January is a great month to get crafty.

IMG_0413I got a wonderful craft box from my daughter for Christmas and it was a scarf printing/stamping kit  from Brit+Co. The kit included a jersey knit scarf, fabric paint, a small foam brush, a sheet of sticky foam to create your own stamp and a wooden block for the sticky foam paper.  I had plenty of my own solid image large stamps and some mini bottles of fabric paint.  I created my own pattern and colors and stamped away. I learned in the process that the painted stamp does only needs a minimal amount of paint to create a nice stamped image.  What a great gift and stamping project.  Attached is my finished stamped scarf. I love the way it looks.

Happy New Year calendar creation

2015 calendar pagesEvery year I create a new calendar to share with friends and use at home.  Every printed page is embellished with a stamped image for every month. This year I decided to try something different and used some images from My Favorite Things stamps.  After creating an original I added glitter glue and pearlized accents.  Check out my newest creations.
