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.

A Good Day for a Wedding

Hi everyone! I am here to finally share the fans (forty of them) I created for my son and now wife’s wedding which was last week. I had found in the Silhouette library a 3D Rosette Flower-Dotted design ID #21879 but it was small so I sized it up to 3 1/2″ in height and 11 1/8 wide and copied pasted another image onto the design area to be printed.
I used the following cardstocks from Canvas Corp to create these fans: Gold & Kraft Diamond, Gold & Kraft Damask and Gold & Kraft Stripe cardstocks.

After folding and gluing both strips of the rosette together (end to end) I had a circle that had to be “pushed” down to create the rosette. I used a hot glue gun to glue a small Kraft cardstock circle to the center. It dries a lot faster so you don’t have to hold it for what seems like forever. Then I repeated the same process on the other side of the rosette.

Since my daughter in law’s colors for the wedding was mint green, Lavender and pink I ran cardstock through my diecut machine to cut out several scalloped circles and then embossed with Brenda Walton’s Floral Tapestry embossing folder

I adhered those to the front and back of each fan. Along with a wood paddle that I purchased at Hobby Lobby.

Here is a small portion of the fans before I boxed them and since them off with my son before the wedding. 🙂

The day of the wedding it rained just a little bit and then cleared up…isn’t rain suppose to be good luck for a wedding? But all in all it was the perfect day for an outdoor wedding. The bride was beautiful and all the decorations and special touches truly made this a day to remember. Plus I gained a daughter I never had too. 🙂

If you have any questions about this project please let me know. 
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Friday is awesome and enjoy creating!

Wedding Tea Cup and Robin’s Nest Design Team News

Hi everyone! I’m here to share some exciting new!!! I get to still be a part of the Robin’s Nest Design Team!!! YEAH!!! I am also excited there are some familiar faces coming back  and new ladies that will be sharing their creativeness with everyone. 
Also I would like to share a quick project I created using Robin’s Nest products and the tea cup template from the Layers of Color blog. I sized the tea cup and saucer down 65% and printed it on the backside of the Wedding Swirl Glitter Cardstock. Then I cut it out and adhered it together. I glued a Gina’s Designs Cardstock Doily on top of the saucer before I glued the tea cup on top of it. I printed a vintage wedding couple from Graphic Fairy and fussy cut it out. I added a little tissue inside the tea cup and adhered the wedding couple to it. Next I cut out a saying from the Wedding Cut-Outs Cardstock and inked the edges, cut out a rosette from the White on White Classic Glitter Swirl Cardstock and then adhered to backside of the couple. Then I finished it off with Dew Drops, lace and paper flowers and flowers punched from Peach Glitter Cardstock.

This would make fun table arrangements for a wedding.
