Decorate Your Home With Stampin Up!

Not into stamping or crafting? Do you like to decorate? Well these products are perfect for you! I'm addicted to HGTV so I'm loving these products too. 

Did you know that you can decorate your home with this wonderful line of products with Stampin Up!
Decor Elements is a companion to our Definitely Decorative home decor series. They are a new line of self adhesive vinyl wall decorations created by the same talented Stampin' Up artists!

Here are some ideas on how you can use these products. Look at these cute vinyl circles used to decorate a child's room.

They are easy to apply to your walls....and the best part, they are also easy to remove. Talk about a great way to personalize your own space, and change it when you want! It's also perfect for those of you who rent and can't paint or decorate your walls! This is a GREAT alternative! 

This vinyl is also great for gift ideas. Look at how it transformed this candy jar.

Our stylish Décor Elements self-adhesive vinyl art provides a unique decorating experience for walls, mirrors, windows, and other smooth surfaces.  You can also use these decor products for your kitchen. 

Look at how an ordinary pitcher was transformed using the White Upsy Daisy Decor Elements.
Décor Elements makes your home a beautiful representation of your style. And it's inexpensive compared to painting, framing art, or buying new furniture!

To see the Definitely Decorative product catalog for these products click HERE
And don't forget that all purchases made in August qualify for the prize drawing. To see details of this month's giveaway click HERE.
