DIY Tye Dye Valentines Kitchen Tea Towels // Come craft with me!

Valentines Day is almost here and I needed some Valentines Towels. So I decided to make them! Who doesn't love a good craft? These are really easy to make and can be a great family craft. 

Fun fact: According to Wikipedia, Valentine's Day, also called Saint Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentineis celebrated annually on February 14. It originated as a Christian feast day honoring one or two early Christian martyrs named Saint Valentine and, through later folk traditions, has become a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance and love in many regions of the world.

Supplies needed:

-Tea Towels
-Dye in all the colors that you want to use
-Rubber bands
-Pyrex glass pans

Step 1: Get all your supplies together. I already had most of my supplies on hand, so all I had to buy was the tea towels. 

Step 2: Put rubber bands around the tea towels. There are so many ways you can do this to create different designs. I did mine a few different ways. 

Step 3: Wet you towels until the are soaked through. Ring out any excess water. You want them wet but not soaking. 

Step 4: Time to Dye! I mixed my dyes into small bottles for easy use. Squirt the dye in all the spots that you want. You could have a pattern or make it random. Do it how ever you want! There is no wrong way to do this. 




Step 5: Once you are done adding the dyes, cover and set aside. I normally let them sit for at least 12 hours. 

Step 6: Time to rinse. I always rinse in cold water. I place a cookie cooling sheet in my sink so the tea towel doesn't sit directly in the sink. I didn't use gloves to rise, but if you are going to be moving with your hands, you might want to. I rise and turn over and rise more until there is no color rinsing from it any more. Remove the rubber band and set aside. 


Step 7: Time to wash! When I wash these, I wash with 1 dark towel I find that they wash and dry better with a large heavy towel. I was on cold with a normal amount of detergent. Dry on low too. 

Now it's time to enjoy your tea towels! I use mine all year long.

2022 Valentines 3 Tiered Tray // Come craft with me!


While getting all my Valentine Rae Dunn mugs out, I have realized that I have just as many Valentines mugs as I do Christmas mugs 😳. I do have a few doubles that I need to get rid of too. I love Valentines Day since it's all lovey dovey and a small token of candy makes the kids happy. Thats a win in my book! I found these really great cards this year from Home Goods and they were so cute and cheap! Also a win in my book! 
As you know, I love to decorate my 3 tiered tray for each holiday. And Valentines is always so fun since it's the next holiday after Christmas. My daughter loves this set since it is so full of pinks! 

Now let me show you how I styled my Valentines 3 tiered tray!

Top Shelf
From the left, I have a wooden Sweet Shop from a valentines block set from Target. Next is a red XOXO Rae Dunn mug. On top of the mug is a little wooden sign shaped as a rolling pin that I picked up from Hobby Lobby. Inside the mug is a few glitter hearts on sticks. Hanging from the mug is a metal/wood heart from Hobby Lobby. There are also red glitter hearts on the bottom of the shelf. 

Middle Shelf
From the left I have a Wink Wink Rae Dunn Mug. Inside the mug are some glitter hearts along with a set of silicone spatulas. The red spatula is Rae Dunn and the white spatula is from Target. In the middle there is a wooden gum ball machine from the Wooden block set from Target. Next is a light pink Perfect Match Rae Dunn mug. Inside are some more glitter hearts. There are more glitter heart in the bottom of the shelf. 
 
Bottom Shelf
From the left, we start with a light pink Soul Mate Rae Dunn mug. Inside the mug is a glitter heart and a Tye Dyed Tea Towel that I made for Valentines day. In the middle is a pink bowl that I picked up at Ikea a few years ago. Inside the bowl is a cookie set I received from an old friend, Kristie Anagnos. She set a cute little valentines pack. 

Which item is your favorite?

February Club Couture- Take the long way home // Come chalk with me!

We want to ride our bicycles! February’s Club Couture Transfer is a reminder to enjoy the journey. With a vintage bicycle design, a dreamy bubble frame, and the sentiments “take the long way home” and “find joy in the journey”, this design will help you take the long way home. Your shipment this month also includes Berry, Lakeshore, and Ocean Mist Chalkology® Paste Singles.

Ready to start this months creation? Follow along! 

