I was scrolling through project photos today and came across this one that I don't remember sharing on my blog:

The photo itself is quite poor, but I fell in love with the card and envelope all over again.  I like the assorted textures on the card, and I also like the color combo . . . Powder Pink, Lemon Lime Twist, Soft Suede and, of course, Whisper White.

Remember that fantastic "Vintage Truck" transfer from Chalk Couture that I've been raving about?  Well, mine finally arrived yesterday, and today I created this huge (24" x 30" frame) design just in time for Fall.
Working on this design was quite fun and much easier than I thought it would be, mainly because the image transfer was quite smartly designed, taking into consideration the color layers that the user might prefer.  The Chalkology Paste colors that I used were:  White, Charcoal, Pumpkin, Orange, Mocha, Caribbean, and Thai Teal.  As predicted, the Vintage Truck transfer has already sold out, but I'll be glad to let you know when Chalk Couture replenishes the stock.

The swap theme for my class this month was Halloween, and I think everyone did a fantastic job!  Here they are:

Debbie used a fun pop-up fold that was one of our August class projects.  This is the festive front of her card:

And this is the inside:

I don't have any current Stampin' Up! Halloween designer paper or stamp sets, and I had to think really hard about how to create something Halloweenish.  This is what I came up with:

I used the tiny bat image from Glamper Greetings, created a cat (looking out the die-cut window with a piece of Tangerine Tango Foil Frenzy paper behind him) with the Fox Builder punch, Fringe Scissors were used to cut the nighttime grass, and the "spooky tree" was a die-cut from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits.
I was so pleased with how creative the swaps were this month, and I'm already looking forward to next month's swaps!

I've had the Fall Leaves transfer from Chalk Couture for a while, and I paired it with the brand new (available next month) Thanksgiving Place Setting transfer to create this Fall wreath.
The surface for my wreath is a 12x12 canvas:
The paste colors that I used were Tiffany, Pumpkin, Mustard, Brownie, Mocha, Brick, and Evergreen.
Be sure to like and follow my DECOR CREATIONS WITH REGINA Facebook page for more project samples, how-to videos, etc.


I am so excited about a brand new Chalk Transfer from Chalk Couture . . . it's appropriately named "Vintage Truck" (order yours HERE) and it looks like this:

This image transfer is so awesome!!!!  As a matter of fact, when I ordered one for myself, I actually placed a second order for one more of these transfers just in case something happens to the first one.  My orders haven't arrived yet, but one of my uplines had these "work in progress" photos to share:


I invite you to visit (and like/follow) my Facebook page, Decor Creations with Regina.  I have shared some videos there that show how to "transfer" the awesome images onto a chalkboard (or other) surface of your choice.  Where can you apply the transfers?  Chalkboards, walls, canvas, wood, metal, doors, glass, jars, etc.  Don't forget to order a few jars of Chalkology Paste!!!!

SEPTEMBER PROMOTION:  When you purchase 5 Chalk Transfers, you will receive a FREE Angled Squeegee!

The Chalk Transfer of the month at Chalk Couture is Ghosts and Ghouls (HERE), and it's just in time to begin working on Halloween projects.  As I was studying all of the fun images, it occurred to me that the spooky hand could hold a pumpkin!  With four jars of Chalkology Paste (Orange, White, Brownie, and Emerald), I designed this mini chalkboard stand in about 10 minutes.  It actually wouldn't have taken that long if I had been a smart cookie and had wipes and stirrers handy before I started.
Would you like to create this project, too?  If so, then you will like my special offer!  I will send a mini chalkboard stand (like the one that I used for my project) to the first five (5) people who purchase from me the Ghosts and Ghouls Chalk Transfer (or another one of your choice valued at $17.99+) and two (or more) jars of Chalkology Paste!  Thank you in advance for shopping with me at
And . . . while your shopping at my Chalk Couture site, you may want to take advantage of the September promotion.  With the purchase of five (5) Chalk Transfers (any size/price), Chalk Couture will include a FREE angled squeegee!
I don't remember if I've mentioned it before, but Chalk Couture is a new company that opened for business in October 2016, but their official launch was July 2017.  I love the kickstarter video, which you can see HERE.  There are so many gorgeous design ideas in that video!  Their chalkboards are, indeed, a quality that you aren't likely to find anywhere else and the framed chalkboards are simply stunning!  Having said that, one of the things that I love about the products is that the Chalk Transfers and Chalkology Paste can be used on a variety of surfaces . . . walls, mirrors, glass, canvas, fabric, wood, etc.--even inexpensive chalkboards that aren't even actual chalkboards! 
If I can answer any questions or offer any assistance, feel free to email me at randari at Hotmail dot com.

I cannot wait to create projects with those adorable mittens and snowflakes!  There are so many from which to choose, and won't they be perfect sprinkled with glitter!?!?
