Home is where the heart is...
I just love the new Papertrey Ink set that Nichole and Melissa colaborated on. I love Melissa's warm, homey style and I just know that any stamp set she dreams up in that genius little brain of hers will be gorgeous.
And this set does not disappoint. It is full of wonderful images and the coordinating dies are so sweet. And then there are the sentiments....sweet, kind words in a beautiful font combination. What's not to love??
I created a photo wreath using this new set and the coordinating dies.
I printed my photos very small and diecut them using the new house die. I made sure to choose photos that would work well with the heart cut-out. If you want to try this yourself, I would suggest printing them on plain paper first, just to get a feel for the size and positioning of the die. Once you've got it down you can print them onto your photo paper.
I adhered them to a tag made from the Fillable Frame #9 die. The background is stamped with the new Background Basics: Sheet Music stamp (LOVE!).
I tied them to the wreath with some baker's twine and embellished the wreath with some red flowers.
Hanging in the inside is a sentiment from the set stamped onto patterned paper and mounted to metal plate from Fancy Pants.
I combined the house image with the branches from Out on a Limb and the little birds from Merry Little Christmas. One other thing to note is the diecut mat...I used the Fillable Frames #10 die to cut through a piece of corrugated cardboard and brushed a little cream paint on it. I love the way it looks and you just might see it popping up on a few more projects!
