• A Makers Studio’s New & Improved Website

    Are you a Creative? Maybe you're a DIYer who loves a new craft project and making old things new again. Do you own a craft business creating beautiful products for your customers? Are you a Blogger focusing on crafts and creative ideas? If yes, then YOU are the person I'm talking to. You need to hear about the new and improved A Makers' Studio website.

    A Makers Studio

    I love when a company listens to its affiliates and its customers. A Makers Studio has done just that. They have improved not only their products (which are amazing), but they have changed their process and improved their website to make ordering easier. Here's a biggie… A Makers Studio is no longer a direct sales company, but is an affiliate program. And it is one of the best affiliate programs around today! I know of no other affiliate program around that starts at 20% commission with the opportunity to earn more than that.

    At the end of this post I have a GIVEAWAY for you.

    New and Improved A Makers’ Studio Website

    This post contains links to products that I use and highly recommend. If you should order any product through this site, I may receive compensation, but you do not pay a penny more.

    Over the past several months, I’ve shared some projects I’ve made using products from A Maker’s Studio. I have never been disappointed with any of the products I've purchased from A Makers Studio. I also love that A Makers Studio is on a mission to help end human trafficking. You can learn more about his mission here.

    The first thing you may notice on the A Makers’ Studio home page is at the very top.

    Each section has a drop down menu, like this one for the paints.

    ChalkArt, Gel Art Ink, Rescue Restore Paint

    The drop down menu for the stencils/stamps divides them into categories for easy searching.

    As a Maker, I wake up every day with a purpose.  My creativity and passion to continue to build my own business while encouraging other women is my purpose. I love that AMS offers all of the support and tools needed to become a stronger creative while also encouraging me in my spiritual life as well.

    Why Did I Become A Maker?

    I love the product quality and variety of products that A Maker Studio offers, however, that isn't all that drew me to this company. The founder of AMS, Amy Howard, is a renowned furniture maker, painter, and interior decorator with over 30 years experience. Amy incorporates her Faith into this company and encourages us in our spiritual walks while also mentoring us in our businesses.

    One of A Makers Studio's goals is to help end human trafficking. AMS employs amazing women who have been rescued from the horrors of human trafficking. These women have been trained and are Artisan Candle Makers. They hand pour all of our Difference Makers Candles and are grateful for their freedom. A Makers Studio's values and mission are inline with my own values and beliefs. I would love to have you join our team. Feel free to message me on Facebook or contact me here on the website if I can answer any questions for you.

    Why did I choose A Makers Studio?

    A Makers Studio, AMS

    A Makers Studio products are phenomenal.  I love the quality and variety of products we carry at AMS; but even more important to me are the company's values and mission.  Making a difference in people’s lives and seeing their excitement when they not only create beautiful pieces, but also when we connect with one another makes my heart smile.

    God placed me in this company because He knew that not only was it a perfect fit for me creatively, but also spiritually. I love that we openly support and pray for one another. It’s refreshing that Amy, the owner, encourages us in our spiritual walks and pours into us mentoring us in our businesses as well.

    Help AMS End Human Trafficking

    One of A Makers Studio‘s goals is to help end human trafficking. Women rescued from the horrors of human trafficking are our Artisan Candle Makers. They hand pour all of the AMS Difference Makers Candles. They are so appreciative of their blessings and take pride in their work.

  • A Makers Studio Gel Art Ink

    Gel Art Ink

    A Makers Studio Gel Art Ink lays rich, permanent color on fabrics, apparel, upholstery and most soft surfaces. When paired with A Makers' Studio stencils, you can create your own wearable art or customize your decor with vibrant pops of color.

    To use, just squeeze a nickel-sized amount of Gel Art Ink onto a working surface and load onto your spreader. Apply ink evenly onto the stencil, remove any excess, and gently pull up your stencil. Allow your design to dry 3-4 hours. Set your design with heat by covering stenciled area with a soft cotton cloth and passing over it with a warm iron for several minutes.

    Be sure to wash your stencil with water because you don't want the ink drying in the mesh part of the stencil.

    You can also heat set using your heat press set on 250 degrees for about 30 seconds.

  • A Makers’ Studio is Changing Lives!

    Hey Friends! What if I told you there's a way to make beautiful signs, chalkboards, window designs, etc without the frustration of design software (Silhouette, Cricut, Sure Cuts a Lot), and without the need for weeding and transfer tape?   

    I have some amazing news! 

    All these products were made were made with NO cutting, weeding  or transfer tape! Now YOU can make signs without a fancy shmancy cutting machine!!

    I joined A Makers' Studio this month and have been amazed at their products.  I have done direct sales in the past and always said NEVER AGAIN!  Don't we usually wind up eating our words?  

    A Makers' Studio is a brand new direct sales company that launched October 2018. They sell paint, gel stain, ChalkArt paste, waxes, candles, stamps, REUSABLE MESH STENCILS and more!!! These stencils are basically like the stencils you used to cut and weed with your fancy machine; however, these are REUSABLE, don't require weeding, and have much more detail!  

    Here are a few answers to some Frequently Asked Questions.


    1) What is this ChalkArt stuff?  
    ChalkArt is a thick chalk-like material. It has a consistency similar to sour cream and dries hard to the touch in less than 5 minutes. This means you can rub your hand over your design and it's not going anywhere unless YOU want it to!  When you're ready to change out the design, just spray with water and wipe away the design. If you are using the ChalkArt on surfaces you want the design to be permanent on, just use a spray sealer.

    2) If I sign up as a Maker how much does it cost, what do I get?

    As of today, the starter kit is $99 plus shipping. 

    3) How do you clean the stencils? 
    Stencils clean up with just water.  You can also use a little soap and water to clean them. Wash, lay face down flat to dry, and then put it back on the backing sheet.

    4) Will the market get saturated with everyone having the same designs? 
    Everyone who makes signs and refinishes furniture are already using a lot of the same designs! The difference is what you do to make your finished products unique.  Mix and match designs to create something amazing.  There are so many options available.  

    5) Do you offer Training? 
    Yes! I offer one-on-one calls, as well as Team trainings.  A Makers Studio and our Team Leaders also offer valuable in depth trainings.

    I hope this answers a few of your questions. Please feel free to email or message me if you would like more info.  If you would like to join our team of highly motivated Makers, head over to www.amakersstudio.com and click the “BECOME A MAKER” button.  

    Happy Creating!

  • New Adventures

    I'm beyond excited to announce one of my brand new adventures! You still have to wait a while to learn where the Air Force is moving us next ;-).

    I resigned from Chalk Couture and am now a Maker with A Makers Studio! This is a fairly new company that publicly launched in October 2018.

    Some of the products include paint, wax, gel stain, brushes, stamps, stencils, and chalk art! A Makers Studio has everything you need to rescue/restore or have a great time with your friends at a Gathering!

    I know that everything happens for a reason and firmly believe this is where I need to be at this season in our lives. I was excited to find out that A Maker's Studio is faith based, positive, and the goals are not only to share crafts, but to share life experiences and love.

    This company is making a difference. Our product line also includes candles. A Makers’ Studio employs human-trafficking survivors in making these artisanal candles. The more candles we sell, the more lives can be changed for the better. Proceeds from A Makers’ Studio sales benefit Palmer’s Home for Children and the Human Trafficking Institute.

    I will also begin offering regular gatherings for my crafty customers! These will be virtual, taught by me, and kits can be purchased directly from my website! If you would like to schedule an in-person class, let me know. I'd be glad to do that as well.

    I can't wait to share more with all of you! For now, head to my website and check it out at www.amakersstudio.com
