The Gluebers Are Here !!!!

The long awaited box of glubers Glubers have arrived and we are so excited. There were very few things at CHA that made us say wow and these were one of them. I had so much fun making the project and these great little dots make the task of making ribbon and fabric rolled and ruffly Roses easy as pie. What is even better the package comes with the supply list and the measurements printed on the back. Each package has an assortment of glubers in them so you can make different sized Roses. Here is a picture of the one I made at CHA.

You can add these to the front of a Mini, add a clip to the back for a hair piece, or even a pin to make it a broach. You can cut your fabric thinner and longer and make them a tighter roll. or, even use two different fabrics. The possibilities are endless !!  I am so glad that I no longer have to use my glue gun for these, as the glue gun was like a burn magnet to my fingers !!!
I also discovered a very useful die.. I do not typically use the border dies, but this one is not just for borders. This is one of the Sizzix Dies, Birds & Branches. I used them to decorate the fronts of some of our Thank you cards.

I had fun with it, as I cut all the pieces out of white card stock and then colored them with the Ranger Distress Stains. I had been dying to give the stains a try and boy do I love them. My hands look a tad bit stained, but that to me represents creativity !!!
Hope you are all having a great day. We are hoping you are all safe in light of the storms back east.
Blessings Carol & Barrie

It's been way to long

Hey There Friends
I can not believe that it has been a month since either of us posted to the blog and that is way to long. I know we have both been busy, and now that I have some help, things are starting to get a bit easier for me and giving me some more time to get crafty.
When we were at CHA, KaiserCraft was giving away a bunch of their beyond the page items, and I was lucky enough to be able to get this shelf that I had been eyeing for so long. I had to do some trading to get it, and then prayed that it would fit into my already full suit case, but lo and behold it made it home with me. It has been sitting on a shelf, looking at me, just dying to be decorated. I finally decided that over the week end, I would do some crafting and this is the end result of the finished project.

There are three drawers that I made spiral flowers with fabric sent to me from Char, misted the fabric with Starfish, and then dressed them up with some of the Tim Holtz Buttons. The paper is the Butterfly Garden by Pink Paisley and I used Starfish Glimmer Mist to color the edges of the box (yes it works great on wood)

The back is decorated with another spiral flower, a butterfly sent from Char with the fabric
and then I made myself a post card with an inspirational message that says
"Life if full of twists and turns, but no matter what happens,
 you have it with in yourself to over come it all. Live as each day as is it were your last"

And last but not least this is the side view. I had to use this paper on each end because when I looked at it, it was a love love love relationship.

Thanks for looking !!!!
