New iCraft Deco Foils with Therm O Web

iCraft-Foils Color-Shot

Hello, hello friends! Today I am super excited to share a brand new product from Therm O Web with you. Although best known for their line up of adhesives, sewing, and quilting supplies, Therm O Web also does offer a range of unique crafting items, with a very fun new product releasing just in time for CHA this year…. iCraft Deco Foils! These Deco Foils come in 17 beautiful colors and prints, and can be used on paper, wood, fabrics and more. Apply the new foils with our Deco glue, or try die cutting, punching, or hand cutting with our iron-on transfer sheets, or add dimension with our new white adhesive foam sheets. There are so many different ways to use the new foils, and I think you all are going to love them.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb DecoFoil WishGiftBoxI had so much fun playing with the new Deco Foils and creating projects for the Therm O Web CHA booth, and today I am happy to share the first of them here with you. This pretty gift box uses the silver star Deco Foil, applied with the liquid Deco Glue. The sparkle and shine is just unbelievable! And if you look very closely, you can see the tiny iridescent stars embedded in the foil.

Isn’t that amazing? And I love the loose, organic flow I got from using the foil with the liquid glue and a wide bristle paintbrush. I simply squirted a bit of the glue at the bottom of a white shipping tag, and brushed it upwards with a 1″ flat brush. I repeated the process on plain white cardstock for the bow. After allowing the glue to dry completely, you apply the foil… and the fun thing is, the foil contours to every brush marks.

And so pretty, too, right? Just imagine a whole rainbow of amazing shimmery foil color available at your fingertips. I think I could slap this stuff on everything!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful day.

I AM Loving Life with Simple Stories

Yesterday I had the happy pleasure of seeing my first design team projects go up on the Simple Stories blog…. a couple of cards I made for CHA2015 using the adorable new I AM collection. So excited to now share the first of them here with all of you!

CHA may officially be over for the year, but if you were watching along via Facebook or Instagram these last few days, you may have noticed a lot of photos being posted of the Simple Stories booth with the I AM marketing slogan. The response has been tremendous, and I couldn’t be happier! It truly is a beautiful line, with a beautiful message. If you haven’t had a chance to see the campaign or the I AM collection yet, you can find the full reveal here.

Gold has been such an on-trend color this past year, and I am so excited to see that trend continue. For my first card, I combined the shiny elegance of gold accents with the softer look of pastel papers and fabric for an eye catching combo that’s full of visual texture.

As a card-maker, I am always smitten with the smaller prints of the 6×6 paper pads, which I used to create my background here. A 3×4 SN@P Card makes a perfect frame for the focal point and sentiment… Chipboard, Bits & Pieces die cuts, and a yummy gold glittered Enamel Dot, all tied up with some pretty metallic trim.

Looking ahead to Friday….
Have you guys seen? Emma, over at My Creative Time, is celebrating her 4-year anniversary this week with a fabulous new stamp and die release and lots of project inspiration and giveaways, including a grand prize you won’t want to miss. I am super excited to be joining in the celebration on Friday, as guest designer for the 39th edition Blog Hop. Hope to see you all then… but in the mean time, you can check out all the fun on the My Creative Time blog.


Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful day!
