Back to School 3 Tiered Tray // Come Craft with me!

Finally all 3 kids start school on Monday and I knew I had to celebrate by decorating my 3 tiered tray with a Back to School theme! I had so much fun creating personalized items for the kids. I'm not sure if you can tell I'm really excited for the kids to go back to school! 

I created most if these items from either Chalk Couture products or cutting items with my Glowforge. I had so much fun creating everything from designing, cutting out the pieces, chalking it to putting it all together on the 3 tiered tray. Plus I had to add in the perfect Rae Dunn mugs! 

Want more info on the Glowforge? Click Here!

Come see how I styled my Back to School 3 Tiered Tray! 

Top Tier

Starting from the left, I took a small tag and Chalked a Lightbulb using 1 of the 12 mini transfers from the Back to School Transfer. I used the Bumblebee Chalk Paste

Next, I cut out an Apple shape on my Glowforge and then painted it with black chalkboard paint. Then I used a Chalk Couture Transfer called "A Teacher's Influence". I used Bright White & Peony Chalk Paste as the colors. 

Next to that I used some Elmers Glue bottle, glue stick and some pencils as decorations. 

Middle Tier 

From the left, I Started with a Dream Rea Dunn Mug that is filled with pens and pencils. 

In front of that is an apple I cut on my Glowforge. I painted it with red paint and used a while paint marker to accent it. 

In the middle is a Back to School Sign I made using my Glowforge. This is a 2 piece sign. I painted the back section while. I painted the top section red. I then glued it together. 

Behind that on the right is a Rise & Shine Rae Dunn Mug. Inside the mug is some pens, pencils and a Custom Ruler with Kellan's name on it. I added his name with my Glowforge. 

Hanging off of the ruler is a small tag that I chalked a school bus onto. I used the Back to School Transfer. I added a small blue ribbon to the top. 

I used pencils to decorate.

Bottom Tier

Starting from the left is a Practice Makes Perfect Rae Dunn Mug. Inside the mug is Pens, Pencils and a personalized ruler with Arley's name on it. 

Hanging from the ruler is a Small tag with a Apple I cut out with my Glowforge. I painted the apple red before glueing onto the tag. 

In the middle is a pencil leaner sign I made using my Glowforge.  See how I made it her on my Tik Tok page: HERE

On the right side is a yellow Shine Bright Rae Dunn mug. Inside is some highlighters and a Small Tag that I chalked A+ again using the Back to School Transfer. I used Couture Teal Chalk Paste.

I then made 3 custom erasers with each of the kids names. I used my Glowforge to Score the names into the erasers. I then used my Glowforge to cut of the grades each of them will be in this year. 

Between the Tiers

Hanging between the Tiers is a Back to School banner that I made. I used my Glowforge to cut out all the letters and them painted and glued them on. 


Are you excited for your kids to go back to school?

August Club Couture - Kitchen Rules // Come chalk with me!

Kitchen décor is always a favorite! The August 2021 Club Couture™ Transfer takes subway art to a fun, farm-inspired level with a mix of fonts and phrases sure to delight. Show off your household rules all together in one color or change up colors on individual lines. Use it all together or select your favorite line(s) for a separate project.

This Transfer is an evergreen, all-year-round gift that keeps on giving! It looks great in the warm and fresh, country color palette we’ve chosen: Black Velvet, Sage, and Shimmer Copper, but it can also really cook in other colors of your choosing.



Supplies Included:

-Club Couture Transfer: Kitchen Rules
-Chalkology® Paste Singles: Black Velvet, Sage, Shimmer Copper

Supplies Needed:

-Surface: Double-Sided Box Frame (9" × 12")
-ToolsMini SqueegeesTransfer TrimmersColor TraysFuzzing ClothMulti-Tool


Color and Placement Suggestions

-Shimmer Copper: Swirls, rooster, spatula 
-Sage: “say please”, “enjoy family time” 
-Black Velvet: Other remaining sentiments

Follow these instructions to complete this project:

1. Remove your Transfer from its packaging and carefully peel off the Transfer Backer Sheet.

2. “Fuzz” the Transfer by gently pressing onto a Fuzzing Cloth and carefully pulling it upward. This will make the Transfer easier to remove from the surface after you’ve applied the paste.

3. Center the Transfer on the surface, and smooth it out to ensure it has properly adhered and that there are no air bubbles or wrinkles.

4. Knead your Chalkology Paste Singles. Cut open the corner of each packet and squeeze the desired amount of paste onto a Color Tray, using a new tray for each color.

5. Smooth a generous amount of Chalkology Paste over the Transfer using a squeegee or Multi-Tool (see “Color and Placement Suggestions”). As you are working through each detail and color, squeegee the excess paste off as evenly as possible and scrape it back into the tray. The more excess paste you remove, the better the result will be.

6. For best results, use the chalk-and-pull method: Once you have finished chalking the top section of the design, peel back the Transfer just past the chalked portion and let the paste dry. This will allow you to work in smaller sections without having the paste dry in the screen, making the Transfer difficult to remove. To prevent any stretching in the Transfer, peel from the center or from both corners, instead of peeling diagonally.

7. Once that section is dry, lay the Transfer back down and smooth out the unchalked section of the Transfer. Ensure that the next section is fully adhered, and repeat these steps for the remainder of the Transfer.

