This is not just the name of a new company – it is a philosophy! Cindy Hutchinson describes herself as a grandma with two-toned hair and red fingernails who happens to live in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. She is the queen of flash and came out with an amazing product! Her enthusiasm just pulls you right in!
She has designed a series of stencils. The “holes” are placed perfectly so you can glue crystals in place and decorate anything you can get your hands on! The stencils can be used on paper, fabric, purses, shoes, and wood. She uses the new Professional Touch Crystal Applicator which heats the adhesive-backed crystal to just the right temperature so it will adhere to your finished project.
Cindy was kind enough to join us at the Checker Open House and brought some of her jeans that she has washed a hundred times. The crystal design looked brand new. I thought they might start falling off – or wearing off – when washed and worn a lot – not so. She made me into a true believer!
Every Girl Scout leader, grandmother, mother, 4-H leader, and teacher should be required to include this in their project schedule. Cindy says that many of the dance troupes that visit their area stop in and design their own T-Shirts to wear during the events. And, when you are done with your shirts, move on to your shoes and purse!
Scrapbookers can use it too. Personalized stationary would be great. You can do a design in a matter of minutes and since the holes in the stencils are equally spaced, you get perfect results every time! If you have any crystals left, you can glue them to ribbons and packages to make your gifts extra special! I’m hoping to entice my daughter into wrapping everything this Christmas – how could she resist when Cindy has made it so much fun?
Cindy uses the 3mm size the most but the 2mm and 4mm sizes will work in the stencils too! Check out all of the colors and sizes by going to “Crafts” and clicking on “crystals” at Checkerdist.com. They come in unlimited colors so let your creativity flow!
She showed us how you can take a heart from one stencil and a star from another to create your own unique design. The only problem you’ll have is picking out the stencils you want – I couldn’t just choose one! See our selection by typing in Southern Attitude for the vendor at Checkerdist.com.
This is a fun project for anyone that wants a make-it take-it project too. In fifteen minutes, you can finish a project – what’s not to love?
