Our Prince Baby Boy Banner

I know I have been posting a lot of banners, but this one if my favorite of them all. :) I made it a couple months ago. I love the grungy green, cream, and brown together. 

The papers are Nook and Pantry by Basic Grey, glitter is Pink Paislee, and the crown album is by Nikki Sivils. 

So fun. Hope you like. I am going on a scrapbooking retreat this weekend. Anyway, I will be spending National Scrapbook day with friends. I hope my kiddos are good for my hubby... (Sort of!) What are your plans?

Berry Sweet Chipboard Banner

I made this banner last week using October Afternoon papers. It has a soft summery look to it. 

I layered with Prima Flowers and leaves along the tops. I got to use the new Maya Resist on the "berry"letters in white. Super easy, and the fumes weren't too bad.  

I know it's hard to tell, but this is fabulous art glitter on the "sweet" letters. I want the whole set, but they're $9 a jar. Sigh. :) 

Well, there's my idea for the strawberry album. I wish I'd had pictures of my kids at a strawberry patch to make it a mini-album. The owner, Carolyn, laughed at me doing another banner so I think this will be it for a while. (Although I think I have one more I made months ago I never got around to posting so don't hold me to it!) :) 

Happy Scrapping. Dee2

Burlap, Glitter, and Flowers oh my

I put this together in a Lisa Pace class yesterday. It was so much fun. I got to sit next to some of my favorite girlfriends, and play with glitter! :)

Don't you love the burlap? Messy, but adds so much right texture and color. The class used pink and silver, but I wanted to do my favorites in green, brown, and yellow. Spring! :) 

There was a tiny bit of complaining by me as I threaded the buttons. Ouch, my hands were tired. 

Inside front cover.

One of the canvas envelopes. We added doilies, burlap, and milk bottlecaps. I love the vintage look with the pop of yellow ribbon. 

I added a bit of burlap and stitched a small piece of ribbon to the back. I wish I'd stitched it onto the paper, and then just glued it on, but I actually stitched all the way through the canvas. Haha. 

Um, have I mentioned how much I LOVE these pale yellow blossoms by Prima? SIIIIIGH. I think I will go back for more. 

I finished the back of this envelope with my left over supplies. The flower is made from a brown paper lunch sack I had sitting on the floor. 

Check out Lisa Pace's blog to see what the original looked like HERE. Happy scrapping! DeeDee
