Red Lead Projects

Sorry, I haven't posted in awhile, I've been busy and haven't had time to create anything lately. I did want to share with you some projects I made a couple months ago using Red Lead stamps.
Red Lead sells some unique products, including these fun stamps. Here's some close ups of the stamps and the products I used for each project.
The tags I used above came from the Target $ bin section.
The dresses below remind me of bridesmaid dresses, but I think they would be cute on a tag or card too!
Using 6"x6" paper pads work great for small projects, since the scale of the prints are smaller.
And the 6"x6" pads take up less room, so needless to say, I love collecting them. :-)
The other benefit of using these pads, is that all the different papers in the pad coordinate, making it much quicker to create your project. 
And for the last project, I made a pin cushion dress form. It's about 6" tall and 2" wide.
The dress form started like this...
I first copied my metro issue paper onto fabric.  Next I wrapped the fabric around some stuffing and glued it to the back of the dress form. 
Then I just added some chains and ribbon.

Also, Happy Birthday to my daughter, Rachel and son, Christopher!
They celebrate their birthdays only one week apart.
So hard to believe how time proud of both of them!

And finally, I have to share this great photo of my daughter during her dance performance this weekend. She does both modern dance and ballet and has such grace and composure!
Have a great week everyone!


  1. The Red Lead stamp dresses are adorably outfitted…..really cute!! Good tip using the 6"x6" pads. I have a hard time finding things from the $l.00 bins at Target. Tags are great. Guess I have to go more often. Your dress form is fantastic - loved the rhinestone chain on it. Happy Birthday Chris and Rachel!! You guys are growing up fast. Beautiful form Rachel….what can't you do!!

  2. Connie - your cupcake & dress tags are so adorable. Happy Birthday, Chris and Rachel!!! Beautiful photo of Rachel leaping in the air - my goodness, that is impressive!
