Hi! Tina here today with my final Design Team project for My Mind's Eye. I have been so lucky to be able to share my passion for creating with y'all and being on the MME team was a dream come true. I will still be around, so I will see you in cyber-land!
For my final project, I thought I share a super easy and super fun wall decor project. It is no surprise that I LOVE MME flair and I wanted to create one more project using this fantastic product.
This project was so easy to create, you could create multiples for a great gift idea. Using small burlap canvases, I layered pieces of chipboard and mixed bag die cuts. I topped each one off with a piece of flair.
Note: I removed the pin from the back of each flair so it would lay flat against my embellishments. Using a simple wire cutter, it can be removed easily.
I adhered the 3 smaller canvases to a larger burlap canvas. To finish the look, I added some Distress Ink to the edges of each canvas. Voila! Done!
Thank you for stopping by! Big hugs to everyone!
Hi everyone, Tonya here today. Yay! The holidays are here and that makes me so happy. You know what else makes me happy? The new Sleigh Bells Ring collection! So much fun! When I saw it I immediately knew that I wanted to make a new wreath with it. You know, some new swag for our front door.
This was super easy to make. I started with 14 6x6” squares of paper. I used one of the Martha Stewart decorative edge punches and punched the corner and two sides of each square.
Then I rolled them all up and then glued them around an 8” circle of chipboard. From there I just embellished.
For the hanger I attached a large grosgrain ribbon and used one of the big paper bows from the collection. Love those things, can’t wait to use them on some packages!
Hi! Tina here today with a project to get your home in the holiday spirit in no time at all.
Sleigh Bells Ring is a beautiful, classic Christmas collection. Included in the collection is a package of ready to make paper bows. Following the directions on the package, I assembled several of the bows and adhered them to my wire frame. I added a bit of wet adhesive to the back of each bow so they would stay attached to the wire frame.
I added a piece of flair from the Sleigh Bells ring collection to each bow for more whimsy.
My wire frame included a basic white frame, but I wanted to dress it up a bit. So I added decorative tape to the edges. This is one of my favorite ways to dress up simple and plain frames.
This project is great because you can re-use the frame after the holiday for future projects. What a great way to re-use and re-purpose.
Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful holiday season!
I placed the framed "Jolly Old St. Nicholas" frameable in a picture stand to give it height, then nestled it with a jar of pepperment sticks and glittered candles (in a jar of rock salt).
The weather has cooled, the leaves are cascading down and the rain has started…must be time for fall. My front door was in need of a little something. I found a wire pumpkin at our local craft store and went to town decorating with various My Mind's Eye products.
Supplies: Necessities- Woodgrain Monogram Alphas, Wood Decorative Tape, 6x6 Designer Paper Pad Frightful- 6x6 Designer Paper Pad Cut & Paste- Presh "Good Times" Decorative Stamps Lost & Found- Breeze "Boyish" Buttons Miss Caroline- Fiddlesticks "Lucky" Twine Decorative Tapes Set- Pink and Orange
The tag above was cut out using a tag die from Papertrey Ink. I stamped it with the leaf and berry image from the Cut & Paste Presh stamp set. Colored in the leave with Copic markers and added a little Wink of Stella glitter to the berries. The word happy was die cut from one of the papers in the Frightful Halloween line. Finished it off with some sequins, twine, hand dyed seam binding and that adorable button.
Happy Monday everyone! Valerie here today.
I’m not much of a holiday decorator except for Christmas, but I wouldn’t mind doing a little more of it. I have absolutely zero halloween decorations and it’s not because we don’t celebrate Halloween. I guess I just haven’t really seen any decorations that I can't live without.
I enjoy making a fun costume for my son each year and visiting family and friends so he can tell everyone about his costume and collect a little candy. I usually make one Halloween layout each year and call it good.
Holiday collections usually aren’t my style and not something I’m drawn too, but I’m so glad I gave Frightful a chance! I think it’s one of the best Halloween collections I’ve ever seen. I decided to use some of the chipboard elements for a home decor piece that I will proudly display in my home.
Supplies:Frightful chipboard elements and Necessities Black & Gray enamel dots. Other: plywood, black paint, and gold leaf kit.
I have a pile of half completed canvases and plywood that have gotten set aside because I’ve either (a) lost interest or (b) didn’t know how to finish them. So this 8 x 8 inch piece of plywood came from this pile of mine. It’s a failed project where I tried to gold leaf a design on plywood.
I messily added some black paint to the plywood and arranged the chipboard pieces on top. Hot glue is good for applying the chipboard pieces to the board. The pieces are self-adhesive, but to make it more permanent, something a little more heavy duty is required for a rough surface like plywood. And a project like this isn’t complete without a few enamel dots!
So easy, right?! I’ve picked out a couple of the 8 x 10 Frameables from Frightful too that I plan to hang too. I’m going to do some Halloween decorating this year!
Welcome to Chipboard Week, MME fans! All this week our awesome designers will be sharing inspiring ways to use MME chipboard. WOOHOO! Let's get this party started. Tina's up first!
Hi everyone! Tina here today to kick off our Chipboard Feature Week! It is no secret, I LOVE chipboard. Chipboard has always been my favorite My Mind's product. The designs and patterns are always the best and I always enjoy creating with them.
Today I thought I would share with you a Mini Tray project, created with our new Frightful Chipboard Element sheet.
This project was super easy. You only several pieces from our new Frightful collection to complete it. The only cutting needed is for the patterned paper placed in each cubby hole.
I layered chipboard elements with Mixed Bag diecuts, using foam tape in places for dimension. You don't only need to decorate each cubby, you can also add embellishments on the outside and edges. Fun!!
And just like that, DONE!
Do you like to create Home Decor and Holiday decorations using chipboard? I'd love to see your creations.
Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!
Hi, I'm Monika and today I'm sharing the October challenge with all of you- Rub-Ons!
I'd love to show you how I used the new rub-ons from the Jubilee collection to create some darling home decor. Now that I've tried it, I just want to go around and add a rub-on to anything and everything in our home.
And why stop at just plates? Because I have two daughters, I knew that I had to find a way to spice up something in the younger daughter's room, too. If you have more than one kid, you'll know where I'm going with this. Keeping the peace, keeping the peace.
Jubilee Wild Berry "Hey You" Rub-Ons Item #J81069
TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS
Before beginning, I suggest giving your plate or mirror or other object a quick swipe with some window cleaner and allowing it to dry before adhering your rub-ons.
I tested the rub-on's on the back of the plate first, just to see if it would work...and it did! I worked from above as the plates rested on my work table. I had little luck using this same technique on a curved glass vase, but I'm not giving up and will try again. I'll use smaller images, rather than the reallllly long string of hearts I originally tested with. The mirror, for some reason, was harder to do than the plates, which could have been because I was too lazy to pull it off the wall and was adhering the rub-on's at an odd angle while it was still hanging on the wall.
Now it's YOUR turn!
The rules (as always) are simple:
