Today it’s all about my trip to Old Navy and this fabulous Powder Dyed Shirt. Let’s be real, when you add Tie-Dye to anything you get a bundle of happiness. Here is PROOF! Powder Dyed Shirt When I was asked by I love to Create to make a fabulous DIY with some of Old Navy’s new line of spring clothes I was JUMPING FOR JOY, literally. I had no clue what I was planning on creating until I walked in the store. I think for a minute I was upset I only had to create ONE thing once my eyes saw the new spring line. I know you will love this powder dyed technique I used so let’s check it out.  k Be sure what you want and be sure about yourself. Fashion is not just beauty, it’s about good attitude. You have to believe in yourself and be strong
-Adriana Lima

As you can see there were so many choices. I knew I wanted crisp and bold so I ended up going with this “Textured-Dobby Shirt”. Since I am using Tulip Tie-Dye I made sure the shirt was 100% cotton. I almost bought these white pants and pink button down but I changed my mind in the end.

Wahoo! Time to check out and CREATE! Yep, you see that black and white striped ball? I can’t wait to show you what I created with this.  11.jpg
You will need:
* Tulip Tie-Dye
Women’s Textured-Dobby Shirts
whiteshirt
I am using the Mini Tie-Dye Kit. DSC_0139 As you can see the bottles have powder inside of them already. We will not fill the bottles with water for this project.  DSC_0141 STEP ONE: Fill a bowl with water and wet your shirt.  learn to tie dye
STEP TWO: Twist water out of shirt and lay it down on a clean surface, flat and unbuttoned. Lay your shirt on a garbage bag if you can’t find a clean spot.

STEP THREE: Remove cap from bottle and lightly shake bottle over wet shirt. The powder will slowly start coming out of the bottle.  kids crafts
I used all of the colors in the pack. If you are not a fan of bright colors you can use one or two colors. This technique looks great with a single color or multiple colors.  how to mix dye I love how all of the colors start bleeding together. If you know me then you know bright it right!  mixing colors You want to let the powder sit on the wet shirt for a couple of hours. The longer it sits the brighter the colors will be.  confetti tie dye
I simply love the dye that was left behind. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  DSC_0202 After a few hours I rinsed my shirt under cool running water then washed it separately. WOWZERS! I am so happy with the way it turned out.  DSC_0193 old navy tie dyed shirt DSC_0195
This shirt looks great paired with anything.  POWDER DYED SHIRT craftgawker

I hope you enjoyed this post.
Have you ever dyed anything using the powder????

Fun Summer CRAFTS

It’s Bloggy Love Thursday and that means I am sharing with you some awesome crafts to get you ready for the Summer! These are all kid friendly which is always a big plus.

* Paper Lantern Balls  by Mark Montano. I couldn’t be more excited about this project. It’s taking a paper ball and making it look like you spent a whole-lotta money on it.

*DIY Pinch and Twist Tie Dye Technique  by Margot Potter. Now this screams Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring to me. My mind is all over the place thinking about what I can do this on. Curtains?! Hmmm…

*Zebra Stripe Lawn Flamingo  by Heather Mann. First of all I am prolly the one person who LOVES pink flamingoes in my yard. But a ZEBRA one…This is genius. I am thinking of a Leopard one now, right.

*Princess Party Necklaces by Cathie Filian at Handmade Happy Hour. I seriously want to wear every single color of these and at the same time. What a perfect time to make these. They would be great for a kids party!

I hope you enjoyed your weekly dose of my crafty friends!
Which craft could you see yourself doing first?

Happy Tuesday Jaderbugs! I am super stoked about this week. I am finishing up on something HUGE and although I can’t tell you now, I promise to share in about a week. I know, I know… You are probably shaking your head at me right!

