Staying Cool

by - July 22, 2015

It's been scorching here the last few days.  I'm not complaining (because I know what's right around the corner), but the heat does nothing for my creativity.  Last night it got a touch cooler and I was able to make a few more French match boxes.

I picked up these little boxes from Hobby Lobby.  They are slightly smaller than actual match boxes from the Dollar Store.  I used French book paper and these great religious images.
I also whipped up some new tags for my Etsy shop.  Found this wonderful image on Pinterest.
Another great Hobby Lobby find are these blank enamel tags.  I used some rub-ons that I had in my craft room to make these two. Both are available in my Etsy shop.

And remember a few weeks ago when I said I was going to try and make my own rub-on transfers using a YouTube technique?  Turns out I don't have to.  Turns out Michael's sells something called Smash Paper.  You can use it to create your own rub-ons, printing right from your computer.  Woo hoo!

  2. Hi Jeanine, your match boxes are wonderful. Love the tags too and those enamel tags are awesome. I need to pay a visit to Hobby Lobby. Thanks for the tip with the smash paper. I will for sure be trying that one too.
    Have a great day and stay cool. cm
