Hello Wood Plank | Jillibean Soup

 I'm sharing a project using Jillibean Soup Oval Wood Plank Sign with Felt Flowers.  This sign would be an easy project to create for a house warming gift, teachers gift and even for your front door! 

Let's get started shall we? I have a complete list of supplies required at the bottom of this post.  Any questions please feel free to comment or contact me directly!

This is a sign I created for my blank kitchen wall! It really needed something with color and this wood plank was perfect. It measures 12" high and about 8" wide.

The First step in creating this sign is to get your supplies ready. I first started by cutting out a few things with my Silhouette Cameo. I cut out the word Hello ( #175558 ) a few leaves ( #159025) and some small vines (#196579). All of these can be found in the Jillibean Soup Section in the Silhouette Online Store.
I enjoy adding dimensions to my projects but I didn't want to add popdots to this sign. I cut out 6 hello words and then did the same for the leaves. I stacked them on top of each other to create a thick cut word. I glued between all layers and that made them sturdy, bendable, and so much nicer on a finished project. 

Here are my files all cut out - 

Here is a closer look at my word Hello - nice and clean ! It takes a bit of time to glue all these pieces, but it worth it. I just find it finishes nicely.
After my words were cut I had to decide on the color of my felt flowers. I wanted yellow for sure and yes turquoise is a must but wasn't sure on the light yellow or grey. 
I also wanted more yellow but only had one flower from the package. I had a light bulb moment! Let's take this yellow flower and make more!

I deconstructed the dark yellow flower by removing a few strands of the felt. It's already cut to create a flower it just needs to be glued again. I created another just by removing 2 rows of the felt.  I still had a large yellow flowers and I removed another layer to create a smaller one that you'll see in the finished project. So just because you only have 1 flower doesn't mean you can't compromise!


Time to get my flowers organised.  I could have added more but I didn't want this to be too busy. I wanted something that showcased that beautiful yellow and turquoise so this cluster was perfect for me.

Once the flowers were glued with a glue gun - although the adhesive that comes on the back of these flowers are really sticky!  I added my leaves, the small pieces of vine, and of course my hello.

To add a few extra details I added some wood dots and I some glossy accent to make "water droplets!"

 I really had a great time making this sign and it hangs nicely in my kitchen! It took me about 2 hours to finish but I was slow!
If you have any questions please contact me directly! You can find more of my projects on instagram @KristineDavidson and please make sure you follow Jillibean Soup @JillibeanSoup.

Vintage Blessings | Simple Stories

Hello Friends!
Here are 2 layouts I recently created for Simple Stories using Vintage Blessings.

The first layout is called " Love & Laughter "

This layout was created with 1 piece of 12x12 patterned paper and the rest was used with 3x4 journal cards that I cut out from the Journaling Card Elements paper. So simple to create a layout using these cards as 3x4 pieces of paper and not necessarily journaling cards. You can use the reverse side, only parts of the card or trim what you need !

I added a few pieces of stickers from the 4x6 sticker pack, a few chipboard pieces and some enamel dots. I did add some glossy accents on the hearts to add a bit of glossy shine and dimension.

My second layout is called " Thankful "

I used a bit more papers on this layout. I love how they are match each other and the picture kind of fits perfectly with this collection!

I used the Thankful Chipboard piece to create my title. For some extra depth and dimension I used some dimensional adhesive underneath and of course layered around the title and photo.

I hope you enjoyed and found some inspiration today !
