My SNE Proejct & New Shape!

Today I'm finally going to share a picture of my project from Stamp New England! I can't believe it's been almost a month now since our fabulous, fun event - my how time flies!

I wanted to give everyone a chance to try something a bit different, to try altering one of the fun shapes from Say It With Letters. Sweet Deb asked me to try a few new designs for SIWL- one being a Birdhouse (which I will be sharing in it's altered form in the coming days). As I was playing around with some shapes I made an oops - but after a minute I realized it wasn't a mistake, but a cute Chubby Lil Chick that had just hatched! :) Deb and her husband were so wonderful when I emailed to see if they could whip up 37 of these chickies in a month!! (Plus they also donated some adorable products for our door prizes!).

So here is the final product, our chicks were 6". They are sold in the SIWL shop at 8" but one of the great things about SIWL is that they can do any shape for you from 6" up to 48"!!! Amazing, huh? Just email them if you need a custom size.

I had so much fun adding springy elements to this project! The paper is from My Mind's Eye (purchased at Emma's Paperie, of course!). The wing is some fabulous wool felt that I am sooo in love with now! The rub-ons are from Melissa Frances and perfect for this chickie! The crocheted flowers were made by my mom and me - all 37 of them! Thanks Mom!!

Oh and I have to give a HUGE shout out to Beacon Adhesives - the makers of Zip Dry! I emailed them and told them how I would be using their product in my class and asked if they'd possibly donate a few bottles . . . well, they emailed me back the next day and sent more than enough Zip Dry for EVERYONE attending to get their very own bottle!!! It was like Oprah - lol! Thank you so much Beacon!! Seriously, I only use Zip Dry for projects like this - it doesn't make your paper ripple or pucker, it dries super fast and it rubs right off your hands and doesn't make a huge mess! LOVE it!

I kept it pretty simple so that we would have time to finish the class but I just had to add a cute little tag in case you wanted to use this as a gift. I used the 3 Step Hey Chick set from Kitchen Sink Stamps (who also donated several great prizes for our event - thanks Maria!!!) for the egg and sentiment and just love how all the colors worked together so nicely!

Be sure to check out the other great Spring-related shapes at Say It With Letters and if you decide to give the Chubby Lil Chick a try I'd love to see it!!
