Hi, crafters! Team member Monica here sharing how I decorated the Purple Border Craft Frame 4" x 6" that I decorated for my sister-in-law. My niece is not a small baby like this anymore and she is missing those days already. So I thought I would brighten her day by making her this frame so she won't ever forget her precious... although she is not so precious anymore little girl!

I used some Scrapiniec embellishments to decorate the frame front and added a sentiment to it that obviously was perfect!

I hope everyone enjoyed my post and thanks for stopping by.

Golf Themed Birthday Party

Throw a Golf Themed Birthday Party for the golfer in your life with Deflecto!
We recently celebrated a milestone birthday for my husband, who is quite the avid golfer. He’s been playing golf since he was a kid and even caddied as a teen. It only seemed fitting that we celebrate with a Golf Themed Birthday Party.

I kept the menu simple with his favorite foods; fried chicken, pasta, sandwiches, chips and salad.
For fun… I used golf lingo to create little signs to label some of the food.
I used “free golf clipart” that I found online and customized each sign using a free photo editing site. 

To clip the signs onto the serving dishes I used... 

Of course… there was the Water Hole and a Arnold Palmer Station.

Make a signature Arnold Palmer drink of lemonade and iced tea.
I used a 4" x 6" clear acrylic craft frame for my "Arnold Palmer Station" sign.

I used a mini 3" x 4" sign holder for my "grab your club" sign.

I easily hung this large 5' golf banner on the wall using the sign & banner hangers.

I had so much fun planning this special “Par-Tee” for my husband. It was easy thanks to a little help from Deflecto Craft Solutions.

Great Solutions for Small Rooms

Hello, dear crafty friends! Martha Lucia here to share with you my organization experience. My atelier or craft room is very small, and as usual, I have a lot of things that "I need to have" or use to create my paper crafts, but because I have problems remembering where I put things, I love to have them visible to don't forget them or duplicate. After experimenting with many things and looking around a lot, I found on Deflecto Craft Great Solutions for my Small Room!

I have a lot of small bottles with glimmers, inks, paints and embossing powders without counting my growing marker collection and Deflecto Craft has different designs of cubes that can be stacked according to our needs. These stackable cubes come totally clear or with black sides and clear fronts. Personally, I love them totally clear. They have different interior designs, for now, I am using cubes of 2 drawers, 4 drawers, and X-cubes. And today, I am also showing you the Interlocking Marker Organizer that will be available to buy very soon!

The 2 drawers cube is the perfect place to organize the embossing powders, glitters, and sparkles and see exactly the colors that I have. Can you believe that in each drawer I can store 16 bottles of embossing powder or 32 bottles of embossing powder in a cube with 2 drawers!!! I am totally fascinated by the 4 drawers cube. I store 16 bottles of Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist in this cube, and you know that these bottles aren't small, but they fix perfectly in these drawers.

And what I can tell you about the X-cube, it is the perfect place to have all my markers classified by type or colors, and if I want, I can carry the cube to my desk or painting place. I am actually using 6 cubes in my Atelier. They are interlocked and fit perfectly on one shelf of my wall storage.

With Deflecto Crafts not only do I have the organization of my Atelier, but I also have the inspiration to work and enjoy my tools! 

See you soon!
