Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! I’m thrilled to be back on the blog today sharing with you my pretty wall hanging perfect for any area of your home. The jumping-off point for my project was the Botanical Garden collection from Carta Bella Which I combined with some adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and ink from Ranger Ink, I was able to create this pretty Believe in Yourself Wall Hanging. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite Summer beverage as I share with you how to recreate my wall hanging at home. To start, you’ll need a stiff piece of chipboard that measures 4 ½” x 6”, I used an old bingo card. Choose the two-card cut apart papers out of the Botanical Garden Paper Pack from Carta Bella that has the Believe in Yourself card, a plain green one, and the pink plaid card. Cut out the three 3” x 4” cards. Cut the Believe in Yourself card down to 2 ¾” x 3 ¾”. Distress the edges of all three cards. Ink the edges of all three cards using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam from Ranger Ink. Choose one of the patterned paper pieces with the white flowers on it out of the Botanical Garden Paper Pack from Carta Bella. Cut the patterned paper down to 3 ¾” x 5 ¼”. Distress the edges. Ink the edges of the patterned paper using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam from Ranger Ink. Take the pink base with flowers patterned paper out of the Botanical Garden Paper Pack from Carta Bella. Cut two pieces, one that measures 4” x 5 ½” and the other that measures 4 ¼” x 5 ¾”. You’ll use the backside of the 4 ¼” piece. Distress the edges. Ink the edges of both patterned papers using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam from Ranger Ink.
