Personalizing My Ikea Finds for the Kitchen…

Personalizing My IKEA finds for the kitchen…

When you live 3 hours in any direction from the nearest IKEA,  you make your husband

stop anytime you’re close.

Since I didn’t have advance notice to prepare and my husband only has the patience to

go around once.  I just grabbed without real purpose.

I really wish I would have bought more, a return trip is needed.

Here are the plain Ikea finds before being personalized!

This summer, we’ve been working on updating our kitchen.

It’s been a slow process.

Recently we had a kitchen sink dilemma…which halted choosing a backsplash tile.

For a distraction…a couple cute little DIY projects were in order.

A “Rae Dunn” inspired planter.

I love working with vinyl.  For my “Rae Dunn” inspired planter,

I used my Silhouette Cameo 3* to create the words “be happy” out of

Matte Black Removable Adhesive Vinyl* from StyletechCraft.      (*affiliate link)

I simply applied the words onto my planter using Vinyl Transfer Tape*.

So easy to do.

Removable vinyl makes it easy to change out my words with the seasons.

Did you know that this vinyl will remove cleanly for up to two years?

This vinyl film is great for decorating a kid’s room, a classroom or just about

anywhere you just need a temporary graphic.

And, with 27 colors available, it’s not hard to find the perfect color

for whatever you can dream up!

I have dish soap issues.

I like to keep it handy, but, hate the way the regular sized

plastic bottle looks on the counter.

I usually buy the smaller bottles.  (just slightly better)

Solution… I picked up the cute soap dispenser during my last trip to IKEA

and also personalized it with the Silhouette Cameo 3*.

This time I created a small label using Matte Black Removable Adhesive Vinyl*  

and words using Matte White Removable Adhesive Vinyl*.

It looks so much better than plastic soap bottles.

Fingers crossed, I’ll be sharing the kitchen project soon!

Coloring with Derwent and Xyron

I recently received a special box of Derwent Procolour Colored Pencils* to try out along with

the Derwent Big Book*.  As soon as I got them, I couldn’t wait to try them and scribble in my

new sketch book.  I have used several different brands of colored pencils through the years and

I was impressed by the smooth clean lines and easy blending.

  

Happy with my scribbling…I decided to keep the page and add the words “Be Happy”.

This would be a great start to a scrapbook layout.

  

I also used my new Derwent Procolour Colored Pencils* to color in a page from a

Mini Coloring Book* for grown-ups.  I adhered the coloring page to cardstock using my

Xyron Mega Runner* for a quick and easy card.

Crafting with Office Supplies

crafting with office supplies 2 07793

When you think of crafting do you ever think office supplies?

Would you believe…

the “be happy” sign, which is now sitting happily on my fireplace mantel,

started out as a office name plate holder

A few stickers, chipboard letters, washi tape and voila a happy little reminder.

There are surfaces everywhere just waiting to be embellished.
