Denim, Ombre, 80’s Revival {It’s DIY Time}


Ohhhh…the Denim Vest. Icon of the 80’s. Painful Middle School Flashbacks. All that aside, I have to say – I’m ready to rock it, I’m ready to bring it back and make it a personal Spring/Summer Staple! Paired with a flowy maxi skirt and a luxe pair of flats, this vest will be almost covetable. I’ve been on the hunt for a perfect little (affordable) Denim Vest for several weeks now, and nothing popped up. So, I thought – why not make my own? I love DIY projects, and this seemed to be the perfect opportunity. A quick trip to Zara for a simple denim jacket (on sale – score!), and the craft store for some fun pastel studs (they’re officially called “Brads” – how odd!) and a serious “Hole Poker” = Voila –  Denim Vest Nirvana! I hope you’re feeling at least a little inspired…what’s on your Spring DIY agenda??

      Hi Okie,I notice you have the Kodak prtnier. I have the 5500 and am on my third replacement due to color issues. It printed fine for the first few months then I had to replace the cartridge and bam issues started. After 2 printheads later, Kodak sent me two replacement prtniers because the colors were just off. Red always seems like orange. What is your opinion of this prtnier? Have you had any issues with print quality? Curious if you like it or not and if you would buy another.Thanks,Jackie Cthescrappinstamper@yahoo.com
