Scraplifting to a Card

Banners have been a big thing for a couple of years at least.  Lately, I've seen people making banners on their scrapbook pages from a random assortment of tags, punched items, die cuts, flowers, pretty much anything you can hang on a string. I love this affect.  I lifted the idea for my card.  Here is a great page in the Two Peas gallery from brianaj that illustrates the effect:  2P's Gallery Page

To make my garland, I used Doodlebug twine and strung on two Cricut cut tags, a scallop punch circle and a heart punch.  On the tags I added another heart and a little trim.  Inking the edges with the same fushia colored ink brought everything together.

Speaking of great ideas in our crafting world, the Cricut magazine for January has many and I have it thanks to the giveaway on Dell's blog.  Thanks, Dell!  There is an adorable little robot card in the magazine that I'd love to do Dillon's birthday in a couple of months.  Boy cards are challenging for me and I think this one is ideal.

In other news, my husband and I went van shopping yesterday.  We narrowed the choice to two.  He likes one and I like another.  Oh well, it wasn't like I was going to pick one on the first outing.  I don't buy a pair so shoes without looking at them at least three times.  So, more research...

Thanks for visiting today!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
