Tea Time Wall Art by Heidi and a Coffee Sleeve Mini by Deann

Hi everyone!  Today we have two really cute and fun projects to share.  First up is Heidi.

 Hello!  Heidi here with a little piece of art for the home that I made this last weekend.  I had these wonderful little tea cups from Gina's Designs that I knew I wanted to create something with.   When I found this cute little sentiment, I knew exactly what I would make with them. 

Here is a little close up of the tea pot and the tea cup.... with a little sparkly liquid! 

Gina's Designs: 
Tea Time Shape & Border Set 

Next up is Deann with an adorable mini album!

Good morning, Deann here!  Today I want to show you what you can make with coffee sleeves.  We all enjoy our morning coffee, and here's a chance to recycle too!  
 I began by making the covers. I cut 2 pieces of  chip board a little bigger than the coffee sleeves  and cut one side with a TH on the edge die . Covered with paper and a Texture Sheet Swirled Hearts from Gina's Designs .Then I added a Cardstock Doily Set 1  and  the word dream from the Delicate Frames & Ornaments Shape Set . On top of that I added 3 layers of lace to the spine side of the cover and lots of flowers .
 For the inside of the mini I used one of the Freebie Friday printable s Another Vintage Freebie Friday  from Gina's Blog

 These are the tags from all of the pages.
I hope you give it a go ! They are so fun and easy to make . Not to mention you will be recycling !

12 x 12 Layout by Melissa

Hi Melissa here with a 12 x 12 page using Gina's Designs Lasercuts. I'm calling this design "Aqua Wedding".  I always enjoy working with these peaceful colors, and the chipboard seemed to blend nicely with the theme. I used gesso followed by liquid pearls on some of the chipboard shapes, and lumieres on others. 

To the right of the photo is a fussy cut shape that I painted first, then added lots of microbeads.  I wasn't really sure about that piece at first, but as I continued working on the project, it all came together, and I was happy with the end result.  The lavender lace I had dyed awhile ago with Dylusions ink spray and it worked perfectly for this project.  Thanks for looking!

Photo Display Tray Memo Board

Happy Friday everyone, Kim here! Today I'm sharing the  Photo Display Tray in the gear theme.  We have the display tray in several styles, and I have created other styles in the past.  I just love making them, they are so much fun to decorate!  For this project, I opted not to use photos, but rather to create something unique.  I've made this one so that the largest section will be used as a memo board.  In the other sections I have used fun embellishments from Gina's Designs.

In each section I have placed different metal and chipboard piece that I felt went with the theme of the Display Tray.  I  used Kaisercraft Base Coat Paper for the background, and  embossed around the edge of the tray with Shabby Blue Embossing Powder.  I have also added embossed pieces from the Waterworks shapes set.

 In the photo below, you can see that I have added one of Gina's Steampunk Hearts on which I have used some Lindys Stamp Gang embossing powder.  I topped it with a metal butterfly from my stash which I also embossed with a shabby white embossing powder.  I added some flowers, lace and a metal sentiment to finish off this area of the tray.
In the section below I have used more of Gina's Waterworks.  This piece features water droplets coming out from the tap as well. I embossed this piece with some aged gold powder. I added some twine and a metal piece to the center, then some lace to finish it off. I have also added some cork to the section beside it, and some fun embellishments to it as well.  You can see another tap from the Waterworks collection, a resin heart with gear and more laces and flowers.

In the section below, I used more of the taps and pipes from the Waterworks, along with some fun metal embellishments and flowers.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my project today and I hope you will check out these fun Photo Display Trays in Gina's Store, they are tons of fun to decorate, and to create your own special and unique piece.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Thanks to everyone on the Craftsupplies1 team and please check out Julie's two shops on Etsy and Zibbet.

Next up is Mary with an inventive way to use our Love Wall Art Kit just by making a few simple adjustments.

Hi everyone. Mary here and today I have designed a "lace" sign from Gina's Designs LOVE wall art kit! I plan on using it in my craft room to mark my lace area. When I have decided were that area will be, I will then make the decision on how I will attach it. For now I will just stand it up accordian style!
I lined the back chipboard with paper from Prima's Delight after edging it with Walnut Stain.  The corrugated squares were lightly touched with gesso. For the letters, I took the "O" and cut a small section from it to make a "C".  After a coat of gesso and embossing with Madonna Robe Blue Gold, I turned the "V" upside down and attached the little piece left over to form the "A."
The cutouts are from the paper line. I use a croched doily from my stash under the "A" and one of Gina's Designs under the "E". 

 The panels were attached together with a lovely piece of lace from CraftSupplies1. I took out the ribbon that was woven through it. I then used one of my Tim Holtz Blending Tools and used it to drag the lace over the Antique Linen ink pad.
All the metal flowers are from CraftSupplies1.

