Dream home decor project using the Flower Shoppe and Sopisticated cartridges.

Hello, friends!

Today I have a home decor project that you can hang on your wall or just simply let it prop up on it little leg. I bought it in the clearance section at Hobby Lobby and just altered it using modge podge, the Teresa Collins Sophisticated cartridge, and the Flower Shoppe cartridge. It was super simple and it did not take that long. LOVE IT!

I used Girl's Paperie paper and Close To My Heart cardstock.
I cut the rose out at 3" and the 2 daisies out at 2 1/2" using the Flower Shoppe cartridge. 'Dream' is cut out using Sophisticated at 2 1/2".
When making the flowers I used a hot glue gun for assembly. I highly recommend investing in one if you buy this cartridge!
Now I know that you guys want me to do a video on how to make these flowers. I have not fully decided on if I will do that or not. Most likely I will do a photo step by step though. Joy will most likely do a video and she is way better at doing those sorts of things! She makes beautiful flowers as well!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Peace, Love, and Crafts!

The Dream tile is great, a wonderful addition to a young person's room for inspiration, and encouragement. Thank you for sharing the idea with us. Another for my project file.

Auntie Em said...

Your flowers are sooo awesome! I find I often prefer the step by step photos so I don't have to stop the video to catch up every time but either way works.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Melanie,
How nice to get answer to "how to leave a comment."
Your designs are great and easy to recreate. I agree that the new colors of inks are beautiful especially Pacificia, and Twilight.
Keep up the great work.
