Triple Play Bloghop - Candy Stripe House



We're up and running.... What fun - I have to tell you a little story about my house. Recently I spent a day decorating a store front with my good friend, Cyndi. Well as you can imagine I was covered in glitter upon returning home soooo... I decided this was the time to decorate my little house since glitter was already in my hair, up my nose etc. While this seemed like a good idea here is the problem.


Never try to use an iron on anything while covered in glitter it does not work as the glitter covers the fusible web and then sticks to nothing. My advice: give yourself a good shake and then proceed to work on your blog hop entry.


Here is mine:


I used fabric, buttons, fusible web, spray adhesive, fringed trim and lots of glitter. Oh Yeah and all this wonderfulness is on top of Eileen Hull's Scoreboard die # 656836 Simple and clean kind of like me when I brush off the glitter.


See you next time.
