Happy Monday everyone. I am recovering from a terrible virus this morning. Did you all have a fun National Scrapbook Day on Saturday? Did you get lots of paper crafting in? I hope so!
We had five crafty gals take on our Banners, Buntings, Oh My challenge with some pretty amazing results. I am feeling super inspired to go make something cute myself. I hope you get some great ideas from their projects too.
Here is an amazing little girl's room by Tomi Ann Hill. She decorated this for her "big-girl" as a step up from her baby room. I'll bet that her daughter feels like a princess everytime she walks into this space. Isn't it magical? Tomi Ann used Girl Friday papers to make a paper window valance with a point for each letter in her daughter's name. My girls would love this!
Mandi's project is much more simple, but just perfect for a Mother's Day card. She used Early bird for the card and flower (I love her flower) and paired it with Jolly by Golly for the banner strips hanging down.
This gift box, or should I say Flip-Flop box is such a cute idea. Kimberly Rae created it with Snorkel. I have no idea how she made the box, but I would love to figure it out. It appears that the lid opens by pulling on the toe straps! Too clever!!
I love that Irit Shalom creates these wonderful layouts for our challenges each week. I always need layout inspiration and I've gotten some great ideas from Irit. Her banner and tags are made from Odds and Ends paper.
Savi Ostrozny used Twenty Three to make a fun mini album for her mom for Mother's Day. Am I the only one that hasn't gotten her mother's day gifts finished yet? Savi's banner is made by cutting up the pattern called "Photo Booth". I love cutting up this paper myself, but never thought of making it into a banner. What a great idea!
The winner of this challenge is Irit Shalom. Irit, please email julie at cosmocricket dot com and I'll see to it that you get your prize. And, we have a second winner for the yard of fabric. Congratulations go to Kelly who said, "Such a fun project idea! thanks for the chance to win some of your lovely fabric!" Kelly, do the same as Irit so I can send you this fun print!
Do you guys have a great idea for a challenge. Is there something you have wanted to try, but need some inspiration with? Let us know! We'd love to help you out.
Check back tomorrow to see another idea for re-using old books. I think it's my favorite one yet!
