Introducing The Gentleman Crafter Mixed Media Kits!

Good Evening Everyone!

I have poked, prodded and teased about my mixed media kits...and they are finally here!  I had to see if I was just nuts or if people would really like them.  I took a few samples and a catalog with me to a class in New Braunfels and sold over 200 kits!  So I think they may be OK!  I hope!

Anyway, I have had so much fun creating these kits.  They range from Icon Toppers, Shrines, Santos, Furniture to Fairy Doors.  And I'm not done!  I have added what I can to my shop at the moment and will share tons more over the coming month.

These are SOOOOOOOO EASSSY to put together and inexpensive!   It takes about 5 to 10 minutes to assemble these...Just use some glue to assemble and then paint, collage and make them a piece of your AMAZING ART!  Did I say they were very affordable too?  Cut from 1/8 wood for durability and different mediums.

Here are a few pictures of the range you can find in my shop...

I would like to invite you over to my shop to see the full collection.  If you feel so inspired, grab a few and try them out!

You can find my shop by either clicking HERE!

Or by following the link below:

Please note, I am working on getting my inventory up, so it may take a few days to ship out your order.  A couple of other notes...I am working on shipping!  When you purchase any of the wooden mixed media kits, I will ONLY charge you what it costs me to ship the kit/s.  Once the kit is shipped I will go back in and credit you if your shipping amount was under the estimate charged.

I will be adding to all the wood kits in my shop, so please keep checking back!

Thank You So Much For Looking!

April Project: Dyan's Retro Stove Recipe Box Done!

Good Afternoon Everyone!

As promised last week, I have finally finished this month's second project.  I call it, Dyan's Retro Stove Recipe Box.

I totally love this fun paper collection from Authentique...When I saw it, I immediately thought of two things...A friend who loves retro things and a cool retro stove!  It was one of those projects that I couldn't wait to do!   AND...What a better time than now with Mother's Day coming up!  Even though I actually made it for my kitchen...Ha!  MOM, if you want one, let me know...

By pulling the oven handle, the retro stove opens up just like a regular oven door. Once open, you will find a recipe box that comes out with (4) dividers for your favorite collected and cherished recipe cards.  Also...the paper collection has some neato recipe cards you can cut out to use inside your recipe box...A really great piece to add a bit of retro fun to your kitchen and a simple project to create...

Here are some pictures...

April Project: New England Country Church

Good Morning Everyone!

We are juning around this morning trying to get out the door for the first class of the year at Scrapbook N' More in New Braunfels, Texas!  I am so excited to start traveling again and seeing my old friends and making new ones!

This morning I wanted to share one of this month's projects...The second project just didn't quite get done in time for this, but will post it as soon as possible...I hope you will like it I know I'm excited about it and can't wait for you to see that one too...Anyway, this month's Luminary House Project is a beautiful old New England Church...

The New England Country Church is an addition to the Luminary House Collection...We are building a VILLAGE...LOL Each month there will be a new house, castle, cottage or building for you to choose to add to your village collection.
One of my very favorite places to visit..New England. Driving though the old covered bridges, the mountains, rivers, and those amazing country inns. I'm always in awe over the lovely architecture of buildings and houses...not to mention the amazing old country churches; each one beautifully unique. My version of The New England Country Church shows off it's facade with a bounty of moulding features on the gabled roofs and cracked paint exterior and finished off with a steeple.
Please note:  The church will also come with (4) picket fence pieces to finish it off.
