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.
