This little blog...
Just received a special honor. I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy :)
Thank you to you lovely ladies for coming back showing support and sending some cyber hugs my way. I really thought this little blog would just die out but somehow, it is still alive, the creativity keeps flowing so I keep on posting. And making new friends along the way is always a happy smile on my face see ---- > :)
So let's celebrate shall we? Here's a project I've been holding onto for a while. It was for a challenge blog but it never made it last year. So it's time to share and teach you how to make this clear layout pouch.
YES! Clear. Layout. AND pouch.
How you might ask?
Easy peasy sweetie. This project uses something you already throw out. Yep. The clear pouch is simply using the cellophane that most of our scrap supplies already come packaged in. I hope this doesn't sound too crazy LOL!
Here's pretty much how I put mine together:
- I printed my picture & journaling on transparency sheet. (follow instructions on your package)
- Add paint and rub-ons to the back side of the transparency. (Remember to print and cut your picture to fit inside the cellophane pouch.)
- Then add in a couple of things you love: chipboard heart, sequins & glitter. Close the package either using the adhesive on the cellophane pouch or double sided tape to close the contents safely inside.
- For added coolness I sewed the transparency sheet edges of the pouch.
-I added the little hanger with a brad to hang as decorative home decor in my studio.
And there you go. Have fun adding lots of things that make you happy. I love looking at mine. And it pretty much is something you can easily display anywhere or whip one up in no time to give as a gift.
ps: Creative Therapy is rockin' this week with new design team members. Be sure to check the girls out. Here is my work for this week. I've been working on this shell stitch blanket for over 2 and a half weeks. 6 skeins later and it's done : ) It first started off as a scarf for my mom, but when I took it to my class to show my teacher, she said it would be best as a blanket (because of the stitch) so now my new project is a scarf for my mom. And now I have something to snuggle under *sigh*. It feels good to see this complete. cool cool. And the embroidery, well, just fiddling around. Still waiting to see if we have a house, waiting is SO not a thing I do patiently. LOL. Wedding plans continue, and so does the chaos. For now, enjoy your week one day at a time.
< love >
