Home Decor for Sweet Sassy Diva

Good Morning Friends!!! Today I have for you a home decor project for my Sweet Sassy Diva DT. I had fun doing this (it was a first)! I had to use a few things for this project/challenge to me!

1. Use Felt
2. Use Green
3. Use embossing
4. Use a Cricut Cut

Materials used:

Frame from Joanns

K&Company Yuletide Christmas Collection

Ribbon from Michaels

Flowers from my BFF last year :)

Felt flower SEI 

Zip Dry Glue paper

PYM 2 Acrylic Protective Sealant

Xacto Blade

Gloss Glue

Winter Frolic Cartridge

Cricut Expression

Cricut Cuttlebug for Happy Holidays sign

Acrylic Paint for around frame

Apply glue to frame and carefully put paper, let dry and then use Xacto blade to cut paper excess.

Paint around frame. I used my finger... why? well it gives me a bit more control as to how much paint I want on the paper edges... I like the distressed look.

Flowers were adhered with glue dots. I used the gloss glue on the sign, on the red part only. I also embossed the sign.

Because I don't have Modge Podge, I used the acrylic protectant on the frame! It dries A LOT faster! :)

For this project I had to:

Use green: CHECK!

Use felt: CHECK!

Cricut cut: CHECK!

Emboss: CHECK!

This is my very first decorated frame!

I need to practice on my pictures!!!

Thank you for visiting!

This is just awesome Abby!! I have a frame that I'm planning on doing, but haven't started yet. Wasn't sure where to start. I guess, just jump in feet first! :)
