wallpaper projects!

I have been been bubbling with anticipation to share today's projects with you! In October, Wayfair contacted me to create a blog post using wallpaper scraps! 

I have been a Wayfair fan for ages. What is Wayfair?
Wayfair is one of the world's largest online destinations for the home.

"Wayfair offers a zillion things home. With one of the world's largest online selections of furniture, home furnishings, d├ęcor and goods, including more than eight million products from over 10,000 suppliers, Wayfair helps people find the perfect product at the right price. Our extensive selection and superior customer service coupled with the convenience of online shopping, make it easier than ever before to find exactly what you want for your home at a price you can afford." - Wayfair

We renovated my stamping space a few years ago and I have one wall that I have intended to wallpaper - for years. This was the perfect excuse to bust out the wallpaper for the wall and to get crafty!!

I started searching for a wallpaper on and was shocked at the selection available! Wallpaper has come along way over the years. There is textured paper, paint-able papers, papers with shimmer/ shine, and just about every pattern and style you could imagine. Wayfair allows you to create inspiration boards as you search, I now have a wallpaper board and am dreaming of other walls in my home I can cover!

I selectively trimmed this piece of wallpaper to have the pattern on the card front, just the way I wanted. Imagine how many cards you could make with the scrap ends of wallpaper from your roll!

I layered the wallpaper with Stampin' Up! cardstock, stamps and embellishments. Scroll to the bottom of this post to see the supply list and shop my online store.

scrapbooking with scrap wallpaper

This scrapbook layout measures 12" x 12". My wallpaper piece is trimmed to 10" x 10". I used a photograph from a recent girls weekend away. Printing my photo in black and white really adds to the color scheme.

Needless to say, I have yet to wallpaper my craft room wall ... but it is on my to do list and I will get that done soon! If you are scrapbooking with you wallpaper scraps, imagine scrapbooking these photographs:

  • Renovation scrapbook page - before and after pictures of your space
  • Child's room scrapbook page - pictures of your child or their room
  • Baby scrapbook page - include pictures of the nursery or your babe! 

I blog because I love to create and I love to share what I do. I get such a thrill seeing my projects pop up on my Pinterest feed. When people like Wayfair reach out to me and tell me that they have visited my blog, it blows my mind! Just little old me, in little old Edmonton - my projects! Fills my bucket!

So a special thank-you to each and everyone of YOU that follow the Stampin' Dolce blog and social media. Your love, likes, Pins and shares mean so much to me! Muah!!!!

Making the most of your designer paper - Fancy Friday Blog Hop

Welcome to the November Fancy Friday Blog Hop! We are early this month, not on our regularly scheduled last Friday of the month. Hard to believe, but we are juggling our November and December dates so that we can work around Christmas .. yes, Christmas. It is right around the corner, I am afraid to say.

For November, our team was challenged to create based on this inspirational sketch:

Last week I went on a Stamping Retreat for the weekend. I packed up all of my Christmas paper, stamps and embellishments for a festive creating binge. I was inspired to use the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper for a non-Christmas project.

Next on the Fancy Friday Blog Hop is the talented Shannon Lane.

Thank-you for visiting. We will see you for the next Fancy Friday Blog Hop on December 15, 2017. Have a creative day!

Stocking Tags - #GDP113

Oh my gosh!! It feels like forever since I have blogged! Last week I took the most amazing week vacation and hug out with 10 Stampin' Up! friends from around the world! We spent time in Calgary, Banff and our cabin here in Alberta, Canada. I have loads of pictures and memories to share with you and will have a blog post coming soon!

Today, I wanted to share a stocking gift tag that I created with the color combination challenge from the Global Design Project.

These little stockings can made gift tags, gift card holders, treat containers, advent calendars and so much more! Look at these ideas from Stampin' Up!© ...

These thinlit dies have a coordinating Stamp Set that you can purchase as a bundle and save 10%.

Trim Your Stocking Bundle
$70.00 CAD
Check out the shopping list below links to shop these popular Christmas products.

I paired these thinlit dies with the Santa's Sleigh Thinlits for my gift tag. The style and scale of the dies go so well together! 

Each Monday the Global Design Project comes to you with a new challenge. The elite design team will share project ideas inspired by the challenge (visit the GDP to see what we have created), and then it is up to you to stamp, share and follow along! Learn more at the Global Design Project!

Thank-you for visiting! Have a creative day!
