Chalk It UP and Artfully Sent

I enjoy being a vendor at many crops throughout the year & am so blessed to have made so many friends because of these FUN crops!  I always look forward to these days together!

A recent crop I was at, was near the Downingtown area, at East Brandywine Baptist Church…OH - what a FUN day we had together!! J

I always prepare a make n take item for them to create during the day…something they can create in about 15 minutes or so. 

It’s always fun to think of what NEW technique I can share with them at each event!!

For this year’s fall crop, I showcased our NEW Artfully Sent cartridge, liquid glass, metallic markers, Chalk It Up papers & more…

Take a peek!! J

The 4x3 Smile card, was cut directly from our Artfully Sent cartridge…so EASY!!

The paper pack we used is a favorite of many - Chalk It Up!!
Did you notice the swirl strip at the bottom of the Smile card?

I LOVE these “extra” 1/2 inch strips that we call a “zip-strip”.  Zip strips can be used in so many ways!! I LOVE using these!

By adding liquid glass to a stamped image, it gives it more dimension & creates a life-like look!! 

I love to add liquid glass to the veins of the flower petals(see picture)…and then I also used “glass” to make some of the stars pop that are printed on the Chalk It Up paper design. 

Liquid Glass can be used as an embellishment, but it also makes a wonderful, strong glue as well!!

The other items we used to create this make n’ take were

**Metallic markers…we traced the word “Smile”

***Teal Shimmer Trim

***Gold Sequins

***Chalk It Up asst. (puffy heart)

***Gold Washi Tape

I will often create a 2 page workshop using the make n take item we created at the crop. 

For this set of pages, I used our Make It From Your Heart, vol. 2, pattern 14 to create the layout below. chalk It UP_2pg kit_EB_DSC_0997
This turned out to be a FUN, but quick layout!! 

If you are interested, I do have a few of these 2 page kits still available for purchase.

The items in this kit are all pre-stamped, and ready for you to put together! J

The 2 page kit is $10 plus shipping, or if you are local, you are welcome to pick it up.

To complete this layout, you would need…

1. adhesive (3D foam is always fun)

2. Optional - liquid glass if you’d like to add some more dimension to other parts of this layout. 

Everything else is included in the kit!!!
Also included are instructions on how to put these pages together. 

Here are a few more close up shots from the 2 page Chalk It Up kit.
