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!

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 d├ęcor 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!
