Who would have thought that a prickly desert plant would become such a popular design element? Everywhere you look the cactus seems to making an appearance on clothing, home décor, and even DIY crafts. Cacti go hand in hand with the succulent trend that is equally as popular right now and with their geometric shape they translate into a fun design element as well. You may not live anywhere near the desert southwest, but you can still bring cacti into your home and crafts with these cactus themed DIY paper crafting projects.

Do you have a cactus or other succulent in your home?
I started scrapping in 2006 and was quickly addicted!I was an avid scrapper until late summer of 2010 when we started our adoption journey, at that point I was overwhelmed with paperwork (and emotions!) and I had to put something on the back burner in my life but I knew I would eventually come back to it.
We welcomed our daughter home from China in December of 2011 and a few months later I found my groove again and pulled out all of those supplies that had been tucked away.
I started out scrapping again doing traditional layouts, but at the beginning of this year I jumped into Project Life and I love it!
When I’m not scrapping I am usually spending time with our daughters which means library time, going on walks, thrifting (they love it as much as I do!) or watching Kung Fu Panda for the millionth time.I also have an Etsy shop Panda Eight Designs where I sell scrapbooking flair that I design.
