It’s been a while since I started creating my little crafty corner in one side of our bedroom. Meaning no more moving my craft supplies around the house! And now I can even decorate or do a bit of filming. Of course I need to know a lot about filming and editing before I actually make a decent video, but I like that option.

So my first project for today is something that is NOT a card! A wall decor piece for my happy place (or as a gift) made with the lovely Live Your Dream collection by Altenew. Wanna know how it all came together? Off we go!

I first started by fussy cutting lots of beautiful leaf branches from this lovely paper from the collection.

And continued by sticking a piece of the gorgeous Painted Fantasy Washi Tape onto white cardstock and doing some more fussy cutting.

I used my favorite watercolor stripes patterned paper from the collection and added lots of black watercolor splatters. I die cut my quote letters twice using the Fine Alphabet die set and some black cardstock. I stacked the letters one on top of the other and adhered with liquid glue. I also used the Live Your Dream Puffy Alphabet Stickers for the word ‘creative’.

Then, I arranged my fussy cut pieces as well as elements from the Live Your Dream Chipboard Stickers and Clear Stickers around the quote. I adhered some of it using liquid glue and others with foam tape.

Bellow you can watch a brief video of the whole process.

With everything in place, I added a couple of Accetate Butterflies and some Wood Epoxy Buttons. A few black enamel dots here and there and project completed! Let’s frame it!

This IKEA Ribba frame is perfect for when you have 3D elements on your projects.

In addition to this piece of wall decor I created a matching card for a crafty friend’s birthaday in case I want to hand it out as a gift.

Starting off with a leftover piece of the same striped paper and some stamping. I chose the Altenew Floral Shadow stamp set and Volcano Lake ink to make a leafy background. For added dimension I foam mounted a couple of the fussy cut leaf stickers and a couple of the Butterfly Acetates.

I stamped the sentiment which comes from the Sakura Blossom stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black ink before adhering the patterned paper and leaves with more foam tape.

To embellish a bit more, I added gray enamel dots from the Rock Collection, here and there.


I had a blast creating this wall decor piece and card with this amazing collection. Bellow there are a few more cards that I created using it.

Thank you so much for spending time with me! Hope you got inspired and use your papers and embellishments in a similar way! Have a wonderful week and I’ll see you soon!
