Home–Be Not Forgetful!

Good morning!  Sherry here today and I have a project to share using Graphic 45 French Country and the new Quietfire release, Home – Congratulations!  


The base is a page from an old chipboard album, that was covered with papers from the Graphic 45 French Country Collection.  The edges of the paper were sanded away and then sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  The black border at the bottom was die cut/embossed with Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders One.  The frame was made from a piece of chipboard that had been covered with another paper design from the collection.  It was die cut with Spellbinders A2 Distressed Edges.

BeNotForgetfulPlaque Sentiment

The sentiment was stamped in black and then die cut/embossed with Spellbinders Labels Twelve.  While the paper was still in the die, Antique Linen was used to stencil in some color leaving a nice white edge around the sentiment.


The seam binding ribbon was dyed with Aged Mahogany Distress Stain and Ink.  The flower was die cut from watercolor paper with Spellbinders Jewel Flowers and Flourish.  Because I wanted it to resemble the sunflowers in the paper, it was colored with Mustard Seed and Wild Honey Distress Stains and highlights were added with Rusty Hinge and Fired Brick inks.

That’s all for me today!  Thanks for stopping in and joining me!
