Michael's Craft Haul - Mosaic Tea Tray and Envirotex Lite


Don't you love a craft haul?  Maybe you didn't even mean for it to be a haul, maybe you just stopped in at Michael's, Hobby Lobby, Jo Ann's, AC Moore, Archiver's (did I name all the major craft stores yet?) to just grab one thing and you ended up with a decent load?

Well this is what happened last week.  I was in Michael's to pick up some Envirotex Lite for this post: Using Envirotex Lite for the First Time, and ended up with all the products you see above.  Of course, as the Envirotex Lite is the most expensive, that's what I used my 40% coupon for.

But then I also ended up with some Inkadinkadoo clear stamps - the Autumn Greetings (25% off); a Martha Stewart Crafts clear stamp set - these cute birds (originally $12.99 but on clearance for some reason for $5.99); Martha Stewart Crafts Microbeads in Copper, Blue Topaz, Tourmaline, and Lapis Lazuli that were also all in clearance for $1.49 each; and these super cute cupcake cups by Paula Deen.

Then I got to thinkin, how many times do I come home with a craft haul only to add it to the crazy well organized stash and never get around to using it?  No more - this week my goal is to use each of these products and share some ideas with you!

You saw in that post about Envirotex Lite and the rather unfortunate ending.  Check how this beauty turned out!

I tried to catch the glossiness:



I think it came out perfect, what do you think?

  1. Very pretty! What is the material for the mosaic - paper?

    Jill,
    I used ceramic tiles from broken china, like plates and cups. The grout is white sanded grout that I mix myself.
