A temporary pane…

Linda_Neff_mug_shot_2013Welcome! We’re in the middle of the Xyron and Doodlebug Blog Hop and I’ve got a treat for you! I took one of my old windows and transformed it into a Fall home decor project that doubles as a dry erase board where I can leave messages for the family.

Doodlebug Design shared quite a bit of new product with us and it was so much fun to play with. I received beautiful papers and colorful stickers and embellishments from their Happy Harvest line.

I started by spreading out my papers and cleaning my window panes.

The pattern needed to be broken up amongst the panes so I matched two textured cardstocks from Core’dinations and cut them all to size. I lightly sanded the textured cardstock to add a bit of interest and wiped away the paper dust with the Core’dinations Sand-It cloth.

With the papers cut to fit inside the window panes they were very easy to attach using Xyron’s High Tack Adhesive Dots. I used the 3/16″ because the smaller size is easier to disguise.

Once the backgrounds papers were attached – to the backside of each window pane – the rest was pure fun!

I added the stickers and embellies to the front of the window panes and framing. It was like playing with Colorforms (remember those?).

At the end I decided to add a little banner to string across the window. The shape is cut from more Doodlebug papers using a Tim Holtz die along with some rosettes to fancy them up just a bit and added some Doodlebug Sprinkles in the rosette centers.

By placing the pretty papers behind each window pane the panes are used as a dry erase board as well.
