Spring Magic Wall Hanging

April 4, 2020

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here! Spring is here and I’m so glad that it has finally arrived. The days are starting to get longer and with the longer days, comes new home decor pieces for my home. For todays project, I’ve created this Spring Magic Wall Hanging.

To create my wall hanging, I’ve used a variety of dies from Suzanne Cannon! To compliment the products from Suzanne Cannon, I’ve also used dies from Els van de Burgt Studio. Read below as I have a tutorial for you on how to recreate my wall hanging.

Step One. Die cut the 5 3/4″ Stitched Rectangle out of a thin piece of chipboard or cardboard. Die cut the 5 3/4″ Stitched Rectangle out of a piece of book page. Distress the edges of both rectangles. Ink the edges of both rectangles using Hickory Smoke Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Choose three pieces of coordinating spring paper. From one of the patterned papers, die cut a 5 1/4″ Stitched Rectangle. From the second patterned paper, die cut a 4 3/4″ Stitched Rectangle. From the third patterned paper, die cut a 4 1/4″ Stitched Rectangle. Distress the edges of all three rectangles. Ink the edges of all three rectangles using Hickory Smoke Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Die cut the Flourished Frame Die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Four. Die cut the Flourished Oval Frame out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Five. From the Butterfly Flourish die, die cut the small butterfly twice and the medium butterfly once out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Choose a fourth patterned paper that goes with the previous patterned papers and die cut two small butterflies and one medium butterfly out of the paper.

Step Six. Choose a fifth patterned paper that coordinates with the previous used papers. Die cut the Magic word out of the fifth patterned paper as well as one of the previously used patterned paper.

Step Seven. Choose two of the previously used patterned papers. Die cut the Spring word out of one of the patterned papers and then again out of the second patterned paper.

Step Eight. Adhere the 5 3/4″ book page rectangle to the 5 3/4″ chipboard or cardboard rectangle. Adhere the 5 1/4″ rectangle to the 5 3/4″ rectangle.

Step Nine. Adhere the Flourished Frame to the 5 1/4″ rectangle. Adhere the 4 1/4″ rectangle to the 4 3/4″ rectangle. Foam square the 4 3/4″ rectangle to the 5 1/4″ rectangle.

Step Ten. Adhere the two Spring words together so that the back word becomes a shadow for the top spring word. Adhere the two Magic words together so that the back word becomes a shadow for the top magic word. Adhere the Flourished Oval Frame to the middle of the 4 1/4″ rectangle. Adhere the Spring and Magic word as desired in the oval.

Step Eleven. Fold the wings up on the patterned medium butterfly, apply adhesive to the middle of the butterfly and adhere to the white soft finish cardstock medium butterfly. Fold the wings up on both small white soft finish cardstock butterflies, apply adhesive to the middle of the two butterflies and adhere to the patterned paper small butterflies. Adhere one of the small butterflies to the top right corner of the 4 1/4″ rectangle. Adhere the medium butterfly to the bottom left side of the flourished oval. Adhere the other small butterfly slightly above the medium butterfly.

Step Twelve. To finish the wall hanging, punch two holes at the top of the wall hanging. Tie white twine through the holes to create the hanger part of the wall hanging.

Oma & Me

August 19, 2019

Good morning! I was honored to be asked by Els to create a layout of her granddaughter and her. I will admit, I was slightly nervous to create something for someone else but the photo she provided was so wonderful that it helped design the layout.

To create this layout you will need 2 full sheets of paper (I used ModaScrap Wood Effect paper (the top one) and ModaScap Relax in the Garden. I also used lots of bits and pieces and 1/2 sheets of the relaxing the garden papers. You will also need an edge distresser, brown ink, a few pearls for inside your flowers and of course your wonderful ECD dies.

Step 1 – Trim your top sheet to 11 3/4 x 11 3/4 then using a pair of sharp scissors trim a bit of the top sheet in little bit so the bottom sheet will show more then using your distressing tool shred the edges a bit on both papers

Step 3 – Using the smallest shape in the fitted hexagons die set, cut 23 – 25 hexagons. Ink then distress the edges.

Step 4 – Using the Planner Essentials 8 cut one of the large tag and the title and ink and die and ink and distress

Step 5 – Using the stitched circles die cut the second largest circle the ink and distress the edges

Step 6 – Using planner essentials 11 cut one of the tags and 4 of the strips then ink and distress the edges

Step 7 – Cut the top layer of the butterfly flourish and ink the edges

Step 8 – Using the backside of one of the relaxing in garden papers or a piece of off white cardstock die cut 2 leafy branches, then trim them in half so you will now have 4 pieces and ink the edges

Step 9 – Using your left over pieces of paper and your favorite flower dies die cut your flowers – I used, bunch of flowers 3, large flower set, and small flower set. I cut three of each flower and layered each one but you can also just die cut one and leave your flowers flat.

Step 10 – Assemble and enjoy!

Thanks so much for stopping by
