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!

My Valentines Day Mantel // Come check it out!

This year it took me quite a while to take down my Christmas decorations. I was just so done with the Holidays and I wasn't looking forward to putting everything away. I want to say it took me 3 weeks into January before everything was put away. So I was in no hurry to decorate for Valentines day. I was more excited to create my Valentines 3 Tiered Tray (Click to read all about it). 

I did have a few items that I was really excited to make from the Chalk Couture Winter Warm-Up Mini Launch. With 10 new Transfers, most Valentines related, I knew I could create some awesome items for my Mantel. Plus I have a few Valentines transfers from previous catalog launches, so I had my alot to pick from to create my mantel. 

Come check out my Mantel! 

Can you guess how many items I chalked on my Mantel? 

4! 

Lets start from left to right: 

1st item on the Mantel is the Tile that I added scrapbook paper with Modge Podge. Once that dried, I used the Confection Candy Hearts Transfer. This is a great and easy craft to do with anyone! 

2nd item is Large Magnetic Chalk Board that I found at Marshalls! This was a great find! and I knew that this would be great for the Wings to Fly Transfer. I used bright white and I loved how it turned out. Want to see how I made this: Click Here! 



3rd Item is small wooden light pink block that says "Kiss Me". This block came in a 3 piece set from the Dollar Spot at Target for $3!  

4th item is a Painted Wooden sign that I used the retired  Love Heart Transfer in Bright White Chalk Paste

5th item is a metal bike sign that I got at Hobby Lobby I think on clearance. It was just too cute to pass up! 



6th item is the 2nd Pink  "Love You" block from the 3 pack from the Dollar Spot at Target. 

7th item is a large pink heart from the Dollar Tree that I painted light pink. Then I used the Hugs and Kisses Transfer on the heart in Candy Apple Red Chalk Paste

8th item is a Red thick tag that says "XOXO" in white writing from Marshalls. 

9th item is an Red sign that says "I Love You'. I bought this sign at Marshalls years ago. On the edges is has small red hearts. 

10th item is the 3rd white block that says "Be Mine" from the 3 pack from the Dollar Spot at Target. 

11th item- The banner hanging below that says "Happy Valentines". Ive had this for a few years and got it from the Dollar Spot in Target. 

There you have my Valentines Day Mantel. 4 of the 11 items I made myself with Chalk Couture!
