UmWow ChipBoard

If you haven't already PLEASE check out my friend DeeDee's new business adventure.
Her and her hubby are making chipboard embellishments and theyare to DIE for!

I am just an idiot whe it comes to figuring out how to use really I am.I can't count how many times I have tried to use them and not been happy with the results.
It's strange because when I look at her stuff it makes me giddy inside and I just HAVE to have some...wierd I know.

So here is a little tag I came up with after a little trial and error.

Can't wait to get my mojo back and create again.I have another box of stuff coming!

Grandmas Quilt Project

First off,my grandma never made a quilt.
She didn't sew or knit but she did live beside a golf course.
(That's what you just thought to yourself)
 does a golf course have to do with grandma?
Well as a kid I remember walking through the fields collecting golf balls.
We'd give them to my aunt who would sit and peel them.Ever seen the inside of a golf ball?
It's not that exciting.
When I saw this next piece at the secondhand store,I knew I had my project plus it reminded me of a patch work quilt.

I have been wanting to do a shelf or something for my DD to hold her nail polishes and I thought this would work quite well.

I saw a tutorial on using Almers glue to create dimension to a project so i decided to try it out.

First I stamped an image and then ran a bead of glue around the image.I added a resin flower to the center and waited for it to dry.

Next I layered my paints and sanded each back a bit.Last I distressed it with ink.

After cutting all my papers to fit and adding a bit of embellishing,it was ready to go!

I used a little inspiration from a few fellow DT members.

Can you guess which ones?
I will put everyone's name in a hat to win a prize if you get 3 out of the 4 I was inspired by.

Good luck!!
ETA:For those of you that don't know where to look check out The Crop and see if you can guess who I was inspired by

Love my Fur Babies

I just came home from hosting a crop this weekend and I met some really awesome people!
I didn't get much done only a two page layout but I did have fun.
I managed to also squeeze this one in for this weeks CC challenge.

From DeeDee and Corrie:
Today's challenge is a "Little bit of everything" mix! Make sure your project includes buttons, ribbon and an image! Your image can be stamped, fussy cut or die cut. No specific theme or colors :) Ready, Set, GOOOOOOOO!

I think I managed to squeeze a little bit of everything into this one.I used washi tape instead of ribbon's becoming my new favourite thing!
