Supplies: Cardstock, mini alphabet stickers, pen, adhesive, date stamp, ink, triangle punch: American Crafts; Patterned paper, chipboard (glitter triangles, hearts), buttons, jewels, paper clip, fabric tag, die cuts (butterfly, leaves, months circle, ticket), sequins, doily, watercolors: Studio Calico; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark
How to: Watercolor in a sunburst pattern using six colors over a white cardstock background, let it dry, and press it flat. Punch triangles from the Lemon Lush line by Studio Calico (daughter company of American Crafts). Spiral the triangles around the layout then sew them in place. Layer die cuts, stickers, tags, a doily, and more in the center, top it with a photo, then keep embellishing with buttons, a little journaling, the date stamped, paper clip, and more. Accent the paper triangles with sequins, jewels, a trio of glitter chipboard triangles, and chipboard hearts.
Supplies: Cardstock, pen, adhesive, punches: American Crafts; Patterned paper, badges, wood buttons, letter stickers, wood veneer number, patterned transparency, enamel dots: Studio Calico; Paint: Americana; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark
How to: Punch triangles, circles, pennants, and squares from the Wanderlust collection by Studio Calico. Again, scraps of paper from any collection will look awesome! Trim the circles and squares in half to make semi-circles and triangles. Adhere the shapes in rows like banners then stitch across the top of each row. Add a large wood veneer number and photo layered on a patterned transparency to the top, center. Place alphabet stickers before the number to complete the title. Embellish the banners with buttons, badges, and enamel dots. Drop white paint across the layout and paint across the bottom edge. Journal over the painted area.
Have an awesome weekend – hope you get some time to make a banner or two or three 🙂
