Happy Memorial Day From ScrapbookSteals.com

While we are taking the day off to celebrate with our families, we wanted to take a minute to say Happy Memorial Day! to all of our fans out there.

We will be back next week with another Monday Craft Madness. In the mean time be sure to check out the last day of our Memorial Day Archive Sale today.

Teresa Collins Tinsel & Company | Monday Craft Madness #15

It’s a party around here at Steals.com this week.  Our sister-site BabySteals.com is turning 7!  That’s right 7 years old! Check out some of the fun stuff planned here.

Even though it is Birthday Party time around here, a celebration is a celebration right? Today for Monday Craft Madness I wanted to share a cool idea from one of Teresa Collins’ design team members Cheri Piles. She used Teresa Collins Tinsel & Company to make a beautiful non-Christmas wreath for her door….So today’s theme is:

Switch it Up

Create something unexpected. Use a themed collection to create something non-theme specific. Here’s what Cheri created:

Cheri started off with some flat wreath bases from her local craft store.

The wreath came together pretty quickly and easily here are the first steps:

  1. Spray the two bases and star ornament white
  2. Add some clear or white glitter to the smaller wreath
  3. Set all three pieces aside to dry
  4. Cut 8 strips 1 1/2″ and 8 strips 1 1/4″
  5. Cut each strip 6″ in length for a total of 16 strips each
  6. Use the Teresa Collins Stapler or another stapler to assemble your paper chain

Once your pieces are dry take some invisible thread and hang the small wreath to the center of the large base and glue your star wood ornament to the center of the small one.

Tie your ribbon on and hot glue the larger pieces onto the base. If you like a little extra bling add some stars from the sequins package to finish it off.

Fancy Pants Be. Loved. | Monday Craft Madness #4

It’s the season of love these days and I can’t seem to get enough of Valentine’s themed products. I always want to create something for the hubby, but most years I run out of time. I was super excited that today’s collection is a Valentine’s collection. Today for Monday Craft Madness I used Be. Loved. from Fancy Pants to make a canvas for the hubby….. So today’s theme is:

Love

Create something about someone (or something) you love, for someone you love or because you love. Here’s what I created:

I saw a similar project when I was visiting the Doodlebug Design offices back during Halloween and thought it would be great to create a heart for Valentine’s Day.

I chose some of the neutral gray designs to create part of my heart and to serve as a background.

I purchased a couple of small wooden hearts from a local craft store that I covered with some of the pattern papers. I loved the dimension it added to the project.

I filled in the rest of my heart with the fantastic embellishments included in this kit. Along with a couple of photos of the hubby I really love how it turned out. Here’s hoping the hubby likes it just as much.
