Oh Boy Banner!

DSC_7569

Nothing gets me more excited that making party decor! Last weekend I had the honor to host one a shower for a dear and close friend.  Since it was at our beloved local Mexican restaurant, I kept the decor low key and simple (which on a side note was such a brilliant idea on my part. I usually spend days prepping for hosting parties to only have to clean again the minute the guests leave and the costs were about the same even after feeding the masses a Mexican buffet!). Anyway, my decor was simple and fun and fit the bill perfectly!

In making the banner, I kind of pulled out the kitchen sink of supplies starting with wood banner pennants I scored from Pick Your Plum and then I found my new love in paper lines, Adornit – Rough and Tough! Adding some clothesline, material burlap, ribbon and embellishing the woodcuts from Adornit and PYP with Heidi Swapp Color Shine and Globecraft and Piccolo Gels.  I cut the lettering with my Cricut using Platin Schoolhouse and ran those and all my layers (yes even the burlap and ribbons) through my 5 inch Creative Station adhesive machine from Xyron.

I love when banners come together as easy as this one! It was a hit and a cherished gift for the soon-to-be family of three!

FCCB April Fool’s Cricut Crawl!

FCCB_DT_btn

Happy April Fools Day!  If you have just come from Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Crawl, you are in the right place!  Today’s theme is centered around jokes.  Since yesterday was the honorary day for Mr. Easter Bunny, I felt this Easter card I made was a good match.  Chocolate bunnies run rampant this time of year, so finding them missing appendages is not uncommon and this card drives that humors point on.  DSC_6167

All I did was pull out my trusty Create a Critter 2 and cut the bunny at 3 inches.  I then just trimmed one of the bunnies ears to look like a bite was taken out of it.  The jokes were just a Word font.  I inked the edges and used paper from Recollections designer paper. I added some twine from the Twinery, Candi and googly eyes.
