January Club Couture - Love - Styled by me! // Come chalk with me!

 I love all the colors of Valentines Day, so I was super excited to create this months Club Couture! I have so many Chalk Pastes in Reds and pinks, it was really hard to chose. After pulling all the reds and picks out and comparing them with each other, I picked Bright White, Mauvelous and Raspberry Sorbet

Come along and see how I styled this months Club Couture - Love! 




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



Step 4: I wanted an Ombre feel for the words LOVE and DIRECTION. I put the Chalk Paste Mauvelous on the top half of the word and  Raspberry Sorbet on the bottom half. I use my finger and slightly blend them together in the middle section. This makes a pretty ombre effect. 


Step 5: For the rest of the words, I used Bright White. Just to make sure the paste didn't try in the screen, I used the paste and pull method. Since I was doing the word DIRECTION in ombre too, thats where I decided to stop to the paste and pull. 


Step 6: For the word DIRECTION, I put the Chalk Paste Mauvelous on the top half of the word and  Raspberry Sorbet on the bottom half. I use my finger and slightly blend them together in the middle section. 

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!

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

What are you making for your Valentine?

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

Love—January 2022 Club Couture // Come chalk with me!

 Set your sights on love and align your goals with your loved ones. Our lovey-dovey Love Chalk Transfer® design is the perfect addition to your Valentine’s Day home décor. Your shipment this month also includes the following Chalkology® Paste Singles: Peony, Raspberry Sorbet, and Shimmer Silver. 

Enjoy the reminder to gaze adoringly into your loved one’s eyes and celebrate your common goals with this month’s Club Couture™ Transfer.

Ready to start this months creation? Follow along! 

Supplies Included

-Club Couture Transfer design: Love—January Club -Couture Chalkology® Paste Singles: Peony, Raspberry Sorbet, Shimmer Silver

Additional Supplies Needed

Surface: Pallet Sign (9" × 12")
Tools: Color Trays, Fuzzing Cloth, Mini Squeegee


Color and Placement Suggestions

Peony: “Antoine de Saint-Exupéry”, triple heart details, double circle details, banner element

Raspberry Sorbet: “love”, “each other”, “same direction”, individual hearts

Shimmer Silver: “is not just looking at”, “it’s looking in the”, arrow element, dots

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 Love 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. Starting from the top, use your Mini Squeegee to apply color over your Transfer (see “Color and Placement Suggestions”). Once the screen portions of the design are completely covered, use your tool to remove excess paste as evenly as possible; excess paste can be scraped back into the tray. The more excess paste you remove, the better the result will be.

6. 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.

7. 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.

8. 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).

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

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

11. Get ready for Valentine's Day and show off your lovely creation!

What is Chalk Couture? Come see what the fuss is all about and see why I love it soooo much!

 



You have heard me talk about it and you have seen my projects- so what is Chalk Couture?

Chalk Couture is a craft product that is both can be temporary and permanent. There is 2 types of product that is used.  There is chalk paste which is a normally a temporary if put on the proper surface. And then there is Ink which is permanent after being heat set. The best part is the transfers!!! There are so many transfers that fit for every occasion possible. With all theses items, your projects are endless. 

As a busy working mom, I don't have time to spend hours on creating cute chalk boards and buying a ton of different seasonal decorations to be used one. As a crafter, I love to make my own holiday decorations and have made so many decorations with Chalk Couture items. You wanna make a pillow for Christmas and than use that same design on a chalk board- you can do that! You want to make tea towels for a group of people- you can do that! 

Here is a breakdown of what Chalk Couture has to offer: 

Transfersthese are reusable silk screen stencils in a variety of sizes from 5" x 7" all the way to 18" x 24" with designs and patterns for just about every occasion. These transfers can used 8-12 times so you really get your money's worth! Some transfers come with one designs, while other transfers can be cut apart. There is even transfers that cut into 12 small transfers that fit perfect on chalkable chips - 3" circles are a chips that are ideal mini project. 


Chalk Paste- Which is known as Chalkology™ Paste - comes in 30 colors, 3 shimmer and 5 en vogue (limited) color and in 3 fl oz containers - which also can be combined to create an unlimited amount of colors! These are think pastes the become fully dry in about 5-10 minutes or faster with a heat gun. They are easy to use. They glide on easy to the transfer and what ever is not used can go back into the paste pot. You will be able to utilize every bit - even if they dry out a bit- add water and stir and they come back to life. No waste here!Can also be applied to other nonporous surfaces such as mirrors, windows, glass, painted walls, and painted furniture. Hard, matte finish when dry. Used chalk but want to make it permanent?!?- spray with a clear aerosol sealer. Or change it up each season ( as long as its not on a porous surface) and spray with water and wipe clean. Ready to use for your next decoration. 
                                     
Ink - Which is known as Chalkology™ Ink - Come in 23 different colors which include shimmer colors and in 3 fl oz containers.  Who doesn't love a little shimmer! Chalkology™ Ink is specially formulated for use with Chalk Transfers™ and Chalk Couture™ surfaces. Ink offers permanent color when heat set and is ideal for fabric, apparel, and glass. Want to make shirts for the kids- than this is your go to! 
Accessories- Tools are what make the job easy and create an amazing piece or work. So making sure you have the right tools is the key. You need to use paste in a small area - there is a tool for that! You want to use one color for the whole project - there is a tool for that too! Need to wax a project before - yep! You guessed it! There is a tool for that as well! And they are all so easy to clean up too! 
Surfaces- Last but definitely not least- these are a big one! I have used Chalk Couture surfaces and I have you non Chalk Couture surfaces. It really just depend on your project. But Chalk Couture has amazing surfaces to use. Did you want a framed surface or a pillow case? Or maybe a banner will work best for your project. Whatever it is, Chalk Couture most likely has. And if not- Hobby Lobby does! 

Whatever you reasons, do it with me! As a long time crafter, this has to be one of the easiest crafts around. The best part is that anyone can do it- you don't need to be crafty to do great at this. 

Have questions or want to try it out with me? Let me know! I will be having chalk parties, make and takes and Ladies nights soon!

December Club Couture - Good Things // Come Chalk with Me!


The December 2021 Club Couture™ Transfer is a great way to kick off your new year, sending vibes for good things to happen in 2022. For new chalkers and those who prefer a more simple project, this Chalk Transfer® design looks amazing chalked all in one color. For meticulous crafters and those who like to take things above and beyond, it’s a great chance to show off detail work, adding different hues to the design.

We’re showing off a bit here with a busier design; make it pop with a surface sized to allow a bit of empty space in the border around it. We’ve chosen to add our old staple Bright White (item P181121). The subscription includes Chalkology® Paste Singles in Couture Teal, Eucalyptus, and Peachy Keen, which can be used here or saved for future projects.

No matter how you chalk it, good things are going to happen!

Supplies Included

Club Couture Transfer: Good Things—December Club Couture Chalkology® Paste Singles: Couture Teal, Eucalyptus, Peachy Keen
Additional Supplies Needed

Surface: Sylvie White Frame (9" × 12") Chalkology® Paste: Bright White

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

Color and Placement Suggestions

Bright White (additional paste): swirls, “good,” “things,” “happen” Eucalyptus: greenery, “are going to”
Peachy Keen: accent flowers, banner dashes



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 Good Things 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 Mini Squeegee, Multi-Tool, and Detail Tool to apply color over your Transfer (see “Color and Placement Suggestions”). Select your tool based on whichever size best fits the various Transfer elements. 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 fast 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. Show off your latest DIY project to friends and family. And remember, good things are going to happen!
