Teacher's Influence // DIY Back to School crafts // Come craft with me!

So I have been using Chalk Couture for a while now. I also had my eye on a Glowforge for quite a while and then finally ordered one a few months ago. I have seen people use a combination of both Chalk Couture and cut outs from a Glowforge. I think that's what pushed me to get a Glowforge, and to use them together, and get a really custom feel to my crafts. 

So I finally created something specifically for a Chalk Couture Transfer! I used the Teacher's Influence Transfer (retired) and cut out an Apple shape with my Glowforge. It was actually really easy to do. 

Come see how I used this in my Back to School 3 Tiered Tray: Click Here! 

Come see how I made this! 

Step 1: Design the Apple cut out. I use my Silhouette Business Edition software to do this. And since I have the upgraded software, I can save them into SVG's, which is needed for the Glowforge to be able to cut the design. 

Step 2: Place the Chalk Couture Transfer inside the Glowforge. It will scan the transfer so you will know what size you will be the cut out to be. 

Step 3: Upload the design into the Glowforge App and size it according to the size of the transfer. Once you find the perfect size, take the transfer out and replace with preferred material. I used MDF, which is a smooth wood material. It's easy to paint and is so smooth.

Step 4: Hit the print button and watch the magic happen! I love watching it work! 

Step 5: Once cooled, take out Apple Cut out out. Get all your paint supplies ready. 

Step 6: I love to lay my projects on a masking material so it doesn't move around while painting. I use the masking on wood products that need a little protection while using the laser. 

Step 7: I used black paint and applied it with a sponge. I'm telling you that this is a game changer! It goes on like butter! So easy to do and clean up is pretty easy. You can either wash sponge and let air dry or you can wait for the section on paint to dry on it and then cut it off. I have used makeup wedge sponge so many times by cutting them up! 

Step 8: Once the paint is dry, it's time to chalk! Grab you Chalk Pastes and give them a good stir. Add in some distilled water if needed but then new Chalk Pastes are amazing! Grab your transfer and a Fuzzing Cloth and fuzz well. I mean REALLY FUZZ! Use the back courser side of needed. You don't want to pull any paint off the Apple cut out. 

Step 9: Lay your fuzzed transfer down and start applying you Chalk Paste to the transfer. I used 2 different Chalk Pastes colors. 

Step 10: Once you are done applying Chalk Paste, lift transfer up and wash it well. Let air dry and once dry, replace backer sheet

You are all done! Now it's time to show off your new DIY Teacher's Influence Apple you made! 


It may seem like a lot of steps, but I promise it is really easy! 

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

I know I am!

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. Want to see how I made it? Click Here! 

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? 

I know I am! 

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

4th of July 3 Tiered Tray // Come Chalk with Me! // 2021

 

I had so much fun buying and creating items for this years 4th of July. I just bought a Glowforge about a month ago, and I couldn't wait to use it! If you don't know what a Glowforge is, it's a Laser Printer that cuts, engraves and scores all kinds stuff like wood, fabric, leather, paper, Plexiglas (acrylic), Delrin (acetal), mylar, rubber, Corian, foods, and more. Glowforge can also engrave all of the above plus glass, coated metal, marble, anodized aluminum, titanium, some phones, tablets, and laptops, and more. So pretty much a fancy crafting machine! 

Want more info on the Glowforge? Click Here! 

Some of the items that I chalked and some items I created my own files and cut in the Glowforge. Plus some items I bought too. 

How many Rae Dunn items do you see?

Come see how I styled my 4th of July 3 Tiered Tray! 


Top Tier

This tier starts with a red, white and blue wooden beaded garland with a wooden tag with says God Bless America. Next to that is a wooden Star with a flag print from Hobby Lobby (last year). Then is the Blue Matte Rae Dunn USA Mug from Marshalls. Inside the mug is a sign that I made from a scrap piece of wood and I created the design myself and cut it out on my Glowforge. Then I painted it and glued it on to the scrap piece of wood. Behind the sign and inside the mug are some glitter stars on sticks from Dollar Tree. There is a thin vintage garland that starts on the top tier and continues throughout all of the tiers. 


Middle Tier

Starting on the Left side, is a red & white striped small bowl that came from the dollar section at Target a few years ago. Inside that is a plastic ice cream bowl that came in a set (see bottom tier for the rest) of 4. Next is the small shabby chic USA sign that I made from a piece of scrap wood and Chalk Couture transfer and Chalk Paste. On top of that is a hanging decoration on a vintage 4th of July little girl from Hobby Lobby. On the right is a Rae Dunn Brave Mug. Inside of the mug are some more glitter stars on sticks from Dollar Tree. In front of the mug is a small wooden sign that says America from Hobby Lobby. The thin vintage garland continues on this tier too. 

Bottom Tier

From the left, I painted 2 old cans with chalk paint in white and blue and sanded them down a bit. Then there is a small blue with while stars bowl - that came in a set with the red & white striped bowl from the middle tier- from the dollar spot at Target. Inside that bowl is a Rae Dunn USA mug. Next to that is another red painted can. Inside of the can is a Freedom sign from Hobby Lobby. In the middle is a Rae Dunn flag candle with Brave writer under the flag(2020). On the right is a Rae Dunn America Mug. Inside of the Mug are 2 Rae Dunn Spatulas -Large has a Americana Top Hat and says Brave and the Small on says Home of the Brave. In the back is the 3 other ice cream bowls in fun red, white and blue patterns. These also have spoons inside. The thin vintage garland continues and finishes under this tier.
