Change of direction!

I love making banners! (can you tell?) I decided to change the direction with this one and make it vertical. I photographed it on my front door but it's paper so I can't leave it there. I'll have to find a place in my home for it because I just LOVE it!!

I used papers from Teresa Collins Designs Welcome Home and Mr. & Mrs Collections. Thanks for stopping by today!

Blessings to you!

A mini...

I don't do a whole lot of "mini books" anymore. I just don't know what the heck to do with them after they are done! :) I created this one for Scrappin' Girlfriends as a store sample. It is very simple. The book and the papers are from Bo Bunny. I just love love love these pictures of Joe and Nate hanging out in the back yard. They make me so happy!  You can click on each of the photos if you want to see the details.
I used the new Shimmerz Pearlz color "Espresso" which is a very dark brown, to distress the edges of the pages.  The stickers are from 7 Gypsies.

Thanks for stopping by today!




I made this banner to hang in my studio. I used Teresa Collins Designs Chic Bebe Girl collection. Love the crowns!

Find your Spahkle!


Oh, Happy Day!

Here is another banner I recently created. I got a Design Team kit from Scrappin' Girlfriends with a Maya Road chipboard album in in and a bunch of these bright colorful Fancy Pants papers. I decided to make it into a cheerful banner instead of a mini book. I used some of the new Shimmerz Pearlz on the letters and flowers. I'm so digging the color "Samrock" which is the most gorgeous shade of green!

Oh, happy day to you!

Banner Happy!

Hey there! I've been a little banner happy lately and have made several of these fun colorful decorations! Here is one that I  made for Scrappin' Girlfriends, my favorite scrapbook store! I used some of the brand new Shimmerz Pearlz paints on them. Love, love, love the opacity and vibrant sparkle of this product!  I used Carrot Top Pearlz on the chipboard letters and some of the flowers and Sunny Side Up Pearlz and Jeni B Bleu Vibez on the other flowers (all flowers from Petaloo!)

I used Graphic 45 On The Boardwalk papers for this banner.  Love this paper collection, so vintage but yet vibrant colors all at the same time!  To tie the banner together I used some beautiful hand dyed silk ribbon from my friend Cece of The Thread Gatherer!  Check out her ribbons and fibers, so gorgeous!

Hope you have a BANNER day filled with blessings!
