This weeks “Teamie Tuesday” topic was Home Decor, i’d seen these 12″ x 12″ samplers in one of the Facebook groups (I cannot for the life of me find the post again to credit the creator), I’ve done something similar before where I created an 8″ x 8″ page and framed it in a box frame that I had brought from the range and I think I will do the same for this one. This was originally going to be a gift for my parents but it matches my living room so I might just keep this one and create another for them haha.
Firstly I marked a cross indicating the centre of the page, this was to allow me to line up the squares.
I then cut out all the base squares.. the Lemon Lime Twist at 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ for the centre square and 12 smaller squares at 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″
The Fresh Fig was cut at 5″ x 5″ and 12 at 2 1/4″ x 2 1/4″
and lastly the Whisper White at 4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ and 12 at 2″ x 2″
I used the Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime twist ink pads and the Eastern Beauty stamp set to create a mini images on each Whisper White swore, I had no set pattern or method in my head, I just stamped until each one looked “done”.. and then I assembled them all together.. you can see a step by step process video HERE!
