Always on the lookout for a cute banner idea, when I sat beside my friend Christa while she was making a flower banner for her mom-I was inspired! This 2 sided floral beauty is perfect for hanging anyplace that needs a little cuteness on both sides! Mine is hanging in the front window of Scraps of Love along with lots of other red white and blue lovely-ness!!!
Super easy to create, I started with lots of red white and blue cardstock, Tim Holtz tattered flower die, 3 in 1 adhesive, some bling and a length of bakers twine.
Looking for a big impact party decoration with a small price tag? Paper bag stars are the way to go! These too are super easy and quick! Once you make one, you are hooked!
Stitches of Love with Ann
Welcome to something brand new at Scraps of Love, a monthly stitching workshop. We will gather together to stitch one of the gorgeous embroidery patterns from Adornit (available for purchase in the store) or a favorite stitching project you are currently working on. Each month, I will design and share a charming wool applique kit that we can work on together, or you can take home to stitch on your own. Each month’s kit will be a new design on a new banner panel, which in the end, will all work together to create a lovely folky wool applique garland. Bring to class, a favorite embroidery needle, your floss collection, small sharp scissors. Remember this workshop is $10 or free with a $15 purchase.
I like to challenge myself to use a product in a different way-this layout was created using Bo Bunny's Firecracker collection, typically a 4th of July selection, but I thought it was the perfect choice for this photo of Chris' daughters in their turnout/bunker gear. The colors and patterns lent themselves to highlighting the jackets and helmets. Look for this layout in the 4th of July section at Scraps of Love, of course!
Each month in my planner workshop I design a fun make and take to share. This month we created tassels with baker's twine and Tim Holtz charms and images. I AM MADLY IN LOVE WITH THIS BEAUTY dangling from my Carpe Diem planner.
couldn't resist sharing a bit more planner fun! It is so fun to use traditional scrapbook supplies to inspire me, motivate me and keep my life organized!
