The marriage of scrapbook/paper supplies and home decor is always a sweet challenge for me. I love seeing how to make these memory keeping collections play into creative pieces that are vying to be displayed in one’s home.

Today I have three very simple and very doable home decor pieces I want to share with you.

Let’s start with that framed WELCOME sign.

I had an idea that I wanted a die cut word to span the frame with a welcome sentiment. This frame, salvaged from the almost garbage, measures about 16-inches wide. If I were to use cardstock then I was going to have to improvise, as cardstock is only 12 inches wide. So I needed to have two cuts made. This is what the word looked like on my cut mat.

I cut two WELCOME words from Bazzil textured cardstock. The Flamingo is a beautiful hue to be paired with Take Me Away. I cut the front part of the word and then the end part of the word.

Then I simply adhered them together so that I had one long 16-inch word. And that is how the sentiment for this welcome sign came into being.

Next, I fussy cut flowers from Take Me Away patterned paper.

Additional floral flourishes and leaves were cut digitally on my Sizzix Eclips2 machine and tucked them in behind the fussy cuts. I love the layers and depth of texture that this brought to the wall piece.

The next piece is also a little framed treasure. I used a frame from my stash to display a cut-away card.

I think it’s important to have positive words that catch our eyes throughout the day. This 3×4 cut-away from the Take Me Away collection was trimmed down a bit to fit in this cute frame. I love how it complements the rest of the vignette.

The third piece happened quite on accident. Don’t you love when that happens? This Ikea frame was spray painted with metallic gold. I do this all the time to alter pieces around here. I happened to have an off cut of the Take Me Away Specialty Paper laying on my work table. This is a beautiful acetate paper with gold foil. It was just so pretty all by itself in the frame and made a stunning addition to this home decor collection.

And that is just three ways to create a Home Decor vignette with a paper collection. A framed die cut + fussy cut florals, a framed word of encouragement, and a gold enhanced clear piece that simply brings beauty to any entry way. Enjoy being challenged to find home decor goodness in your paper crafting stash!
