Oakland is One Birthday Banner

Hi everyone! I’m back this week with a banner I created for my grandson’s first birthday using Momenta stickers and cardstock! My grandson actually turned one on the 3rd but with my son and daughter in law moving into a new house they postponed his party until the end of the month so they could have everyone see their house and celebrate Oakland’s birthday.


I started by cutting a banner pattern from white paper. The larger banner is 8″x 5 1/8″ and the smaller banner is 6″x 4 1/4″. I cut a “v” in the bottom of each banner patten. 

I picked and off white and olive color cardstock from the 8″x8″ Gemstones Paper Pad and cut a total of six banners, three of each size, and adhered the smaller on top of the larger banner.
I selected from the Wood Print Sans Serif 4 Inch Stickers and added the letters “O”, “N”, and “E” to each banner.
I used the rest of the off white and yellow cardstock to create the elephant, giraffe and lion diecut. Before cutting I added Adhesive Sheet to the back of the cardstock. Then I cut each of the diecuts with the Freestyle Die Cutting and Embossing Machine and put together before gluing to the banner.
I punched holes on each side of each banner and then strung cording through each hole and cut and tied several ribbons to each end of the banners. And there you have it! I can’t wait to celebrate with my little nugget his first birthday! As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.

Canvas Banner of Love Banner

Hi everyone! I am back to share a banner I created for Canvas Corp’s booth at CHA. I used a variety of canvas shapes as follows: Canvas Pennants, Pocket and Tag to create the bases for a love banner. I spattered and sprayed all of the shapes with the following glimmer mists and glam glitter paints: Cadillac Pink, Wedding Pink and Grandma’s House.

I cut a scalloped circles from Lt Pink Burlap and Pink and Ivory Toile Cardstock to add to the various banner shapes.

I cut the letters LOVE from the Black on Kraft Alpa cardstock. and framed with some of the letters with Pink Lemonade Thickstock and a heart was cut from the Pink Lemonade for the center banner too.

I adhered a Vintage Brass Heart along with pink thread, button and dew drop to the corner of the heart.

On a couple of the banners I used White Mini Bags in a fun way to frame some of the letters along with Lace, thread and Jute.

The medallions for some of the banners are cut from Pink and Ivory Ribbon Stripe cardstock which I punched out and added Pink Lemonade Thickstock circles to the centers along with a button and some Jute.
When all the banners where finished I spaced and clipped with a Mini Lt. Pink Clothes Pin to Waxed Cotton White Cord. There you have it a simple Valentine’s Day banner.
Here are a couple of photos that my friend Jennifer took of my banner being displayed in Canvas Corps booth.

If you have any questions about how this banner was made and put together please let me know.

Welcome Baby

Hi everyone!I’m here to share this adorable house container I created for a baby shower. I used Eileen Hull’s Gift Card Holder, House and the Box, Square diecuts and the Mat Board Sheets. In the photo below shows how I cut the pieces out except I did cut another house back and I measured, scored and cut a roof too. I got carried away and forgot to take a photos of that. lol 🙂

I used cardstock from Heidi Grace and My Mind’s Eye to cover the outside and inside of the house.

I added hinges to the door so it could be opened and a photo along with birthing info can be added if the parents choose to do so.

The roof I raided my jar or yellow buttons and glued each and everyone to the roof…very time consuming be well worth it.

An inside peek of the house.

I finished off with sequins, buttons, a dew drop, pom pom trim and a little welcome banner. 
If you have any questions please let me know.
Also I am submitting this project for: Eileen Hull’s Art with Heart Challenge and the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #167.

Celebrate Big!

Hi everyone! I’m here to share a quick card I created for the Crafty Card Gallery this month. I cut a 4″x5 1/2″ base from white cardstock. Used scraps of cardstock and scrapbook paper I had laying around, stamped Celebrate Big on a scrap of white cardstock and inked all edges of before adhering to the top of the card. The diecut I received in a swap over a year ago is from Spellbinders but I’m not sure which set it is from??? 
The last thing I added was some sequins and dew drops to the banner and a tiny flower which sequin and dew drop to the corner of the celebrate sign.

This is a very easy peasy card that you can knock out in only a short amount of time. It can be used for a birthday or retirement celebration.

If you have any questions let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope Saturday is wonderful and enjoy creating!!!

