Completed 5d Project: UP Inspired – House and Balloons

My Latest Finish – UP House and Balloons Diamond Painting

This post may have affiliate links but this in no way will influence the post to follow and all opinions are my own.

This has been in process since right before the holidays, so seeing it complete is a great way to welcome the colors of Spring. While I loved the colors, that is where the delay was – lots of confetti colors for the balloons. This is inspired by the Disney movie UP and is the house being taken up by balloons and is 30cm by 40cm.

Needleart World: Diamond Dotz Kit – Sweet Treats Review

Diamond Dotz Diamond Embroidery Facet Art Kit: Sweet Treats Review + a Giveaway

I have always been into crafting and creating something that I can add to my home with pride knowing I am the one who created the item. Generally I have stuck to a couple crafts including knitting, cross stitching and regular stitching, latch hook and scrapbooking.

A couple of months ago I was surfing around Instagram and saw a new type of craft available, called Diamond Dotz. The basic idea was the there was a group of symbols that correlated to a number and color of dotz. Once placed on the adhesive surface they would stick and then together create a beautiful image.The technique is refered to as a Diamond Facet Art Kit

I reached out to Needleart World to see about getting a kit to do a review and they were generous to send me “Sweet Treats” for review, and I have never been more excited to step outside my craft comfort zone.

Stampin’ Up: Crafting Forever Stamp Set Review

How “Crafting Forever” Became A Part of My Life + a Giveaway

My crafting began when I was young with simple coloring, until the day I drove my father crazy. See I was a mere 16 years old and grounded, I was beyond bored and began to drive my father crazy. I was such a nightmare that despite being grounded I was told to go to the craft store and “buy a hobby”. My budget was my imagination and desire, and I was nothing if not overwhelmed.

After about an hour I chose a paint-by-number and a latch-hook kit, which I did finish and with those seeds, the love of crafting was born. I have been addicted ever since, and I can not imagine my life without the crafts.

When I saw the stamp set Crafting Forever Rubber Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up I saw reminders of those first crafts that began the crafting fire inside of me.
