Kitchen Decor Part 2!

Today I had a really long day at work. Being a social worker can be rough and boy today really did put me through the ringer, so thankfully when I got home I not only had my Cricut Circle welcome kit waiting for me but the Love You A Latte cartridge I won on eBay. Talk about a pick me up! The Love You A Latte cartridge is perfect for the little project of decorating my kitchen so it couldn't have come at a better time. So let's take a look at what I created!
Project Ingredients:
8x8 Canvas
Love You A Latte Cartridge
Cuttlebug and Embossing Folder (I really need to figure out the folders that came with my package)
Baker's Twine Yellow and Pink
Brown/Tan/Checkered Pink & Yellow Cardstock
Mod Podge
My ATG Gun

I started this much like the one on my previous post by covering my canvas with card stock using Mod Podge. I wanted to try something different so I thought why not emboss it? Well the answer to that is because you cant fit more than 6 inch wide card stock through your Cuttlebug right? WRONG! So I decided that if I smashed all the paper in the folder it would all get embossed someway even if it isn't uniform  So I folded my paper to fit in the folder and ran it through hoping for the best. Hey you gotta try right? Well what came out wasn't bad....not bad at all. I smacked my newly embossed card stock onto my canvas and had my base!

I then hopped over to my Cricut and started cutting my layers. I skipped the base layer since my base was my card stock covered canvas. I cut everything on my Expression on size 7. I then, wanting to keep my theme of using baker's twine throughout my kitchen pieces, tied two little bows and stuck them down on the bottom for fun embellishment. I swear one day I will be able to tie a decent bow but until then these will have to do!

That's my short and sweet project for the night. I have a sink full of dishes calling my name and laundry that sure isnt going to wash itself!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