You Make my Heart Flutter

Hi! I hope everyone had an awesome Valentine’s Day. Mine was spent in a very cold house with no electricity because of a snow storm that came through the day before. I have determined that I would have never made it as a pioneer because I don’t do roughing it very well. I was so happy that it finally came back on Saturday…three days is way too long!!! The hubby and I wound up going out to eat on Saturday and to see Steep Canyon Rangers perform for our Valentine’s Day presents to each other.
Well, this is the card I created for the February Valentine’s Day challenge over at the Crafty Card Gallery blog.  The card is made out of a 3.5″x6.75″ mini paperbag. I folded the top half of the bag underneath the bottom “flap” and then I cut slightly smaller than the bag scrapbook paper to cover all surfaces.
Next I use the Sizzix Bigz Beautiful Butterflies and the Hearts and Brackets dies to cut out two butterflies and a small hearts. Also I used two dress pins for the butterflies antenna. 

You can add candy, gift card or some other fun treat to the little bag card.

The sentiment I used the computer to print it off.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!!!

Ornament Blog Hop: Wish Snow Globe

Hi everyone! It finally hit me that Christmas is just right around the corner. I have lots of projects and swaps that I’m working on and I’m running out of time…YIKES!!! But I do have this adorable project that I have just finished using a SmoothFoam snowman body and Robin’s Nest products that I would like to share. This snow globe is for the “An Ornament Blog Hop” linky party that The Robin’s Nest and SmoothFoam are hosting. So please be sure to hop on over to the Chattering Robin’s Blog and checkout everyone else’s creations using Robin’s Nest and SmoothFoam product and be sure to become a follower of each blog for a chance to win prizes…now who doesn’t love prizes??? I know I do. 🙂
I used an old Tostitos creamy spinach dip (1 lb. 7 oz.) jar which I had no problem cleaning out. 🙂 The lid I gessoed and once dry painted with turquoise paint and then seal with Mod Podge. Next I gessoed the snowman body twice and then painted white paint. I lightly penciled in eyes and mouth and then painted with black paint. Load pink paint on a brush and “pounce” most of the paint off onto a piece of paper and then “pounce” the rest on the snowman for cheeks. While all of that is drying I took a small piece of sculpey clay and created a “carrot” nose and then I followed the baking directions on the side of the package. Once the nose has baked and cooled adhere it to the snowman. I poked tiny holes and added a bit of glue to the twigs before I added to either side of the body and I glued three dew drops down the front of the body too.  Now comes the fun part…GLITTER!!! I sponged Mod Podge to all of the snowman and then sprinkled glitter all over. Let dry.

Next I cut a 1/8″ strip from AquaMarine Glitter Sorbet Cardstock to make a scarf. Cut to fit around the neck and glue. Now cut four small pieces and curl the ends with a pair of scissors and glue to the side of the neck and add a Pearl Dew Drop to top it off. Then lightly  Mod Podge the scarf and add glitter.

For the hat it needs to be cone shaped. I free handed a pattern and once I got it the size I wanted it I traced it onto a vintage sheet of music and cut out. Now roll up to make a cone and then adhere. Also add tinsel around hat and glue to the head.

Take the lid and adhere a smaller lid to the inside.

Draw a circle slightly bigger than the lib onto felt and cut out. Then adhere to the inside of lid over the smaller lid. Now adhere the snowman to the top of the smaller lid and then sprinkle shaved ice glitter over the felt.

Now screw the “globe” over the snowman, add shear ribbon around bottom and tie off.  Adhere dew drop, button and Winter Glitter Chipboard Snowflakes together. Once dry Mod Podge and sprinkle glitter over the snowflake and then glue to the middle of the bow.

I adhered together a wooden snowflake, medallion (made from AquaMarine Glitter Sorbet Cardstock), Winter Glitter Chipboard Snowflakes, button and jingle bell. Lightly Mod Podge and add glitter. I added a Pearl Dew Drop to the tip of the snowflake “arms” and then glued to the top of the “globe”.

Cut out four banners, Mod Podge, add glitter and let dry. Print the word WISH, cut apart and adhered to the banner. Thread onto baker’s twine alternating between beads and banner. I’m so please with how it turned out!!! I can’t wait to now display it on the mantel along with all my other Christmas decorations.