Whimsical Mushrooms ATC Display Tray by Nancy

Hi everyone, Nancy here!  Today I'm sharing this ATC Display Tray by Gina's Designs.  I love all things nature inspired, and when I can add more than a touch of whimsy to the project, then that's all the better!  When Gina designed these chipboard mushroom shapes, I knew I needed to have them.  I had lots of ideas on where I'd use them, and when I came upon this amazing mushroom paper by Ephemera's Vintage Garden, perfectly sized for ATC's, I knew it would be a match made in Whimsy Heaven.  Naturally, this Display Tray is a perfect way to display your ATC's, but I had fun embellishing all the little squares, and creating a different adventure in each one.   Thanks for looking!

Gina's Designs Products Used:

Sticks and branches from various pieces

Paper from Ephemera's Vintage Garden (Whimsical Mushrooms)
Prima Flowers
Stampendous shabby embossing powders
Various dried items and feathers from my stash

Spring Fairies Bird House by Veronica and an ATC tray by Deann

First up today is Veronica with a sparkly and glittered altered birdhouse.

Hello again, Veronica here! Today I am sharing an altered birdhouse featuring fairies from Gina's Designs, butterflies from CraftSupplies1, and a new product called Vintage Sparkle Glitter from the scrapbooking store where I work.  I created it as a sample for the store to show the glitter, and first thing that came to my mind was the Garden Fairies from Gina's Designs
I mean what a better combination? Fairies and Glitter!
I was also able to easily use these beautiful butterflies from Craftsupplies1
Gina's Designs really made the project! Her Garden Fairies are a must to have for any garden mystical project.

ATC's by Melissa and an Altered Box by Shanna

First up is Melissa with some amazing ATC's.  Melissa used our chipboard shapes to give them lots of dimension.  Melissa has titled her ATC's Imagine, Together, and Flight.

Hi , Melissa here with 3 ATCs using Gina's Designs Lasercuts. I painted the cardstock doilies with lumieres and stickles. I think these images from an old calendar are very pretty, and it wasn't hard to find items from Gina's that went with them. I had fun decorating these with embellies I've collected over time.

Items from Gina's Designs:

Other Items used:
Core'dinations paper
Titles from Tim Holtz
Embellies from Vintaj
Swarovski bicone and flatback crystals
Pressed flowers from my yard
Silver fairies from Craftsupplies 1
Fussy cut images from Prima papers

Next up is Shanna with a gorgeous altered hat box with a feminine steampunk flair.

Hey everyone Shanna here, and I am excited to share this project with you!  I have had this box sitting around waiting for attention and it finally came to me what to do with her.  I gave her a good painting, a mix of Ranger Ink and Tattered Angels paint.

Then after she got her paint job Gina's Designs Texture Sheet - Gears  got its gold acrylic paint job with some heat gun for added texture. I happened to rub some Lumiere Halo Green paint on a couple places too for an added touch of something.

 I used the filigree, some of the flowers, and the lace from CraftSupplies1 to finish off the box. 

I hope you like her as much as I do, she is a little bit of a treasure.

Spring Birdhouse

Happy Saturday my pretty butterflies!  This is Crafting Marfa today!  Spring is here and so are craft projects!  You all know by now my love affair with birdhouses, so it shouldn't surprise you to see that one of my first spring projects is, of course, a birdhouse!  During the entire month of March the Design Teams for both Gina's Designs and Craftsupplies1 are having a collaboration.  We each get to work with both companies' amazing products.  I am the luckiest girl ever to get to create with such beautiful products.  This time I am sorry for my mother but she is not keeping this birdhouse :-D  It is going to be somewhere where I can look at it often!

Scroll down for a video and then a list of supplies!

Mixed Media Canvas by Kim

Hello everyone, Kim here, and today I'm sharing a mixed media canvas. I used lots of different techniques and mediums, and I layered chipboard shapes from Gina's store.  I began with a coat of Gesso on the whole canvas, then used some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays in various colors, drying with my heat gun in between the layers. I used Prima Masks in a brick pattern and in a dot and script pattern as well. I then used some of my stamps from my stash and stamped over top of it all to give the final look to the background of the canvas.

Here you can see I have used one of Gina's Arched Windows Set and layered on some paint, texture paste and two different colors of embossing powder to give a worn look to the window. I have placed one of the skeleton clocks beside it, and added some word sentiments and some of Gina's clock hands, also embossed with Shabby White embossing powder. A Cog from the Gear Shape Set and lavender flower complete this part of the canvas.

Below here I have layered some gorgeous laces from Craftsupplies1 and then used a Prima wing and more of the Gears Shape Set and flowers from my stash.
 Below here is the other half of the Skeleton Clock and some flowers along with a metal handle and some more gorgeous lace from Craftsupplies1
Here I have used one of Gina's texture sheets, in the swirled heart pattern and embossed it with Lindy's Stamp Gang Midnight Bronze Powder. You can also see all the texture and stamping I did in the background, and all the lovely sprays and twinkling H2o's I used to get this colorful look.

 Here again is the texture sheet, and underneath it is one of Gina's Intricate Doilies, along with a metal sentiment which says "art" and more flowers from my stash.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my canvas today, it was really a labor of love to make it, this is my first time making a canvas for a DT Project! Thanks for stopping by!
