Birthday Banner

Last Friday night I got together with a few of my girls for some much needed croppin' time!!!! We didn't get a lot of projects completed but we sure did have a blast just being together! You can check out a card that my friend Heather created by clicking here to visit her blog.

Now I would like to share the banner that I worked one with one of my other scrappin' girls, Nickie.  She wanted me to help her make a banner for her son's first birthday party - so after 6 hours and several ideas later, this is what we came up with:

Believe it or not, it took all 5 of us sharing ideas and suggestions before we had a finished product -- but that's the best part about croppin' with your friends!!!!

Supplies Used:

  • CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge (banner shapes and letters)
  • The pumpkin and owl were made from two different cricut cartridges -- (sorry I can't remember which ones)
  • Old CTMH ribbon on the pumpkin stems
  • The owls eyes are wooden buttons with black opaque adhesives


I'm Still Here!!!!

It's been over 2 months since I have posted anything so I thought I would give a quick update and post a few pictures. We had a very busy but wonderful summer - from vacation to summer camp to getting our youngest son ready for his senior year!!! We are n ow going into the 6th week of school, fall has started and football is here - so I think I can settle back into a routine and get some scrappin' done.  I was able to create a banner and make some cards over the summer I just haven;t had time to blog about them until now.

Here is a banner I made for a baby shower:

All supplies from CTMH unless otherwise noted:

  • Art Philosophy Cartridge
  • Pearl Opaque Adhesives
  • Sweet Leaf & Blush Cardstock
  • White Daisy Crocheted Flowers (retired)
  • Flowers spritzed with sweet leaf & blush reinker and pearl paint
  • Sweet Leaf & Blush Ribbon
  • Paisley print B&T (from Michael's)
Here are some cards I made using all retired products - I finally used a set of the Simply Snapshots (Boom-Di-Ada) album pages to make these cards:

I was able to create these 12 cards in less than 1 hour!  I have 2 more sets of the simply snapshots --- maybe I can make some card sets for gifts!!!
