Remember, I'm hosting a "Sneak Peek" event on Monday May 27th at 7pm!!!
You can see some things from the new catalogue and get your new catalogue at the event (if I ran out, I will mail one to you later)
At the same time is have my annual "buy one - get one free" so you can buy some of my retired products at catalogue prices (some discounted)
Here you can see some clothes pins covered with "Gingham Garden Washi Tape"
One of the coolest new items in the new catalogue is THE SIMPLY PRESSED CLAY!!!
Well.. I have to be honest... it has taken me some time to figure out how to get them "perfect"
First: POP THEM IN THE FREEZER so that they get cold and then it is MUCH easier to pop them out of the mold.
There are 2 molds in the set: Buttons and Flowers. The flowers are easier to pop out and you don't see little imperfections as easily as from the buttons (specially the largest button gave me SO many problems!!!)
The clay is white but you can either colour it ahead of time with ink refill (very messy on your hands - just warning) or you can colour them afterwards with markers or ink.
On some of the flowers you can see some dazzling diamonds. I heard that the sparkle helps to remove the flowers from the mold - and that is true - I just think I put too much glitter in the mold :)
All the red flowers and buttons were pre coloured with "Primrose Petals" ink refill. The Pool Party button was also done with ink refill. The pool party flowers were actually coloured afterwards with pool party ink pad and blender pen.
