Custom Apron with Ann Butler Designs

Hello Friends! today I am stopping by to share this fun custom apron with Ann Butler Designs.

Custom Apron with Ann Butler Designs

I guess I love making things for my daughter as I have quite a few projects customized for her and she loves making things for me because I have more artwork and hearts than I know what to do lol.......though I love her little surprises for today I got a heart card in the mail from her.

Products Used:

This was such a quick project to put together. First I stamped the name using Crafter's ink blueberry and Ann Butler's 2" ABC stamp set. The ink pads are so juicy and work so well with fabric that I absolutely enjoyed working. I am sure you know how frustrating it can get when the products you use don't work like they should.

Then I stamped with Ann Butler's faux quilt stamps and i cannot tell you how much I love these innovative stamps they are so much fun to work with.

Lastly I stamped the Checks 1 stamp and blinged it up using stickles.

Calender with Ann Butler Designs and Deflecto Frame

Hello Crafty Friends! Today I want to welcome you to a fun blog hop using Ann Butler Design products and Deflecto frame. For the hop I made this fun Calendar.

Products Used:
Ann Butler Crafter’s Ink by Clearsnap: Ocean Breeze and Berry
Ann Butler 2″Faux Quilt Stamps by Unity Stamps 
Ann Butler's 1" EZ De's by Kellycraft
Craft Frame 8 X 10 by Deflecto
Cardstock, metal rings, 3 X4 calendar sheets for 2015, transparency, black sharpie

1. Stamp the cardstock using Ann Butler's crafter's ink and stamps to create beautiful background and attach the printed calendar sheets.
2. Cut your cardstock to insert into the frame
3. Stamp your design on the cardstock. This was really easy using Ann Butler Design's faux quilt stamps. These stamps just have endless possibilities......Loveeeeeee them.
4. Now I cut a sheet of transparency to fit into the frame and handwrote a quote. I love to read quotes and so I thought this would be the best way to add an inspirational quote everyday or month to inspire me when I look at the calendar.
5. Drilled two holes for the metal rings so I can hang the calendar sheets.

I hope you enjoyed this project and please don't forget to leave me a comment. Now are you ready to be blown away ..............stop by my fellow crafter's blog to be amazed with their creativity.
