Happy 45th Banner

My parents are celebrating 45 years of marriage this July 2nd. I made this banner for the party my sister and I are having for them. It is hard to see in the full view so below is a close up of each section

I embellished each section individually and differently. I am very pleased with how it turned out.

I used the Pennat die from Stampin Up.

and various other die cuts. The lace doily is a nestability. The letter are also Stampin Up dies.

The flowers and leaves are from I Am Roses. I had a few things that messed up but hopefully no one will notice but me.

I tried to use embellishement that were sybollic of commitment and lasting love through the years.

I added one plain section for a spacer.

I made one huge boo boo. I thought the color for 45 years was ruby...but it is sapphire blue and I was not going to make a new banner. So hopefully no one will be the wiser...oh my!

Fun Altered {Project

I had some old cigar boxes in my craft room and wanted to alter them. This is the first alteration. I love how it turned out. I used My Immortal paper stack.

I used an assortment of embellies on the cover. I Tim Holtz, knob and bookplate, I Am Roses skeleton leaves and flowers, Prima bling, a mini key charm.

I tore pieces of the paper to reveal more Designer paper below and then used more flowers to embellish.

I made a faux leather closure to keep it closed.

You can view a video of this project below. I will post pictures of the mini inside soon.


Father's Day Card

Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dad's out there, this is the card I made for mine. He is the best dad ever. He has always been there for me.

Here is a close up of the embellies. He loves to garden and has always been known for his gardens, both flower and vegetable. I chose to use Botanical garden from Stampin Up for the Design paper. Some skeleton leaves and seam binding.

Father's Day Card Idea

A fun card I made for my dad. I die cut some gears and a bookplate label. Used some screw head brads and mini brads, layered some distressed designer paper on some black cardstock and layered that onto a card base in close to cocoa.

This card went together very quickly and I just love how the distressing turned out.

I can't remember what paper stack the designer paper came from but I think it is Tim Holtz.
