Halloween Glass Block

Today was my first day designing for She's a Sassy Lady, I'm very excited.

I thought that I would make something Halloween so we can all get our decorating started.
The block started of clear (from ACMoore) so I used Rust-Oleum Frosted Glass spray to give the glass block the frosted look.

To decorate the block I used Avery clear sticker paper (from Walmart) in my Imagine to color and cut my images.
For the Happy Halloween I used Celebrate with Flourish for the cuts and All Wrapped Up for the color cut at 2 inches.
 The tree is also from Celebrate with Flourish, colored with All Wrapped Up cut at 4 inches.
The last cut is from Holiday Cakes also colored with All Wrapped Up cut at 1.2.
It was so easy to put the cuts on the block I did not need to use transfer paper.
Once I good all the pieces on the block I put a sting on battery operated lights in the block (see picture above,got them from ACMoore).
I hope you like it and please follow me. 
I also want to give a big thank you to Bobby ,the Sassy dude and Sheila , the Sassy Lady for all their help and advice.
Thanks and I will see you next time.

Art Philosophy Project Day 3

Today's project is the pillow box on page 28. I also cut the tag from the cartridge at 2 inches and the stamp on the pillow box is from the stamp from the stamp set in the bundle.
I cut the box out of acetate at 8 inches.
Then I stamped it with Azure StazOn with the star stamp. After your stamping has dried now it is time to fold. It will be hard but keep trying On some parts it's easier to bend the outer edges to get them to stay.
Here it is put together. For the glue, it was really trial and error. First I used invisible vellum tape, that did not work. Next I tried Beacons Zip dry, nope did not work. Finally feeling defeated I tried hot glue and it worked!!

My Entry for the HSN Banner Contest

Car Vinyl

I have not used vinyl a lot so I thought I would try it out and made this. So I thought I would share.
UPDATE: My husband said that he thinks that it is too small. So back to the drawing board to make it bigger.

Butterfly Wall Hangings

Hi,everyone. I made these to hang on my wall over my bed.I got the idea from frames I saw at Kohl's that I wanted but they did not have all the words that I wanted, so I made my own.
I started with 5x5 white frames I bought from AC Moore.
 I then painted them with the new Martha Stewart craft paint and paint brushes. I LOVE this stuff!!!
For the decorations, I used butterflies from Wall Decor and More, Cake Basics, Sophie, Art Philosophy, Straight From The Nest and Give A Hoot all cut at 2.5.  The words are all from Wall Decor and More cut at 1 inch.

Hope you like, I had a blast making them.
