Doily Banner

January 6, 2012

Happy Friday everyone. First of all, thank you for all the sweet comments on my last post. I am truly blessed with such wonderful friends, in life and online :)

I've been putting the finishing touches on my craft room/office this week, trying to get it all organized. My craft room is finally starting to look like a craft room instead of a junk room. But it needed some decorations.

When I was in Utah over the holiday, I made this fun doily Valentine's Day banner. I know it's a bit early for Valentine's Day, but I didn't really want to decorate for January :)























I used Crate Paper, Paper Heart collection, purchased HERE. For the doilies, I bought a pack of 30 at Dollar Tree and sewed 3 together, to make them more sturdy. I used a lot of the chipboard elements and glossy accents to give the pieces a little shine.

For the "Be My Valentine" banner, I misted some white cardstock with colors of pink, red and white. Then I cut out the letters on my Silhouette SD,  using the free font, Blackout, (found via Lisa T.).


































I kinda stuck with a circles and squares concept to keep the design uniform. Crate's large amount of chipboard shapes, made it super easy. My favorite one is the conversation hearts + love letter. That was the first one I made :)

Have a great weekend!
XOXO,
Holly & Co.

The "Be My Valentine" letters were a nice touch! I haven't hung mine up yet. I have to find a good spot for them first. :)
