Hanging Wall Decor

I have been working on getting some things together to hang on my hallway wall.
You've seen bits and pieces on my previous posts.  I finally have the finished product!


I first taped together some packing paper to make a layout for hanging and then
I laid all my items out where I wanted them.


Then I traced around each item and marked where I needed to place a nail.


I taped the paper to the wall and place my nails in the spots that were marked.


I stopped about halfway through and made sure the layout was still looking good.


Several of these items are things that I have repurposed and the rest I picked
up at Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and Home Goods.  I made my first trip to Home Goods
last week and I have to say that I will be going back!

Sympathy Card


I made this sympathy card recently.  
I used the scroll tree design for this card.  The Silhouette had a hard time cutting some 
of the curves on this tree.  I deleted those points on the design and was able to cut it 
without any problems.

Random Wall Decor

I have been working on decorating my hallway wall over the last month or so.
Here are my finishing touches.


This a $1 frame I picked up from Michaels a while back.
I painted it grey and added a vinyl design (corner flourish) using my Silhouette Cameo.
Like my scroll tree, the silhouette had a hard time cutting some of the
curves on this design.  I just sliced them off with an exacto knife and no one will
know the difference.  Unless they read my blog..... :)

I used to create the places we have lived design.
It is a SUPER easy website to use.  You just type in the words you want and
it allows you to play with the text and background colors as well as layout.


The back broke on this frame a while back, but I couldn't let it go.
This was nothing a little burlap and rosette couldn't fix!


I needed something to frame in my gigantic, not so pretty thermostat.
Pier One had a frame sale this weekend so I couldn't resist buying this one!

Bridal Shower Card

Here is a card I made for a friend's Bridal Shower.
It was my first time to try out sketch pens for the Silhouette, it was a lot easier than I expected!
I used this wedding dress card design for this card.
