You Only Live Once, Lick The Bowl

Hello, Friends!  Marilyn here with a kitchen decor project.

Here's what you'll need:

  • Canvas - I'm using an old one 8" x 10" found in a back bedroom closet
  • Paint - mine is Spring Green from Apple Barrel (available at Michaels)
  • Square 1 Printable - approximate cost is $1 per 8.5" x 11" sheet
  • Image from Silhouette Store - I used design #51833
  • Silhouette software and cutter
  • Ink Jet Printer
  • Stickles

Begin by painting your canvas.  I found an old one that looks like it was a victim of a previous failed project.  It was covered in a couple of different colored paints and had some paper clouds mod podged on it.

Sad, old canvas
I painted my canvas with Apple Barrel acrylic paint in a Spring Green color.  After covering with paint, let it dry while you do the next part.

I'm seriously messy!  Dry time approximately 1 hour.

My inspiration for this project came from Pinterest.  I found this image which was available for $18.

Using the Silhouette store, I found a mixer that I wanted to use.  Design #51833.

Design #51833 from the Silhouette Store
Using my inspiration and Silhouette image, I designed my project using Silhouette software.  The background polka dots came with my Silhouette software.  The wavy edges were created using the knife tool in the Silhouette software and selecting "Wave" button.

 Group all items together and use cut setting of "Cut Edge".  Add the registration marks. Send the design to your ink jet printer; make sure you have loaded a sheet of Square 1 Printable first.

Your cut image will feel like fabric and behave like a sticker.  Lay it onto your painted canvas.

I added Stickles to the pink letters as well as the beaters on the mixer.  You can still see an uneven spot by the bottom of the mixer where the old mod podge had been.  This won't be a issue with a new canvas.

Hope you have a blessed day and thanks for stopping by, ~ Marilyn

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
