Tiffany Windsor, her sister Heidi and her grand niece Savannah have put together so many wonderful ideas for creating unique creations!

I love the customizing an "already" scarf to a really perfect idea just for you!

The projects are split into seasons!  Every season has wonderful photos and tips to get the very best results!  It also gives you tips on how to wear, twist, knot and more your finished creations!

Working for a retailer that sells scarves this have been inspirational and I will be using some of the ideas in an upcoming scarf night at Christopher and Banks!

Below is the photo of the summer section and I LOVE the colors.

Clearsnap Blog Hop

Pin It


I am participating in this fun hop of Clearsnap & Ann Butler Designs!  Clearsnap manufactures some of Ann Butler's amazing faux quilting stamps and Crafter's Inks.  

I am creating a frame using some fun products!  Let's get started!
 I started with the Crafter's Ink and coated the frame.  I then used one of the foam backed stamps and Canyon Ink.
 I then used some of the new Pumpkin Pie Spritzer and sprayed the entire surface.  I covered the surface with clear and sparkle embossing powder and heat set.
 Next I used an art screen by Ann Butler and Deep Woods ink to add texture.  I added more embossing powder and heat set.
 I added some bling from Connie Crystal and some flowers.  I sprayed the flowers with some Spritzer Ink and then just hit the tips with white paint.  
 I attached all the embellishments and added my photo of Rod Stewart!  

 A closer look.
 Thanks for visiting and hope you hop to the other blogs too!  Leave a comment to be entered for the prize package!
