Perpetual Birthday Calendar Kit - lots of photos in this post!


Hi there!

Last month, I held a 'Perpetual Birthday Calendar Project Kit' class (that's a mouthful! :D)

This kit is fabulous!!
Great for you or to gift.
And you can use it for years & years.

The Kit box (see that trendy box up there..)  is absolutely loaded with all sorts of goodies to finish off your calendar kit.

There are 12 calendar sheets - they are specifically numbered, so make sure you get them in the right order (28, 30s & 31s).

There is a stamp set called 'Perpetual Birthday Calendar' stamp set which coordinates with this kit - while it's not 'compulsory', it was great to have.

Enough talking from me - check out what I did for these months...

I had so many goodies left over after making this Calendar Kit  - 

It's great value for $26.95 - only available until 2nd June.




Remember every $90 purchase gets to choose a free Sale-a-bration goodie!!

DIY Resin Flower Embellishments



Hi there!

Today I'm sharing with you a tutorial for 
DIY Resin Flower Embellishments.

I've used the 
Stampin' Up! Simply Pressed Clay Molds, 
a Glue Gun & 
Stampin' Up! Blendabilities 
to create these.


1. You need:  
* Glue Gun & Glue (any brand)
* Silicone Moulds 
(these are Stampin' Up! Buttons & Blossoms Simply Pressed Clay Molds)
* Blendabilities Markers

2.  Heat up your glue gun. 
When it's fully heated, fill your moulds with hot glue, starting from the deepest point in the mould.

Squeeze the glue smoothly so to avoid bubbles.

3.  Allow the glue to dry

4. Pop the shapes out of the moulds

5.  Colour the shapes with Blendabilities Markers.   These are alcohol based markers so will be permanent on the hardened glue.

Normal ink won't dry on these....not even after weeks...don't ask me how I know ;)


6.  Layer up the colour as deep as you like


7.  Use to embellish!  :D



If you've enjoyed this tutorial, be sure to PIN it or share it with your friends!

Thanks,

Anna :)
