Hi everyone!!! I’m super excited to share with you all that I will be altering and creating another six months with my favorite scrapbook company The Robin’s Nest. There is a mix of familiar faces and brand new design team chicks that will be sharing their talents for the next six months.
I hope you will check out the Chattering Robin’s blog daily to see what our talented group of ladies have created. When you get a chance check each design team member’s blog to see what else they are creating.
Are you loving Summer as much as I am??? I kinda go into hibernation in the Winter months but once it warms up I’m outside enjoying cookouts and time by/in the pool. Well 4th of July is almost here and I would to share a quick and simple project I created as a table decoration for the 4th. But first, before I forget, I would like to share with you that over at the Robin’s Nest store they have the Diamond Shaped Dew Drops on sale this month for 20% off. There is so many things you can use these little dew drops on…embellish layouts, make flowers, etc. Also we have teamed up with Timeless Twine too. What a great combination huh?!?!?!
My supplies list of what I used is below:
Vanilla Glitter Fluer Cardstock
Red Glitter Sorbet Cardstock
Blue Glitter Crackle Cardstock
Diamond Shaped Dew Drops
Glitter Blue Alpha Letter Stickers
White Alpha Sticker Letter
Firecracker Aqua Blue and Cherry Red Timeless Twine
Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations On the Edge Iron Gate Diecut
Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Ovals Large
The Paper Studio Script Embossing Folder
Well first off you need an empty and clean can. I used a pull top can so I wouldn’t have any sharp edges on the inside because if there is a will or way I will cut myself…lol 🙂
Next I Gesso the bottom and top edge of the can. No need to do the center because you will cover that with cardstock. Once the Gesso is dry I used Folk Art Tapioca Acrylic Paint to go over what I just Gessoed. Let dry. Now cut Vanilla Glitter Fluer cardstock to fit can. Once you have done that use Mod Podge to adhere to can.
Next make a bow with the Firecracker Aqua Blue and Cherry Red Timeless Twine. Adhere a button to the top of the bow and then shape.
Adhere to the side of the can. Next cut a strip of Firecracker Aqua Blue and Cherry Red Timeless Twine and glue one end of under the bow and the other end tie a small bow and adhere to the other side of the can.
The banners slightly fold the end and cut a small “v” out of each and adhere to the top of the twine. Next add U.S.A. to each of the banners.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out The Robin’s Nest and the Timeless Twine stores. Also be sure to stop by the Chattering Robin’s blog and check out the rest of the design teams creativeness.
Thanks for stopping by and hope your day is wonderful!!!
Also The Robin’s Nest this month has teamed up with Love Bug Creations in which The design team get to use their Rupple Ribbons which is sooooo vivid and fun to use!!!
I had a empty Crystal Light container that I wanted to use for my project and when I first seen the Hot Flame Line the first thing that crossed my mind was motorcycles, racing and barbecue. I knew I wanted to do something different but I didn’t know what.
First I decided I was going to add a “wash” to the Damask Black and White cardstock. I mixed Ceramcoat Green Tea paint and water together and then sponged painted the cardstock. Rub the excess paint off of the black Damask then heat emboss the cardstock to dry it. Once dry spritz with Perfect Pearls Mists Sour Apple Spray and dry again. Now it has a metal shimmery look to the paper. Next cut Black Classic Glitter Cardstock to fit and adhere to the container. Cut the Damask Black and White cardstock 4 inches high and then to fit around the container, center between the Black Classic Glitter Cardstock and adhere.
Next cut from the Plum Watercolor cardstock a Frame Back, Ornate Die and emboss with Fleur De Lis Embossing Folder and adhere to the container. Glue the black mini pom pom trim around the top and bottom of container.
Next make a small bow using the Rupple Ribbon Green Grass. Adhere it to the side of the container. Add buttons to the center of the bow. Punch leaves from the Chili and Mango Flame cardstock, crumple up and then glue behind the buttons and ribbon.

Hi everyone! It has been one whirlwind of a month for me. I got married on the 13th and I guess with all the running and trying to get everything ready I wore myself down. Thus I wound up with a stomach virus the day after I got married and when we got back in town I got a terrible head cold. I am just now starting to feel better and getting back into the swing of things.
This month on the Robin’s Nest store they have their Crackle Glitter cardstock and Neon Dew Drops on sale for 20% off. Also the Robin’s Nest is teaming up with Epiphany Crafts this month. I got to to try the Scalloped Circle punch out on all the projects I created.
When I first seen the Crackle Glitter cardstock my mind was thinking on all the possible things I could create for Spring and Easter . Also I wanted to create something that could hold treats or some goodies in it too. I came up with this cute little toilet paper roll treat holder which was so easy and quick to make. Then I started envisioning different holidays I could create using toilet paper rolls and I came up with a USA/4th of July and a Fall/Thanksgiving theme also.
Robin’s Nest Supplies Used:
Blue Glitter Crackle Cardstock
Orange Glitter Crackle Cardstock
Pink Glitter Crackle Cardstock
Purple Glitter Crackle Cardstock
Neon Mini Dew Drops
Chocolate Brown Classic Glitter Cardstock
Ochre Classic Glitter Cardstock
Lavender Glitter Classic Cardstock
Red Glitter Sorbet Cardstock
Eggs Glitter Swirls
Alpha Sticker Letters
Other Supplies Used:
Sizzix SU Bigz XL Tasteful Trim
Taffy Folk Art Paint
Scallop Punch and Bubble Caps Clear Scalloped Circle 25
First off you will need three empty toilet paper rolls for these projects. I painted the inside of each of the rolls and let them dry. I used Mod Podge and coated the inside generously and then I used a big binder clip and pinched the bottom of the tube closed with it. Let the roll dry real well before you remove the binder clip.
Now I’m are ready to decorate. Measure the TP roll and cut a piece of Pink Glitter Crackle cardstock to cover and then Mod Podge to roll. I then cut a 2 inch strip of lime green polk a dot tissue paper and then folded in half to give me a 1 inch strip. I glued one strip at a time to the inside of the roll and cut to make fringe. I did this four times to make it look full and fluffy. Then I cut various sizes of cardstock and adhere to the top. I added a butterfly image to the front and then I used one of the Epiphany Crafts Clear Scalloped Circle 25 and stuck over the butterfly for added interest.
Now I added fringe to the bottom of the tube. I used the same steps as above but only added two rows of fringe. I used a piece of the Purple Glitter Crackle cardstock and Sizzix Tasteful Trim die to cut out the oval looking trim which I glued over the edge of the tissue fridge I had created at the bottom of the TP roll. Then I added the cute Neon Mini Dew Drops to the center of each oval. I punch small holes on each side of the roll and threaded lace through the whole and tied off.
Again thanks for stopping by and I hope this inspires you to create something fun for yourself and remember to enjoying creating!!! 🙂
I used a small paperbag (3.5X6.75″) which you can find at your locate craft store.
I folded the bag at the bottom and adhered two of the sides to the bag which this should then give you two pockets. I then inked all edges of the bag and scrapbook paper. Added a paper doilies that had been cut in half and glued that and the scrapbook paper down on the front of the bag.
The rest of the tags I embellished and placed through out the mini for added interest. Don’t you think the tags look like a good old pair of comfortable denim jeans? I do 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope this inspires you to create something fun!!!
