Hello! Lorilei here today in the final days of 2018! I have a easy to make home decor project that will ring in the New Year with an enthusiastic outlook! I have had the best year creating with Crate Paper and feel so lucky each and every day! My scrappy sign uses alphabets from all the Crate Paper collections I have used in 2018 which is a fun reflection on the year for me! It is a great way to use up some alphabet stash too!!
I started out with a heavy piece of white cardstock and trimmed it down to 11×11 and then added a sheet of 12×12 paper from Wild Heart behind it. Who doesn’t need some animal print in their creative space? I gathered my chipboard and foam Thickers from Good Vibes, Wild Heart, Flourish and Willow Lane. I also included the gorgeous glittery copper foam word Thickers from Wild Heart.
The first item I place on the sign was the Memories glitter foam. I used my t-square ruler for each line of “text” so that it would be straight! This gave me the spacing for every other line so that I could create a centered sign. The first line uses Willow Lane alphas, Line 2 – Wild Heart, Line 3 – Flourish + Willow Lane, Line 4 – Willow Lane + Good Vibes, Line 5 – Wild Heart, Line 6 – Willow Lane. At the bottom of the quote, I added the tassel banner chipboard from Good Vibes!
For finishing touches, I added a rosette Stand Out from Wild Heart, black epoxy stars from Good Vibes, copper glitter stars from Wild Heart and puffy gold stars from the Willow Lane Decorative Trim. This little sign makes me happy and is a great reminder that no matter what we go through in a year, there are new possibilities every day for new memories, new lessons in life, new vibes to experience and new moments to document and cherish.
I wish you the very best that 2019 has to offer each and every day.
