~A lil' Home Decor~

Hey friends :) Just a quick post today...I'm getting ready to have my
scrappy sale tomorrow
(if you live in Saskatoon and are interested in coming, send me an email and I'll give ya all the info!)....and my 'to do' list is getting longer and longer...sorting, pricing, packaging, cleaning....ahhh if only there were more hours in a day!

Anywho, I thought I would take a break from all the sale madness and share this lil project with y'all....

~Home is Where the Heart is~

It's the newest addtion to my scrappy room, and it was inspired by my shabby, vintage, oh-so-yummy bedding in my little creative room...

I used a lovely mixture of lace, punched paper, vintage buttons (from my MIL - Thank you, Linda :) , annnnnnnddddd this is the first project created with my Big Shot!!! I used the beautiful Spellbinders Grommet Tags Dies, and the coordinating Craft's Meow stamps (designed by Nina B.), Timeless Tags...Check out the tags and stamps and how they look so heavenly together...Love!

The wooden flourish was given to me by my sweet friend...(thank you Vicky!) which I covered with Distress Crackle Paint for an old, worn look... I stamped some angel wings onto a transparency sheet and outlined the image using Liquid Pearls...Once dry, I topped the wings off with a vintage button and some paper string...Yummo!

Here is a close-up of the stamp I used from the Timeless Tags set. I first cut the die shape from the Spellbinders Grommet Tags dies, and then I stamped the image using a soft taupe ink. I cut the sides a bit short, and I added a dash line to resemble stitching...

Don't ya just love layers upon layers of soft colors, hearts, glitter, buttons and paper...What more could a girl ask for?

I used Maya Road chipboard Hearts and Wings, which I painted in a creamy white. I distressed the edges by sanding, and added shimmery glitter to the pretty wings. Under the hearts, I cut another shape from the Spellbinders Grommet Tags dies, and then stamped the coordinating image from the Timeless Tags stamp ont my newly-cut shape...It never gets old...I just LOVE how quickly and easily I can whip things up with my new dies....

Coordinating dies+stamps = happy Ivana :)

Hope you all enjoy this lovely June day...It's raining here...I guess it's as good a day as any to be stuck inside sorting through scrappy goodies :)
I'll be back to show ya more projects once things calm down a bit around here...
