Khouang blocks

My last name is KHOUANGRASVONGSAY! Yes, it really is that long, and yes it is my married name! I know, I know :). I had to be sure it was real love before I would commit to a name like that! Love you hun!

So as you can imagine, to spell out anything for a project with my whole last name, would just be a nightmare. And for the most part we go by Khouang anyway. I am sure you can imagine why!!!

I actually have had these made for a while, before we moved here even, but forgot to ever get them posted.

So here is the skinny!

The blocks were just plain blocks that I got from a local store called The Wood Connection {same place where I have gotten some of my wood letters from}. The letters are also from there. The paper, the metal hardware, some of the ribbon and chip board are from Stampin' Up. This was the Welcome Home Simply Scrappin Kit that got retired from the last catalog. I was sad to see it go! The rest of the ribbon, I got from a local scrapbook store in Draper, All My Memories.

After I painted the blocks and letters, I modge podged the paper to the blocks then added the accessories. Before I attached the letters, I distressed them and the blocks with Chocolate Chip ink and a sponge. I used a glue gun to add the letters on top of the paper. Simple easy and this can be adapted to anything! Seasonal words, names of kids! I am sure you can imagine all the possibilities!

Hope you like!
Happy Stamping Everyone!
