Banner of Love

I just love banners.
I'm so glad that someone decided to
bring them into the forefront of crafting!  I have made
banners for myself and to sell...can't get enough of 'em!
When I received my box of goodies for designing with 
I quickly jotted down the idea for a sweet banner
for Sydnee's room!

After painting the Maya Road scalloped banners in a 
bright candy pink, I distressed the chipboard with a bit of 
walnut ink.  The triangle portion of the banner was covered in 
patterned papers by My Mind's Eye and then embellished with all sorts 
of yummy goodies!

I love these scalloped dies by Lifestyle Crafts...they work with 
all sorts of die-cutting machines...and who doesn't love doilies?!?
One of my very favorite aspects of crafting is digging waaay back in your
stash and coming up with some gems that you'd forgotten the glitter
alphas by K & CO :)

Fun little 3-D Stickers by K&CO and puffy 
dimensional stickers by Martha Stewart, matched the papers perfectly.
Each panel was outlined in a shabby silver tinsel trim!

You must get some of these!  I'm in love with these 3-D Acrylic Flowers
from PRO 31...they have tons of colors and an 
assortment of shapes on hand.

And while you're at it, you must have some of the 
beautiful Wheat Sprays...and what's not to love about
a dear white dove?  They offer small and large sizes.  Did you know
that you can alter the color by adding alcohol inks?  That's a pretty cool fact :)

For hanging, I used the ring that came with the chipboard album 
and decorated them with satin and grosgrain ribbons from PRO 31 DESIGNS
Open a standard paper clip and hook one end through the ring and attach
the other end to whatever you'd like to hang it from.To attach all of the banners together, I used a length of
blue Rose and Sequin Trim and Fabri-Tac. 

Let me know if you have any questions about this project.
I know that photos can be a little deceiving about dimension and those
little details...I'll be happy to share.
Glad to see you today...I appreciate you coming by!

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
