ULD doo-dads~

Hello & Happy Monday!  I love Mondays!

First of all let me remind you of the definition of a doo-dad.. just in case I am the only one still using that term.

doodad  [doo-dad]  (a trinket, a thing)  

noun, Informal.

a decorative embellishment; trinket; bauble:  a dress covered with doodads.

Today I am showing you a few more ways to use some of the ULD wood embellishments.

I love the simple shape of a circle and I love the variety of sizes that ULD has of the popular Polaroid frames. (instagram/photo frames)

I decided to take both shapes and start creating a stash of fun embellishments that I can use when I put together my next layout or mini album.

Here is the before shapes, links, and prices.

I added bottle cap images to the wood then added a clear epoxy sticker.

magnest

I made these into a magnet. They are in my studio on the mini fridge. Just add the magnets to the back of the ULD wood circle.

Some of these designs I made, some are parts of paper or are bottle cap images. I used the epoxy domes for these, so they are thicker and higher, not a sticker.

Some supplies I used to create my Doo-Dads.

I used 3 of the ULD Polaroids to create these photo frames. Paint & Stamped..

I use Archival black ink for the stamping on the ULD wood embellishments. I love using my CTMH stamps for the images.

Kids @ Scrap Camp

Today’s post is about one of my favorite things about my job!  Kids getting Crafty!

I love seeing the electronics on the counter and the little hands busy with glue, glitter, and paints.

I have been a paper craft instructor for 6 1/2 years and I just recently added on the Summer Kids Scrap Camp.

I only do it twice a week through the summer and so far it has been a blast.  Here are a few photos of some of the kids showing off their crafty side.

The kids are using  Unique Laser Designs  wood embellishments to decorate a wooden desk top pencil box.

I hope you can find time to give your kids some thing crafty to do.

If you are local, I have 6 Scrap Camp days left.  Contact me for more info.

Time to get crafty!
