Book Wall Art

7 Sep

I saw on pinterest that someone took a mat, a book page, and a letter and made wall art out of it. Well of course I’m going to change it up a little and make it more like me ūüėČ Since my mom and sister are the bookworms and I’m more into magazines – I decided to take a magazine page and add a letter to it.

 

Since I had all the materials laying around the house – this cost me absolutely nothing ūüôā Nothing makes me happier than free projects! So I got my black vinyl paper for the cricut, my mat board, and a sheet from a magazine for the background.

 

I put some adhesive on the back of the mat board and placed the paper and let it dry while I cut out my letter on my cricut machine.

 

Then I put peeled the vinyl off and placed on the magazine sheet. Simple as that and now I have one more crafty thing to hang in my studio room ūüôā I plan on doing the same thing for the book people in my family! Can anyone say budget friendly Christmas presents?

Thanks for stopping by!
Love Always,

“My full-time occupation is a teacher. I started in fashion but decided to become a teacher, and I absolutely love my job. I am a busy mother of three, who also LOVES scrapbooking and card making and have decided to use this passion to create a small business.¬†Due to my fashion background I pay attention to detail.

What got you interested in crafting?

I have always crafted since I was a child e.g., knitting, sewing. I really got into paper crafts when I had my first child and I wanted to make a scrapbook of his life. Three kids later and two cricuts later and I am addicted!

 

What has been your favorite project to make and why?

My¬†favorite¬†projects to make have been my children’s scrapbooks as they love going through their book and remember the events. They are even beginning to tell what photos they want included.

 

What’s the secret behind your etsy name?

My etsy name Seasons came about because I make cards that cover the seasons.

 

If you could open up a shop in your town what would you call it and what would it be like?

If I could open a shop I am not sure what I would call it but it would probably have pinks and chocolate browns (favorite colour combination).

 

What is the most challenging thing you have made?

I think each project is a challenge as I try to come up with designs that are not already being made.

 

What are some of your goals you hope to achieve within the next year?

Within the next year my goals are to add new products to my shop and to make sales.

 

What inspires you to be crafty?

The card challenge sites inspire me to be crafty as there are guidelines one has to meet, and ideas just pop into my head.

 

What is your best quality when it comes to your crafts?

My best quality when crafting is being a perfectionist. I add details ie shading using chalk, and if I am not happy with a project I start again.

 

If you could have one thing to help your store what would it be?

If I could one thing to help my store it would be more sales.
