Blog Hop with Hazel & Ruby - Day 1 with Jen

This week we'll be pairing with the fabulous Hazel and Ruby! Each day this week, we’ll post a new project on our blogs. Make sure you hop to both blogs and the Facebook page for more chances to win our giveaways!

I'm the first one to share my project!  I was so excited to get my box of goodies! The Hazel & Ruby Broadside Alpha Stencil-Masks are so much fun!  They are reuseable and are easy to use.  I created this sign for my classroom.  I will be framing it and using it for my gallery wall.  I have a wall that I hang kid's creations that they gift me with from home!  They love seeing their work on the wall and I keep them all in a binder when it's time to switch it up with new work.

Here's how I made this fun creation:

Coloring Cork with Gelatos AND Freebie Friday!

TiffCork1

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany here today with a photo tutorial for ya! Lately, I've been all about adhesive cork from DCWV & decided to try my hand at creating a card with it!

Materials:

  • Gelatos® (bubblegum, mango, metallic mint, gold champagne, black licorice)
  • Glaze
  • Die-cuts/dies/stencils (Sizzix Chevron Alterations Die by Tim Holtz, Lawn Fawn Thanks Scripty Die, Studio Calico Sunbrust Mask)
  • Paint Brush/Foam Brush
  • Collapsible Water Cup
  • Stamper's Artist Pen in White
  • DCWV Adhesive Cork Sheets
  • 12" x 12" Cork Tile
  • White Cardstock
  • Washi Tape

TiffCork4

1. Die-cut cork.

TiffCork5

2. Color cork pieces with Gelatos of choice.

TiffCork7

3. Blend with Glaze. This will also help seal the color into the cork without adding water while adding a nice shine to the finished piece!

TiffCork6

4. Color a large piece of cork with Gelatos using an ombre/gradient effect. Blend with damp foam brush! There's no need to add Glaze to this as the water will set the Gelatos color into the cork.

TiffCork8

5. You can apply the same ideas to a large piece of cork tile! Use the Stamper's Artist Pen in White to trace a design, then color with Gelatos of choice!

TiffCork9

6. Just like with the smaller die-cut pieces, blend the Gelatos color with Glaze to seal the color in! 

TiffCork3

Once dry, you can hang it on your office wall using some double-sided tape & you're ready to hang small reminders & mementos!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Round Robin Journal with Jen Matott (AND Ustream winner)

P1010630

Have you ever participated in a traveling/ Round Robin swap before?  I used to years ago while active on Scrapbook.com, but haven't in a loooong time.  When a friend started a journal Round Robin swap, I was in!  We chose our own topic and journal and then we send it on to a designated person in our group for them to add to it!  It's exciting and fun to see the journals as we get them and create in each one.  It was hard to let go of this baby at first but I really loved getting someone else's to create in.  Here is a peek at my journal before I mailed it on to my buddy!
