Day 4 with Kathy Jones - Sprinkled with Love

First I would like to answer a few questions from yesterday's post. Kathy lives in Australia and in Australia hardware stores carry Kaiser Kraft Products. Many of you thought this would be a great idea -since all our Hubby's wouldn't mind a trip to the hardware store right? Also in Aussie lingo a basket is called a hamper.

You can begin shopping for the November Release tomorrow -- be sure to stop in tomorrow because we have a big announcement you won't want to miss!!

Do you have a little princess on your Christmas List?? Kathy has designed the sweetest Fairy ensemble for her daughter today, it would be such a fun gift for any little girl on your list.

Hello everyone and welcome to Day 4 of my Guest Blogging week! Today’s project is a fun one for the little girl in your life!!


My daughter is 2yrs old and loves pink, yellow and all things fairy related!! I had this paper mache wand just begging to be decorated so I coated it with yellow paint and waited for it to dry. I stamped the sentiment using the Celebrations Demi Phrases and the Font set from the 2” Font and Center Set. The beautiful heart image is from the Favorite Occasions Borders and Centers Set. I stamped it all in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured the heart in markers and a blender pen. It was cut out using the Large Circle Spellbinders and matted with pink cut using the Small Circle Spellbinders. I glued it to the wand, added some pink Kaisercraft Rhinestones to each point and some pink ribbons to the handle of the wand.

Because all girls like to put their treasures in boxes I made a matching 2-5-7-10 box (found at SCS - http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/2_5_7_10_box/ ) using yellow card for the base and some My Mind’s Eye Abbey Road paper to decorate the front. Once again I use the 2” Font and Center Set to make the sentiment in the Favorite Occasions Borders and Centers Set for the heart and coloured it to match. My daughter loves a show called ‘The Fairies’ where everything is ‘Fanfairytastic’ so it seemed the perfect sentiment to add!!

Stamps – Celebrations Demi Phrases, 2” Font and Center Set, Favorite Occasions Borders and Centers.
Paper – Yellow, White, My Mind’s Eye Abbey Road DP
Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories – Paper Mache Wand, Large, Large Scallop and Small Circle Nestabilities, Pink Kaisercraft Rhinestones, Markers, Blender Pen, Scor Pal, Grosgrain Ribbon, 1/8 circle punch, double sided tape, Fiskars Border Punch.

I can’t believe the week is almost over and I hope you stop by tomorrow for one last project for the week!

Hugs
Kathy J
