Lucky Girl Dollar Aisle Makeover - Blog Party Day 2

Thanks for joining me again for the Lucky Girl Crafts blog party! I hope you're enjoying your weekend as much as I have been. It's been nice and relaxing - filled with movies and cuddles with my family. Pretty awesome, all in all.

Today's celebration of the Forever Love January 2011 Lucky Girl Crafts Kit brings a dollar aisle make over home decor project. Something I've been wanting to do for a long time, but none of my products had spoken to me (creatively, you know) until now. There was something about those beautiful vintage-inspired flowers on the Pink Paislee paper that just shouted to me - "CREATE!"
So, here's my fun, funky, vintage-y new sign for my soon-to-be redecorated craft area. It's made with a dollar aisle cork board that was already painted pink. Even if the cork board actually cost $2.50 - I still scored a sweet deal!
I fussy-cut the roses out of both sheets of the Pink Paislee patterned papers included in this month's kit and compiled them into a large bouquet. I used my super-old Making Memories foam letter stamps for the main title, along with some Pearl Plaid paint. Once that dried, I outlined it with a fine tipped Sharpie marker, then added my Thickers & Doodlebug letters. I Mod-Podged over the whole thing, then added a 1-1/2" double sided satin sash for hanging it.

What a cute project! My new years resolution is to get my house better organized. I already got started by getting things ready to go to Goodwill and throwing away the rest. It was so freeing and now I have more room to scrapbook. :)

I love this! I love how you did the "e" slightly tilted. I'm so glad I didn't get rid of my foam letters either! LOL I pull them out every once in a while. Looks like I will again. :)
