Make an adorable dragonfly pin with Denise Boddey Designs. @deniseboddeydesigns #sponsored @DecoArtAcrylicPaints
Follow along as I make this adorable Dragonfly Pin using a chipboard design piece from Denise Boddey Designs. This post is created as a part of the design team and some materials have been provided to use in this post. You can make your pin in different colors if you wish. Make one match a special outfit or for a special occasion. The Dragonfly Pin would also make a great gift or an embellishment for a card or mixed media project.
Since the chipboard is dark, I used white chalk paint to coat the dragonfly. I found it needed two coats to fully cover the piece. Now the colors will show up better.
I used a variety of paint colors and applied them in a dabbing motion. You can see what I mean in the video tutorial below.
To enhance the wings, I painted the entire dragonfly with White Enchanted Shimmer and while still wet, I applied chunky glitter to the wings.
To finish off the dragonfly, I used UV resin to seal the piece. If you don’t have UV resin you could use a variety of different sealers. Spray varnish coating or Diamond Glaze would work as alternatives.
Using the WRMK Planner Punch Board to replace pages in a disk system notebook. @WeRMemoryKeepers
I bought the We Are Memory Keepers Planner Punch Board for a very specific purpose. I wanted to replace some pages from a notebook I bought at the Dollar Tree. I didn’t like the green paper it came with and I wanted to replace the pages with white paper. I like the disk system, however; I don’t use a paper planner and I am not a person who uses journals so I didn’t have a lot of need for punching for a disk system until now.
I found the Punch Board at Tuesday Morning at a discounted price so I went ahead and purchased it.
Opening the box, the board comes with a few different punches. The three colors of the punches don’t really coordinate styles as you will see in the video below.
My pages are replaced and I am much happier with the white pages versus the green.

Make a pair of silver and gold earrings using materials from The Maker’s Movement. #sponsored @jointhemakersmovement
with The Makers Movement
I really enjoy making earrings. Some of the easiest earrings to make use a die to cut the shape. The silver and gold earrings above are made using a die and other materials from The Maker’s Movement. I like the combination of silver and gold especially when you can’t decide which color of metal works with your outfit the best. Or if you are going to wear different metals for other jewelry pieces, these earrings can pull it all together.
