I was SUPER excited when Dana from Scrapbook News and Review contacted me to be a featured artist over on their magazine's site! :):):)
But what to make to share on their site?? Hmmmmm.. I thought about it and thought about it..and then it hit me!! I seriously AM horrible at making mini albums!! Yes! I make mini albums, but I'm BAD at them....I would much rather take the mini album chipboard pieces and alter them to make home decor pieces! :):):)
So, since we are moving soon, I thought it would be nice to make a new home decor item to welcome people to our new home! And since Nikki Sivils has the most AWESOME House shaped mini album chipboard pieces... I thought they would be perfect for this project!! And one of Nikki's newest lines, "We Are Family"... was the perfect paper choice for my project too! :):):)
Now to share what I made!!! :)
I started with these five chipboard pieces! :)
And here are Nikki Sivils papers that I chose to work with! :)
I covered each chipboard piece.....
And then used my Fiskar's finger cutting tool to trim around the edges....
Now that I have all five pieces covered....
I picked a few of Nikki's "We Are Family" cutout pieces to decorate my pieces! :)
Now...its time for the FUN part!! Time to decorate the pieces!! :)
Now its time to put it all together!! I used Beacon's Zip Dry to make sure it dried fast! :) I glued mine together in a zig-zag fashion which will go on a table right by our new front door of our new home! :)
And here is the finished project!!! I love taking these chipboard mini album pieces and making items for around the home!! :)
I hope I have inspired you to look at chipboard mini album pieces in a whole new way!! And I want to thank Dana and the rest of Scrapbook News And Review for having me as a featured artist!!! :)
