So much fun . . .

I had so much fun doing this home decor project . . .it's featured as my weekly challenge at Croppin' Paradise, and it is also my extra project for the Studio 101 Blog! I found this quote on a giant chalkboard in a scrap store in Twin Falls this summer . . . the quote spoke to me and wanted to be represented in my home! I had a giant shaped piece of chipboard that I knew would make the perfect home for the quote. I started with white paint, misted black cherry, silver, and clear to get the background. I then lettered the quote in with black marker. I added the felt flowers and sparkly bits of stickled flourishes. To finish it, I added the butterflies and the ribbon on which to hang the piece! I love it, and it is displayed proudly in my new scrap space!!

Croppin' Paradise Reveal

This month . . . one of our DT assignments was to create projects using the Nikki Sivils lines that were released this summer . . . I was lucky and got to create with one of the Christmas lines . . . they were sooo much fun! I created 6 different cards and had an absolute blast . . . the colors combo is so much fun and the embellishments are perfect. I made all these cards and I only had 3 sheets of paper and one sheet of stickers! Not much product . .. but look at all that I created!! I added some different ribbons . . . some bling . . . some stamps . . . and a sparkle here or there! It was a lot of fun!!

Sept. 19th Studio 101 Challenge

This week at Studio 101, we had a guest challenger: Lain Ehmann . . . she challenged us to use holiday stuff on a page (specifically Christmas & Halloween) on a layout that's NOT about a holiday! Here's my page about my brother's giant shoes . . . I tried to make it look like the snowman was talking!! It was definitely a giant step out of my box!! Have fun!
