Exploring Cricut-Daily Project

Happy Saturday!! Hope your weekend has gotten off to a great start. Today just happens to be my day to present the daily project at Exploring Cricut. And do I have a surprise for y'all!!! It isn't a card!!!! You heard me right! I didn't make a card this time!!! We have secret sisters at church and I made this project for mine's August gift. I used the Chip Decor Cartridge. It is exclusive to Hobby Lobby to use with their Paper Studio Chip Decor. Each project in the booklet tells you what size to cut so it will fit. I used the word 'Faith'. First I painted it with white acrylic craft paint. The paper I chose is from Hobby Lobby's open stock. This one is called Faith Text. Since the word Faith is longer than 12 inches I had to piece my paper. Good thing there isn't a set pattern to this paper. The booklet said to cut it at 5.5 inches. I coated part of the work with Modge Podge, put the paper down, lifted up the next part, applied Modge Podge, layed the paper down until I had it all attached. Then I coated the top of the paper with Modge Podge. Now to decorate it but to not over do. First I wanted to cover the seam that the paper piecing made. I used some Fluerettes by Mark Richards for that. Then I added a Prima Flowers Elegance Opal butterfly at the bottom of the 'i' and a Feather Flair from Dress It Up to the bottom of the 'F'. And that's it. Hope you made a project for our Back To School challenge. If you haven't, you have until 9pm, EST, tonight to link one up. I promise I'll come by and admire what you make. And have you been checking out the daily projects that my DT Sisters and Brother have been making? If not, you sure are missing some awesomeness!!! Hope y'all like my project for today. :)

This is absolutely beautiful. I love all the flower accents. I think I am glad I don't have a Hobby Lobby near me. ;)