Supplies Included

Club Couture Chalk Transfer® design: Take the Long Way Home 

Chalkology® Paste Singles: Berry, Lakeshore, and Ocean Mist

Additional Supplies Needed

Surface: Aiden Style White Frame (9" × 12") 

Chalkology® Paste: Bright White

Tools: Color Trays, Fuzzing Cloth, Mini Squeegee, Multi-Tool, Detail Tool

Color and Placement Suggestions

Berry: bicycle basket, line elements

Bright White: bicycle, “take the long way home”

Lakeshore: flowers, “find joy in the journey” 

Ocean Mist: bubble frame


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 Take the Long Way Home Transfer on the surface, and smooth it out to ensure it has properly adhered and that there are no 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. With the curved edge of your Multi-Tool, thoroughly mix your jar of Bright White Chalkology Paste and scrape excess paste from the jar sides.

6. Use your tools to apply color over your Transfer (see “Color and Placement Suggestions”). Select your tool based on whichever size best fits the various elements you are chalking. Once the screen portions of the design are completely covered, use your tools to remove excess paste as evenly as possible; excess paste can be scraped back into the tray or jar. The more excess paste you remove, the better the result will be.

7. For best results, divide your project into sections and use the chalk-and-pull method. This allows you to work in smaller sections without having the paste dry in the screen, which would give you patchy results. Chalk the top section of the design and peel back only that portion of the Transfer to let the paste dry on the surface before continuing (use the Quick Dry Tool for a faster dry). To prevent any stretching in the Transfer, peel from the center or from both corners, instead of peeling diagonally.

8. Gently lay the Transfer back down over the chalked section. Ensure that the next section is fully adhered, and repeat these steps as you work your way down the Transfer.

9. Once your design is fully chalked and before the paste dries, remove your Transfer from the surface and immediately clean the Transfer with cool water (do not let it soak).

10. Dry the Transfer flat with the sticky side up. Once completely dry, reapply the Transfer Backer Sheet and store flat.

11. Display your latest creation and enjoy life’s journey!

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!

Wings to Fly // Come chalk with me!

I fell in love with the Wings to Fly transfer when I saw it in the Winter Warm-Up mini launch. It's such a great saying in a pretty font. I had found this pretty Magnetic Chalkboard at Marshalls in a great big size. It was such a great find! I have so many great ideas and the best part it's reusable! That's what I love about the Chalk Paste... Create- Remove - Recreate again! So once I received my shipment with Wings to Fly, I just knew they were perfect together. 

This was an easy project to make. I actually had to make this twice. My 3 year old loves to hang out with me in my craft room. He's like my little chalking buddy who looks at all the fun items in my craft room. Since this is a large surface, I decided to sit on the floor and create it. After I chalked it, I pulled the transfer and went to wash it off. I didn't even think to lift it off the ground. After cleaning the transfer, which only took a few minutes, I walked back into my craft room to find that my little Mason had walked on it. He didn't even realize it. And when I said something, he felt so bad. I told his that I would easily remake it and not to worry!   And then he gave me the biggest hug. These are the moments that mom's live for. After that, I just sprayed the chalkboard down, wiped it away and rechalked it again. It was just that easy! That's one reason that I love Chalk Couture Transfers are reusable. 

Come see how I made it! 

Supplies Needed: 
Magnetic Chalkboard- Found surface from Marshalls




Step 1
Get all your supplies together. Open the Bright White Chalk Paste and stir it well using a Stir Stick



Step 2
Flip the transfer over and take off the backing carefully. Fuzz the whole transfer lightly holding down the transfer. This is the easiest way to fuzz a large transfer. Don't be afraid to fuzz it alot. If it seems really sticky, it might need quite a few fuzzings. Since the new transfers seem to be stickier, fuzz fuzz FUZZ! You don't want that to pull up the back ground up when removing the transfer. Once you are done fuzzing, grab the transfer, flip to back over and lay onto the surface. 





Step 3
Press the transfer onto the surface firmly and grab the Stir Stick and apply the Bright White Chalk Paste onto the transfer. Take the Handled Squeegee and glide the Paste all over the transfer covering all mesh areas. Since I am only using 1 color, I am able to chalk without it drying out. Once fully chalked, pull the transfer from the top to bottom holding both ends, making sure to not stretch the transfer. Now since these new transfers seem to be more stickier that the older one, evenly pulling the transfer is important. 

Step 4
Clean your transfer right away. This will ensure more uses. To clean larger transfers, I clean them in the shower. Make sure the wall is clean and place the dirty transfer on there. Use the shower head to clean with cold water. Grab your board eraser and clean both sides. Once clean, hang or lay sticky side up until dry. Once dry, apply backer and store away. 

Remember I told you about my 3 year old who stepped on it? Here it is:


And then I recreated it! Check out the finished project: 

Now enjoy your creation!
