Beach Refrigerator Magnets

It’s another very hot day in Oklahoma. How was your Tuesday?
In yesterday’s post I talked about going to Michaels and the new Mod Podge products I bought. Today, I will share with you the refrigerator magnets I made using some of the great products.
I used the podgeables, sparkle Mod Podge, dimensional magic Mod Podge and scrapbook paper with beach scenes.

I cut the scrapbook paper to fit the podgeables and then attached the scrapbook paper to the podgeables. I used the podgeables as the back of the magnet to make them more stable. I then added some sparkle to the sky of the beach scenes. 
Once that dried, I used the dimensional magic on top of the picture. Be sure to let the dimensional magic dry for at least three hours (this is where I became impatient). After everything was dry, I added magnets to the back.

Now, I have magnets with some great beach pictures.


Sea Shell Candle Holders

Hope you had a great weekend! Did you work on any new projects? Or did you take a trip? After hearing about all the great new Mod Podge products at Michaels, our family took a trip to a bigger nearby city to check it out for ourselves. Wow! I found some great things and just couldn’t decide what to get or what I wanted to make. After much debate, I decided on the sample pack of Mod Podge so that I can try it all and I got a package of podgeables.
I am changing things up in the house and have decided to go with a beach theme. So after visiting Michaels, I though it would be the perfect time to get started.
I made two candle holders with twine, shells and Mod Podge.

The first candle holder I wrapped with twine, keeping it in place with Mod Podge. I added some sparkle to a plain starfish with the new sparkle Mod Podge. Then, I placed the starfish on the twine.

On the second candle holder, I used Mod Podge, sea shells, and crushed sea shells.
I covered the bottom half of the candle holder with mod podge and crushed shells. I did this twice to get the amount of shells I wanted because with one coat it looked a little bare. Then I added a few shells.
I love how they both turned out! What do you think?

Jewelry Holder

Wow! Summer is here. It is really hot today, the outdoor thermometer says 102. So I am staying in getting laundry done and working on some craft projects. How are you staying cool?
Today I am sharing another Mod Podge project I made last weekend. I made a catch all plate to hold my jewelry.
All it took was a clear glass plate from the dollar store, some fabric, and Mod Podge. I cut the fabric to fit the plate and then attached the fabric to the bottom of the plate with Mod Podge. It was so simple. 
Now when I take off my ring it won’t just be laying on the counter and when I go looking for my necklace I will know right where it is. This would also make a great catch all plate for my husband pocket stuff. 
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Covered Baby Wipe Case

Let’s get this weekend started! Like I said in an earlier post last weekend was all about Mod Podge. Since I had it out I made lots of projects.

This little case didn’t need much fabric so I used fabric I had left over from the photo album I covered. Cutting the fabric to fit the case was a challenge since there are lots of curves and the top was more difficult with the opening. Some how I managed and got it cut out. Then using Mod Podge I placed the fabric on the case. Since the wipes are wet, I placed a layer of Mod Podge on top of the fabric to seal it.

Even with a few flaws I think it turned out pretty cute.

Do you plan on crafting this weekend?

Handmade Gift Exhange: What I Made

Hi friends! I participated in the Summer 2012 Handmade Gift Exchange over at Craftaholics Anonymous. After registering for the gift exchange I was given the name of another crafter. I was then able to see what her likes are and I could even ask her questions to find out more. After looking at the things she liked I knew right away what I wanted to make. However, if it seems to easy it usually is and I could not find what I wanted.

Then I found a charm of a paper airplane that she liked. I was thrilled! It has been a long time since I have made any jewelry so I was a little nervous. Then, once I got started on the bracelet, I was so excited  I forgot to get any pictures of the supplies I used. Oh well, the outcome of the bracelet is more important.

I look forward to hearing from my new friend when she gets the gift and getting to know her better.

Check out the Craftaholics Anonymous linky party to see all the gifts that were sent and received. If you get the chance, I would encourage everyone to participate in the next handmade gift exchange that will start November 1, 2012.