My good friend Ed Roth designed all of the stencils that I used today. I always look at his stencils and try to figure out what I love the most about them. I finally figured it out. It’s the simplicity of them. So many people think stencils have to be super detailed (don’t get me wrong he has a lot of perfectly detailed stencils) but you get what I mean. It’s the simplicity and repetition of shapes that attracts me the most to his stencils. I have been wondering what I would make with his small stencils and lemme tell you I figured it out.  Since I am always mailing notes to friends I figured it would be much better if they opened an envelope to a hand crafted note card. RIGHT!

If you are thinking on the save wave path as me then let’s hurry and get on the stencil train…..or stencil ride…or whatever ride, cause it’s time to do stenciled notecards.

Stenciled Notecards

 Don’t you love how detailed they are! I just know I will make someone smile with them!

How to make stenciled notecards

Start by placing the stencil on top of the note card. Gently press one side of the stencil to make sure it does not move.

You can use any stencil you want for this project. When you move to the next section of the note card place the top line of the stencil on the last one that you painted. This will give you consistency overall.

I put a little squirt of each color I am using on my pallet. I love the way dried paint looks.

Make sure to dab in multiple colors when doing one card. You can add a few colors to make it pop.

There is something about writing in a journal or sketch book everyday. Maybe it’s the fact that you document little tid bits of your day, a memory of something or sketches of things you love. I remember when I was a little girl I had a diary with a key. I loved that thing SO much until one day I went to write in it and could not find the key. I guess I was so paranoid that someone would read what I wrote that I hid the key in a spot that I couldn’t even remember! I think that was an early detection that I had ADD. I wish I still had that diary…

Today I will show you how to decorate a Sketchbook to reflect who you are! It’s super fun and every time you look at it you will smile. I promise.

Decorate a Sketchbook

 

you will need *Glitter
*Brush
*Mod Podge
Inspirational Stickers
*Journal or Sketchbook

You can purchase any of the items I used today by clicking on the links.

Are you excited yet? HEHE

I love Cosmo Cricket stickers! They are absolutely my FAVORITE.

Decorate a Sketchbook- jaderbomb

Find stickers or words that make you happy and would encourage you to write and place them on the cover. Have fun with it! I wanted my cover very simple but you can put any sticker that makes you happy inside.

Once you place your stickers on the cover coat the entire cover with Mod Podge. You can use any finish that you would like.

Don’t worry about the stickers coming off. The one thing I love about Cosmo Cricket stickers is how thick they are. They almost feel like card stock which I like!

When you put the Mod Podge on it will look white like this picture. I promise when it tries it will be translucent.

The next thing I did was put a little Mod Podge on my plate and sprinkled glitter in it. I used Martha Stewart’s coral pink.

Mix it good together with the Mod Podge!

Then coat your journal anywhere you would like. I did the side to add a little bit of color to it. Remember when it dries it will be clear the and glitter will shine bright like a diamond!

This is the final product! Now my stickers are on for good and the glitter will never come off. Every time I look at this I smile.

What will you put on your journal?

Quote of the day:
“Glad we are still alive to enjoy this pillow tutorial” -jaderbomb

Oh what a happy day! I had so much fun making this pillow and I know you will too. It’s obvious I love doing crafts that an adult or child could do by themselves or possibly together. I think there is something special that happens when you craft with your little ones. Trust me, they remember it!  I can’t tell you the last time I Tie Dyed something. I didn’t want to make a “shirt” because that is what everyone does. Making a basic tie dyed pillow sounded like the thing that would put a smile on my face!

Let’s get started with our Tie-Dyed Pillow.

Tie-Dyed-Pillows-By-Jaderbomb.com

This is what you will end up making. I like our bed to be completely white but every now and then it’s fun to give it a PUNCH of color!

Tie-Dyed-Pillows-By-Jaderbomb.com

I used the Tulip one step Tie Dye Kit.

Tie-Dyed-Pillows-By-Jaderbomb.com

It’s super easy to do because the bottles already come with powder in them. All you have to do is fill them up with water. Make sure to stop at the line. You don’t have to wear gloves but your hands will be stained if you don’t. Be creative when you put your rubber bands. After all, the bands are the things that break up the color so make it fun!

