Heidi Swapp Marquee Heart


I do so love florals and spring colors- so instead of doing a “Valentine” feeling with this light I went for spring/floral in general so it can be up longer! I used the new Heidi Swapp heart, paper, and lights that I found at Michael’s and went for it.


Here is a link to my video tutorial – this was so quick and easy! I just love how it turned out as well.


Oh, the places you’ll go…


When I saw this card in the new Photo Play Paper papers I knew I would want to create a wood panel project around it. But how best to display that?

Well, I happen to have a whole lot of embellishments around just perfect for the job! For this project I used the Just Peachy bottle and the Attic Findings kit.

Love the results! If you’re looking for this great paper line you can find it (affiliate link used) at Scrapbook.com. The project is on a Prima wood panel, but a canvas would work as well, or even a photo frame!

28 Lilac Lane: Little décor house

I’m back from CHA – and it’s time for another 28 Lilac Lane tutorial!

For a project like mine you’ll need:

  • small wood birdhouse
  • white paint
  • liquid adhesive (PPA is what I recommend) and double sided tape/adhesive sheet
  • 28 Lilac Lane embellishment jar or kit (I am using the Attic Findings kit and Birds of a Feather Jar)
  • Optional: stamp, ink, glossy liquid sealant, and glitter glue

Here’s a link to my YouTube video tutorial.

Here’s my finished house, all ready for a spring display!

Don’t be scared! Pumpkin Marquee Love by Heidi Swapp

Well if anything would pull me out of my not having of any of these… it would be Halloween! I used the AWESOME new Heidi Swapp tape + (generic brand) acrylic paint + orange bulbs to color this. I edged with black ink and backed the holes with kraft glassine (Tim Holtz).

This was a great experiment! I’ll be back soon with a different shape – this time with glitter… In the meantime watch for that great tape to show up again, and if you’re looking for something similar I see that (affiliate link) amazon.com has Heidi pumpkins coming soon…

Guest Post: Buttons Galore blog

For a LONG time (12 years? more?!) I’ve loved Buttons Galore buttons! They have fantastic value packs, big bags ‘o fun, and well – I recommend them whole heartedly! So I was excited when they asked me if I’d be interested in doing a guest post!
