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!

Sneak Peek Time! Want to see what I ordered from the 2021 Spring/Summer Celebrations Suite- Come check it out!

I was so excited to see all the new transfers in the Celebration Suite for the 2021 Spring/Summer Catalog! There are so many great summer items, I will be busy for sure! If you know me, you know I love the ocean and everything about it. Remember to check back to see what I do with these new transfers. 

SKU: A2122129
  
$9.99 USD


What up, beaches?! We saw the fun neon signs of an oceanside shopping district and we were inspired to create this Transfer. You’ll be fully on trend as you use your creativity to bring this Transfer to life. You can use the full design as is, use just the “I love you” portion, or create a little somethin’ that points “to the beach.” For an artistic touch, try diluting some Chalkology® Paste and water coloring inside the arrow.

SKU: A2122130
  
$9.99 USD


This is the sort of cute little A-sized Transfer you’ll always want to have on hand, whether it’s a sunny, summery time of year, or whether you’re thinking of the people that bring brightness into your life. Pair this with our most sunshiny Chalkology® Paste—Bumblebee—for a glowy, happy feel. Also, we just gotta mention, this Transfer looks freaking adorable on a baby onesie.  
SKU: A2122131
  
$9.99 USD


What a cute little Transfer, right? We love the look of this on a 5” x 7” Double-Sided Box Frame (item S203105), or you could use the flower portion or sentiment portion separately on 5” x 5” Double-Sided Box Frames (item S203104). We should also point out how cute this looks on our House Cutouts (item S201102) as the top edge of the design matches well with the top edge of the cutout. The inspirational message with floral imagery is ready to plant creativity in your heart. And for good reason!
SKU: A2122132
  
$9.99 USD


This little Transfer and our Decorative Cutting Board (item S2111105) were literally made for each other (MFEO as we like to say). It also looks great on our 5” x 7” Double-Sided Box Frame (item S203105). This design is a pretty, simple, pleasant phrase. Great for Mother’s Day gifts, kitchen decor, house-warming gifts, to make and sell, or anything else you can dream up. It’ll be great to display all year long. 

SKU: A2122133
  
$9.99 USD

Small Transfer, bold design, so much truth. Pair this fun and sassy A-sized design with any of our patterns, flowers, images, or use it alone on an A-sized surface. The sentiment is both feminine and masculine, so you can easily customize it for anyone with the colors you choose. For a bright and dazzling effect, complete this in an ombre technique by adding two or more paste colors and then blending them together with your finger before removing the Transfer from your surface. 
SKU: B2122143
  
$14.99 USD


And just like that, bam! It’s summertime! Feel those summertime vibes seeping into your life and celebrate every bit of it with the Summer Vibes Transfer! There’s a lot going on in this design, which gives it both visual interest and a ton of versatility. Use any certain part or piece on separate projects from the words, to the icons, to the sassy sunglasses. You can get as meticulous as you’d like, adding colors and taping off different sections or chalking it all in one color for a quick one-and-done. Get fussy, or keep it simple. Let the chalk go to work for you as you celebrate every part of summer!
SKU: B2122144
  
$14.99 USD


Summer. Vacation. Road trips. Sunshine. Nature. WE LOVE IT ALLLLLL! This Transfer represents all the very best Summer has to offer. So eat some watermelon, catch some rays, and experience life! This cut-apart Transfer is great for workshops, sharing with friends, or to accent other projects. Each section of the overall design fits on our Chalkable Chips (black or white, 3” round, item S191110 or S193101).
SKU: B2122145
  
$14.99 USD


The world is one big crazy place. But we don’t really mind. We like things to be fun and playful (just like YOU!). So when life gets to be too much, keep going. You’re not crazy, your life is. Relax and accept it! We love the look of this design on a classic Couture Gallery Board Aiden White Frame (black, 9” x 12”, item S183127), or on items of apparel. It looks great in one or two colors, but don’t be afraid to go quirky and fun by adding lots of different hues. Every letter is separate, making it easy to add as many colors as you want!
SKU: B2122146
  
$14.99 USD


The oval shape of this design is a rare and special treat! We love the look of this on a tray (such as our Reclaimed Metal Tray, item S193118) or a found surface. For a different look, chalk just the words “family” or “love”. Include the laurel wreath or leave it off if desired. The overall design looks formal, but the tiny bit of quirkiness in the quote offers a bit of playfulness as well.
SKU: B2122147
  
