Love Blocks

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you all have had a great weekend. Today I am going to share my latest home decor project with you. With all the Christmas decorations taken down and put away our mantel was looking a little bare and my husband asked if I would make something to spruce it up. So he cut me some blocks and from scrap wood he had laying around and I got to work.

Here's how it all started.

 I decided to use some of my ink sprays which I'm never quite sure what to do with. I'm not usually happy with how they turn out on projects, either there is too much ink spray or too little. Anyway this time they turned out just right :)

Then I got to work assembling the letter plates for my blocks. I used my CAMEO to cut my letters. Have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE my Cameo? It cuts like butter and my paper never tears, not to mention how easy it is to shadow and object in its software. Sigh....

 And finally here is what the final project looks like after a coat of mod podge. I am so happy with how this turned out!


I hope everyone has a fabulous week! I'm off to South Carolina to see one of my best friends. My sweet, sweet hubby bought me a plane ticket to go visit her for Christmas. I am beyond excited :)
