My Life Scripture

Philippians 4:4-7 (ESV English Standard Version) Holy Bible
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let the reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus.

Stick Pins, Hat Pins, and Paper Napkin Technique!

I haven't posted in several months, but I have been busy!!  This is my latest project...making stick pins for handmade cards!  My sister wanted to wear hers, so I have made hat pins to wear, too!
Hat pins!

Stick pins!

To see how I make these stick pins, please visit this link...Quick and Easy Stick Pins
This is another link for stick pins used on handmade cards...Stick Pins on Cards
Update...I use Glossy Accents instead of Scotch Quick Dry!

Here is my latest card using a stick pin...
This card features another technique with which I have been working, the paper napkin project!

Paper Napkin Technique
I find beautiful paper napkins and peel away all the layers until I have the very top, soft, colorful layer.  Using a hot, dry iron and freezer paper, I cut to the size I want to use, iron the shiny side of the freezer paper to the back side of the napkin layer, and like magic...I have a firm piece of beautiful paper to use on projects!

This box has been sent to my paper crafting South African friend, Erna!  I sent her several napkins, sheets of freezer paper, handmade card, and one napkin that has been completed.  I hope she has as much fun using this technique as I have!

Have a wonderful day and thank you for visiting my blog!
