Welcome!


I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Kitchen Wall Hanging - Week #1 Challenge: Celebrate With a Flourish

Here is my first project in my Cartridge Challenge using Celebrate with a Flourish
Cartridges used in this project:
Celebrate with a Flourish for the Wine Bottle/glasses
Lacy Labels for the base shape
Calligraphy for the Gratitude Font

I recycled a large gift box for the chipboard base for the project. I cut it three times at height of 11 inches. Two cuts in the chipboard, and one in Black Glitter paper from DCWV. This size gave it a width of almost 13 inches, so I used my 12x24 mat and paper.

I then stapled a ribbon to the inside layer of chipboard. I glued all three pieces together and inked the edges.


I cut the Cement colored cardstock twice at 10.5 inches and 10.25 and then inked the edges and layered the pieces. I placed small black gems in the corners.


The wine bottle and glasses layers were cut at 8.5". I cut the base layer once and the bottle and glass layers two times each. I layered the pieces with foam tape between them to give added dimension.
The font was cut a 1.63" I love this calligraphy font, but those pieces are skinny and a little fragile.

I am really pleased with how this project turned out. I am looking forward to completing more projects in this challenge.
