Julie Tucker-Wolek with you here today and I was 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? Hmm.. 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 making them....I would much rather take the mini album chipboard pieces and alter them to make home decor piece! :)
So, since my family is 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 glue it all together! :) 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!
Thanks for stopping by! Julie TW :)
