My take on May's Club Couture - Sweet Lemon Grove // Come chalk with me!

I absolutely loved this months Club Couture transfer! It's just perfect for spring and summer time! With a few different added in options, you could make this transfer in so many ways! 

You could place it in the kitchen and make a Lemon Drop! Sounds yummy! 


Ready to see how I made it? 

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. I didn't use the trays since I have the jars of each chalk paste. 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: I used the main part of the transfer so I cut off the extra 2 pieces off. 

Step 3: 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 4: Lay your transfer down onto your surface. Make sure its completely flat. 

Step 5: Make a game plan of where you want your paste colors to go. I went by the instructions and used the Storm Paste for the letters, the Lemon in Bumblebee Paste and the leaves and accent pieces in Meadow PasteI used the Small Squeegees for each paste color. Have your pastes close to you for easy use. 

Step 6: I started from the top and worked my way down. Once I chalked everything from the GROVE up, I used the paste and pull method. Thats when you lift up the portion of the transfer, so the paste doesn't dry out and mess up when you wait till the end to lift up the transfer. I laid the transfer back down carefully. I also pasted a little thick to give myself a little extra time. Then removed the extra paste right before I used the paste and pull method. 

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!

Here's a video on how I made it:

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

A Lemon Drop sounds perfect to me!

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!

Check out my Valentines Day 3 Tiered Tray // Come chalk with me!

 This year I had a great time creating my Valentines Day 3 Tiered Tray. I made a few more items with Chalk Couture to add from last year. I was so excited that I was able to find quite a few Valentines Rae Dunn Mugs. And after a few trips to Hobby Lobby and Target I knew I was set for all my Valentines Day Decor around the house. That was until I remember to look in the garage for my Valentines Day decor from the previous years. That was when I found 8 MORE Rae Dunn Mugs! Um.... so 14 mugs total! Don't tell my husband! I even have a double! Whoops! But I always say you can never have enough Rae Dunn... and Chalk Couture!

I got each of the kids a bag that I filled with candy and a heart box of Chocolates. Plus some yummy soft sugar cookies! I got my husband a bottle of wine.  

Tier 1 

I start with a Wink Wink Rae Dunn Mug. Inside the Mugs, I placed a chalked shelf sitter with a XOXO mini transfer from the Sprinkled with Love Transfer. I also put 2 glitter hearts from Hobby Lobby. I bought a small white framed chalk board and added the XOXO and hearts from the Hugs & Kisses Transfer. I then placed that inside a red candle holder. To top it off, I used a red & White Bead Garland with a wooden heart.  

Tier 2 

I start with a Red XOXO Rae Dunn Mug on the left. Inside the Mug, I placed some more glitter hearts along with a heart cookie cutter. Then I added Couple Goals Rae Dunn Mug to the right. In front of the mugs is a wooden faux wooden roller pin that says "Made with Love" from Hobby Lobby. Hanging off that roller pin is a small wooden sign that says "You are Loved" from Hobby Lobby.  

Tier 3

The bottom tier starts with a Heart Rae Dunn Mug to the left. Inside the mug is 2 spatulas - 1 white with XOXO's from Target and a Red with XOXO from Rae Dunn. Also inside the heart Mug is a glitter heart. In the Middle is a small pink bowl from Ikea. Inside the pink bowl is a shelf sitter with a chalk I "heart" You mini transfer from the  Sprinkled with Love Transfer. On the right is the light pink Soul Mate Rae Dunn Mug with a few glitter hearts. I filled the bottom with Hersheys kisses. 


On the right of the 3 Tiered Tray, I made a Valentines Tablet Holder with the Love Knows No Boundaries Transfer. I used 4 different pinks and I did the Ombre' effect to make the colors blend together! 

To the left of the 3 Tiered Tray is a Pink sign that I painted with Pink paint and then used Black Velvet Chalk Paste with Love Brings Us Home Transfer that is retired.

 In front of that is a box of yummy cookies from Target with a Shelf Sitter on top that I used the February 14th mini transfer from the Sprinkled with Love Transfer. This transfer is currently in the Last Change Section so once its gone, its gone for good! I really love this transfer! 

Do you decorate Valentines Day? 
I really enjoyed creating this years Valentines Day 3 Tiered Tray! I hope you love it as much as I do!
