Cardz TV Anything Goes Challenge #10 - "Home" Home Decor


I am playing along with Cardz TV Anything Goes Challenge #10 and today my project I created is a home decor project I have wanted to do since we bought our house last year. I found this idea all over pinterest and just took all of the ideas and made it into my own!

I started by taking 4 wine bottles and removing the labels and washing/drying them. Then I spray painted them black with Krylon gloss spray paint. Once they dried, I decorated them with twine and other scrapbook supplies I had on hand. I got the wooden letters from Hobby Lobby and spelled out home and hot glued them on and decorated them with pearl scrapbook embellishments. I layered a bunch of flowers together to create the "O" for home. The hardest part was hot gluing the twine all the way around constantly but once it was done, I was very pleased! This sits on my entryway table when you first walk into my house.

Hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!

Birthday Cut It Up Challenge #128 - One Step At a Time

Hi all!

Today is my husband's birthday so I made him a birthday card using the Simply Charmed cartridge. Both the balloons and cake are from that cartridge. I am playing along with Cut it Up challenge #128 - One Step at a time challenge which is to make a step card! My husband was impressed with the step card style. Hope you enjoy!

Falling For You Paper Play Sketch 49 Challenge

Hello out there!

It has been many years since I've been active on here (4) but now things are more settled in my life and I am back and in the crafting mood again and in our first house which I just realized it's been almost a year that we've been here! Three months away...crazy how time flies.

I am about to go back to school on Monday from summer break (kids come back Thursday but teachers on Monday) but I'm really hoping to be able to craft every now and then. If not during the week, then maybe on the weekends. We'll see how it goes and how busy I am this school year!

So my first papercraft creation in a very long time is a card. I just love making cards and I am using PaperPlay Sketches Sketch 49 to create my card. Since I'm going back to school, my summer is pretty much over and I'm looking onwards to the fall season and decided to make a fall themed card.

I used Create a Critter 2 cartridge to make my fall tree and the leaves are from Create a Critter cartridge. I embossed the white paper behind the tree with a leaves folder for my cuttlebug and inked over it in brown ink. I also embossed the tree with a tree bark folder. The papers are just from a Fall and Halloween stack I got from Hobby Lobby a long time ago. The brown paper also has wood grain of a tree on it. I have so much paper and embellishments that I really need to make sure I use before I go on a craft shopping spree! It's kind of ridiculous!

So there's my card and I hope you enjoy it!

Thanks for stopping by!
