Home Wreath - December Club Couture

I have been waiting for this transfer since they brought our catalog out this summer.  They showed us about 6 monthly transfers all the way through January.  Here it is:





Awesom right?!  I love this one.  I added the wooden arrow I cut out on my Scroll Saw (my new toy)  Because this is one of Chalk Coutures Magnetic boards, I can attach my 3D element with magnetics!  WooHoo!🙌🏼
I used one of our new neutral chalk paste Fresh Linen for the HME. I used Garden Herb and Emerald for the wreath and Currant Jam for the berries.
Here is my how to video (It is live so a little long)



This transfer is available December 1, 2018.

Beary Christmas! So, So Cute!

So cute, I love her.  Yes I made her a female, just seemed to fit.  If you cannot tell from my picture, this is a decorative pillow case.  Once this side is dry I am going to ink up the transfer 'Houndstooth Pattern' for the background and then put my cute 'Beary Christmas' on top.  I also used Chalk Couture's White Ink.  Eazy Peazy.....fast and easy!

And my how to video:

Mrs. Claus' Candy Shop

Don't you love it!  I sure do.  I love the wow factor after I pull the transfer off.  It's always the feeling 'Wow, I did that?!  So cool!  Chalk Couture makes it so easy for everyone.  There is always a small learning curve so hopefully I am giving you all some tips and tricks in my videos.   I am using my Hanging Banner again, the same one I used for Halloween and Thanksgiving.  (Check out my videos if you haven't seen them yet)  This hanging banner has a 2 per package refills.  So you can keep on changing it up for holidays, seasons, or just because you can!  LOL The ink colors I used are:  Kiwi, Meadow, Shimmer Copper, Shimmer Gold, Candy Apple, Regal, Bumblebee, Bright White & Black Velvet.   Wow, I guess I used a lot of colors........

And here is my how to video:




Ok, I counted and I think I used the term 'this is so much fun' at least 3 time!

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:

October 31 With Halloween Fun

What a fun a cute project to make for Halloween!



So cute right?!  This went pretty fast & I do have a couple of tips for you.  These are for layering.  Sometimes when layering chalk paste on top of a layer of paste can pull some of the paste off with the transfer.  Here are a couple of tips to prevent that:
1.  Fuzz, fuzz, fuzz.  That is taking the sticky side of your transfer and stick it on your clothing or towel several times.  This just takes some of the stickiness off of your transfers (the fibers from your clothing or towel help to do this and it washes off with water when you clean your transfer).
2.  Wax  I use Minwax natural.  Just lightly dab a thin layer of wax on the area you are layering (I use an old t-shirt to apply this).  You don't want to rub real hard.  You will find that your transfer will peel off very easily after that.
3. Put the transfer on with a light touch and only around the area you are chalking.  Leave a little bit heavier coating, but still ligh…
