Gecko Galz-Dog Days Of Summer


Robin here for Gecko Galz, sharing my 2 projects as a design team member for our theme this month. Dogs Days of Summer! I could not resist creating 2 very literal projects! 

I chose to work with the fab Puppy Power College Set,

I just love this college set!!

After looking through my blanks, to my surprise, I found a wood leash holder and a wood paw print, that I bet I picked up in my travels!

Check out my two projects!

After painting the wood a greyish blue, I inked the edges. I added the image peeking out of the paw print. Using a recycled gold onion bag! Yep onion bag! I glued the bag to the back of the frame using a hot glue gun, and then wrapping it around the front, tacking it down as I went around the hook. I then glued the right side down, taking care to leave a bit of the onion bag to wrap around the bottom of my second image, after glue the image down.  I need some beachy embellishments to finish the project off!

My second project goes well with the first!

Crafts Galore Encore Challenge -Anything Goes


Here its June already! Time for a new challenge over at Crafts Galore Encore. Fabulous prizes to be won every month, from different sponsors every month! 

June's Fabulous sponsor is Beccy's Place. A big Thank You to Beccy for providing the team with all the great images for us to work with!

Check out my gift bag I created using Birthday Girl! 

I was given a stack of super heavy new gift bags!! I love when I can use something I already have! I printed out the birthday girl images and colored her using color pencils. 

I found the perfect background paper that matched perfect for my colors and my theme! I love when that works out! I tied a bright orange bow around the paper and the adhered to the front of the gift bag. I cut our Birthday Girl and adhered to the background paper, taking care to ground her on 2 word balloons. I then stamped "How old are you", LOL! I though that went perfect with the smile on her face, and then created a tag. Tie that on the string of the bag with matching orange ribbon. Add some doodling around the tag and the background paper to bring it all together and add a little interest.

I hope you will join us,

La Vie Paris-Springtime in Paris with Gecko Galz


Welcome back! For the month of May at Gecko Galz, we are celebrating Paris at Springtime! I chose to work the ATCs  Chateau De Chambord Atc Set for the Gecko Galz store on Etsy and also Victorian Lovelies Set.

I love to create ATC's and thought these two sets not only fit the theme, but would be lovely as ATC's sets!

                                                                 Didn't these turn out beautiful!

                                                                     Traditional  Flat ATC's

                                                                         And my  second set

                                                                      Trifolded Stand Up ATC's

I added fancy punched out photo corners, some very fitting metal looking stickers from the Dollar Store, on the Chateau De Chambord ATC's. I love how these turned out!

Thank You for visiting,
