School Shoes with Plenty of Attitude

Anyone who has ever had to wear a uniform to school knows that one of the best ways to show some style is with your shoes. Fashionable mom McCall Pinnell and her daughter dreamed up the idea of having shoes and headbands that matched the school uniform. The idea was such a success, that friends starting requesting them. And soon, the online shop Maclaren's Closet was born. 

We thought this was such a stellar, stylish idea, we wanted to share it with everyone in our crafting community! Just look how cute the different designs have turned out. McCall has even started customizing American Doll shoes, too. Check out the company's Facebook page for details and updates.

"We chose the name Maclaren’s Closet because of her creative influence and the strength of her inspiration to help me reach toward my goals," McCall said on her website. "Maclaren’s Closet brand will sell a lifestyle image of sophistication, class and taste with a preppy look for children attending private schools."

  

 

#MixedMediaMonday Romantic Vintage Décor

Craft Attitude pro Anne Grbic turned a basic gesso board into a romantic vintage art piece using Craft Attitude film and crackle paste to give it an aged look. She applied the crackle to the board, then adhered the rose image, which was printed on Craft Attitude film. She then applied a layer of pearl glaze to give it a pretty sheen.

She finished the piece off with some lace, pearls and other embellishments, and placed it all on a decorated MDF plaque.

This close-up image shows how the rose printed on Craft Attitude film conforms to the crackled surface:

Tuesday Tips: Containers of All Types: Personalized!

AWe know one thing you'll need plenty of this holiday season: Containers for gift boxes, cookies and candies, trinkets, keepsakes and even leftovers! Here are several ways to take your containers to the next level and personalize them for every occasion.

  

Special Shapes: Eileen Hull makes a variety of boxes using the Sizzix Big Shot die cutter and any of the container dies available in our super store. Here's a quick video from Eileen that shows you how:

Upcycle Cookie Tins: Give those old cookie tins a modern new look by covering them with Krylon paint and adding some snowflake embellishments and names, like these, created by Andrea Atwater. So easy!

Grandma's Treasures: Anne Grbic took an ordinary round cardboard box and turned it into a sweet gold box with photos of the grandkids by using gold paint over the box, printing the photos and the words "Grandma's Treasures" onto Craft Attitude film and adhering those with adhesive, followed by gloss varnish placed over the images and finished off with a bunch of bling. Grandma is sure to display this somewhere special. 

Cute Leftovers Tubs: And finally, Jonathan Fong came up with this great idea to take ordinary plastic tubs and give them a cute, customized touch using Craft Attitude film. Just swap out the Thanksgiving design for the holiday of your choice!

Mixed Media Monday: Vintage Santa Print

Craft Attitude pro Anne Grbic created this lovely Vintage Santa décor piece using a frame, Craft Attitude film and some floral and lace embellishments. 

 

"I printed one of my favorite patterns on Craft Attitude film to decorate the frame and the background and to print the Vintage Santa," Anne says. "I 'grunged up' the smaller board before adhering the Santa, and then used foam tape to 'lift' it from the background. I then finished the piece off with lace and flowers. The Vintage Santa image is from the website The Graphics Fairy, which has many free printables you can download."

Materials needed: 

Frame

Craft Attitude Film

Embellishments

'Print' on Metal? Now You can!

You can't print on crafting metal, but you could add an image with Craft Attitude film, and then emboss it. Imagine the possibilities! This same technique could be used for cards, artwork, gift trinket boxes, jewelry, bottles and lots more.

Anne Grbic created this look by printing the image onto Craft Attitude with her inkjet printer, adhered the print to gold crafting metal, and then embossed the entire piece.

She created the piece below with the same technique, applying the print onto a piece of copper with the top embossed in a maple leaf pattern.

"It’s much prettier live because the sheen shows through more than in the photo," she says. "I printed my image on Craft Attitude, adhered ink side down to the embossing metal, then, using an embossing folder and machine, embossed the entire piece. Because the Craft Attitude film has a matte finish, I applied the Liquitex Gloss Varnish over the print and over the edges for a gloss finish to match the metal."

