Home is Where the Heart is by Cherry Nelson

       Happy Spring!  I have a fun 3d project to share with you all.  I lost half a Sunday assembling and creating this and it was so enjoyable.  Don't you love getting lost in art?

I started with the Standing Flip Book.  This kit comes with several chipboard pages but I used only one and decorated both sides of it.  So Depending on your mood you can switch out what side you want to see.

 I painted the whole flip book first with white acrylic paint.

 I than covered all my other chipboard pieces-windows-six panel, folding house shrine
 valentine heart shapes

 I added borders to both sides of the flip book.

 I added ribbons to both sides and added my main focal points.

 I assembled my cute tag that I attached to my rings.

 I distressed the flip book all over, especially the edges.

Here is my project completed.

 Isn't the mini house adorable? 

 Here is the other side.

Hope you enjoy!  Cherry

For the Cherry Nelson

Hello paper peeps!!!  My day at the RRR Blog.  This post is literally for the birds or about the birds.  Either way they are the perfect harkener to Spring.
First a sweet tag with a dimensional house that I assembled and trimmed down to fit my tag. 

I covered it in papers and gave it a white wash effect with a chalkboard pen and a bit of Gesso.

 I used Baby Pink Stamens and both my projects used Baby Pink Seam binding.

 I have been enjoying the combination of pinks and yellows.  Such a sweet color combo in my opinion.

 My  next project is an altered egg carton.  This would be so sweet to fill with chocolates as an Easter gift for a friend, child, or hostess.

 With March here...Spring really should be in the air...but Oregon literally just seemed to get around to Winter. 

Hope you enjoy!!!  Thanks for visiting!  Cherry
