LOVING our Fridays!!! What a treat to have our girl, Jessica of LOVE COLORFUL all up in hurr on the Sis Boom blog! Take it away, Jessica! Pssssst… Jessica’s beautiful wedding was just featured in Mingle Magazine– you HAVE to check it out. WOWZA!
Hey there! Ok, I know you’ve seen a bunch of trees up on here, but hey, they are just so darn easy and fun to make I can’t help myself! Using Sis Boom Clip Art we’ve already made a Sequin Flower Tree and a Striped Heart Tree, but this week we’re going with a Glitter Scallop Tree!
As you probably have guessed by now, we’re using the Glitter Textures Clip Art (yup! the same ones we used for the Happy Home Banner, except this time we’re using the smaller, original sizes!)
Since we’ve been through this quite a few times, I think we can get by with just a few pictures – sound good? Simply print your clip art on 8 1/2″ x 11″ paper (either plain white paper & glue or you can use sticker backed sheets to help the squares stick to each other)
All you’ll really need is a tiny bit of patience!
and I’ll get back to you!!!!!!
PPSSSSSTTTT, don’t tell anyone but get your watercolors out when you are done!!
From 12/22 – 12/24, Craftsy is running its Christmas SALE!

Oh right it’s Friday and we have a winner!!!! Yes a winner to Carla’s Book Sewn Hats!!! Charlene Miller send us your info!!!! That’s going to be one Happy Lady. Hey Ladies and Gents I’m working on some fun Halloween favors and stuff so the next post will be all about that. So I need to give a quick shout out for Girls World because the Holidays are coming and you definitely want to have it on your wish list. There are a couple of craft projects in Girls World that I just love. The first is the headpiece that has soooo many different applications, think black roses and spider webs for Halloween and get your spooky on!!!! The second is the Badge of Honor can say anything you would like it to say..How about Trick or Treat and use black glitter..I tell you endless possibilities. Oh and I just thought of a third, yup, A Happy Halloween Banner like the one in Girls World done with black felt and white letters?? Are you with me??? Please show us what you create, we get the biggest kick out of your creations!!
Recoloring, rethinking, but this one was spot on!! A heart for all of you because that’s what I’m feeling!! It’s cold here and I am hunkered down sewing sequins and ensuring that Happy Land is everything you guys love in this world. I am pumped for this incredible New Year. Stop by often, remember to play and always stay true to you!
You Mean the World to me!!!
A bit of sequin sparkle
Say I Love You with a sweet Forget Me Not Bouquet. Paired with silky seam binding and velvet on a floral heart, this one’s packed with love and tenderness.
Dangle a precious collection like this from a powder room mirror, a doorknob… how about as sweet little cake toppers?! Or cupcake toppers?! (you know you just got excited!!!!)
How? When you’re gluing your heart backing on, sneak a super thin piece of wire, or even a toothpick between the layers, apply your glue, and press together! Totally, cute, eh?
To make a dangling heart, place a piece of seambinding ribbon between two hearts, glue them together & add your posy with a thin piece of velvet. voila!!!
The possibilities are limitless… these little Valentine traditions will look awesome anywhere that calls for a little touch of love. Sigh. So sweet!
Well, here’s the deal… we had every intention of waiting until the 1st of February do kick of the Sis Boom Month of L-O-V-E… but we just couldn’t do it! We’re BURSTING at the seams with LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!! Love for you, Love for our families, Love for our friends… basically love is flying in every direction and we can no longer contain it!
Here is a colorful, happy, trinket that is just FULL of love! It’s being posted today, before the start of February, to show just how serious we are about the love thang.
And another version…
And some more.. it’s no coincidence that a Barbara Strawser painting is peeking from behind … we’re SO full of LOVE for Barbara!! (is all this Love talk making you sick already?! Well, Get ready for a month full of it )
You all sent in such beautiful comments during January, our month of renewal and loving oneself… will you please grace us with your beautiful comments on love?! Pretty please?! Your comments make us SO happy!
We have officially proclaimed January as the month of renewal and the month to love yourself!
Try new things often and give yourself whatever it is you need to feel peace each and every day. Here is a little craft for you… It will constantly remind you how important it is to pay attention to yourself!
In addition to making this sweet banner for yourself, try to do a little bit of the following… we will too
- Create a loving mantra that you can repeat in the mirror
- Journal your thoughts before the demands of the day crowd in
- Create an enchanting place to nurture yourself
- Do one thing you’re afraid to do
Print out these 3 pages (downloadable PDFs – just click on ‘em to download).. cut them out and punch two holes along the top… string a sweet ribbon through them all… and viola. Most importantly– don’t forget to Love Yourself!
