DIY Push Pins with DCWV

Happy Friday!  I'm doing the happy dance, I'm so excited for the week to end and I'm ready for some relaxing.  Guys, you know I'm a sucker for anything paper (of course) and office supplies.  Putting these two things together sometimes is pretty mind-blowing, well at least it is for me.  Today I'm partnering with Xyron and DCWV to create push pins.  Don't worry, if you don't know me already, most everyone can create my projects.  This one is pretty easy and takes no time at all, well except for drying time.
DCWV Creates amazing papers.  Ocean Wonder offers printed gold foil combined that with amazing ocean patterns.  When I first opened up this paper, I thought being under the sea, like you know that mermaid we all know.  

You only need a few items to get started.

1 1/4 inch Small Wooden Circles
Flat Push Pins
Permanent Adhesive
1 1/4 inch Paper Punch

If you don't have a cork board already, you will also need the following:
8.5X11 inch frame
Cork Board Sheet
Cutting Blade

1.  Adhere the flat push pins to the back of your small wooden circles and let dry for at least overnight.
2.  Using your paper punch, punch out circles to add to the front of your push pins
3.  Run your punched circles through the Xyron Creative Station.

4.  Add punched circles to push pins.
5.  Optional:  Add a touch of waterbased sealer to the top of each push pin if needed.
6.  To create a corkboard, just cut cork board sheets to the size of your frame with a ruler and cutting blade, remove the glass from the frame, insert the corkboard.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great time with this project.  Don't forget to check out DCWV and Xyron's Instagram pages for more crafting inspiration.


Summer is near!  Yay!
I can only describe summer as flexible schedules, lazy mornings, vacations and summer camp.  Sending your kids off the camp can be hard for some of us and not so hard for the rest of us.  And getting happy snail mail from your child is always fun no matter what age.

Fun with American Crafts

Happy Tuesday!
We all know how much I love scrapbook paper.  To be honest, I think I might have a slight problem collecting scrapbook paper.  Wellllll, I actually do have a problem, there is really no question about it.  American Crafts is one of my favorite scrapbook paper companies.  They offer lots of paper lines, varying from, dots, lines, fun, colorful, bright papers to papers for baby scrapbooks, travel, graduations and family reunions.  You are sure to find something you love.

I'm so excited to team up with Xyron and American Crafts to bring you this project.  I created a gift bag using papers from the Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful line.  I'm so in love.

City Girls Weekend Fun

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Today I wanted to share a quick card I created using Deep Red Stamps.  I was drawn to the City Girls Weekend Fun Stamp almost as soon as I laid eyes on it.  What could be more perfect, girlfriends having a great time, hanging in the city? On a weekend?  Right?  Yes!
This was a super easy card, make one or only need a few things to get started
