Joy...Hope...Peace....Home Sweet Home!

Hello all!! This is Carissa from Loksi & Co.!! I am super excited about this project!!! I went to a Christmas Home Tour last year and got this idea from something I saw there!! I just knew this was perfect for a home decor item for this weeks challenge!!! Also, we were to use the color green, the Cuttlebug and felt. The Cuttlebug is on my Christmas wish list!! I was able to use the Cuttlebug at my local scrapbook store!! Yay!! This project was pretty fast and easy to assemble once you have all of your pieces together!! I love to make projects like this!! I also love to use 3D foam squares!!






Recipe:

3 - 6x6 Chipboard Square

Paper - BoBunny Winter Joy Collection

Ribbon

Felt flowers - BBD Supplies

Scrabble tiles

Glossy Accents

Chestnut Roan Colorbok ink chalk

Cuttlebug folder - Snowflake

Gypsy - Gypsy Font for the words

Christmas Cards cartridge - Corner scrolls

Words using the Gypsy...


The words were cut using Gypsy Font after they were welded together using a tutorial from Sheila at She's a Sassy Lady. I'm new to the Gypsy and I'm always looking for tutorials on how to use it!! Also, I used the shadow and blackout feature welded together to add dimension.



Challenge materials...

Green - The color green is on the corner scrolls and in the background of the paper.
Cuttlebug - I used the Cuttlebug folder on the lighter paper.
Felt - The purple and turquoise flowers are felt... I purchased these a couple of months ago to make headbands for my daughters... Worked perfectly for this project also!!!



Scrabble tiles...



The scrabble tiles were made ahead of time to allow time for drying... I used Glossy Accents to glue the paper onto the scrabble tile, cut the excess paper around and inked the edges. Then use a thin layer of Glossy Accents on top to make a pretty embellishment!!! Allow time to dry!!
