Genuinely Jane Studios- December Guest!

I'm super excited to be guesting with Genuinely Jane this month!  I haven't done any design team work for awhile and when I saw the call I had to apply!  I love their REAL wood books and their wood doodads embellies are amazing as well!  They have a full store for all your needs as well.
They sent me two of their wood books, the snow globe and the top hat book
Here's my take on the snow globe book!
I used papers and embellies from IOD Designs.  Adhesive was 450, zapdots and scrapdots from Helmar.  Glimmer Glaze on the Angel from Tattered Angels.

DIY Holiday Gifts

I'm always on the look out for fun gifts for teachers, family and friends during the holidays. Last Easter, while my grandma and great aunt were out here in St Louis, we hit up Michaels. If you haven't been there lately they have a dollar spot that you need to check out! We picked up these nice journaling books and note books with nice patterns on them, but as a crafter I knew I could do something more useful with them. I also sell fabric, wallpaper, wrapping paper etc on spoonflower and I have to order a swatch before I can set my items for sale. In the past I've done a blog post about how to cover these books with the fabric. As a crafter though, I always have scraps laying around that I tend to hoard like the rest of my kind ;) This is a great way to get rid of those scraps or an easy way to keep those kiddos busy while on holiday break! If you're a digi gal you can create the entire front and back page for you book or just print off paper and embellies and go from there to save some time and money.  I have some new free Ikat papers on my Facebook Freebie page today. When I put these together I used items from a couple different companies. I used Helmar Adhesives as well, particularly the 450 Adhesive along with scrapdots and zapdots.

Crayola Art

I finally decided to jump on the bandwagon and give this a go!  I'm really loving water color paint and paint splats etc that some are doing with tattoos right now.  So I decided to go that route with my project.  If you want a clean line instead of what I did, follow this tutorial.  Really what you can do is endless!

You can see more watercolor tattoo ideas that I've pinned here

Digital Scrapbook Kit Social Trend

I stepped completely outside my box and designed a "clean" kit.  No distressing just nice patterns!  This is for those teens and tweens out there and those of us that love social media as well!  I know we all have photos of our loved ones or even ourselves using some kind of device.  This kit is perfect for those photos!  I'm offering the packages separately or in a combo pack ;)  would love to see what you do with this!

Covered Books using Spoonflower Prints

I have a bunch of 8x8 spoonflower prints that have been sitting here staring at me.  I've been searching for some fun ways to use them with no luck.  Until today while browsing...Pinterest of course!  I got these cute notebooks from the 1.00 spot in March from Michaels, so I decided to cover the outside of the notebooks with the fabric.  After doing the first one I thought, there has to be a better way.  Then I remembered Mark Montano in his book, The Big Ass Book of Crafts, showed how to build a book completely out of cardboard laying around.  So I used the same concept. 
Since the front of my books had patterns on them I used a thick cardstock to trace and cover with the fabric.  Then I used Helmar's 450 quick dry to put everything together.  Here's how I did the fabric books and a sample of a full book that I made out of cardboard and scrap paper I had laying around!

If you've been following me a long time you know that printables and hybrid is what I love.  This is something that I posted last year but wanted to bring to you guys again.  With new links, because 4shared is WAY to confusing for me :D  And I want you guys to be able to actually download something without jumping through hoops!
So here you go!  Share on pinterest with your crafty friends if you like!  This would be a great activity on the 4th of July for those kiddos (or adults)!
Open the PDF file by downloading onto your computer and double clicking on it
Print off as many as you need
I used Helmar Products to create dimension and the number "4" by using glitter
Have fun!  There's no right or wrong way to do this!
