Each challenge we have two prizes:

One random participant will win a
Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber stamp of their choice.
Any entry using a Wags 'n Whiskers image on their card will be entered into a drawing for a W'nW Digital stamp of their choice!!

Therefore, anyone who uses a Wags 'n Whiskers image will be entered into both prizes of a rubber stamp and a digital stamp!!

Elite Model Look II Isle of Wight Festival

Our scouts are going to be hitting all the festivals this summer for this year’s Elite Model Look competition and we kicked off the summer in style at the Isle of Wight festival. The Elite Model Look scouts worked hard and wow did we find some beautiful girls and boys for this year’s competition. After a day’s scouting, the Elite crew chilled out to a mix of Kings of Leon, Pulp, Kasabian, Hurts, Two Door Cinema Club and Plan B. Scouting AND amazing music…what a dreamy weekend.

Ikea Hack = Mod Podge Makeover

Pattern Girl - 3 Tiered Stand

This little stand is a bonus project from Plaid Craft TV. It was designed for our Mod Podge Makeover Episode. The stand began as a cookie stand from Ikea and we tricked it out with old book pages and some of my favorite scrapbook papers from Melody Ross.  Since the work is done on the under side of the glass, the stand can be used as a food stand or a stand for jewelry and trinkets.

Mod Podge ® Gloss, 8 oz.
IKEA - Tiered cookie stand – clear glass
Decorative scrapbook paper from Melody Ross GCD
Fiskars scissors
Old book pages

Let's Make This!
1. Disassemble the stand. Wash the glass plates and thoroughly dry.

2. Cut out the pattern ladies (or a different image) from scrapbook paper.

3. Apply Mod Podge to the top of the pattern ladies cutouts. Place onto the backside (underside) of the glass plates. Press any air bubbles with your fingers.

4. Cut old book pages into squares, apply a coat of Mod Podge to the papers and apply to the plate over the pattern ladies. Top coat with a layer of Mod Podge. Continue adding more book page squares until the entire plate is covered.

5. Do this for each plate. Once they are all dry, reassemble the stand.

My Trip to Denver for the taping of PBS's Sew It All TV!

This past spring, I sneaked away from my studio and office for a little sewing-play-time in Denver, CO.  I was invited to be a guest on the new PBS show Sew It All with host and magazine editor, Ellen March.  It was a blast to shoot and everyone was so nice.  I designed zipper flowers to teach.  They can be used for pins, headbands, jewelry, etc.  I think my episode is slated to air towards the end of the year. 

 I first met Ellen back in 2006 when she interviewed me for Sew News magazine.  It was one of my first full interviews before Creative Juice started.  You can see the interview here.

Ellen and me on the set of Sew It All.

Types of zippers.....LOVE THEM!
