Jody, where have you been?

I was told tonight in a very NICE way that I have been neglecting my blog. (Hi Darlene LOL) The truth is, I have been. With the holidays creeping up on me and being sick for so long I just went BLAH!

I would LOVE to share a project with you inspired by my beautiful girls!
This was made with chipboard coasters. A friend sent them to me last week and I was SO ready to try them out. I adhered patterned paper to the front of the coasters. Then, I sanded the edges. I stamped the cute Snowman and sentiment by A Muse and placed all the pieces on the coasters. Then, I attached the coasters together with some hinges. To finish it off, of course I had to adorn it with ribbon galore. The sentiment on this project says, "you make my heart melt." My girls DEFINITELY have that effect on me. :)
ETA: The hinges were thrown in my embellishment box, so I am not 100% sure who makes them. I am thinking they are making memories though. To attach them, I used my crop-o-dile and punched holes in the coasters to put the brads through. If I made another one, I would probably try a smaller hole. Tyhe hinges are a little "jiggly" and I would prefer them to be more sturdy. I used chalk inks to color the backside of the coasters. It is a darkish green that matches the green in the paper. :) I hope that answers your questions. :)


  1. OH! I'm glad you are back. I've been missing reading your blog and seeing your cool projects. I just got in on the latest order of coasters at SCS, so I was really excited to see your frame idea. TFS.

    Hope u r feeling better> my dh bought some energy drink let me know if u are intrested it is packed with vitamins.... tastes awful but it sure helps keep me going. Hugs

  3. I love your coaster project. One question, though. Did you do anything to the back side of it, or is it just white? I am waiting on my coaster order and can't wait to play. Where did you get your hinges?
    Thanks for any additional info.

  4. Very cute!! I'm also wondering about the hinges, where did you find them & how did you attach them to the coasters?? Thanks

  5. The coaster project is beautiful! And inspiring! I should make some for Christmas gifts!

  6. Jody~ What a beautiful project! And your girls are gorgeous too!
