Well, I think many you have seen this from nice notes people have sent me but... I'm one of the top 20 Paper Crafts Gallery Idol finalists this year. :)
I actually debated long and hard if I wanted to enter again given my new crazy schedule. However, I figured what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. And if I get into the program I want, then life is only going to get more hectic. If I don't... well some fun paper crafting goodies are surely a nice consolation prize (and will help me get over my rejection).
That and everyone needs a study break...
So here we are. I love banners. They make me happy.
I made this card during graduation weekend...the only card I managed to squeeze in that weekend with all the other festivities. I promised the hubs that I'd keep my craft area clean so I went with a super simple card with minimal scraps.
For the banners, I cut 3 strips of patterned paper and then diagonally cut them to create the banners. If you're careful about it, each piece you cut (sans the ends) go right into the card.
I love using the thin sentiments from round and round set from PTI. It's the perfect length and this time I curved it and stamped it 3 times for 3 banner strips.
To emphasize the thanks (and cos I realize that some people don't have eyes as sharp as mine), I stamped a much larger "Thank You".
Ok, that's all from me today. Gotta go prep for some Memorial Day BBQs, study some more, and well, clean....
Have a great weekend and for my US friends, have a great long weekend.
