My daughter, Londyn, is on summer break from school. She’s 5 and going into 1st grade. She woke up the first day off of school and asked if she can help me work. Ummmm yes! YES, you sure can! I totally hired a summer helper and will be paying her with LOL dolls. Meet my newest employee… LONDYN!
I’m loving this Stay Awhile Transfer from Chalk Couture. It’s totally perfect for every entry way, isn’t it?! I put it onto a 24×36 Chalk Couture Panel and then popped it into a 24×36 frame that I had. Since the frame is porcelain magnetic, I used a heavy duty hook, placed it right onto the chalkboard and then topped it off with a cotton wreath. Pretty cute, right?
Did you know that underneath a canvas is a gorgeous wood frame, that is ready to be stained or painted and turned into a beautiful piece? There is! Let me show you how easy it is to take off the canvas, reattach and then chalk it up with some Chalk Couture Transfers and Chalkology Paste.
Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day? I’m having a blast making all kinds of Valentine’s Day decor this year using all the super cute Chalk Couture Valentine’s Chalk Transfers. This Sugar Cookies Transfer could absolutely be used year round but with a little red and/or pink Chalkology Paste, it screams Valentine’s day. Am I right?
I couldn’t wait to chalk this one up. I even did a little layering on the Sugar Cookies letters, using our Patterns Chalk Transfer. Oh yes.. yes, I did LAYER the transfers. Did you know you could do that? I’ll share the video for you below so you can see how you do the layering. It’s a fun added touch.
Seriously, it’s as easy as …. PLACE. PASTE. PEEL!!!
If you haven’t tried Chalk Couture yet, head on over to MY STORE and get yourself some!!! You will love it!
Want to add a unique look to your chalk projects?! If so, you’ve got to give this ombre technique a try. It’s super simple to do and really adds a lot. Check out this cake that I used the ombre technique on in the video below. It’s from the You’re the Sweetest Chalk Transfer from Chalk Couture.
All you need is your Chalk Transfer, surface, at least 2 chalkology paste colors and your finger.
Isn’t that cool?! This project was super fun. I love how you can chalk on the chalkboard backing of this Shadow Box, as well as the glass on the top.
Have you seen the cute little vintage trucks everywhere this holiday season? I sure have. So on trend! I’m loving them.
I was super excited when Chalk Couture released their Vintage Truck Chalk Transfer with tons of pieces to coordinate with it to make it a year round transfer. In this video below I’m going to share how I used the cute Christmas Tree to place in the bed of the truck. In addition to the tree, it came with pumpkins, an anchor, boxes, watermelons and more with sentiments to coordinate.
I meant to share this with you all sooner but time got away from me. I had so much fun putting together our Thanksgiving Fall Christmas Tree this year and even chalked up some decorations like this Autumn Is In The Air pumpkin chalkboard. Isn’t it cute?!
Look how simple it was to make using the Autumn Is In The Air Chalk Transfer from Chalk Couture and some Chalkology Paste…
“Always be yourself, unless you can be a Mermaid, then always be a Mermaid!”
Who else loves mermaids? Isn’t this Always Be A Mermaid Chalk Couture Transfer Ahhhhhmazing?! Oh Em Gee, it’s one of my all time favs. It pairs perfectly with the Under The Sea Chalk Transfer. There is another super cute Mermaid transfer that we have called Dream Big Little Mermaid. It’s super cute too! I thought the 19.5″ round chalkboard from Chalk Couture was perfect for this design, however you could get away with the 18″ x 24″ size chalkboards for this and it would be so gorgeous. We have several high quality, porcelain, magnetic boards to choose from.
Here is the video to see the process in action… it was so much fun to create.
Did you see how glittery the mermaid is? Ahhh … it looks so gorgeous in person. The sparkles on the mermaid were the perfect touch. You should try it. Simply sprinkle on the glitter while your Chalkology Paste is wet, dump off the excess, then blow dry it and the last step is to wipe away the excess. Your project isn’t going to budge until you’re ready to remove it and spray/wipe it with water. However, if you want to seal your project, you totally can. You simple use a seal spray like Krylon Matte Spray Sealer and spray over the entire design.
My 4 year old daughter, Londyn, wanted to play with Chalk Couture like mommy. She even wanted to make her own video. Start them young, right? I can’t even with her little morning voice. She’s too much!!!
Isn’t it so great that this can be a craft you can do with kids too? They love it! She did awesome, didn’t she?
