B is for Bunch home decor

Off the Page   /  

Hey-ho there!

If you’re finding your way to my blog today, you may be visiting from Jot Magazine Issue 9 – isn’t she a beauty! I am thrilled to have 2 pieces included this issue – a home decor piece and a 12×12 scrapbooking layout.

The first uses Kellie Stamps’ gorgeous deer stamp. This cute little baby came in very handy for my Christmas tags, and is uber modern – deers are popping up all over the design world! I simply stamped him all over some white cardstock, as a cute background for this home décor piece that sits proudly at our front entrance. {When I say “simply”, I mean I carefully measured and marked out in pencil where I was going to put him – OCD much?! It was totally worth it though, and I only made 1 boo-boo… so I went with it anyway.}

I experimented around with some different fonts – I wanted to make sure I filled the 8×10 frame appropriately. I simply printed it from Word onto regular printer paper because I was only going to use it as a stencil to trace onto my Jac paper anyway. For those new to Jac paper, it’s simply a big piece of paper with one side entirely sticky. After I cut out my Jac paper “B” I doused it with Martha Stewart glitter – it’s super fine and sparkly, and the colour names also happen to be crystals {total bonus that makes them that much more fun for me to use!}

The second layout in Jot is a farewell of my daughter’s school year a few months ago. She had a tough year, including some health issues early on and a teacher she just didn’t gel with. I loved this photo, but didn’t want to publicly dwell on the bad stuff (I’ve kept a school letter with all the details in the album sleeve behind this layout). I kept the journaling short and sweet, and embellished with some bright and cheerful Heidi Swapp and Maggie Holmes. I used some pink watercolour as a bit of a border, which I really love – super quick, easy and keeps the layout together effectively.
