Happy Easter!

Hi guys! Aimée here again for the April post. How cool is it that I get to post today? Super cool! Hope you all have a wonderful Day! I'm really excited about this month's project, I decided to do something completely different. I created 2 mixed media resin pendants.

This months special at The Robin's Nest is "Special Delivery" 20% off this month!

Ok let's get started!

I call this first one "Young at Heart".

Ingredients are a deep heart bezel pendant, ice resin (purchased at Hobby Lobby and all in the same section), Robin's Nest papers, sheet music, glitter, jump rings, cord for the necklace, dew drops.

Start by loosely trimming around the bezel in the shape of the heart with a craft knife. This paper is found here.

Next flip over the bezel and trace the inner edge.

Then trim it with scissors, it's hard to get it exact but it's not going to matter.

Next use the first heart you trimmed as a stencil and trace it onto the Pink Roses Vellum. Cut it out with scissors.

Lay the paper on top of each other inside the bezel and then rip out a flower piece from this paper.

Next I ripped out a piece of vintage sheet music and placed that over the top. (I'm just checking out the layers now to see how it looks placed there.)

Next I trimmed out a vintage photo of a sweet little girl and placed her on top.

Next I started to add in the layers with a glue/sealant. You could use golden matte medium or buy the paper sealant made for these pendants.

I sealed and layered in the papers and added some rhinestones for placement.

Next mix the 2 parts of Ice Resin in the cup and mix for 1 minute with the popsicle stick it the cup comes with.

Let it settle for about a minute.

You can either pour it in slowly or put it in bit by bit with the end of the popsicle stick (preferred).

Don't fill it to the top yet, add some sparkles. Let that layer settle for about 30 minutes.

Next it's ready for the next layer.

I added in a sealed piece of music nots, tissue paper and the vintage photo with colored in pink cheeks. I also put in another rhinestone and a few matching dew drops and a top layer of resin. Let it dry overnight and on a plastic bag or parchment paper.

Here she is fully cured, time to add her to a cord with a jump ring or 2.

Isn't she pretty??

NEXT UP the boy pendant necklace!

I did the same steps as above but with the boy paper and obviously a photo of a boy. This paper is called Belgian Chocolate mmmmmm! I then added a vintage looking star sticker I had.

Seal each part, back and front and let dry. Put it in the bezel.

Next I outlined the image with a white gel pen.

Next I added a white mother of pearl button. Add the resin and follow the above resin steps, let it dry overnight.

At the last minute I decided he didn't look like a good boy and crossed out the "good" with a black journaling pen. Funny thing is in the original photo he was holding his hands together like he was praying. Is he good?? Then I assembled it on a cord with jump rings and a pre-made trinket that dangles. There ya go! Hope you enjoyed this! I had a blast making them!

Special Delivery, Baby Boy Cards

This months special at The Robins Nest is "Special Delivery" 20% off this month!
The 2 cards below were created using some of this collection.
 I started with this reversible Special Delivery card stock, cut to a little less than 4x6".
I inked the edges with blue ink. The opposite side is the plaid that you see which I sized with a scalloped punch and  2 rings.

 I added some twine at the top of the card and glued the circles in place. I wrote the word "Boy" with a colored pencil and ink pen onto the white circle and added in place with foam tape.
 I inked some glittered letter stickers and placed them around the outside of the circle to spell. "Baby".
 For this "Genuine Boy" card, I distressed with brown ink the edges of a 4x6" card.  Then I added a 3.5" by a little less than 6" piece of Airplane card stock after I distressed the edges of that.

 I added some twine before placing the paper to the card. From The Genuine Boy Sticker Collection, I used the above image. I placed it onto a piece of plain card stock for some durability and added it to the front of the card with foam tape.
I finished the card with 2  Metallic Gold Dew Drops, and some amber Diamond Dew Drops.

Princess Mini Book Cover

3 Little Princess'

Hi all!

So I have had this idea for a long time that I wanted to create
an incredible

I have been working on this book
on and off for several weeks.
I have been saving a stash of embellishments
that I have been saving for a few
years just for this "dream" book that
I wanted to create, plus
I had to wait for a photo shoot with
my granddaughters to have all the things
I needed to create this book.
So now is the time to be creative! 

Today I will share with you just the cover of the book.

