Friends With Flair ~ Awesome Banner

Happy Friday! 

Friday is the day I link up to Friends with Flair sponsored by the Unity Stamp Company. 

I may not be creating much during this tax season...but so far I'm creating at least once a week!

When I was searching through my Unity stamps to see which one I wanted to ink up, I came across this itty bitty...

When a quick scroll through my pinterest board found this lovely card...I'd found my match!

And it didn't hurt that it is a great use for my burgeoning pile of scraps...

I cut nine 3/4" strips, used this tutorial to trim the ends, inked the edges, and glued them on! The sentiment fit beautifully along the bottom, then a quick ribbon knot and I was done. I'll be making quite a few more of these cards, that's for sure!

Curling the edges of the banners adds some interest, but it still fits in an envelope easily.

  •  cardstock: stash
  • patterned paper: BasicGrey (sweet threads)
  • stamp: Unity Itty Bitty: You Did It
  • ink: Ranger Distress Ink (walnut stain)
  • ribbon: The Paper Studio

Thank you so much for stopping by!

I Love You ~ children's valentines

I had so much fun making Valentine cards this year...and to top it off...I actually mailed them!!!

I did end up using some that I had made previously and never sent...but I made enough that everyone on my 'list' got a handmade card!

Here are the cards that I made this year...

I think you can tell that I used my Silhouette Cameo for quite a few cards...I'm so loving the capabilities of this machine!

Thanks for looking!
