Down on the Farm Card - Echo Park Paper

Hello there!  Tya here - and I am up on the blog today sharing a handmade card using the super cute "Down on the Farm "collection! What a fun bunch of products to work with! I have a farmhouse theme decor in my home and was really excited to get to this play with this collection because it totally speaks to me!

 I started with a solid red from the 6x6 paper pad. I then trimmed down a piece of the cute farm truck paper from the 6x6 paper pad as well. From there I took the yellow plaid 4x4 card from the  4x4 journaling card paper and placed that down. From there I added cut out the cute letter board card from the  3x4  journaling cards. I added that on top of the yellow plaid. Now the fun part - the decorating!

I loved this cute tag from the Frames and Tags Ephemera. I tied a bow from jute and added it with a glue dot to the top of the tag. I also added a blue button tied with some twine.

 I loved this cute farmhouse from the Element Stickers and added it to the card with a foam dot. I also trimmed a section of the chicken border sticker, which is also on the Element Stickers and placed in along the bottom edge of the card.

 I found the red plaid label in the Frames and Tags Ephemera and place the Farm Living piece on top of the label with foam tape. The label is from the Ephemera. Another blue button tied with twine was placed on the bottom corner. I tucked a cute farm doggie sticker behind the Farm Living piece. He was too cute not to add. :) 

I had so much fun creating this cute card - if any of you are farm lovers like me, you will need to grab this collection and make some cards as well. It has so many fun elements - I can't wait to make more!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Happy Crafting!

Home Banner - Our House Collection by Carta Bella

Hello there! Tya here up on the blog today! I am so happy to be sharing my project with you all - I made this fun home decor item using the lovely "Our House" collection by Carta Bella. I have this frame that I like to decorate with different themes and display it on a table in my living room. I knew when I saw this collection I wanted to make another banner to display.

I used some kraft cardstock as the bases for the banners and then added a few different pattern papers from the collection. I turned to my trusty Silhouette and cut out letters from Ebony Black Linen cardstock and some ovals from Natural White cardstock. I then decorated each letter with the stickers and  Ephemera from the collection. Here are close-ups of each of the letters:

I love the florals and butterflies in the collection and so this letter is decorated with a few of those stickers.

 How cute is that kitty cat sticker? I layered the hello sticker on top of one of the Ephemera pieces. I also added a few heart stickers and Ephemera banners to this banner piece.
 I fell in love with the Home Sweet Home sticker and used this on the right side of the letter. The collection also has some really cute houses on the sticker sheet so they were added to the bottom left side.
My kitchen is the center of my home and this letter was a tribute to that. I loved all the different little sub-themes in the collection and the bowls and utensil stickers were just too cute not to use. 
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to run out and grab this collection and use it to make your own home decor. This Our House Collection is perfect for so many great projects. Have a great day and Happy Crafting!
