So What's New Blog Hop: Laura's Kitchen

Hi, this is Laura from Talkinscrap! If you came here from the Crafty Pink Butterfly's blog,  then you are in the right spot.

I have been wanting to do one of the artist trays by 7 Gypsies for awhile so this blog hop inspired me to try one. I love the images from the Cricut Imagine Cartridge, "Kate's Kitchen" so I thought they would make a perfect home decor piece for my very bare kitchen. I sprayed all the papers and pieces with an acrylic spray to protect the paper since it will be hanging in my kitchen. I wished I had written down all the imagine sizes but I ended up cutting each piece so many times to make them fit perfectly that keeping track of sizes was impossible. I also inked the edges of each piece to give it a little more dimension and used lots and lots of dimensional adhesive.







I will be hopping again tomorrow with another project so leave a comment both days to be entered into a drawing for CTMH blog candy. (by 11:59 pm October 10) Your next stop is Adele at: http://adelescricutcreations.blogspot.com/
