For The Sweeties

I’ve spent a good half of the day yesterday, making a 7-piece chipboard banner for my sweetest god daughters. I felt so good after it was completed! It felt like a great accomplishment to me! *laugh* It was kind of a relaxation therapy for me spending hours creating something I love! 🙂 I’m just so glad it turned out well and well received by my dear friend and of course the sweeties. 😀

I couldn’t hang it up and take photos of the whole piece of banner by itself, so I break it down to several parts of the banner with some close up shots of what I’ve played with on this banner.

I just love the mix of products of papers, chipboard and dimensional stickers, felt puffies, pom pom ribbons, flowers and lots more, all from Echo Park Paper, My Little Shoebox, K&Company, Imaginisce, Pebbles Inc, Prima, Fancy Pants and 7 Gypsies! I chose almost all of the products based on girls theme and they’re absolutely the sweetest I can find! I seriously love them ALL!! I didn’t realize creating little girls projects can be so fun and fulfilling and I’m planning for more in future. 😀

Here’s a part of the completed banner. I covered all the chipboard banner with the new Summer CHA “Victoria Garden” collection from Echo Park Paper. Love ’em! 🙂

And I took individual photos of each and every piece of the 7-piece banner.

The Pebbles dimensional stickers are so adorable! The Prima pom pom ribbons make a nice, bright and colorful border around the chipboard.

The Imaginisce dimensional stickers are to die for especially the little birdie! They really compliment the rest of the products used on this banner really well! <3

I added these wonderful purple word chipboard from K&Comp on the Victoria Garden paper from Echo Park. I also used Martha Stewart border punches on a cardstock to line the top and bottom of the orange journal card paper to add a contrast to this piece of banner.

I am so in love with this yellow fabric and felt flower puffies! It added a nice touch to the banner! Need to get more of them! *laugh*

Ooooooohh…… love the Fancy Pant little birdie chipboard! What is it with me and little birdies! Hahahaha……..

These are the last 2 pieces of the banner! You’ll notice that I lined the border of the last chipboard banner with the same Prima pom pom ribbons I used for the first piece in the earlier photo.

My Little Shoebox came out with a brilliant 3D roll-up flower for their latest collection and it’s so easy to use! Just peel off the pre-cut paper from the sheet and roll them into a flower like I did here! Awesome isn’t it? 😀

Felt puffies and more birdie!! I know I know, I promise these will be the last for this banner! I can’t help it, I just can’t get enough of them! *laugh*

This banner is laden with tons of my favorites goodies I bought from Scraplicious and I’m so glad I made this for the girls! You should see their faces when I gave this banner to them today! It’s priceless! 😀

I’m absolutely burn out but I’m as happy as a little chickie! (where did this come from? lol!)

Hope you’ve had a good weekend so far. I’m going to turn in now as I’m totally shacked out by today’s activities.

    Thanks Gera! They’re sisters, so they live under one roof and they will share the banner! 🙂