8. Slowly peel back the Transfer. Immediately clean the Transfer with cool water and a Board Eraser. Do not leave the Transfer in water or let it soak.

9. Dry the Transfer flat with the sticky side up.

10. Once the Transfer has been washed and dried, reapply the Transfer Backer Sheet and store it flat.

11. Relish your creation and embrace the beauty of homemade projects!

My 4th of July Mantle for 2021! Come craft with me!

I love decorating for the 4th of July! I love the colors and the feeling it give me - I love my Country and I love to celebrate it! I had a lot of fun creating new items with my Glowforge and Chalk Couture. Plus buying new items when I find them. 

How many items did I make for my mantle this year? 

Want to see my 4th of July Mantle from Last year? 

Click HERE! 


Starting on the left is the Freedom sign that I made from a found surface and Chalk Couture items. I loved this sign so  much that I packed it away to use it again. I used 2 retired Chalk Couture Transfers - Freedom and Homespun Stars. I used 3 Chalk Pastes in  Candy AppleBlue Jay (retired) and Bright White. I found this surface at Hobby Lobby on clearance. I painted it with black chalkboard paint. 


Next to Freedom sign is a Land of the Free sign that I made from a piece of scrap wood, scrapbook paper and Chalk Couture items. I sanded the scrap wood and added the scrapbook paper with Modge Podge. After that dried, I added one more coat on top. Once that dried, I took the Home of the Brave Transfer (retired) and used a portion of it. Then I used Black Velvet Chalk Paste

On top of that sign is a small sign I made from a wood scrap. I painted it with blue paint and sanded the edges to give it a vintage feel. Then I used the Star Cutout Pattern Transfer, and used just the Star & Stripes  Forever portion. I just used the Stars & Stripes section. Then I used Bright White Chalk Paste.

The next sign was another sign I made from a scrap of wood. I sanded it and painted it with white paint. After the paint was dry, I sanded the edges to give it a vintage feel. Then I used Herringbone Transfer (retired) with Shimmer Splash Chalk Paste. I let the dry and then I used a portion of the Home of the Brave Transfer. I used just the July portion of the saying Fourth of July. I used Candy Apple Chalk Paste




Next to the July sign is a Stars & Stripes Forever sign that I made from a clearance frame and Chalk Couture items. I painted the front of the frame with white chalkboard paint. I sanded the edges for a vintage feel. The 1st transfer I used was the Star with little starts inside from the Star Cutout Pattern Transfer and  then I used Cadet Chalk Paste. Once that dried, I used the Stars and Stripes Forever portion from the Star Cutout Pattern Transfer and used Candy Apple Chalk Paste.

On top of that sign is a sign I made from scrap wood, Polkadot Chalk Couture Transfer, a cutout from my Glowforge and paint.  I sanded my scrap wood and then painted it with white paint. Then I used the Polkadot Transfer(retired) with Candy Apple Chalk Paste. I then cut the USA on my Glowforge and then painted it with blue paint. Once it was dry, I glued it on! Easy Peasy! 


On the right side, I have my Rae Dunn Let Freedom Ring door hanger from Marshalls. 

Next to that is a large 2 piece America/Celebrate wooden tags set. The set is so large, I just stacked them together. I bought it at Marshalls. 

On top of the Tag Set is a 3 piece Wooden Flag set that I purchased from a local maker named Megan. She makes all kinds of signs and fun wooden items! I love to support other local small makers! 

Now on the left hand bottom side is a Home of the Free sign shipped like the United States. I bought this at Hobby Lobby. 

Next is a United We Stand box art that I bought on clearance from Hobby Lobby. 

Next to that is an wooden anchor that I also used during the year. 

On the top left of the wood burning stove is an America Sign that I made from Scrap wood, paint, Chalk Couture items and my Glowforge. First I sanded the scrap wood and then painted it. I sanded it after it was dry to give it a vintage look. I then used a Chalk Couture June Club Transfer from a previous year that I bought it a special sale. I then used Candy Apple Chalk Paste. I then cut out the work America on my Glowforge and painted it blue. Once dry, I glued it under the USA silhouette. 

On top of the America sign is a wooden firework set from the Dollar Spot at Target. 

The next is a Boom sign that I made from scrap wood, paint and my Glowforge. I sanded the wood, then painted it red. Once dry, I sanded it to give it a vintage look. I then cut out Boom with a firework under it. Then I painted it with white paint. Once dry, I glued it on.

On the right side there is a set of 3 Wooden Stars Cutouts from Chalk Couture. They come in size small, medium and large. I used the Star Cutout Pattern Transfer, which is made for these wooden stars. For the large Start I used Shimmer Splash Chalk Paste, the middle star I used Candy Apple Chalk Paste, and for the small star I used  Candy Apple Chalk Paste and Cadet Chalk Paste and I used the ombre technique. 


I made this USA sign last year from a surface from Hobby Lobby, ribbon and Chalk Couture items. I had some of the individual letter transfers (retired), so I was able to do USA. I used  Candy Apple Chalk Paste and then finished them off with a ribbon accent on one side. 

The Ribbon banner was used for Mason's 1st birthday. He is now 4 so I have gotten use out of it for sure! 

Want to know how many items I made for my mantle? 
13!

 Do you make stuff for your home? Let me know! I would love to hear all about it!