$14.99 USD


This cut-apart Transfer is perfect for building a bucket full of blooms and blossoms. Use the flowers, greenery, and stems as desired to build a bucketful of flowers as big and robust as you’d like. Chalk the word “love” from this Transfer on the bucket, or choose sentiments from other Transfers in the Bloom & Blossom Chalk Stories™ Collection. Flowers can also be used as accent pieces on any project in your imagination.
SKU: B2127152
  $
14.99 USD


We love a simple design with a positive message. The clean, modern fonts used here with a generous helping of white space gives your eye space to work out the deeper meaning of the statement. Spacing was meaningfully designed to help remind us all to share our resources and to employ a generous mindset in all we do. This design is the perfect compliment to a gallery wall. For every A Longer Table Transfer sold, $2 USD goes to Watts of Love, a non-profit organization providing solar lighting and education to communities living in darkness.
SKU: C2122126
  
$24.99 USD


Create a meaningful display with a warm statement that reminds us that the true beauty of life is found in memories made with those we hold dear. The hand-drawn font and visually-stimulating greenery are designed in our glorious 12” x 18” (C-sized) Transfer, which gives a hearty impact to any space. For best results, we recommend the chalk-and-pull method when creating with this Transfer. 
SKU: C2122128
  
$24.99 USD


When it comes to DIY home décor, you simply cannot forget your kitchen! The Good Eats Transfer is a cut-apart design that’s great for creating a coordinated set of smaller projects for a gallery wall or tiered tray, or to create a larger display piece to bring a sense of welcome to your space. The large “good eats” sentiment fits on any of our 6” x 18” surfaces such as a Double-Sided Box Frame (item S203106). The smaller elements look great as accents or standing alone on 5” x 5” Double-Sided Box Frames (item S203104). We’d love to see you use these on apparel, aprons, jars for your pantry, house-warming gifts, and more. Get started!
SKU: D2122113
  
$29.99 USD


This is a pleasantly patriotic design that looks incredible on a round surface or one of our Square Pillow Covers (item S181101). We’ve included a few different song lyrics from classic America-inspired tunes. Use our Celebrate Palette Pack (item PS2122104) for a set of Chalkology® Paste colors that bring a sense of loyalty and allegiance to your design.
SKU: E2122103
  
$39.99 USD


Get ready for the boss of all Transfers! This is the design that keeps on giving! Put this design to work in a porch sign using the whole thing. When lining up the two halves top to bottom, the finished piece measures approximately 10” x 48”. Most sentiments fit individually on a 9” x 12” surface, which makes this like 15 individual Transfers in one; so put it all to work! Each little phrase can be used individually like putting “Kick Off Your Shoes” on a shoe basket in an entryway, or using “appreciate today” in an inspirational piece of your choosing. With all the visual interest offered in this vertical subway art style, this Transfer is absolutely one of our favorites! 


SKU: E2122104
  
$39.99 USD


This cut-apart Transfer really sparkles whether you’re using it with our Star Cutouts (item S2122106) or on any other surface. Mix and match the pieces for patriotic décor and more. These designs pair perfectly with our Celebrate Palette Pack (item PS2122104). Hey now, these are rock stars. Get your chalk on. Go play.

Welcome Sign // DIY Welcome sign // Come Chalk with Me!

This fun star tile pattern is repeatable on all four sides so you can cover a surface as large or small as you’d like. Add the “welcome” over the top of the tile or as an accent piece for home décor unlike any other. The tile pattern can be used for so many different things. What will you create?

While walking the aisles of Hobby Lobby, I came across some neat framed Screen frames on clearance, and I thought "I bet I could chalk on this!" So I bought a Square one and couldn't wait to chalk on it! 

Want to see how I made it? Follow along!


Supplies Needed: 
Found Surface: Square Screen Frame from Hobby Lobby
Washi Tape
Heat Gun (optional) 

Step 1
Get all your supplies together. Open the Bright White and Couture Teal Chalk Pastes and stir them well using a Stir Stick


Step 2
Fuzz the transfer using the Fuzzing Cloth. 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. 
Step 3
Cut the transfer apart. 
Step 4
Press the patterned part of the transfer onto the surface firmly. Since there was space on the outside of the transfer, place the wash tape on the outside of the transfer so the paste doesn't get in that space. Grab the Stir Stick and apply the Bright White Chalk Paste onto the transfer. Take the small squeegee and glide the Paste all over the transfer covering all mesh areas. 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 5
You can either let the pattern part air dry while you wash  the transfer or you can use a Heat Gun to speed up the process. 

Step 6
Once the pattern part is dry, lay your welcome part of the transfer in the middle of the patterned area. Take the small squeegee and glide the Couture Teal Paste all over the transfer covering mesh areas. 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 7
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. 


Now enjoy your creation!
