Home Decor with Vinyl

Here's a quick post highlighting some fun I recently had with vinyl.

Dog Food Jars

I love these big pickle jars (picked up at Fred Meyer for less than $20) for keeping our dog food dry and accessible.  As Sawyer requires a $pecial diet, we have separate jars, but kids don't always pay attention as to which is which.  So I decorated them to avoid any further confusion.

Originally I wanted their pictures on the blank frame areas below, but as I do wash these out by hand, I hadn't thought of a good way to secure a laminated picture.  They're blank for now, but I will fill them in soon.
Carts:  Paper Pups, Art Nouveau, A Frightful Affair, Paper Lace

My baby girl, Kate.
My craft buddy, Sawyer.

Wall Art
Next up is a Christmas gift I made for my husband this year - his passion is golf.  These photos were snapped on a golf outing with two of his boys, and on a trip to Pebble Beach with his dad.

I expected him to want to put this collection either in his office or downstairs by the golf closet, but he chose to have them more prominently displayed by our stairs - how sweet!

12x12" canvases from Craft Warehouse - $7.50 ea on sale.  Photos printed out at local FedEx (Kinko's) for just a few dollars.  They were trimmed to 11 1/2 x 11 1/2". 

Brown vinyl from Provo Craft.  Distress Inks in Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, and Walnut Stain.  Photos edited in PSE 9 and Perfect Effects 4.

As you can see I love decorating with photographs in my home!  My hubby picked the spot and arranged the golf art just so.

I've used this fun cart for several projects - but truth be told, I mostly bought it because of the golf art.

Design was created on my Gypsy.  I broke the original art into 2, 11 1/2"mats, deleted some cuts, and stretched it to fit.

This is how the original artwork shows up. (Please excuse the glare, but just at that minute the sun peeked through!)

Thanks for stopping by!
