Kitchen decor with Diana Fisher

Hello! Diana Fisher here with you today sharing a framed project I made for my kitchen. Samantha Walker has these amazing sayings she designed for the Silhouette store and this one always makes me giggle. 

I'm pretty sure these cuts would work perfectly using vinyl, but what if you didn't want to use vinyl? Here is how you can get the same effect with paper. 

I love this Antique Tile blue pattern paper from the Traditions Collection at Carta Bella and it goes perfectly with my kitchen and dining room (the kitchen is tan and the dining room off of it is blue). This frame lives on the counter  at the corner where the dining room meets the kitchen — perfect!

So, here's a little bit about the process. I chose the Antique Damask yellow paper from Traditions for the yellow that is showing through and the brown paper is Rodeo Kid from the Giddy Up Boy Collection. This helped with the contrast to be able to read the letters showing through.

The frame is 8" x 10", so the cut was a little more than 7" by nearly 8". It wasn't an exact measurement, I just wanted it to float on the paper and I cut it later to be even on the sides.

When I took it off the sheet, I was careful not to tear any of the letters. Then I backed it with the yellow paper and adhered the two sheets together.

I put the blue paper in the frame and then used foam adhesive to lift the saying up off the background piece, giving it dimension. A fun little banner in the corner from the Traditions collection sticker sheet and my frame was finished. 

The finished project completes this corner of my kitchen and I couldn't be happier! Is there a spot in your house that could use a fun, new frame?

Thanks for stopping to see my project today!
