BGC#55 - WELCOME HOME - ANETA


Hello everybody on Monday morning!

It's my (Aneta's ) turn to inspire you in our newest Welcome-home-challenge. I prepared something special and creating it for you gave me a lot of fun, but...

Let's start with the rules first:

  • In this challenge we want to see the emphasis on the word "HOME"
  • You can make Cards , 3d projects , canvases , or Layouts 
  • Your project must show a visible connection to the word HOME , it can be just the word HOME written on your project or you can make something that shows elements from your house.
  • Think in the line of shaped cards , Layouts with your house pictures , 3d Bird houses , Bird cages etc. (these are just examples, you are free to depict the theme any way you like.)
  •  Deadline to enter - until 11:55 PM IST on 31st July 2014.  

As usually, we have gorgeous prizes for you sponsored by


and they are:

1 Ranger Perfect Pearls


1 colorbox mini - frost white

4 sponge daubers 


Let's see my project now. It's a... bird house.  I was so excited creating it, that I totally forgot to prepare a small tutorial for you. Don't worry, you will find some hints below.





Because I made it the first time, I used ready base of the bird house, similar to this one:

I started with cutting out the whole in the front of the house bird with Big Shot Sizzix in the choosen sheet of paper. This same way I prepared the circle with dots.
Then I sticked together elements of the house and pieces of pattern paper and cut them out.The back wall is decorated with a paper on the both sides (don't forget about it! inside is visible from the outside).
I inked all edges of the walls, floor and roof and glued them. In the end, I added adhesive pearls and paper birds (cuts-out from Tilda's pad, which I've chosen for this project).

I tried to describe my process of creating as simple as possible and I hope that is clear for you. :-)

All my supplies are: cardstock base of the bird house by Rapakivi, Paper Pad Gardenparty by Tilda, Distress Ink Vintage Photo, adhesive gems, double-sided tape, 3D foam tape, cuttind pad and cutting knife.


Have you seen amazing creations of the rest of our talented DT? Go back and check out Pooja's and Karen's project.
If you decided to play along, please enter your project HERE. We will be really happy to see it!


Thank you for your being with us!
Have an excellent day!
Aneta

BGC#55 -Welcome HOME - Karen


Hello again my crafty friends!!  Hope this finds everyone well. PJ has another great challenge for us!!  I am loving all of the entries so far!!  So I will share my project and then be sure to check out our generous sponsers and of course link up for a chance to win!!


Guidelines :
  • In this challenge we want to see the emphasis on the word "HOME"
  • You can make Cards , 3d projects , canvases , or Layouts 
  • Your project must show a visible connection to the word HOME , it can be just the word HOMEwritten on your project or you can make something that shows elements from your house.

  •  Deadline to enter - until 11:55 PM IST on 31st July 2014.  

I am trying to step out of my box more and do things in addition to my layouts. In my home we have lots to up cycle. I wanted to repurpose these sturdy strawberry containers. 
   
After my project was complete I found another way to use these containers. They can be cut, sanded, colored, and baked to shrink for jewelry pieces!! In the past we have used them to start seeds. Since they are slotted they drain perfectly. But for today, I wanted something a little prettier...

I covered the top and inside with Prima papers. I used pink and black ribbon/tulle around the top and bottom portion. 

Inside I placed a little frame and there is ample space to store pictures or any special item really!
I then added the Home Sweet Home sentiment from my silhouette and added a bit of lace and flowers!! 
I hope you enjoyed my project share and I hope you will link up as well!!

Ok so now lets move on to my project 

I really wanted to make a shaped card ! its been ages i tried my hand on a house shaped card ! 
 I really love how this turned out. 
At first i wasn't very sure if i co-ordinated the papers right , but it came out well. 
 Here is a closer look at the door :) 
i layered my pieces on top of a rectangular wood grain look PP and distressed the edges. 
I then used my grey pen to give some faux stitches all around the frame and inside.
All the shrubs are stamped , hand colored and fuzzycut. 
The stamp set i used was Pink paislee butterfly garden . Also i added a little wodden bird on top of the flowers.
 The lamp is a sizzix die, i inked it with distress inks and added some random markings around the whole thing with a black pen. And then there is the sentiment HOME :) also cut with a sizzix die .

So Thankyou for joining us :) 
We are eager to see your entries ! Link them below.
