Craft Room Tour 0 comments  
      

      

Hello to all my Cherry Fans! 

I have a very fun post for you today. Back in mid-June I started the process of converting an extra bedroom upstairs into a proper scrap room.

I am a very simple girl. I don't like a lot of clutter, I like to keep things simple. I think the biggest thing about me is that I love eclectic, antique pieces. If I can repurpose, reuse some things... shop my attic as it were... that's my jam. 

I got myself some fun organization and decor pieces for my room from A Cherry On Top.

 

          

 

Here are the links to the items I got to add that little extra functional "something" to my space:

Wood Plaque - DIY Home Decor 0 comments  
      

 

Even if you are a beginner crafter, you can make your own home décor with just a few products. This photo plaque makes a lovely wall hanging for your home or for a gift! Create a shabby chic look with these products: a wooden heart, Prima Flowers and a patterned paper from the Georgia Blue collection, 3D Matte Gel, Inka Gold, and KaiserCraft wood flourishes.  I also added in a photo, title, and white acrylic paint from my stash. 

(The heart plaque is out of stock, but here are other wood plaques you could use!)

 


 

 

To begin, I traced the wooden heart onto the paper, cut it out, and then adhered it to the heart with the 3D Matte Gel.  I applied another coat of 3D Matte Gel on top of the paper to seal it.  I painted the wood flourishes white with basic craft acrylic paint.

 


 
I then used my finger to apply Inka Gold all around the outside edge of the heart, allowing it to overlap onto the edges of the heart for a distressed look. Be sure to apply the Inka Gold liberally to cover the unfinished look on the edges. 

 


 
The wood flourishes are attached using the 3D Matte Gel, followed by some gold foil die cut leaves and the Prima Flowers.  I set out the flowers into a shape I liked first, then used the 3D Matte Gel to adhere them into place.

 

     


  
To finish off this project, I matted a photo with the remainder of the Prima paper, then adhered it to the plaque with the 3D Matte Gel and then added a title and a few gold glitter hearts tucked into the sides.  A bit of gold ink for splatter was the finishing touch! 

 

 


 
I love how this project turned out and hope you will give it a try!

Home Decor Tutorial - Be Kind Wall Hanging 1 comments  
      

 
Home Decor Tutorial - Be Kind Wall Hanging
 
 
Hello everyone! I'm so happy to be sharing my first Design Team project for A Cherry On Top with you today!
 
I was inspired by spring and the desire to add some new decor pieces to my home this month. I wanted to freshen up some areas and thought a few homemade additions would be perfect! 
 
I love the Mix The Media products from Jillibean Soup, they make the best bases for projects like this! This laser cut wood words from the new American Crafts Pocket Frames collection caught my eye right away! So I used the demensions of those words to guide the size of my base and the embellishments I chose. For a color scheme I went with light greens and pinks to match the decor in my living room. 
 
 
 
 
I hope you will grab some of these products and create one of these adorable wall hangings just for you!

 

Products I used:

 
 
First, use the flat white paint brush to swipe some white paint on the mix the media base. You can make this as thick or thin as you would like, you just want a white base for the words and flowers to pop off of.
 
 
 
 
Next, I wanted to add a bit of sparkle to my project, so I applied some of the Glitter Kiss to my base. I used my hands but you could use a brush if you like. I liked the way it looked when I just used my finger and it made application easy and fun. I probably added more than I originally planned just because I was enjoying applying it with my finger. 
 
 
 
 
 
I set that aside to dry, although honestly it dries super fast and really only took a couple minutes.
 
I then applied the Dylusions paint to my word. I chose Rose Quartz, but you could choose ANY color paint and flowers that you would like for the next two steps to customize your project. I love the idea of navy words and the Georgia Blue flowers from Prima, those would be gorgeous on this project too!
 
 
 
 
Now the fun part - adhere everything to your wood plank! I used Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. It is my very favorite wet glue and I honestly haven't found anything yet that it won't stick down!
 
 
 
From start to finish, including dry time, this took me less than an hour. And with elements like the white paint and Glitter Kiss not being fussy, even a child could be part of making this project!
 
Thank you so much for joining me today and if you give this a try, be sure to load it into the gallery so I can see!
 
Have A Lovely Day!
