Hey guys, Chalk Couture started Monthly Subscriptions in February of this year 2019.  Woo Hoo!!  This is exciting news.  You will received a B size transfer (8 1/2 x 11) and 3 singles paste colors every month.  This 1s $19.99 + tax/month & free shipping.  You are obligated for three months once you sign up and that is it.  Awesome way to find out if this great craft is for you.  Here are a couple of pictures of the past 2 months subscriptions.

You sign up one month and you pay and receive your subscription the following month.  It is a surprise each and every month.  It is also exclusive to subscribers and designers.  (Designers only get the transfer)  You will not see this on my website, but you will see on the top a 'Club Couture' button.
So a how to video:

Don't Grow Up It's A Trap!

Well that speaks my language.  Why act like a grown up when acting like a kid is so much more fun.  Who doesn't like the big laugh from a kid?!  It makes the whole room smile.  Well I love this transfer, and since our transfers are reusable, I used it twice.....so far.  One with Chalk Couture Paste & one with Chalk Couture Ink.  Both of them I used Bright White & Shimmer Gold on Black.

Here is a picture:



One transfer, two designs & surfaces.....so far!

First the paste:

Now for the Ink:




Love this, and I will be wearing this one!

I guess the best thing I can say about this is live life like a kid and enjoy E V E R Y moment!

Loads Of Luck!

This vintage truck is spreading luck everywhere it goes.  That's how I see it anyway.  I've been changing my decor in my house for the coming holidays.  Here is my latest project on my Lazy Susan:




I love my Vintage Truck!  I have been keeping it on my Lazy Susan and just changing everything else.  After this one it looks like I will have to put another coat of Chalk Paint on it.  Not to be confused with paste or ink.  This is not Chalk Couture surface or chalkboard, so occasionally I give it a new coat of paint.  Watch my video below to catch a couple of techniques and mixing chalk colors to get a new color.  Eazy Peazy!

Getting Ready For Spring & The Upcoming Holidays!

Ready to change up my home decor with Chalk Couture.  Wipe off my boards and chalk it again for the upcoming holidays.  This time I am changing up my 'Home' board for Easter & spring.  Take a look:



Isn't he cute?!  Love this little guy.  I keep using and reusing this transfer.  This only took me about 30 minutes real time to complete.  I just had to remove the hearts and re-chalk the bunny and flower.  I used:  Paste - Fawn, Marigold and Cherry Blossom

And here is my how to video:

More Vintage Transfers! 'Vintage Tractor' and 'Life On The Farm'

If you like Farmhouse Decor, you are in for a treat!  We have a new vintage vehicle in town, it's 'Vintage Tractor' and guess what?!  All the add-ons for Vintage Truck fit on the back of the Vintage Tractor.  I'm lovin it.  Here is a picture of what I am talking about.




So awesome right?!!  Now I have to chalk up these two new ones and cut it out on my scroll saw to go with my truck!

And, you know I have a video right? Here ya go:




This is one of my favorites by far....... These transfers are all about layering.  Here are my tips. Fuzz, fuzz & fuzz your transfer some more.  When you think you have done it enough do it again.  (this is just putting your sticky transfer on you t-shirt or towel.  It just gets some of the stickiness off of your transfer especially if it is new. Take a natural color wax (I use Minwax) with a rag (I use my husband's old t-shirts and cut it up) and dab it onto the top of the first layer of chalk.  Then take a buffing pad and buff lightl…

New Catalog!!

Just sayin.........

A Few Things I Have Been Working On Since Christmas.....Come Look And See!

Well, Christmas is over for 2018 and all the decorations are down and put away.  I am ready to start out new with 2019!  But first I want to show you what I made for a couple of gifts:


I stained and waxed this wood round,  applied two transfers:  'Love Never Ends' and 'Rustic Wreath'.  I put a couple coats of Protective topcoat and two handles.




It's a serving tray, but you could easily attach a lazy susan kit to the     bottom.





Speaking of Lazy Susan this is how I re-decorated mine:


Ready to play FOOTBALL?!!


The Vintage Truck had a Christmas Tree on it and Santa and Sleigh were flying on top.  I wanted to keep the truck, so I just removed the chalk, all but the truck, and re-chalked for Super bowl!  Sadly the Chicago Bears lost their play-off game, but we are still ready for Super Bowl.  

Watch my video to see how I made these footballs....you have to watch all the way to the end 😉
