Crafty Goodness from Across the Pond…

Hello lovelies! Please let me apologise first for making you jealous today. If you were a regular SGT reader, you might remember the craft swap I did with Bev from Flamingo Toes – well, we enjoyed the swap so much that we decided to do the swap again :)

OK, just in case you haven’t encountered Flamingo Toes yet (like, really, go have a look, sweetheart!), here are some of my favourite tutorials from Bev: Anthro’s Pompearl Necklace Knockoff, Simple & Sweet Shoe Refashion, A Simple Clutch (Applique Version), and Spring Vintage Linen Table Runner. See? So many inspirations and crafty skills!!!

Now, please let me share you the goodies I received from the crafty queen :)

craft swap

Yeeees, Podge love! I begged Bev for some Mod Podge, and I was super excited when I held them in my hands for the first time in my life!!!! And there were loads more things that I’ve never seen before, like paper straws and cutest clothespins (you American guys are so lucky to have these sweet things!).

Gorgeous set of trims, jewellery charms, tags (seriously, who’d thought you could get burlap tags?!) and bezels. These bezels are perfect for Mod Podge Dimensional Magic – can’t wait to make some pendants with them!

Bev also included a letter ‘E’ and decoupage papers. I’ve been collecting letter ‘E’s for quite some time, so I was really excited to receive it (and a new font for me as well!).

OK, now. I was beyond happy and excited to receive every one of them, but Mr T was also super excited. Wanna see why?

Yes, my hubby Mod Podged some fabric onto his iPhone case :)

He simply covered a plain white case with Mod Podge, placed roughly cut fabric on top, trimmed the sides and holes to fit the case’s shape, and then gave 3 coats of Mod Podge. See how the fabric turned into oil cloth-ish texture? It’s quite sturdy, and I was amazed what Mod Podge could do – seriously, think about all the possibilities!!

Anyways, I have a really fun and easy tutorial using Mod Podge Dimensional Magic on Friday, so make sure you come back :)

P.S. Thank you so much again for the craft swap, Bev! Sending lots of kisses from me & Mr T xxxx
