Hello crafty hoppers!
Are you enjoying the hop so far? I hope so...there's a lot of fabulously creative ladies in this group, and I love a reason to visit each of their blogs all in the same day. My "ideas" folder is overflowing! If you arrived here from an email, and not from the blog hop path, you're probably wondering what I'm talking about. This weekend is the first Blog Hop for the VC Rocks group's 2012 Season. This is an amazing group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators who get together online and host all sorts of challenges, blog hops, and lively conversations in an effort to celebrate the release of the new Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog. It's really alot of fun to see what the ladies have to post, so please, check out the hop.

Or you can just continue from me, and it will eventually loop you back around.
So....here we go!
Today's share is a set of coasters I made using the Beau Chateau DSP, which of course will be retiring in just 13 short days. This was one of my favorite paper packs of this year's catalog, and I will be sad to see it go.
To turn these tiles into coasters, I used a Mod Podge-like glue to adhere the DSP to the top of the coaster. Then I applied 3 more thin coats of the glue on top of the paper, drying in between each coat with my heat tool. This not only adheres the paper to the coaster and gives it a glossy look, but it waterproofs it from my sweaty ice-cold sweet tea glass! To give the coasters a more finished look, I used my Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker to color the edges of the coasters so they wouldn't be such a stark white. Finally, I applied cork feet to the bottom to make them more stable, and more end-table friendly.
I hope you like today's project...and at the end of the weekend, I will draw a name from all of my current subscribers/follwers, and the lucky winner will receive a set of these coasters and a few other goodies as blog candy! So, if you like what you see, please be sure to sign up as a follower!
Ok...off you go to see what Tania has in store for you over at Something to Scrap About.
