I have a few minutes here in the SLC airport as I head to AZ
The real reason I will be in AZ this weekend, is that it’s
Eric’s ‘20th High School Reunion’. I think that I thought I would
feel a lot older when we were attending these types of things! But nope… we
feel super young still (wink)…
It’s been a flurry of activity this morning, but I did
finish this project.. this one is just for me. I have given all the other
hearts I filled away! But I made this for my room… I made it so that I could
change and update the messages as time goes. This is a collection of 3 hearts hanging from a rack in my
studio- I spray painted the boxes w/ glossy black spray paint left over from
painting the hand-me-down bunk beds for Capri and Connor. I only painted the
tops. I then printed up a few things… for 2 of the hearts, I printed the
message on to inkjet transparency, and used the enclosed heart window as a
template to cut the new window to fit. I used Ranger archival black ink to
stamp a little texture images onto the transparency as well.
I then printed
a favorite scripture on a piece of Scenic Route ledger paper, and also used the
heart shaped window as a template for the inside of the box.
Not too long ago, I was at Forever 21, and started
specifically looking for clearance or broken jewelry that I could use on my
projects. They’ll usually give a little extra discount off the already super
cheap prices if it’s damaged. – I kinda pieced it together and draped it on the
inside of the shadow box under the printed words.
I added some of the necklace to the dangle chandelier
I really love how this turned out… I love the colors, and
the vibe, and the reminders!
you can grab a heart box kit HERE from www.houseof3.com.
THIS kit is brand new to House of 3 … it's a totally printable kit to make a Halloween album. It's a fun mixture of several awesome kits and Hof3 product… I am working on an actual CLASS that will be available as well on Hof3… seriously, i could use more hours in the day!
***i needed something QUICK and easy to have on hand to make thank yous for people at the school, so i took the contents of the Hello Teacher kit, and just made it simple to buy, print and tie onto a bag of candy, or chocolate bar or starbucks gift card or whatever… i like to cut the little faces out and put a pop-dot under the face on the tag. -it would even be nice to buy it and print it out and give it away to a teacher so they can create a quick thank you too! everyone LOVES to be thanked, and so many people give so much of their time, energy and talents to make a school work…
