Finally!

And only a few days after Christmas too! I finally finished my blocks for my house! Yep! I am really happy with them too! Wanna see?

They are done on the largest size blocks I could find – 2 1/4 in blocks. Only problem was – I didn’t have any rub ons that were big enough! So I had to use the biggest ones I had…oh well!

supplies: basicgrey figgy pudding papers; 2 1/4 in blocks; white acrylic paint; sanding blocks; making memories rub ons; mod podge; and plaid acrylic sealant.

I chose the word PEACE because it’s what our stocking hangers spell. Our stocking hangers used to spell JOY. Then we had Alex and they spelled NOEL. And along came Adam…..and now they spell PEACE. So I guess that’ll be our theme word now, lol! I am glad I got them done – I’ll leave them out for about a day before we pack up the Christmas stuff….but I love them!

And just an FYI for those of you awaiting GinaK’s January release party – the date was moved a bit and here’s the new info:

    Couldn’t you just pick a font and run your patterned paper through the printer before cutting your squares to get a letter that was large enough? Just a thought…

  • Hi Emily!!! Your blocks look great!! I don’t think the letters are too small. I think it looks nice 🙂 Thanks for the tip on your sisters fonts..I didn’t know anythings about them – super cute!! Downloaded a bunch!! Since I don’t have a way to thank her – please say Thank you from me and that they are really cute!! Have a fabulous day! – Kat

    I think the blocks look great! I was going to try to pick some of these blocks up at Recollections the other day but they only had like 3 blocks of various sizes left…I’m really going to miss that store!
    BTW, have you seen the magnetic clips at the Target dollar spot?? I picked up a package of them yesterday…along with a couple of packages of the 4×6 self-stick notes…I’m thinking teacher gifts when teacher appreciation week comes up!

  • Emily – I love the blocks! The colors are great.

  • Love the blocks! I got some mini wood blocks that I want to make something with, this is great inspiration!
