Using DSP in Home Decor Projects

Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper isn't just for card making and scrapbooking. Put it to use in your home decor projects.

Here is my latest home decor project. I had a bare wall in my new home and just couldn't find something I loved for this space. So after 18 months of looking at this bare wall, I started thinking what can I make to fill that space until I find something that really speaks to me, something more permanent. This is what I came up with. I adhered 6 sheets of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to 12" x 12" stretched canvases. I love how they turned out, and I had so much fun making them. I found a new way to use some of my Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper for an easy to make home decor project that costs just a few dollars. Now, I have something pretty to look at instead of a bare wall, and am getting lots of compliments on it too. And best of all, it's such an inexpensive project that I can change it out at any time without feeling guilty. I can change it out to coordinate with the seasons, holidays, or new accent pillows if I choose. And when I find something more permanent for this wall, I will likely find a new place for this wall collection.

I used the same process for this project that I did for my DIY Designer Series Paper Coasters. You can see that video demonstration with this link: https://bit.ly/2SXTkF5

Harvest Hellos, Apple Builder Punch, and Come to Gather Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

This card created by my friend and Stampin' Up! demonstrator Tamra Davis was the inspiration for my #applepicking 2-page scrapbook layout. I never would have thought to put Real Red and Pretty Peacock together, but I love it! It's fresh and fun - an unexpected surprise! I hope you like it as much as I do!

Just Breathe

Like many people, I've spent my life taking care of others, being there for others, giving to others. While all that is good and has brought me many blessings and great joy, it has also caused me to at times (ok, many times) neglect myself. So, now in my 50's, I've been working on self-care, and yes, it has been tough. I'm getting better at it, though. I'm paying more attention to my physical and mental health. I'm drinking more water, spending time in quiet prayer each day, getting more sleep (but still not enough). I've taken up running and really am starting to enjoy it. I sometimes skip some at-home-work to enjoy a glass of wine, a bowl of popcorn, and a movie or favorite show. I've been blasting music in my car going to and from work. (I was always telling my girls to turn the radio down in the car. What was I thinking???) I give myself permission to take a walk or ride my bike or just sit on the patio with my feet up BEFORE I mow the lawn. I might treat myself to a bubble bath and put my pj's on by 7pm. I hope that in doing all these things and many more, I'm becoming the best ME I can be. It is my hope that I'm showing my daughters that it is not selfish to take care of yourself. In fact, it is necessary for our well-being, leads us to peace and joy, and helps us to take better care of others.

I used my creativity, love of paper crafting, and some of my favorite Stampin' Up! products to make this home decor piece for myself. I have it displayed in my house where I see it everyday. It's pretty, it's inspiring, and, most importantly, it reminds me to take time for self-care so that I can achieve my goal of being the best ME that I can be.

Pressed Petals for a Special Couple

Today, Friday, October 4th, a special young couple commit themselves to one another as they get married. I'll be attending the wedding of two of my daughter Emily's best friends from Mason High School. Emily is Maid of Honor at Morgan & Lincoln's wedding. I've watched these "kids" and their friendships grow since middle school. I'm happy to be attending this special occasion and am excited to share this gift of love for the new Mr. and Mrs.

Twas the Night Before Christmas

Twas the Night Before Christmas and all through the house...you know how it goes! I'm tickled that Stampin' Up! took inspiration from a favorite Christmas story of many of ours to make fun, festive products to help us get out Christmas crafting on. The Night Before Christmas Suite will delight adults and children alike with traditional colors and images that come to mind when we hear the words 'The Night Before Christmas'. 

In the following video from a recent Facebook Live, I show you how I made loads of cards (including a couple of fun fold cards) and two Christmas collages with 2 products from the Night Before Christmas Suite. I used the Night Before Memories & More Card Pack (#150808 at $11) and coordinating Night Before Christmas Cards & Envelopes (#150440 at $11). These cards and collages were made quickly and easily; they're darling; and they didn't break the bank! I'd say that's a win!
