Happy Thursday and 2nd Day of December!!
Today, I’ve been asked to do a guest appearance on Erin Lee Creative’s Blog!
Erin, is a bloggy friend of mine, and a designer for Pink by Design stamps– She is a sweet, fun girl! It is also her birthday week–which is why she’s asked me to guest design for her…she is doing her own “favorite things” on her blog!
So, Happy Birthday Erin– we all think you are AMAZING! Erin has a FUN Pink by Design Giveaway on her blog, so be sure to check it out!
Erin didn’t ask me to do anything in specific–so, I thought I’d try my hand at my very first Banner!
I have been itching to do a banner since I saw the AMAZING Banner HOP that was hosted by Ruthie at September Ninth, and I’ve FINALLY made one!I used the Birthday Bash Cartridge to cut both banner pieces out- using the Music Sheet Paper, and the Red Glittery Paper from the Homemade Christmas stack. Then I cut 3 inch scalloped circles using the Stock Imagine Images, using green paper and the Cut only feature. (Yep, I had both machines going at once–it was awesome!) I trimmed the green scalloped circles in a cream colored lace and then pop dotted the circles onto the banner pieces. I cut the letters out of Gold Shimmery paper from the Christmas Combo Stack, using the Birthday Bash Cartridge, and adhered to the Green Scalloped Circles. Then, I laced Red and Green Twine through the holes, and behind the banner pieces. I used the same twine to make 2 bows for the ends of the banner! 🙂 I love how it turned out, and it looks so sweet and festive above our fireplace!
Here is a closeup of the papers I used… 🙂 I could either get the red paper to show up nicely or the music paper to show up nicely–but, not both at the same time!
and since I love, love, love the paper I used in this project– I wanted to do another one of my Favorite Things today! 🙂
I love me some DCWV paper–who doesn’t?
I have so many of their stacks–my husband calls it a DCWV addiction–I’ve actually called him from Joann’s to have him check which stacks I have 😉
Anyway– I could NEVER leave DCWV off of my list of favorite things!!
So, I will be giving away a DCWV Christmas Stack to one lucky commenter!
And, don’t forget you still have one day to enter for the Letter Art Favorite thing! 🙂
Please comment below telling me one of your favorite Christmas traditions!!
