Easter Sale

Jesus is the Reason for the Season!  No, I’m not talking about Christmas, I’m talking about Easter!  While Easter Bunnies and egg hunts and fancy Easter outfits are a fun part of the holiday, we like to remind ourselves of the real meaning behind Easter.  And, of course, we’ve got bling for that!

Many of our cross and Christian themed iron on transfers are on sale until Easter.  Check out the sale and pick out some cute bling to wear to all those Easter egg hunts!


Here’s a great tip for aligning individual iron on letter transfers (or any transfers that you want lined up evenly).  Simply trim and peel off the back of the individual transfers and stick them on a ruler to align the letters.  Place the ruler with the transfers on your garment and then remove the ruler before ironing.  Voila!  So easy!


And a big congratulations to M. Wade for winning our Old Ragged Cross wall hanging.  She said it will hang in her husband’s home office (he’s a minister — how perfect!).  Thanks to everyone who entered and shared your favorite hymns.  More giveaways coming soon!

GIVEAWAY and New Fabrics

Spring is here and we’ve got new fabrics in the studio to celebrate!  If you’re ready to embrace the bright colors of Spring then these are just the fabrics for you.  Our Sunrise Pink 3, Sky Blue Plaid, and Jelly Bean Plaid homespun fabrics mix and match well with the other colors in our Bright Homespun collection.  These three new fabrics will be on sale for only $4.45 per yard through the end of March.

And good news for all the fans of our Red & Tea Dye Ticking homespun fabric – it’s finally back in stock!  This popular fabric will also be on sale for $4.45/yd through the end of March.

Our Rainbow Rhinestud Alphabet Letters will are still on sale too.  These bright letters are so colorful and shiny they transform anything from boring to fabulous!  We just snazzed up this toy box ottoman over the weekend.  Each side has a different word — laugh, read, play, and fancy.  You could also put your child’s name or your family’s last name on a fabric storage ottoman like this to personalize it.

Hm…..Bright Homespun fabrics and Rainbow Rhinestud letters….what would happen if we combined the two???  We’d get this sweet DREAM pillow!  If you like it, then it could be yours!  We’re giving away this pillow to one blog reader.  To enter to win, simply leave a comment on this post.  Any comment will work!  Entries will be accepted through Monday, March 19th and the winner will be announced on next Tuesday’s blog post.

Teacher Bling Sale

Wow, can you believe Spring is right around the corner?  Spring means more daylight hours, Easter, outdoor sports, Spring Break, Prom, Mother’s Day, and the end of the school year.  What’s not to love?

Have you thought about what to get that special teacher as an end-of-the-year present?  Teachers love bling and we’ve got several really cute teacher/educator designs.  Iron them on a t-shirt or a tote bag for a unique and practical teacher gift.

If none of these teacher designs appeal to you, you could use our new rainbow iron on rhinestud letters to create a special personalized gift with your child’s teacher’s name on it.  You could even make a colorful wall hanging for her classroom.


Or maybe you ARE a teacher and you dread the weeks of standardized testing at the end of the school year.  Jazz up those boring tests for yourself and your students with our ROCK THE TEST iron on transfer.  This ROCK THE TEST iron on transfer is 50% off until March 14th.  Get yours today and motivate your students to do their best with a little bling!

All of our teacher/education iron on transfers are on sale through March 14th.  You’ve got plenty of time to make special gifts for all the educators in your life!

GIVEAWAY — New Rainbow Rhinestud Letters

We are sooooo excited about the new iron on rhinestud transfer rainbow letters in our studio!  These stylish lowercase alphabet letters are the perfect way to personalize just about any fabric surface.  You can use these funky letters alone or combine letters to make colorful words.

Many of the letters are available in two colors to help you get just the right look.  Unlike many of our iron on transfers, these letters are made with shiny multifaceted rhineSTUDS instead of rhinestones.  Rhinestuds really allow the vibrant colors to pop!  These transfers are applied the same way rhinestone transfers are — with a heat press or household iron.

There are so many possibilities with these rhinestud letters!  Names, initials, mascots, job words, fancy or meaningful words — you can even pair them with our rhinestone transfers to create a truly unique design like this LOVE BRONCOS shirt!  Stand out in the stands by using these letters to spell your school’s name!  Or how about a shirt for a librarian that says READ?  Or a shirt for a dental hygienist that says SMILE?  Or a cute little doggy shirt with your dog’s name or initial on it?  Maybe a decorative kitchen towel with a newlywed couple’s initials on it?  There are SO many fun possibilities!

Are you excited about these rainbow letters yet??

We want to give away an entire word to one lucky blog reader!  Leave a comment telling me what word or initial YOU would spell using our new rainbow rhinestud iron on transfers and you could win that entire word (12 letter maximum).  Comment entries will be accepted through Tuesday, February 28th at which time a winner will be randomly selected.

Good luck!  I’m excited to hear what fun words you come up with!

Valentine’s Day Fun!

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!  We’ve put together some fun projects to help you decorate for that special day.  And to help you get started on these projects, we are having a Sweetheart Sale — everything Valentines-y is 30% off through February 14th.


Our first Valentine’s project idea is a Valentine’s Card Box made from an empty tissue box.  Your daughter will love collecting Valentine’s cards in this fancy personalized box this Valentine’s Day.  And once the cards have all been read she can use this box to decorate her room or to hold special “treasures.”  You can find simple instructions for making this special bling box on the project page.


Another option for collecting Valentine’s cards is this chic Valentine’s Bag that hangs over the back of a chair.  If your child doesn’t have much desk space, then this might be just what she needs this Valentine’s Day!  This super simple project was created using two placemats, some ribbon, and a dowel rod — and then embellished with Jubilee Rhinestones, of course!  More photos and instructions for this fantastic blingy bag are included on the project page.


Our third Valentine’s project is for the grown-ups!  Decorate your office or your home with this soft shabby “rags-n-rhinestones” tissue box cover.  We used soft pink Jubilee Homespun fabrics but you could use hot pink or red or a combination of reds and pinks to design the perfect Valentine’s tissue box cover for your space.  And then, of course, you can choose from our many hearts and Valentines-y iron on rhinestone transfers to embellish your tissue box cover.  These little box covers are simple to make — easy enough that you could make one for every holiday!  Or, with our many homespun fabric options, you are sure to find something that would work in your home or office year-round.  What a great way to spruce up ordinary tissue boxes!  See more photos and detailed instructions on the project page.

Take advantage of our Sweetheart Sale prices to customize these projects to your own tastes!  And send us photos of your finished products so we can show off YOUR work on the blog!

Today (January 28th) is the last day to enter the giveaway for the Bright Ragged Homespun Quilt KIT.  If you haven’t entered, leave a comment on the Quilt Kit GIVEAWAY post before midnight tonight!

Sparkly Christmas Boxes

One more day to enter to win the Celebrate Jesus placemat!  Comment entries will be accepted on the Wishing You Hope post all day Saturday and the winner will be notified on Sunday, December 4th.

Still searching for inspiration for your holiday decor this year?  I’m absolutely loving these black bling boxes that a girl in our studio put together.  She simply wrapped some boxes in sparkly felt and ironed on the rhinestone transfer.  These are great with our Christmas iron on transfers but could be used with any Jubilee Rhinestones design any time of year!  The Merry Christmas box gets a little extra pizazz from the zebra print ribbon trim.  Simple – fun – classy – fantastic!
