HELLO! I am so pleased to introduce our 2nd edition of “Make Pretty Stuff”! I just love the ability to visit this little e*ideabook over and over via any electronic device of choice! This issue showcases several new products which are available right now in 400+ JoAnn Craft Stores across the country. I designed this collection by dreaming up 8 different ce “project starters.” THEN, I e Lie sh imagined the types of projects ma n I would want to make, and went to work designing all of the different things I need to ‘Make Pretty Stuff’. I have organized this edition into chapters according to those “project starters.” In each chapter we have showcased projects that will get your creative wheels turning and we will introduce you to all of the glorious “toppings” you can add to any, and ALL of your creations! cr

y Ka

These projects are intended to be ‘off the page’ and will make seriously AMAZING gifts for people you love (hello dad’s and grad’s)! They look fantastic sitting on a desk, adorning a spot in a bookcase and even right on top of your kitchen counter! Never underestimate the power of a hand-made gift full of beautiful photos and treasured memories! Download the project sheets to follow our instructions, or create your own versions! Be sure to click HERE to visit my website to find a store near you and see the entire collection. We would LOVE to see what you make!

stencil IDEAS

Position the star stencil over tag and spray with a light spritz of teal color shine. 1

Position the diagonal stripe stencil so that the stripes are horizontal across the top of the tag only, and spray evenly with teal color shine. 2

Lay the polka dot stencil over the tag, and spray with a combination of blush and gold color shine. 3

Position the diagonal stripe stencil over the tag and spray with blush color shine; slide the stencil down so that it is covering the Blush color, and spray with Teal Color Shine. 4

Position the 6x6 circle lattice die cut color magic paper over the tag, and spray with blush color shine. Locate the page die cut paper “Favorite” and position it above the lattice design, and spray with blush color shine. Mask off any exposed tag with a paper towel. 5

Locate the 6x6 Color Magic paper with the arrow die cut; position over a mini rectangular tag and spray with seafoam color shine. 6

Position the diagonal stripe stencil vertically and spray with blush color shine. Move the stencil down slightly, and spray again with blush color shine. The color will appear darker where the color has been layered. 7

Position the polka dot stencil first, and spray with coral color shine, move the stencil slightly and spray with blush color shine, this will give a slight shadow for the stencil design. 8

Place the diagonal stencil over the tag, and spray teal color shine only over the bottom section of the tag. Add a soft spray over the diagonal design. Position the word “BLISS” from the 6x6 color magic paper and spray with teal color shine. 9

Place letters from the glitter alphabet “LOVE” on the oval tag, and spray over the top with seafoam color shine. Remove the letter stickers. 10

Spray tag first with seafoam color shine. Place the diagonal stripe stencil over the top and spray with teal color shine. 11

Locate the chevron die cut from the die cut tags. Spray with blush color shine; move the tag down 1/8th” and spray with coral color shine. 12

Place 3 mini stars from the enamel stickers over tag and spray over the top with coral color shine. Remove the stickers. 13
