First off- aren't our new signatures that Jana made so super cute?! Gosh I love 'em!
I've been trying to make a few "pretties" for our house for V-Day coming up.
I used my Silhouette machine to cut out these hearts in different sizes, and then embellished them. I added them to strips of tulle & ribbon to make a pretty decoration for our bedroom door.
I also added a few Dollar Tree glittery snowflake ornaments from Christmas time.
(All made from the Object of my Affection kit!)
I also bought one of those cute little mailboxes from the Target Dollar Spot and embellished it. I know, it's been done a million times- it still doesn't mean that they aren't cute! ;)
I layered a Pink Paislee press-on rub-on on top of one of the little round journaling spots in the kit. I love how you can see the design on the journaling spot come through the sheer design of the rub on.
One final thing: I wanted to share with y'all my ribbon & trim storage!
It's not anything spectacular AT ALL, but it works for me.
I mounted a tiny curtain rod onto tiny brackets onto the wall, added clips, and then keep all my ribbon sorted by color in baggies, attached to each clip.
One thing you need to note: I keep my scrap stash pretty cleaned out. I like to sort through & purge sometimes as frequently as once a month. I try to only keep around the stuff that I really, really like. Hence- not a ton of ribbon.
I keep rolls of other stuff on the rod too. Also, random little crafts that my kids make may or may not get clipped up there. That's just how we roll. ;)
(By the way, my kids told me that little paper doll is a mommy. Wanna guess why? LOL)
Random scraps of ribbon go in this big jar. Also known as me being too lazy to mess with them.
Make sure to check out the Seaside Cottage slide show below! Noel only has a couple of these kits left!
