Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop: April Fools


This blog hop is all about April Fools, so how fitting that I'm running ridiculously behind in posting it! If you've come from Jackie's blog, welcome, if this is your first stop, don't forget to check out the others' projects!

My first project came to me while I was playing with the Alphanumeric Simply Pressed Clay mould. I was making random letters when I realized it reminded me of the magnetic letters I had on my fridge in university. I decided to make something with them that reminded me of that. I took my letters and added colour to them with my ink pads, and glazed them with Crystal Effects.


Then as luck would have it, I visited our friend Deborah! The rest of the Water Cooler Gang doesn't know we met in person, but I had a great time with her just chatting away the other day. AND in coincidences to end all coincidences, she lives only a couple of doors down from where that infamous fridge was!


I did use some retired products on my canvas, and the cards on it where ones I received from my lovely friends in the Water Cooler. But I think I can be forgiven for bending the rules a little for April Fools!


I've been loving my shaker cards too! Most of the cards I've seen with this set of framelits have had a cut out balloon popped up on a card, so I decided to reverse it and fill the balloon with confetti! Those stars just make me happy...


And finally, I'll leave you with a piece of advice from a stamp set I love...


I hope you enjoyed my projects, hop along to see everyone else's work, either go forward to Marie's blog, or backwards to Jackie's! You can also head over to the main site to see the master list of posts.

Any of the current products I used here are available through your demonstrator or any of the Water Cooler Gang.

  2. Hi Stefanie, thanks for being part of the blog hop. As usual you do not disappoint. I love that nostalgic use of the Alphanumeric set. That really does look just like the fridge letters, some of which made their way onto my fridge, thanks to my grandsons. I've sat on the fence since the Occasions Catalogue came out, not quite committing to that cute Project Life stamp set. You may just have pushed me off the fence.
