It's been a while since my last post. You probably think I've fallen off the face of the earth. Actually I've been working hard on the stamp stuff. (Things that would make boring posts, like packaging and getting the retail website up and running, which has been a challenge! It's still a work in progress as I try to integrate PayPal into it.)
Anyway, here's a smaller project I worked on. These are little refrigerator magnets.
-Stamping letters on them for spelling practice and learning your ABC's (well maybe your children, you probably already know your abc's :)
We had an old game that was missing some blocks, the generic brand of Jenga. I knew I could use the left over blocks for something and here it is. This is EXTREMELY easy to do! Just trace the block onto your favorite scrapbook paper, cut out, and use Mod-Podge (or another clear acrylic adhesive to attach paper) to glue down the paper to the block. When the first layer of clear acrylic is dry, put another one on top of the paper, to make the paper resistant to water damage. Then use your glue gun to glue a magnet on the back, and voila, you're done! Really cheap and easy to match just about any decor. I liked seeing the actual wood finish, but you could paint the wood too. (I almost spray painted them a chocolate brown.) Other ideas include:
-Use scrapbook rub-ons for cute patterns.
And here's the contest part! Leave me a comment at the bottom of this post by Friday, May 23 at 7PM. You're comment must include the answer to this question: What is your most favorite color combination? It can be just two colors, three colors, four colors, or more. Just let me know your favorite.
The winner will get 5 unfinished magnet blocks! I've decided as I do tutorials here I'll also be giving away one of the key items to make the project. (If you don't live near me, I'll include the shipping to get them to you!)
Check back really soon! I will have projects extremely soon with the new stamp sets. My samples get here tomorrow and the final stamp sets get here in about 3 weeks!
