Home Decor Challenge with Izzy


Hi everyone!  Today I’m going to share a home décor project with you. One of my favorite paper crafting projects is to alter or repurpose a frame.

I’m always on the lookout for inexpensive shadowbox frames.  This one measures 7 x 9 inches on the inside and 8 x 10 inches on the outside.  The perfect size for a summer scene.

I started by choosing a variety of Fancy Pants Designs papers in various shades of blue for a soft, dreamy look.  I chose patterns from Down By The Shore, Park Bench and Trend Setter and cut them into squares.

I arranged the squares into a grid on a piece of cream cardstock (the B side of “Beachside” from Down By The Shore) and loosely tacked them down.

Once my grid was in place, I stitched across each row and down each column.

I started the scene by piecing together a sailboat using paper and embellishments from Down By The Shore.

Next, I repurposed a felt flower from Park Bench as the sun, adding rays with patterned paper.  I finished the scene with a sentiment on a tag, using alphas from the Sticker Fundamentals from both Down by the Shore and Swagger.

Thanks so much for joining me today on the Fancy Pants Designs blog.  The challenge this week is to make a project that uses punches.  Please link your projects in the comments. We can’t wait to see what you’ve made!
