My take on May's Club Couture - Sweet Lemon Grove // Come chalk with me!

I absolutely loved this months Club Couture transfer! It's just perfect for spring and summer time! With a few different added in options, you could make this transfer in so many ways! 

You could place it in the kitchen and make a Lemon Drop! Sounds yummy! 


Ready to see how I made it? 

Step 1: Grab all your supplies that you will need. This makes it so much easier so you don't have to get up while chalking. I didn't use the trays since I have the jars of each chalk paste. Always stir your paste colors before you use them. If they feel a little dry, add a little bit of distilled water to it and stir well. 

Step 2: I used the main part of the transfer so I cut off the extra 2 pieces off. 

Step 3: Time to Fuzz Fuzz FUZZ! These newer transfers seem really sticky so fuzz it well so it doesn't stick too much to the surface. 


Step 4: Lay your transfer down onto your surface. Make sure its completely flat. 

Step 5: Make a game plan of where you want your paste colors to go. I went by the instructions and used the Storm Paste for the letters, the Lemon in Bumblebee Paste and the leaves and accent pieces in Meadow PasteI used the Small Squeegees for each paste color. Have your pastes close to you for easy use. 

Step 6: I started from the top and worked my way down. Once I chalked everything from the GROVE up, I used the paste and pull method. Thats when you lift up the portion of the transfer, so the paste doesn't dry out and mess up when you wait till the end to lift up the transfer. I laid the transfer back down carefully. I also pasted a little thick to give myself a little extra time. Then removed the extra paste right before I used the paste and pull method. 

Step 7: Lift up transfer and wash it off. The faster you wash it, the cleaner it will be. Use the Board Eraser to get it really clean, really easy. Its a great tool! After washing, lay it upside down so it can dry and you can put on the backing. These transfers are meant to be used 8-12 times each! But I have heard of people using them way more than that! Now clean your tools. During the chalking, I will wipe them will baby wipes, but when I am done, I just put them in a mason jar filled will water. These are easy to clean too. I've never even needed soap to clean them. 

Step 8: Display your awesome chalk art!

Here's a video on how I made it:

What Paste colors could you choose? There are so many options, the outcome possibilities are unlimited!

A Lemon Drop sounds perfect to me!

May 2021 Club Couture - Sweet Lemon Grove // Come chalk with me!

 We’ve designed this one as a beautiful statement all on its own, but don’t be afraid to pull out the bits and pieces and create something new. You want a 5” x 5” Double-Sided Box Frame (item S203104) with just the lemon and leaves on it? Make it! You want to build a statement that says, “Home. Where troubles melt like lemon drops”? Do it! You want a gorgeous Reclaimed Metal Tray (item S193118) with the full, large “GROVE” design? You’ll love it! You want to chalk a Tag Mini (item S194121) with the phrase, “Squeeze the day”? You can do it! You want a sassy little dance-inspired piece that says “Sweet GROOVE”? We’re sure you could make that happen with just a bit of finagling.

What we’re saying is that when Chalk CoutureTM gives you lemons, you can make some pretty sweet lemon-themed projects!

These are just a few of our ideas. We can’t wait to see what you’ll create; we’re certain your designs are going to be so sweet.


Supplies Needed

Club Couture Transfer: Sweet Lemon Grove
Surface: Reclaimed Metal Tray (White, 9" x 12")


Chalkology Paste Singles: Bumblebee, Meadow & Storm

Tools: Mini SqueegeeTransfer TrimmersColor TraysFuzzing Cloth

Color and Placement Suggestions
Bumblebee: Lemon
Meadow: Leaves, lines, and banner outline
Storm: All text



Follow these instructions to complete this project:

1. Remove your Transfer from its packaging.

2. Cut along the Transfer’s provided cut lines to separate the elements. Use a marker to label each element’s Backer Sheet to make cleanup easier when matching it to its coordinating Transfer element.

3. Carefully peel off the Transfer Backer Sheet of the largest element.

4. “Fuzz” the Transfer element by gently pressing onto a Fuzzing Cloth and carefully pulling it upward to collect a bit of lint (this helps to more easily remove the Transfer from the surface after you’ve applied the paste). You may repeat this a few times if your Transfer seems extra sticky.

5. Position your Transfer on the surface. Smooth out the Transfer to adhere, ensuring there are no bubbles or wrinkles.

6. Knead each Chalkology Paste Single, cut or tear open the top, and squeeze the desired amount onto a Color Tray, using a new tray for each color.

7. Use a small amount of paste on your squeegee to smooth it over the Transfer, beginning at the top (see “Color and Placement Suggestions”).

8. 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.

9. For best results, use the chalk-and-pull method: Chalk approximately the top third of the Transfer (see “Color and Placement Suggestions”). Before the paste dries, pull back the chalked section of the Transfer, leaving the rest of the Transfer adhered to the surface. To prevent any stretching in the Transfer, peel from the center or from both corners, instead of peeling diagonally.

