Nursery Decor with Glue Dots®

Nursery D├ęcor
I have not figured out how to take a picture with glass yet.
So the top picture is with the glass.
Lower without the glass.
This is such a easy project. I used a frame I bought at a garage sale.
Took the mat out and added the paper with 1" Glue Lines®.
I added a sweet little dress that I had sketched out a while ago and colored it with
Distress Markers-Tim Holtz.
It was so sweet I thought I would frame it.
So easy!
Want the full scoop and instruction?

Head over to Glue Dots® and get them!

Thanks for stopping by!

I wrote this blog while participating on the Glue Dots® Design Team.

July Tag Challenge

So here we are in July and this is my July tag for Tim Holtz's 12 tags challenge.

Tim's challenge this month started with this................................

we want to take this moment to acknowledge the fallen Prescott firefighters “the granite mountain hot shots” in the recent tragedy.  our thoughts and prayers go out to them and their families for this very sad loss – we are forever thankful for their service…

So with that being said here is how I chose to honor the firefighters.

I used the same technique as Tim with the brayer and my background stamp I used the USA stamp from "mini blueprints 2". I also used the birds from "mini ornates", I felt it represented the fallen firefighters.

Then I chose to add words that I felt represented the firefighters. So I used Tim's rub ons and used words like courage, fearless, brave...................

Instead of using the charm Tim used, I change it to a tag label charm. This was so I could incorporate the word courage. I also used a rub on for this.

On my ribbon I added the words "thank you" and stained the ribbon the same way Tim did.

Added the 4 from Tim's mini numerals and added 3 metal stars at the bottom.

Close up of the tag label charm
(started with the word fearless, but thought courage was better)
my ribbon close up
this is the set where USA and Flag came from
(love it, won, and gave it away)
(already had it so I wanted to share)
Final look at the full tag!

Hope you enjoyed July's tag..............................I DID!
