Wedding Card

One of my favorite new DCWV Stacks, is the Happy Day Stack. Every page is incredible. I love the wood prints, the gold accents and the tags and sayings.

It was perfect for a wedding card I needed to make!

I loved the page of cute little frames. So I cut a couple out, and crafted a tux and wedding dress in each of them. I used a black woven and a white glitter sheet from the Jet Black Stack for those.

Of course I had to add some fun Blue Moon Beads! I used a gold flower charm and a couple teardrop gold shimmer beads.
Threw on some large gold sequins and some gold rhinestones for some shine.

On the inside, I cut out a portion of this amazing doily page! Stamped 'congrats' on the side and messed it a bit with some inked edges. This piece is perfect, as I plan to write the sentiment in the large doily area.

I hope you enjoyed this project and are inspired to create your own!

Music Is Life Accessory Hanger

Hello everyone.

I fell in love with the Project Paper sent to me by DCWV! I love how thick and durable it is, and they offer a great amount of paper on each roll. The paper is offered in so many fun prints, and one of the prints sent to me was Music Notes

My niece is very into music and is learning to play the guitar. She is still loving Zebra black and white print with neon pink accents. So I decided to combine her love of music, with her favorite colors with this project. But I wanted to make her something a bit more sophisticated since she just turned 14. I decided to create an accessory hanger for her. I make her jewelry for every Birthday, Christmas or whenever she asks, so I made sure there were enough nails on this board to hold all of her jewelry.

The Project Paper adhered quickly and perfectly to the painted wood board with some Matte Paper Mod Podge.

I made some paper flowers out of some bright, amazing sheets from the Jet Black Stack and the Ocean Breeze Stack. I added BMB Rhinestone Skulls, Neon Pink Beads and an adorable Metal Bow Bead.

The variety of Blue Moon Beads I had on hand, coordinated with my project perfectly!

I secured a BMB Rhinestone on the head of each nail hanger. Adds the perfect amount of sparkle! 

I used some DCWV Chipboard Letters to add 'Music Is Life' to the board.
I used the polka dot stencil from the DCWV DIY Stencil Project Stack with some  Tim Holtz Distress Inks to add some color and detail. I also used a heart stencil around the board.

If you want to get your hands on some of this incredible Project Paper, or any other amazing new DCWV products, head over to Joann's!

Let's Get Lost Frame

Let's Get Lost Frame

I was spoiled this month with a bunch of amazing, adorable and creative new DCWV products. 

One of their new products is the Project Paper. This stuff is great! It comes rolled up like wrapping paper, but is thick and sturdy enough to use on home decor projects, or anything else you can think up!
For my Let's Get Lost Frame, I used the DCWV World Map Project Paper.

I made a simple, square frame and painted it black.

I had recently took a Lettering Class here in my hometown, and wanted to add a unique touch to this project. On a piece of vellum I hand-lettered Let's Get Lost.
I attached the vellum to the Map with some pins in each corner.

*if you live in Southern California and want to attend a Lettering Class, please contact Letter Sparrow.

I hope you enjoyed this, and are inspired to create something amazing!
