I completely missed the reveal day for Kellie's new stamps...hopeless I know! Unfortunately I've not had alot of time to sit down and play with the cameo BUT I did get a brilliant idea (lol) when I saw her Christmas set, Magic! I love the "merry & bright" stamp, it jumped out at me straight away and I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
Bit of a back story.....but...this year for some crazy reason I decided to set up 2 trees. There's the main "Santa delivers here" tree (which I'll share later for another project, ha!) then there is this little one out the back of the house that I set up. It's near the back door to the house so not many people will see it but it's kinda cute at night time with the lights on. Just went with plain silver over the tree but I really wanted something to jazz up the mantle a little.
Cue my brilliant idea to try string art, completely inspired by Pinterest of course. I have to admit, my initial plan was to do the whole thing as string art but man, there were sooooo many nails and I got confused what went where so it was not pretty. Rather than veto the whole idea I did boot up my trusty little Cameo, cut the words out of vinyl and went with string art for the "&" symbol! Ding ding, winnnnner! Check it out!! ;)
And some obligatory close up shots so you can see the details :)
I'm not that good at the DIY stuff generally speaking but I'm really happy how it turned out, I think its just a tad bit cute :)
The vinyl I used I actually took from work (yes, I got permission from the boss lol) - its a chrome finish and although it like it, it's a pain to use haha. Scratches sooooo easily, you can see them all in the close ups but from a distance it's fine, so that's all that matters :)
I like the pop of orange with all the silver and white in the room! PS - Photographing the chrome is painful too. Reflects everything ;)
And that's all I've managed so far... Totally slacking I know.
Kellie went above and beyond with this month's release, seriously. Check these out (click image to go straight to her store and see them better!):
Awesome or what?!
Well that's it for me today. OH! Some good news. Dad is home! WOHOO! Got the news this morning so mum was straight into the car and driving down to pick him up and take him away before they changed their minds again lol. Thank you so much for the messages/thoughts/prayers - we (my family and I) really, REALLY appreciate it - he's home now, so all those good vibes obviously worked! ;)
Thanks so much for stopping by. Take care, Em xo
