Something New I Tried

So I told you all I would share what made for DH for our anniversary, he really liked it and so did I to be honest. It was a fun lil' project to make and my plan is to make lots more. Thanks so much to Betty Anne and Tracy for the well wishes on our day!

Here's the altered frame I made for him:


DH has his favorite dog around here and here she is with him. He calls her the best hoond and I have been wanting to create something documenting that. I think the frame was all of $2 and most of the materials I used were scraps or things I have had in my stash for a long time.... love that! My mission lately has been to use up what I have.


I used Maya Road chipboard...my favorite...and jazzed them up. The letters were glittered glazed, meaning I mixed my glitter with some Diamond Glaze and then painted it on. This is oh so helpful in getting the glitter to stick and giving it a nice sheen along with the sparkle. The heart was just glittered to leave it more sparkly. On the tree I used some Ranger Crackle paint to give the appearance of bark and then inked over it.

This butterfly was made the same ways as the letters and then I just clustered some other favorite things there. I am totally falling in love with twill ribbon and am so excited I have been able to find it in a variety of widths and colors for cheap!

I'm going to save sharing the card I made for him since it features A Walk Down Memory Lane's featured manufacturer for September and well, it's not September yet...LOL! Here's a sneaky peek for you tho'!


Can you guess what manufacturer is up for the spotlight?? I'll be back tomorrow to share with you all who it is.

Have super days everyone, God bless!
