Sign For Craftroom Door

You can click this picture to see it larger. I can't get Blogger to let me make the pictures any larger than this!

I made this sign today using, what else? Paper! I found a wooden sign which I bought after Christmas two years ago just to paint over. I has been sitting in my cabinet awaiting its destiny. Its day has come! I painted over the cheezy Christmas saying {I should mention... I got this at Dollar General after Christmas 90% off! It was $.35!} I took the cheezy raffia ribbon off.

Next, I cut a piece of paper to size by tracing the sign shape on the back of a piece of 12x12 paper. I then brushed ModPodge on the whole thing and stuck the paper on and pushed and smoothed to get all of the bubbles out. I then ModPodged over the paper too.

Next, I stamped the letters and cut them out. I found lots of chipboard in my stash, so I painted those up {the butterfly and red glitter heart, the L and the E}. I then arranged my sign as I liked it and glued everything down using Aileen's Tacky Glue. I love the way it turned out and can't wait to get it up on my door. {It still needs to dry a bit!}

Now for a few cards I made in my happy place. :-)

The Pajama Party (be sure to check it out!) had a bit of a theme going last Wednesday, and that theme was quilling. I bought the stuff to quill about 10 years ago and never did it. I don't know why. I wanted to, but I never did. So with the PJ Party as inspiration, I gave it a try. It isn't my fav thing to do, but maybe with some practice, my quilled shapes will get more even. Anyway, here's what I made.

This is a card I made for my friend's birthday. I have to get it in the mail tomorrow so she gets it this week!