 

Tie-Dyed-Pillows-By-Jaderbomb.com

You can see I just started squeezing color onto my shirt in different spot. Remember that color chart from when you were a kid.
Red + Blue = Purple
Yellow + Blue = Green
Red + Yellow = Orange

The reason whey I want you to know this is because even if you only have a few colors you can make so many more by pairing them up with other colors. This is my favorite part.

Tie-Dyed-Pillows-By-Jaderbomb.com

This is my mess when I was done. You want to let it dry outside over night or 7-8 hours. I did mine in the afternoon so checking on it in 7 hours would of meant me getting up in the middle of the night….
Well. I decided it wouldn’t hurt a few more hours, haha. When you let it dry rinse it out, then wash it. Don’t wash with other clothes.

Tie-Dyed-Pillows-By-Jaderbomb.com

When you are done washing and drying lay your shirt out on a flat surface. Make sure you turn the shirt inside out. Lay your pillow down on top of the shirt. Get a piece of chalk and outline the pillow. Sew all of the sides except one. Cut all of the edges then turn the shirt right side out.

Stuff your pillow inside and then hand sew the side that we didn’t sew.
That’s it Jaderbugs!

I wanted to include this fun print for you. I thought it was so cute and perfect for this time of year!

Sending you and yours and HUGE hug from my family to your’s….

Oh HAPPY day Jaderbugs! I have this post I am working on featuring 5-10 homemade crafts you can make to decorate your Christmas tree with. That will be coming up this week but I wanted to share a few of my favorite ones with you now. I love making things that fill those empty spots in my Christmas tree. You know? Those spots that are screaming for love and affection? This year is the FIRST year we ever got a real tree. It was so much fun going through the entire process. Lil one had fun picking it out. The one thing I didn’t realize is that you can’t BEND the branches like a fake tree.

HAHA.

Do you know what this means? HUGE spots that need love and affection. I tried sticking ornaments in those lonely spots but it was just not working. Our living room tree’s theme is GOLD, WHITE and a pop of red. I thought why not add a little bit’O candy in the tree and that is where this idea came from. I didn’t want to go out and buy candy ornaments because they are super duper expensive and I just don’t like throwing away money like that.  I hope you enjoy this craft because they turned out SO cute. Just think you can do silver ones and put bright fun paper around them. I love this because you can be creative and add paper on them that you personally love.

Stay tuned because I have THREE trees in the house this year so you will be seeing some fun ways to decorate a tree. Did I mention each room has a different theme? Eh…. I know. I have OCD.
Let’s get started:

INGREDIENTS:

*Scissors
*Twine
*Mylar Tissue (purchased from Walgreens)
*Scrapbook paper
*Paper towel roll

You can click on any of the ingredient links to purchase these items in ONE spot.

 The first thing I want to tell you is this Mylar Paper is GOLD and SILVER. This is what it looks like right from the package. You can see that there will be a crease from where it was folded.

If you flip the paper over it will be silver. I didn’t know this until I bought it. I think this is great because you can choose this side if you don’t want GOLD.

The first thing I did was lay my cardboard roll on the edge of tissue, roll it over so see where I need to cut.  The goal is to have no cardboard showing.

Once you cut it it will look like the picture below. It will be too “long” so you will need to cut the strip in half. I used the crease that was already showing as a guideline.

Once you cut it wrap your roll with the tissue paper and secure with tape. I like to use double stick tape so I can “hide” the tape from the human eye. It actually just looks a little better this way.

Get a piece of twine and tie it around the ends of the roll. This will give us that CANDY look. Are they not so cute? I planned on leaving them just like this but I really wanted them to pop.

Soooo. I added red and white chevron paper around them.

This is what they will look like once you are done! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial… Make sure and post yours on my facebook page so I can share with my readers. I love seeing your take on one of my crafts.

Don’t forget to make it a DIY kinda day,
