For several years now these wonderful companies have been making these paper tapes we use on our journals, paper cards, tags or any kind of paper projects...........so many ways to use them! If you haven't tried them before now, you need to! They are so much fun and it has become another addiction! The Paper Crown carries several different companies of these tapes. The Cavallini are some of my favorites. They come in the little tins with 5 different rolls.
Thursday nights class was a MARATHON..........these girls did an unbelievable job working so hard to finish the 12 tags.........yes, they made 12 Christmas tags and decorated the cute little box to hold them.
This is the kit before they got started! I know when they walked into class they thought no way would they ever get 12 tags completed and the box! I have to say this class was one of the most time consuming getting all the pieces together and kitting up that I have ever taught before, but it was so worth the prep work to see each girl so proud of their project! And that is why I teach classes at the Paper Crown. To see each of these girls hold up their completed projects and let me take their pictures. Thanks girls for a fun evening! You are all great students and you all deserved an A+!

(This cake has been a tried and true cake that has been added and subtracted ingredients for years. My mother in law gave it to me 38 years ago when I first got married and I have made it in so many various ways.)
Okay girls that took the class, I will have the one thing I forgot in your kits......this cute little jester! Hopefully I will take them up to the Paper Crown on monday or tuesday when I dress Girdie for the Holidays. Again I am so sorry !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I sure hope you all enjoy your Halloween weekend!
If this is your first Christmas together as a married couple, first Christmas for a child or just wanting to journal a memorable christmas, these little journals will be easy to keep those treasured memories! I will have these for sale at Glitter Market!
Have a great day everyone! It's raining in Oklahoma.............
It has been way to long since we have had a Paper Doll Class! Here is your chance to come and have fun in this basic cutting, paste and colored pencils. We will complete 2 Christmas paper dolls that would look really cute as a card or maybe even tie onto that special gift for someone. This class only has a couple seats left so call the store for your reservation (405-848-2389) The date is thursday December 1. Hope to see you for a night of fun and laughter.
Several years ago I made some " Junk Jacket Pins".........well I decided to add a little bling this year when I found these pins with a little bling added to them! I didn't make to many but I will have a few to sell at Glitter Market! They are kinda fun to put on that favorite jean jacket we all have and wear.
When getting ready to have an open house or some sort of gathering to sell handmade work I have always tried to come up with a few items people can buy for less than big ticket items. Sometimes our kids have many teachers or friends and they might need 2 or 3 gifts that are fun and not the typical gift! So I hope these sweet little heart pillows will do the trick. I have had fun sitting down in the evenings hand sewing the pictures and words.( I thought it would be a good time if the Yankees got in the playoffs for the world series but I am enjoying the series anyway) I hope to have a lot more made for Glitter Market................
Hope this finds you having a wonderful fall break weekend...............
Don't you just love it when you experiment with different kinds of things and it works...........A while back I had posted on how to mix vinegar and salt to metal and it turns rusted and even patina looking green/turquoise. It worked the first time around so I decided to try it again to turn these chandelier leaves from shiny silver to rust. And they turned out really rusty.
Here is the formula that I shared once before but if you forgot here it is:
hope you are having a great week........
