Favorite Things Friday! Patterns

Happy Friday!

Chevrons, stripes, floral, polka dots, text, arrows, checkers, plaid.. which is your favorite?

I asked the design team which is their favorite pattern to design with.. some picked one.. and some couldn’t decide.

Check out their favorite patterns.. and you decide which is your favorite too.

You only need one!

Are you ever working on a project and say I only need one more embellishment to finish this off?  Why not finish it off with just one Unique Laser Designs wood embellishment?

I thought today would be a good day to share some more wood embellishments that I used from Unique Laser Designs.

You only need one to compete a project!

Here are a few tags and a cover of a mini album where I only used one!  Remember you can paint, distress, stamp, emboss, cover w/ paper, etc.. so many options for finishing off your wood embellishments.  Stop by the Unique laser Designs website to see a variety of shapes you might want.

Favorite Things Friday! Embellishments

Happy Friday!  Today we are sharing our Favorite Embellishments.  Of course there are an insane amount of embellishments available to the crafters, so it’s hard to choose just one.

Most of my designers had the same favorites so you will only see a few pictures.  What is your favorite embellishment?  My favorite embellishments seem to change often.  Of course a good old button is still fun to use.  Now days I tend to reach for my washi tapes from Love My Tapes and my wood embellishments from Unique Laser Designs.  I can still stamp, paint, ink, etc to the washi tapes and wood embellishments, that’s just one of the reasons why I picked them.  The price is an added plus.

Here is a look at our Favorite embellishments.  Feel free to add a picture of your favorite.

 


Keep Calm

Today I am showing you a poster I made for my daughters chool.  Our school has this program school wide that recognizes kids who show good character.

The kids are given certificates and a Character sticker if they are seen using any of these school wide traits.

*Work Ethic *Responsibility  *Respect *Integrity *Hope *Courage * Citizenship * Compassion *Self-Discipline

When making this poster I knew I had to use a strong adhesive, so I used the LOVE MY TAPES double-sided adhesive tape runner.  The letters and tree are a heavy glitter cardstock and I layered the two poster boards using the same adhesive.   So next time you order your washi, fabric or lace tapes, add a few of the tape runners too.

I made several other KEEP CALM signs this week and kids that attended my Kids Camp made some too.   Have a great week & Keep Calm.!
