September Club Couture - Hello Autumn // Come chalk with me!

We love autumn! September’s Club Couture™ Transfer features foliage and trendy lettering that make us want to jump into a pile of crunchy fall leaves. Your Club Couture™ shipment also includes: Currant Jam, Guava, and Shimmer Harvest paste singles. We paired this month’s Transfer with our Couture Gallery™ Aiden Style White Frame (Black, 9” x 12”, item S183127) to make the classic autumn colors pop! 

Supplies Included:

-Club Couture Transfer: Hello Autumn 
-Chalkology® Paste Singles: Currant Jam, Guava, and Shimmer Harvest

Supplies Needed:

-Surface: Couture Gallery Aiden Style White Frame (Black, 9" × 12")

-ToolsMini Squeegees, Color TraysFuzzing ClothMulti-ToolQuick Dry Tool, Board Eraser

- Chalk Paste: Bright White 


Color and Placement Suggestions

-Bright White: “Hello autumn” sentiment 
-Currant Jam: Leaves
-Guava: Flowers
-Shimmer Harvest: Branches and 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 it onto a Fuzzing Cloth and carefully pulling it upward. This makes the Transfer easier to remove from the surface after you’ve applied the paste.

3. Center the 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. Use a small amount of paste to smooth over the Transfer, beginning at the top (see “Color and Placement Suggestions”, and keep in mind step 7). To chalk the fine details, use a Multi-Tool.

6. As you work 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.

7. For best results, use the chalk-and-pull method: Chalk the top half of the design and peel back only that portion of the Transfer to let the paste dry on the surface before continuing (using a Quick Dry Tool is a great option). This allows you to work in smaller sections without having the paste dry in the screen, making the Transfer difficult to remove. To prevent any stretching in the Transfer, peel from the center or from both corners, instead of peeling diagonally.

8. Once the top half of the design is dry, ensure the bottom half of the Transfer is still secure on the surface and repeat steps 5 and 6 for the rest of the design.

9. 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.

11. Reapply the Transfer Backer Sheet and store flat.

12. Relish your creation!

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!
