House Cutouts

Fun with House Cutouts!

March 14, 2021

I’ve been having all kinds of fun with house cutouts. I pulled out all of the ones I had left and made them in sets of 2 with matching colours and a couple of single ones with a coffee saying and napkin decoupaged on. I love these little house cutouts but decided it was time … Read more

The March 2021 Club Couture transfer is Wild & Free! Don’t we all wish!?!! I love the whimsy of this one and I see the flowers in yellow, in blue, in red… it goes on and on. I can’t wait to get it on a T-shirt – or maybe a denim jacket! Take a look … Read more

Horse Room Divider Panel

Room Divider Panel in Chalk Couture Ink

February 15, 2021

I decided to Chalk Couture ink my room divider panel since I had to take them off the frame and wash them. At first, I was thinking I would use the floral script and cover all the panels. I was seeing green and gold. They are a natural canvas type finish so a perfect surface … Read more

Go Confidently Feb 2021

Club Couture February 2021 Transfer: Go Confidently

February 12, 2021

The February 2021 Club Couture transfer is Go Confidently! This design is so incredibly versatile. Two great sayings you can use separately or together. The arrows can be used as a border element, highlight in the design, separator for the sayings or a complete background. I can just imagine a pillow covered in those arrows. … Read more

Creative Inspiration & Papercraft: Washi Cards

December 15, 2020

Sometimes creative inspiration can be hard to find. But finding a video of washi cards was just what I needed. The problem is that I am the slowest crafter on the planet. I like to do things in layers and pause between each to let everything dry and ponder what to do next. I will … Read more

Monochrome T-Shirts – My New Trend

October 21, 2020

T-shirts are my jam. I love making them, wearing them and giving them away. And my new obsession is monochrome inking. It started with a purple tie-dye T that I wanted to do the Believe in Yourself transfer on in Regal. I was surprised how much I loved it! I kind of expected that the … Read more

A Day of Fixing Mistakes – What About That Hex?

October 18, 2020

It was a day of fixing mistakes here. It is rare that I have mistakes that need fixing because with chalk, you can just wipe mistakes away and start over. But every once in awhile, things come together in a way that makes something seem un-fixable. That was the case with this hex design. I … Read more

My Magic Purse

My Magic Purse

September 28, 2020

I haven’t carried a purse in years. Mostly because when I did, I spent half my day running back to where I just was because I forgot it. And partly because I was always destroying them. Broken zippers, broken straps, torn pockets – all that kind of thing. I am rough on things that have … Read more

Purple Ink on Purple T

Purple Ink on Purple T – Believe in Yourself

August 19, 2020

Purple ink on a purple T, would that work? Turns out it did. Perfectly. Every time new transfers are released, I make a list of what I must have. It is surprisingly small. I then make a list of what I want and that list is much longer! But when I saw the Believe in … Read more

Fierce & Fabulous

Fierce & Fabulous Inked on Orange

August 13, 2020

Fierce & Fabulous was my first pick from the catalogue. I bought it for the huge ampersand. I thought of so many uses for it. I didn’t think I was likely to use the transfer as it was. But when I saw it, I immediately needed to make a T-shirt. I could clearly see it … Read more

Wood Bowl

Old Wood Bowl & My Aloe Vera

August 10, 2020

This old wood bowl has been around my house as long as I can remember. I long ago stopped using it for food when the finish started to break down. It has been used for a lot of things besides food since but for the last few years it has been sitting on top of … Read more

Nothing is safe

Nothing is safe! Inking My Dish Drying Mat.

August 8, 2020

Nothing is safe from being inked around here. We have a dishwasher. It is brand new, never used. I do dishes by hand. I find doing dishes relaxing and the hot water on my hands always eases my arthritis. But I am not a shopper. I never shop unless I absolutely have to and even … Read more

Jeans and Ink

Jeans and Ink – An old trend resurfaces.

July 26, 2020

Ink on denim is one of my favourite things to do. When I was a teenager, I used to dress up my jeans with fabric paint and embroidery thread. The more mistakes I made with the fabric paint, the more embroidery thread I used. Eventually, I guess it became too much work because I stopped. … Read more

A thing for tins

A Thing for Tins – and Peace.

June 10, 2020

I have a thing for little tins. I never know what to do with them, or what to put in them but I still really like them. When this little white one showed up I couldn’t resist chalking it. I sealed it as well so the design will last with a lot of handling. My … Read more

Today I Choose

Today I Choose Joy in Ink

June 7, 2020

Today I Choose Joy in Bright White ink on a grey t-shirt. I love inking! It has been forever since I have been out clothes shopping and it is not something I want to do yet. That has made me dig around my closet and dresser to find things I can ink. That is one … Read more

Love All

Love All on Small Pallet Sign

April 9, 2020

When the Club Couture transfer for May arrived, I saw it designed in the rainbow flag colours. So I pulled out a small pallet board and my paste right away. I love how this turned out and of course, the sentiment is awesome! Supply List: Pallet Sign (5½” x 7½”), Candy Apple, Orange Peel, Bumblebee, … Read more

Chalkology Paste on Paper – Egg Hunt Invite

March 24, 2020

You can use Chalkology Paste on paper with a little bit of preparation. The key is that you do not want the paper to stick to the transfer in a way that you can’t remove it. Use card stock or thicker paper for cutouts or cards. Try butcher’s paper for cutouts. Fuzz the transfer a … Read more

Live Deeply Another New Favourite

Live Deeply – Another New Favourite

March 21, 2020

The Live Deeply Collection of transfers has quickly become another new favourite. I was going to post that it was my new favourite and then I realized that I have more than one of those. The Feathered Friends Collection comes to mind. This one is the Live Deeply Collection – Octopus and I have used … Read more

Boots & Bling

Experimenting with Glitter – Boots & Bling

March 18, 2020

I wanted to try experimenting with glitter on chalk paste and what better transfer to try but Boots & Bling? It kind of sounds like it is calling for glitter. I had a board from the Board & Pillar Stand that was extra. I am going to use the stand with one of the house … Read more
