Tips & Techniques Tuesday - September 16, 2014 - Rabbit Ears Bows

One of the easiest things to do is tie a bow right?  Well how many times have you had to retie a bow?  I know sometimes it may take me 4 or 5 times to get it to look right.  Then I discovered the Rabbit Ears Bow.  Here is the video that will make you tying a bow a lot easier.



Hope you enjoyed this one.

Grandma's Rocking Chair - September 14, 2014 - Wooden Elements

Grandma's Rocking Chair question - I like the look of the Autumn Wooden Elements but how do you use them?


They are so beautiful but how do you use them or even get them to stick?

So here are a few hints.

I tie them on with Linen Thread either on a box or even a card.  This works great with the hollow ones.  I love also tying them on with ribbon.

I really love the look and just gives a great cheery look.

For the solid ones you can use sticky strip -  I found this works great. I have tried the Transfer Adhesive Sheets and have mixed results.  out of two I used 1 fell off and two stayed for a while, have not heard about the one that I mailed to see if it was still on the card.  You can also use Multipurpose Liquid Glue but I hate to wait for it to dry.  

You can use these directly on a card also.


Price: $4.95
Frame stamped images, or use alone. 36 pieces: 6 ea. of 6 designs

I will not be having a Grandma's rocking chair next Sunday as I will be camping out.

Happy Stamping

Grandma's Rocking Chair - September 7, 2014 - Frightful Wreath


Today's Grandma's Rocking Chair will be about the Frightful Wreath Simply Created Kit.

I just have to say I just love this kit.  I have put two together so far.  I had a class on it and everyone loved it.  You can put it together according to instructions or vary it a little or a lot. Above is according to instructions below I varied it.
It is a little hard to see with my Black Apron but the Spider is hanging in the middle instead of the Rosette. 

The only negative comment I got was that it was harder to put the spider together than they thought. They thought it should have been put together before.  Then I said it would have only taken them 10 minutes to put it together. 


Here are some of my friends with their wreaths.  They really had a good time.

Here is the information for the Frightful Wreath Simply Created Kit.

Price: $26.95
Tis the season for festive fright! Add a little haunt to your house with this spooktacular wreath, 17" in diameter. This kit includes everything you need except for stamps, ink, and adhesive.

The stamp Set that goes with it is the Frightful Wreath
Price: $14.95
Set the tone for your fright night festivities with these Halloween sentiments, with an eerie splatter for good measure. Photopolymer. Set quantity: 4.

Get yours now and have a fun time putting it together.
