Family Love Galvanized Hanger by designer Patty Folchert

Have you had a chance to play with any Mix the Media surfaces yet? I just love them and wanted to share a project made with the small galvanized surface today. This little hanger just needed a new Hampton Art chevron stamp, some paper, ink and stitching to transform it into a playful home d├ęcor piece.
Family Love Galvanized Hanger by Patty Folchert

First I started with some Yellow Salt paper as a backer mat, layered on some brand new Sew Sweet Sunshine Soup rainbow chevron paper called:  Sew Creative. Then I stitched them together for texture and to add to the “sew sweet” theme. Then using red sticky strip tape attached it to my surface. Then I added my family photo with adhesive centered as shown.  Then I grabbed the fun new mini placemat cut-out shapes from Sew Sweet Sunshine collection and add the hoop and heart . As backers for them I stamped in rainbow colors the New Hampton art chevron background stamp and adhered to the back of the cut-outs. Then I added a sheer white ribbon behind the heart and a wood star button on top of the heart. Last I added a mini rub-on sentiment of “LOVE” in cross-stitch design with a wire word “family”.


Can’t wait to hang it up in my house, but this would make a great gift project too…
Family Rocks,
Patty Folchert

Happy Birthday Pillow Box by designer Patty Folchert

Occasionally I want to give someone special a gift card but also want to add just a little something extra, like candy or jewelry. These kraft pillow boxes by Jillibean Soup are the perfect solution, and add some new Hampton Art clear stamps and you can personalize for any occasion.


This is so quick and easy. Grab your kraft pillow box and stamp an image in your chosen color, I used pink for the balloons. Next stamp the sentiment onto white cardstock; I used navy ink and fussy cut as shown. Last I layered the sentiment with 3D foam dots onto some new Jillibean Soup Sew Sweet Sunshine Soup paper and cut in triangle shape as shown.


Then just slide in your giftcard and any little goodies like candy or a small gift and seal by tying a ribbon around it and finish with a bow. Presto!; a super easy and quick gift that you can customize for any occasion.
Party On,
Patty Folchert
