Simon Says Stamp January Haul

Hi Everyone.
Today I'm sharing my January Haul Video.
{Items I purchased are linked below at the end of this blog post}

I've been wanting the Vagabond for a very long time and had wanted it for Christmas, but the best price I've been able to find was on Amazon and it was always out of stock. Last week when stalking Amazon for the machine, I was happy to see it was back in stock. So I scooped it up and had Scott get if for me as an early Valentine's Day present. I've used it a few times already and I'm in love. If you want to see a video on how to use it with all type of dies, just leave a comment below :)

Enjoy :)

Valentine's Day Banner (Video)

Hi Everyone,
Happy Tuesday :) I hope you had a great long weekend.
Today I have a how to video on a Valentine's Day banner. I had so much fun making the one for my niece, I needed to make one for Valentine's day.  I love how it turned out and have it hanging right about my workspace. I'm going to need to make banners for all the holidays now :)

Just a side note. If you should get two emails on today's post...please be patient, I'm in the works of switching over to a free emailing service rather than paying each month. It should all work out in the next few days. If you recently subscribed to receive emails on my current posts (meaning the last few months), please click the Subscribe button up top or on the side so you can stay updated. This is the new service I will be using from now on.

Thanks and have a great day

Baby Banner

Hi Everyone,
Well I'm very happy to report that Baby Riley is here. My niece went into the hospital this morning and Riley was born at 2:05 this afternoon. I posted some pictures on Facebook and Instagram if you want to check them out. Riley is beautiful and Breanna (Mom) is doing well and Riley's dad is very proud.

As soon as I found out Bree was heading to the hospital I said...get yourself home and get working on that banner. I left work, picked up Ethan at school at 2:30 and went right to finishing up the banner. My niece loved it :) Makes me happy :)

Here are a few photos of the banner. The supplies are linked at the end of this blog post to multiple sources so you can shop your favorite stores.

 I used my Lawn Fawn Stitched Party Banner Die to die cut canvas that I picked up at Joann's. For the edges of the canvas I used some Multi Medium Matte to keep the ends of fraying. It worked well.

As a layer on the banners I die cut another banner from the LF die set using paper from the Crate Paper Open Book collection. I then layered the stitched circle also from the LF collection and die cut the letters for Riley. I used two shades of pink to make the letters stand out more on the banners. For a finishing touch (and a way to find the holes on the smaller banner piece) I added some white flowers I have in my stash.

Now I'm wanting to make a Valentine's banner for my craft room.
I hope you all have a great weekend.  I may be back tomorrow with my January Haul Video :) photo ScreenShot2014-09-16at65934AM_zps19865182.png