10. Let the chalk paste air dry (or use our Quick Dry Tool). Gently lay the Transfer back down over the chalked section. Ensure that the next section is fully adhered, and repeat these steps for the middle portion and the bottom third of the Transfer.

11. Remove your Transfer from the surface and immediately clean the Transfer with cool water (do not let it soak).

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

13. Once the Transfer is washed and dried, reapply the Transfer Backer Sheet and store flat.

14. Relish your creation!

April Club Couture - What If You Fly? // Come Chalk with Me!

This month’s Club Couture™ Chalk Transfer design will give you wings to fly! The combination of cut-apart elements will give you the courage to dive forward with a planned design or just wing it.

Birds can be used as they are or repeated to create a whole flock. They look incredibly pleasant sitting on the included wire-element and are great for adding an accent color to match your space. Mix things up with any of your favorite Transfers by adding these classy and sassy bird silhouettes. Put a bird on it, making every day a happy bird-day.

Two different inspirational sentiments feature a mix of hand-lettering and a block-style font. Use them on a variety of surfaces throughout your home to create a whole set to display in a tiered tray, on a vignette, or to give as a gift set. Elements and sentiments can be mixed and matched to fill large or small surfaces.

This month’s Club Couture subscription includes Chalkology Paste Singles in Couture Teal, Peachy Keen, and Shimmer Silver. Recreate this look on a Couture Gallery™ Aiden Style White Frame (black, 9” x 12”, item S183127). The look as shown will use only two of your three paste colors, meaning you can save the third for a whole other project!

These are just a few of our ideas. We can’t wait to see what you’ll create; we’re certain your designs are going to be so fly.

Supplies Needed

Club Couture Transfer: What If You Fly
Surface: Couture Gallery Board Aiden White Frame
(Black, 9" × 12", item S183127)


Chalkology Paste Singles: Couture Teal, Peachy Keen,
Shimmer Silver
Optional: Chalkology Paste: Bright White

Tools: Mini Squeegee, Transfer Trimmers, Color Trays, Fuzzing Cloth

Color and Placement Suggestions

Bright White (optional) or Shimmer Silver: “What if I fall?” portion of the sentiment, and “–Erin Hanson” credit

Shimmer Silver: “What if you fly?” portion of the sentiment and wire line element

Couture Teal: Birds

Peachy Keen: Not specified for this project. Use however you’d like, or save it for another chalking experience!
Follow these instructions to complete this project:

1. Remove your Transfer from its packaging.

2. Cut along the Transfer’s provided cut lines to separate the elements. Use a marker to label each element’s Backer Sheet to make cleanup easier when matching it to its coordinating Transfer element.

3. Carefully peel off the Transfer Backer Sheet of the element you’re using first.

4. “Fuzz” the Transfer element by gently pressing onto a Fuzzing Cloth and carefully pulling it upward to collect a bit of lint (this helps to more easily remove the Transfer from the surface after you’ve applied the paste). You may repeat this a few times if your Transfer seems extra sticky.

5. Centering left to right, position the sentiment near the center top of the surface. Smooth out the element to adhere, ensuring there are no bubbles or wrinkles.

6. Centering left to right, position the wire/line element approximately 21⁄4" inches below the sentiment, leaving sufficient space for the birds to sit on the wire line. Smooth out the element to adhere, ensuring there are no bubbles or wrinkles.

7. Knead each Chalkology Paste Single, cut or tear open the top, and squeeze the desired amount onto a Color Tray, using a new tray for each color.

8. Use a generous amount of paste on your squeegee and smooth it over the Transfer elements (see “Color and Placement Suggestions”).

9. Once the screen portions of the design are completely covered, 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.
 
10. Before the paste dries, slowly peel back the Transfer. To prevent any stretching in the Transfer, peel from the center instead of peeling diagonally. Immediately clean the Transfer with cool water (do not let it soak).

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

12. Repeat steps 8–10 for the wire line element.

13. Once the paste has dried, repeat steps 3–5 and 8–10 for the bird accents.

14. Once all Transfer elements are washed and dried, reapply the coordinating Backer Sheet to each and store flat.

15. Relish your creation!

March Club Couture - Wild & Free - Styled different ways! // Come Chalk with me!

 I love seeing how other designers create the Club Couture Transfer each month. Everyone gets the same transfer, but everyones creativity is their own. With some many colors of pastes, inks and surfaces, the possibilities are endless! 

Creativity is most fun when it’s wild and free. This month’s Club Couture Transfer involves a mix of organic flowers and a light-hearted sentiment, blended together in a satisfying oval shape. The movement in the design gives an exciting, “wild & free” feeling, while the white space around it keeps the climate of your project serene and restful.

This design works well as a one-and-done, chalked all in one color. Or if you’re using multiple colors, we recommend the chalk-and-pull technique for best results.  

Check out some of my favorites below by some amazing designers! 











Don't you just love all these! They are all done by the same transfer Design, but they come out so different! Love them all! It's amazing how our creativity can be so different but yet so awesome!  

I can't wait to see what April Club Couture transfer will be. Want to read more on Club Couture and how it works? Click here to read my post all about Club Couture and how it works.
