CHA PROJECTS: Once Upon A Springtime Fairy Lantern and Ranger Designer Challenge.

Good Morning Everyone!

By the time this posts, we will be inside the convention center and the doors to CHA have just opened.  So as agreed with the rules, I can now show you some of the projects....

Graphic 45 Once Upon A Springtime Fairy Lantern










I love the fun fantasy feeling I get from this lantern.  Made completely of chipboard and acyclic panels.  I was so excited to get to use the new Graphic 45 Claw Feet!  In the top there is a little light that shines down on the fairies talking to the frog.  A great decorative piece that I will be teaching how to make at Craft Crossing in Gonzales, Texas on the 31st.  AND YES...I begged and pleaded and We Will have the Collectors Edition Once Upon A Springtime paper pack and new FABULOUS Claw Feet to work with!  YAHOOOOOOOO!  So sign up now with Pam at Craft Crossing!

Now for a totally different look and feel...I was honored to be apart of the Ranger Designer Challenge.  This year, we had the amazing pleasure to work with Dina Wakley's Range of products!  FABULOUS CREAMY PAINT, AWESOME STAMPS AND STENCILS...Just plain AMAZING~!  Ranger said, use her products but in your style...And let's see my style is....Chipboard and anything dimensional!  Sorry, I forgot to take good pictures of this as we were trying to make the deadline...But anyway...here's what I came up with...

Ranger Designer Challenge- Dina Wakley Inspired Canvas




Well, that's a couple.  Hope you like them..Please check back tomorrow for a few more projects.  I will be posting pictures from Facebook today of the happenings on the CHA floor.  So stay tuned to that and my blog for some CHA goodness!

Have an awesome day!

  3. That lantern is beyond spectacular!!! Won't you come to NC to teach it? Purty please! Or at least put the tutorial on your etsy. The canvas you made is gorgeous too... wasn't expecting to see it light up and was fun to see the 'next' photo as I scrolled down. Y'all have a great time at the show!

  9. Jim, I love the fairy lantern and I may have enough papers in my stash to make it before you come home -- if I could make up the dimensions! I might be afraid to because the vignette inside is so perfect!
    And your canvas -- you are such a devil! I truly cannot see those "fairy lights" in the photo when they are not lit -- you need to do something like this for a Christmas project -- at least I do! I'm going to start thinking NOW for Christmas gifts! I love the heart, don't get me wrong - although that particular style doesn't go in my bedroom -- if you get my drift -- but something for the holidays might work -- thinking cap on and ignited!

  11. That lantern is amazing! That is probably my all time favorite collection and the fairy & the frog my fave image. Can't tell you how much I love this! Sure wish I was near there to take that class. Sigh.
