Da ta da da! Today is the day I've been waiting for to share some exciting news! I was asked by my sweet new friend Elizabeth of Nutty News to join her in a new Project Life® inspired challenge. This exciting new challenge begins today and is geared towards encouraging you to think outside the box with your Project Life spreads by having a challenge theme. If you would like to join in on the fun, please visit 3P's Challenge and you can find all the details along with a place to link up your project!
First theme up is "Frosty Feathers".
Come check it out and download the amazing FREEBIE Elizabeth is offering along with the challenge!
My entry was made using a piece of 3x4 frosted vellum, then I added real white and tan feathers using adhesive. I topped that off with an owl wood veneer shape, using glitter card stock to create wings and whole punched confetti, then I added the sequins and gold snowflake stickers to the neighboring pocket.

Have you ever seen something for sale in a store and thought, "I wonder if I could make that?" That happened to me recently while browsing the mall one evening with my husband and parents. We were walking around a gift shop when some really cute glass fridge magnets caught my eye. I pointed them out to my mom and her ever crafty self pointed out in return that I could easily make those myself. She proceeded to share a list of things I'd need. That evening when I got home, I did a Pinterest search and happened across Sabby in Suburbia's blog where I found a quick little how-to. Last weekend I made a trip to Hobby Lobby to gather some supplies, then this afternoon when I had a little quiet time, I decided to give this DIY magnet idea a whirl... And I'm pretty happy with how my project turned out! In fact, I really love them!
Would you like to give this DIY a try? Here's what you'll need:
- Round Glass Marbles, with a flat back
- Strong magnets
- Mod Podge
- Super Glue
- Scrapbook Paper
- Scissors or a Circle Punch
Here's how-to: Using the scrapbook paper, cut (or punch) a circle that will fit the flat back side of the glass marble. Mod Podge the paper to the back of the marble and allow to dry. Dab a bit of super glue to the top center of your magnet and then add the marble, paper side to the magnet. Allow to dry and voila! DIY Glass Marble Fridge Magnets.
