Mini Pallet / Clothes Pin Banner - Good Day Sunshine!

I am OBSESSED with altering everyday items into something fun.  Items that most people throw away, I spirit away into my stash - waiting for inspiration to hit.

Such is the case with this week's project!  There is a vendor from work that gives sticky note pads attached to little tiny pallets - - I used to throw the wood pallet base away when I was finished with the sticky notes (I know so many of you are screaming in protest right now!)
But I recently thought - hey, I can make something with that!

Thus, my mini pallet / clothes pin banner!
And please note, you can purchase little pallets online through many outlets!

The flip side of the Green Butterflies Cardstock is a terrific tie-dye inspired pattern, that inspired my banner phrase "Good Day Sunshine"

Let's gather up our supplies!

Mini Wood pallets (available through Etsy)
Canvas Corp Braided Rope
Clothes Pins
Chipboard Alpha

And let's get this done!

Trim Green Butterflies Cardstock to match your pallet 
Ink edges of cardstock (I used a deep purple)
Attach inked cardstock to strips of mini pallet
Using chipboard or other alphas, adhere your phrase (I am currently loving GOLD lettering)
highlight pallets with Dew Drops
String braided rope throughout pallets and attach clothes pins in between pallets
Using a die cut machine or punch, create your desired glittered cardstock shape and attach to pallets and clothes pins as desired.

Such a fun, easy project -- but oh-so-cute for a summer party! 

Have a creative day!


Have a "Barking" Mad Birthday

Colleen here with a quick and easy birthday card and gift holder.

I started with Black Animal Thermal Cardstock as the background for the card.  I next used Black and White Glitter Paws Cardstock to layer on top.  I used my Sizzix die to cut out the dog for the front.

I added 3 stripes of black ribbon to the top and the Happy Birthday phrase and the card is complete.

What little boy or girl wouldn't like the little gift holder to go along with their card.  This is another quick and easy project for you.

You can use any paper but I wanted my gift holder to match the card so I used the Black and White Glitter Paws Cardstock.

You cut a piece of the cardstock cut 5 3/4" long by 3" wide.  Fold the paper in half and then fold each side inward.  Punch two holes in each end.  It should look like this

Now you can decorate the front.  I used Silver Bells Dew Drops for the eyes and chain around his neck and then used the punched out circles to put in the center of the black of the eyes.  I cut out paper shapes for the nose, tongue and a small heart punch for his tag.  The ears are also made using a punch and the tail in the back is a letter "J".  

The final step is to put the ribbon through the four holes, fill it with whatever you like and then tie the ribbon shut.

A matching gift and card done in less than an hour.  I hope you will give this a try and have fun.

choose HAPPY and amazing Robin's Nest Products

Hi Bev here today at The Robin's Nest . I am creating "choose Happy" page with a mom and daughter photo. This collection can be used for guys or gals pages. One side soft with florals, bold stripes on the other side.

Supply List:
The Robin's Nest Products
Paper: Genuine Boy Collection, Boy Swirl Glitter CardstockBoy Star Glitter Cardstock, Daisy Stripe Teal, Creme Glitter Cardstock
Accents: diamond dew drops, periwinkle flowers, azure ribbonteal glitter journal
Doily: Gina's Design
Other: burlap flowers, white signo gel pen, cork title

1. pull photos, accents, papers. It's a busy background so some plain glitter paper to separate things is perfect.
2. I started with the slanted border first across the full bottom edge. The dark brown thin border was also added with some white signo gel pen stitches.

3. Decide on the layers and colours to background the photo. I started with the cream glitter and worked my way forward with the cream and teal floral. The photo is matted in the matching teal shade. I was  missing something so I then added the dark brown with blue star strip to pull it together.

4. For accents I worked with Gina's Design doily and the fun cork sticker. I added the ribbon accent. Above the photo on top left is a burlap butterfly.

5. The trend today is to add clusters off in corners.. so my cluster used accent papers and the fun diamond dew drops. 

6. below the photo I added the journal accent and around it I added flowers both in paper and burlap.
7. You can finish your page anyway you like with as many accents as you like. You make it your own.

Thanks for stopping by.... enjoyed sharing with you today.

Wedding album

Friend from work got married last Friday and I prepared wedding album for her (she can use it for wedding picture or as a guest album)

From Robin's Nest shop I use:

That card stock is perfect for any type of wedding gifts and it comes also with white/silver version.

First I cut different shapes with punches & cutting dies and I start adding my layers. I add ribbon on both sides to close the album.

After adding doily and heart with names I add wedding rings & Wedding day (both chipboard painted in gold)
In the end I add flowers, leaves & pearls

Hope you like my album as my friend was delighted.

Going Places

Hi there, Astrid here sharing my last page for the Robin's Nest. I had a great time and appreciate the trust they had in me for creating layouts. Big thanks to the theme for having me the past six months.

This last page is about my son, this photo is from a few years ago taken at our camping place in France, he loved to play with the rocks along the little river.

Robin's Nest supplies: 

Other supplies:

chipboard viewer
playing cards

I started with the Clover Border Glitter Cardstock as background and added two left over pieces from the Moss Green Glitter Cardstock to it, I punched a border out of one of them. Then I added a piece of the Black Daisy Glitter Stripe Specialtey paper on them

Next I added a layer of gesso mixed with water all over it.

Added some splatters of black and white acrylic paint (mixing with water again will make it easier to make splatters)

Adding my photo to it, a sticker next to it and place one of the Leafy Green Cards under the left topcorner of the photo.

Then I take a doily and cut it in half, then colored it black with a black marker

I made a square out of self drying dough, added a stamp to it and colored it with ink. This is how you can create your own embellies.

I cut out some words from differet pp's and add them to my page, I colored a chipboard viewer black with a black marker and added this glass button to it.

Well thanks so much for taking a peek, I hope you enjoyed my pages the past months. Maybe we will meet again sometime, somewhere. 
Thank you !
