Not Xyron...But Should Be!

It's Day 2 of the 
NOT XYRON, BUT SHOULD BE
Pinterest inspired collection of projects

**Visit Beth's Blog each day this week for a complete viewing of projects**

My inspiration piece came from Rebecca Cooper's Blog:
St Patrick's Day Bunting

Now, since St. Patrick's Day has all ready passed for this year, I decided to turn
my banner into a good luck charm
For the base of the banner, I used a burlap paper by DCWV and a 3.5"W X 4.5"H banner die
by My Favorite Things.  Next, using my personal cutting machine and Cambria font, I cut
the lettering from a cream cardstock, ran each through the 3" Sticker Maker and then attached
to the center of each burlap panel.  Three of the panel were embellished with a trio
of premade flocked shamrocks that I had on hand, and some felt flowers by Jillibean Soup.


I cut two 3" strips of green ribbon for each panel.  I adhered a High Tack Adhesive Dot
to one end  of the ribbon and then folded in half to form a loop.

The loops were then attached to the back of each panel with another 
High Tack Adhesive Dot.  Just be sure to keep the loops wide enough to accomodate
the ribbon that will be strung through for hanging.
I wanted a nice finish to the banner, so I die-cut a backing for each panel from 
cream cardstock.  I applied adhesive to one side of the die-cuts using the 9" Creative Station
and attached to the back of the burlap paper.

Thanks for joining me today with this Pinterest-Inspired-Creation!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

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.
