Hi, all my crafty friends and family!!!
Here it is Saturday once again and you know what that means, don't you?
That's right . . . it's time for a new challenge over at Hiding in My Craft Room. And this week the theme is "Banners". I just LOVE banners because they can be used for anything from home decor to cards to scrapbook layouts . . . the possibilities are endless!!! So get out your paper, scissors, glue and get craftin'.
This week's sponsor is:
I remember when banners started to become popular a few years ago and I had not made any or used them . . . but when I finally did try them out, I was HOOKED! Now they are one of my favorite "embellishments" for cards, layouts and home decor projects. So for this week's challenge, I did a 2-page layout using banners for the title. Here's how it turned out:
"Curiosity" paper collection by Authentique
"Lemon Juice" cardstock
"Journal" Thickers by Amy Tangerine
I have to admit when I first got this paper collection a couple years ago from CropChocolate, I was a bit hesitant . . . but once I received it, I fell in love with it. The colors worked just perfect with each other and had such a "vintage" feel to them. Plus, as you can see from the layout, there are papers that can be fussy-cut for embellishments like the A-B-Cs, the yellow tags and the nursery rhymes. I used my daughter's initials for the letters on the left page (A-M-C) and the usual A-B-C for the right page. I just love how it all came together . . . now to decide which school pictures I'm going to put on it. :)
Remember, you have one week to get your "banners" project(s) in to be eligible for one of the several prizes Hiding in My Craft Room is giving away. I wonder how many different types of "banners" there will be? Well, I know I can't wait to find out!!!
Till the next time I'm up in the night.
