Décor Elements

 

Wow!  Have you seen the new Stampin' Up! product line: Décor Elements?

The Décor Elements product line is self-adhesive vinyl art for walls, mirrors, windows, or other hard, smooth surfaces. It is an extension of our Definitely Decorative home décor line, which is another way to express your creativity--just on a larger canvas than a card or scrapbook page! Décor Elements takes that same idea and uses a different medium to accomplish the same mission, making your home a beautiful representation of your style. And it's inexpensive compared to painting, framing art, or buying new furniture!  The product line is available in three colors, and is available in a wide range of sizes  too, including  44" tall lollipop flowers and the smallest scrolled design at 1.8".  Although the product is slated for your home decor, it can also be used in scrapbooks and to embellish the covers of family albums.  I've even seen the elements used to decorate a car!

I've already received my first Décor Elements order, and plan to re-paint an entire wall to accommodate the approximated. 12" x 30" Create!  It will be excellent inspiration for my stampin' room too!  The medium sized chocolate chip "family" will adorn my hallway, centered among framed family photos.  I know you can't wait to add these phenomenal elements to your home and projects, so here's a simple project you can easily reproduce at home:
