Tip Tuesday– Glue

Tip Tuesday– Glue

I am constantly on the search for glue either I have run out or I have the wrong glue for the project I am working on.  Did I mention this happens constantly?! I think I could drive to Michael's with my eyes closed. 

There are just sometimes you try to use a glue stick and even though it says it dries clear, it dries like shown above. Which is frustrating when you sit down to craft for a set period of time but you don't have the correct supplies needed for the project.

Oh The Places You'll Go Card and a Silhouette Portrait Giveaway!

Oh The Places You'll Go Card and a Silhouette Portrait Giveaway!

Cards are something that I have always tried to make. Let's face it cards are expensive and if you aren't sentimental the ones off the shelf usually end up in the garbage a month or two after receiving them. This is why I try to make cards. One I think they are a little more meaningful and two I like to make a card that you would want to put out on display! 

This month I joined up with a group of 26 crafters and bloggers for a card swap. How it works is that I make 26 handmade cards mail them out to the organizer and two weeks later I will get back 26 unique handmade cards. How fun! Now I have been diligently working on these cards for the past couple of weeks and am finally ready to mail them out and anxiously await for the unique 26 to come back in the mail. I'll be sure to share them in the coming weeks. 

Make sure to stay until the end of this post for a chance to win a Silhouette Portrait!

Craft Fail– Chevron "Stained Glass" and $500 Giveaway

On Friday, Weekend Craft reached over 1,000 Facebook fans! We could not be more ecstatic! And because we love our readers we thought this could be a great way to reward them. Make sure to stick around to the bottom of the post and enter to win $500 just in time for Valentine's Day. 

Ever just have a vision for a project, clear as day, but it just does not come out at all or even close to how you expected? This is another addition to add to our craft fail shelf. I had recently heard that Mod Podge came out with sheer tinted colors. You've probably seen people on Pinterest tinting mason jars different colors, you can use the sheer tint Mod Podge to do that. 

So why couldn't I do that on a glass frame in a chevron pattern?! Sort of creating a stained glass effect.