I used a mini book shape 5 1/2 x 11.
You can purchase these chipboard shapes
from our website as a 6 page book.

Girlie Girlie Cards

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by.  This month we are working with  the Special Delivery collection which is full of baby related products that can be used in non-baby projects.  We are also working with embossing folders from Ecstacy Crafts.

Steph here today to show you how fun and versatile this collection is.  I used the reverse side of the Special Delivery cardstock as well as the  Sweet Girl stickers. 

I embossed white cardstock with the embossing folder and lightly inked it in pink.  The sentiment was die cut from it's backing, matted on white cardstock and then placed back on it's backing.   Ribbon was tied around the card and the girl image was cut from the large tag and tied with some twine to the ribbon.  Sprinkle a few Metallic Pink Dew Drops around and a sweet card comes together quickly.

My next card uses Pink Roses on Cardstock as well as lots of  Pink Dew Drops around the floral images that were embossed on white cardstock..

After embossing the cardstock and inking with pink, I used the debossed side and added dew drops around the flowers.  I added Metallic Pink Dew Drops in the flower centers.

That's a lot of Dew Drops, but they stayed perfectly in place with the Best Glue Ever from ScraPerfect.

Thanks for stopping by today.

How to make an image transfer with scrap book paper

Image Transfer 

For This month's project I wanted to share a technique using scrapbook paper . Many times I find paper I really love so many beautiful images. I  love adding images as textures into my journal pages. My times it's easier for me to do an image transfer rather than trying to duplicate the image by drawing it myself. We would love to see what you come up with using this technique.

Thank you for following us here at Robins Nest,

Baby Blue

Baby Blue Bassinet
Spring is a time for new arrivals and if you're like me, you're most likely shopping for a baby gift and doing it in the last minute.
Well look no further, this little gift is BIG on charm and easy to make. You can fill it with a gift card or use it as decoration for your next baby shower.
I started out by making the "box". I showed you how to make a simple box in my last post HERE
And now I'm going to show you how easy it is to put together this little bassinette.

Don't be afraid to give this a try. I really didn't have a pattern to work from. Although, I'm sure there are die cut methods available to make something similar. You really don't need more than one piece of 12X12 paper, some ribbon, felt, two brads, cardboard, a little cardstock and DEW DROPS.
Go ahead and personalize this when you know who you're giving it to, but make some ahead of time and you'll be all ready for your next arrival. The Special Delivery collection at The Robins Nest will offer you some cute options for putting this together for either a boy or a girl. Find the entire collection HERE and remember that you will receive 20% off of this collection for the entire month of April. That is a sweet deal on these amazing papers and embellishments.
Thanks for watching and don't forget you can find this video and ALL of The Robins Nest video's on our YOUTUBE channel found HERE

Garden Bulb Box

Hello Robin's Nest Fans!

I have been waiting to show you how we made this fun Bulb Box, and today seems like as good of day as any.  My daughter Chelsea and I brainstormed for a few days, and this is our project.
I had a wine box that I have been saving because it looks so vintage.  I just couldn't figure our what I wanted to create with it...
The Garden Blog Hop perfect!
And by the way, if you didn't stop by the blogs, you should.  There are some awesome ideas!

I put together these pictures of how we created the box.  If we come off as random and sometimes backwards, well, that's just how we are :).

We started by using The Robin's Nest colored chipboard, and covered the top of the box.  We then drew our leaves on the backside of the chipboard, and fuzzy cut them out.  Chelsea bent the chipboard so that we could have more dimension.  We then adhered the dew drops to the leaves and petals.
For more visual art, we wrapped green wire around a toothpick and glues two tear drops to the end. (I stole this idea from Terri Sproul, thanks Terri!)

After dew dropping the petals and leaves with Dew Dew Glue, we started gluing everything together.  We twisted more chipboard and created ivy/grass; and used a black Sharpie to add spots on the lady bugs.  We also Sharpied the butterfly antenna's.

I added Robin's Nest Straw, which is a glittery wirey ribbon beneath the flowers and leaves for more texture.
Here are more pictures of the details.

I hope this inspires you to created something for your garden bulbs.  The wine box works perfect because of the stuff inside.  Some bulbs are fragile (I have found this out the hard way).

Have a fabulous day!
Until next time, Happy Crafting!
