Mr. Fix-it

Mr. Fix-it Nail Apron

One Of GinaK Designs newest stamp releases is a set called "King of the Grill" by Rupa Shevde. It has the greatest images! I especially love the hammer and nails! I knew I wanted to make some sort of tool belt to hold the hammer and nails, but after seeing Julie Buehler's grill apron, it gave me inspiration to make a nail apron! Check it out! Thanks Julie! Pretty simple assembly...once I cut the main piece for the apron itself! I built the apron as I went along. The pockets and hammer strap are pieces of scrap more mustard cardstock cut to fit the need! Black journaling marker for the faux stitching, embossing Mr. Fix-it add great detail to the overall card design. The "other" tools sticking out of the right pocket are the grill accessories from the set! The tools brads (now available at GinaK Designs) are just the finishing touch to the tool time look! See the rule in the left pocket? A piece of scrap ribbon from my local material store! Do you have a tool time man in your life? Check out this fabulous set, what a great way to express Thank-you, Happy Birthday or Happy Father's Day! I'll have more tonight! Stay tuned...until then,

HUGS,
