Star Ornament

I'm in love, love, love with paper medallions and flowers. I made these sweet flowers for a swap at Club CK awhile back.
I figured it must be time to try a holiday medallion. This was so easy to make. (Can you tell I like easy projects?) The star is a chipboard covered in scrapbook paper. I lightly sanded the edges for the vintage/distressed look and added distress ink. The medallion is made from copied sheet music. I made the musical note from glitter sticks (pipe cleaners). The "Dear Santa" chipboard is from K&Company.

I am sharing this ornament with Under The Table and Dreaming with Stephanie Lynn. However, this single star may end up a banner in the near future. It's just too cute to be all alone.

As always, check the Link Party tab to see who I link up with. There are tons of great ideas on the link parties.

House Shaped Frames

Oh what fun!

I found these frames at The Dollar Tree! They were already painted, all I had to do was embellish. Talk about easy peasy. For the red frame I hand ruffled the ribbon and glued it on. The chipboard is glued onto a black felt rosette that I made.

The black from has a sweet ribbon tied around it. I learned how to tie the perfect bow on YouTube! Check it out here. Instead of using this one as a picture frame, I thought it would be cute to add scrapbook paper and a cute little saying. Again, I used paper from My Minds Eye and the acetate "Oh What Fun!" is from K&Company. The flowers were hand rolled using felt and fleece.

Heavenly Peace Wooden Plaque

Here is another plaque I made. I love doing these little plaques. They are so easy and cute. I use a small plaque from Michael's or Hobby Lobby. I paint, distress, add some Ralph Lauren Glaze, then add my papers. This time I used glitter paper from My Minds Eye and an acetate print from K&Company. I also did a rosette ribbon flower. I love it. If you don't have time to make your own, I have one for sale in my Etsy shop. TFL! I'm linking up w/ The Shabby Nest and the following blogs:

Give Thanks Wall Decor

I made this simple wooden wall hanging or doorknob hanger over the weekend. It's so simple, wooden square covered in Modge Podge and My Minds Eye scrapbook paper. I then used my Cricut Expression to cut the "Give Thanks" phrase and bird with swirl. You could easily make your own or check my Etsy shop for this one.
