A B C's

Hello Everyone,

This is Yvonne from Ink-spirations and I'm excited to be part of this great blog. Today I'd like to share a home decor project and a some little book marks. The book marks follow the monthly theme of end of summer/back to school.

This wall hanging is for my newest Grandson for Christmas. I started with a white canvas 14x20. Painted the background a very light blue and then created a frame look with a darker blue.

The letters are from the Planting SchoolBook cartridge and are between 1.75" and 2.5".Each letter was faux stitched with a black pen. Zooballo was used for the animals and were sized accordingly to the letter. I used CCR to design and cut everything with my Imagine and all images were printed using Bubblegum Stripes. 
Black pearls were added to each animal and additional embellishments of  dew drops and ribbon were added. Xyron machine used for adhesive.

The cute little characters are Page Pals from the Cricut Craftroom and are available digitally.  They were quick to make. They were all cut at 4". Industrial Glow was used for the printing of the paper.
Thanks for stopping by!
Yvonne

  5. What a wonderful family keepsake as well as an excellent learning tool. I am trying to use the Imagine for patterns along with images from the regular cartridges so I know this took a lot of planning and work. Great job!