Materials used: 

Craft Attitude Printable Film

Aerosol Spray Adhesive

Copper or Gold Metal Embossing Sheets

Embossing Folders

Sizzix Texture Boutique Embossing Machine

Liquitex Gloss Varnish and Sealer

Christmas Cards with Attitude

This year, we're all about bringing back the tradition of mailing out Christmas cards ... you know, individually signed and stamped and all that. We're even going so far as to encourage that you use all your crafty creativity to make cards yourself. What could be a more lovely sentiment than something handmade that arrives in the mail? 

You'll certainly find a great batch of Christmas-related paper crafts here on our site. To take your cards to the next level, consider using Craft Attitude film on textured paper. Simply print out your image on Craft Attitude film using your inkjet printer, cut the image to size, apply adhesive (glue stick or spray) on the printed side, press the image, glue side down, onto the textured paper and then remove the white backing. 

Here are a few examples of how our Craft Attitude pros Andrea Atwater and Anne Grbic really elevated their handmade cards.

Made with embossed papers, ribbons, self-adhesive jewels and Craft Attitude:

7 Days of Ornaments: Day 3

Add some personalized shimmer and shine to your tree this year with photos printed on Craft Attitude film and placed on holographic stars along with some pretty bling.

Here's how it was done:

Kids pictures were sized to the center of holographic stars and printed on Craft Attitude film. You can use your computer software to make the circles and place the photos inside them, or manually cut the photos into the correct size circles.

Print the photos onto Craft Attitude film, trim the circles to size and glue print side down in the center of the star. Remove the Craft Attitude liner and press the photo with your fingers to adhere it well to the star. The holographic print will show through the photo for a dazzling effect.

Embellish the star with bling of your choice. Repeat those steps on other side of each holographic star so the ornament will look great from any side.

Place each ornament next to or slightly behind a light on the tree as the light will radiate off the holographic surface and look really pretty.

Materials Needed:

To make the stars, cut chipboard (or recycle a cereal box) and use Sizzix Die Cut Machine to cut the stars with a star-shaped die.

Cover with self-adhesive holographic paper trimmed to the size and shape of the star.

Bling!

7 Days of Ornaments: Day 2

Personalize Christmas ornaments and give them a nostalgic feel with black-and-white photos. 

 

Simply print your images to size on a Craft Attitude sheet in reverse. Use a glue stick and apply completely on the raw ceramic ornament. Peel, flip and apply the Craft Attitude film image on the ornament and trim with a cutting tool around the edges  (you can readjust the image). Add a ribbon or twine and hang on your tree!

Now Available: Tech and Locker Attitude!

If you've gotten crafty with Scrapbooking, Decor or Jewelry Attitude, you're going to love Locker Attitude and Tech Attitude! These two products are now available to purchase on our site.

These Craft Attitude products are different from others in that they are self-adhesive, so there's no need for a glue stick or spray adhesive to get them to stick. You also do not need to print images with words in reverse as you do with other Craft Attitude products. Simply print your image with an injet printer, peel off the backing and stick your design wherever you'd like. 

Another bonus: If you stick your Tech or Locker Attitude somewhere and change your mind, it's easily repositionable. And unlike duct tape, if it happens to fold over and stick to itself -- heck, even if you wad it up in a ball -- you'll be able to easily unstick it from itself, and it will return to its normal shape. And whatever you choose to stick the print on will not be damaged, so it won't peel paint off of a locker or wall, for example. 

Teens will love to take all their selfies and stick them to their computers, phones, lockers, walls or wherever else you'll let them. Here are a few fun designs to get your creativity going. Have fun, and be sure to share your projects with our crafting community on our Facebook page so we can see your attitude!

   

Craft Your Stash ... and More Fun from Lisa Fulmer

We're happy to pass along some great news for one of our fave craft bloggers, Lisa Fulmer, whose book "Craft Your Stash" was released this month and is doing really well. It's available to purchase right HERE on CraftAttitude.com! Lisa helps crafters take all those little leftover bits and turn them into something really special. There are 19 projects included that use up paper, fabric, paints, rub-ons, stamps, ribbon, glitter and lots more.

This art panel was made in just a few minutes using a Smoothfoam square, some ink and a Picasso quote printed (in reverse) on Craft Attitude film, which was then glued print-side down. Both the ink and the film pick up the foam's texture to create a neat art piece. Read more on Lisa's blog HERE.
