with a few clues





So what do you think I will be doing next?

Sugar Skulls

Sugar Skulls appear during Dia de los Muertos (The day of the Dead)
This is what I looked up:
The History of Dia de los Muertos Sugar Skulls. During the celebration of Dia de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead), sugar skulls are often used to decorate the ofrendas (offerings), and they are exactly what their name describes--skull-shaped sugar. The festivities start at midnight on the 31st October. Sugar skulls are often used to decorate the gravestones of the deceased. The reason they are called “sugar skulls” is because the authentic sugar skulls were made out of clay molded sugar, decorated with feathers, colored beads, foils and icing.

Halloween Design on Chalk Couture Banner

Chalk Couture Banner....Awesome!



I love CC Banners, the original Banner comes with twine and the two wood brackets held together with strong magnetics for $19.99.  The refills come two in a package for $9.99.  At this price I can afford to keep a banner hanging for all the seasons and holidays I want.  Win, win, win is how I see it!  The   inking size is about 14" x 22"  The actual size is a little bigger but, I am allowing some space for the hems and wood brackets on top and bottom.  For size comparison the October 31 transfer is 8 1/2 x 11, so....lots of space to play! 

This is what you will see if you look at the catalog:





Change out the designs of a Hanging Banner with the Banner Refill. 2-pack hemmed canvas sheets. One-time application per canvas sheet. 







While you are watching this video see if you can catch my mistake.  I'll tell you how I fixed it below.  No fair peeking! And my how to video:
