Bossy Scrapbooker

My friend Diana and I decided to Facetime challenge each other to create a project using supplies that we love but don't use often enough.  We had a ton of fun.  This is what I came up with.

Challenge #1: Make a card using: 
-paper from My Minds Eye's Away We Go 6x6 paper pad
-banner dies from My Favorite Things
I ended up using my flip die and adding a Pebbles stamp, Lawn Fawn stamps, Technique Tuesday stamps, Doodlebug buttons, Studio Calico wood vernier shapes, and twine to the mix. 

Challenge #2:  Make a layout using:
-three different pattern papers from My Mind's Eye's Away We Go 6x6 paper pad
-Papertrey Inks Label and Die set

We had a ton of fun challenging each other to do somthing different.  Thanks Di.  I hope we do this again.

Wedding Wall Hanging

It has become a tradition for me to give name wall hangings to couples at weddings and babies at showers.  This time I tried something new and tried the subway art style of using vinyl lettering to make this board.  It turned out really cute.  Basically you paint the board one color, lay down a layer of vinyl, then paint the next color and lay down another layer of vinyl and then paint the entire board a final time.  After it dries, you remove the letters to show the colors underneath.  After I finished I sanded the sign to make it look a little older than it was and added some bling.  It really turned out nice.
