Everything Plus The Kitchen Sink

Hello Everyone!

Well I am about to start my last day of the American Sewing Guild National confrence in Houston Texas and it has been a fun few days, I have met an erray of wonderful talented people and everyone has been incredibly taken with my products. But I thought I would pop into my blog and share with you a new project I finished. As you all know I love thinking outside the box when it comes to working on new projects. My favorite thing to do is to wander around Hobby Lobby and Micheals in the diffrent areas and find new ways to use scrapbooking supplies. Well about a week ago I found myself standing in the kitchen section of my local dollar store and got to thinking what can I do with everyday cooking items....hmmmm......and then I saw it! Before me was a silver cookie sheet and eureaka the cookie sheet message board was born.
So I took my $1 cookie sheet and some wonderful alcohol ink (as you all know I love me some alcohol ink) and covered the front with ink. Then I used papers from my stash and a bit of ephemera from Gecko Galz and the board was born. I was so pleased with the outcome that I have decided to include this as part of the Huge Christmas Class extravaganza at Stamp Antonio Arts in November....oh and if I have not told you about this little venture, every year we do a big christmas workshop day at Stamp Antonio Arts in San Antonio and this year each hour for 7 hours students will get to make an exciting little project tht they can give as gifts ....or keep. And this will be one of the projects we will be doing.
Now fear not if you cannot make this for what we plan to do is on the Gecko Galz Website starting in September we will be doing our 12 gifts of Christmas where we will each week for 12 weeks be doing a FREE project idea for you to make and give or keep so this one will be done in November. But if you can make it please come it is alot of fun and everyone gets a Christmas gift just for coming and cool doorprizes and of course all the products to make the items.
Also I wanted to give a shout out to an amazing online store called Nona Designs Art Supplies...they are a Altered Artist dream store and have the alcohol inks in individual bottles as well as Tim Holtz and Ranger products super cheap...they are our shop of the month and I invite everyone to go check the out at the link below! I hope you all enjoy my littl project and as always please feel free to leave a comment!
Happy Crafting

  1. This is wonderful Leanne and what a great idea. When I go to my local charity shops I always look out for wooden things to alter, I never look at metal objects, but I will now.

  3. Hi! I know this is kinda off topic
    however , I'd figured I'd ask. Would you be interested in
    trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or
    vice-versa? My website addresses a lot of the
    same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from
    each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to
    send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!
