I want to share another project that I was able to complete at the Paradise Scrapbook Boutique “Holiday Workshop” back in November . . . this JOY banner kit was created by the most talented Christie . . .
Christie was not able to attend the workshop as she lives in Idaho . . . and even though she is very very very busy helping to prepare her sister’s upcoming wedding (December 5th) and getting her design projects out for Graphic 45 (she’s a member of the Graphic 45 design team) . . . Christie still found time to create a number of really cute kits, of which this banner was one of . . .
I do have to say one thing . . . no matter how hard I try to copy the original item exactly something always happens along the way and I end up making little personal changes to the design (sounds so much better than “mistake”) . . . in this case I thought that I would add just a touch of glitter glue around the edge of each letter and they looked really cute and I was very careful on getting each letter to my car without smudging the wet glitter . . . what I didn’t count on while driving home was the car in front of me coming to a sudden stop to make a left turn and when I slammed on the brakes my purse fell on the letters . . . sooooooooo when I got home I covered each letter glitter glue . . . I also didn’t punch the holes correctly (there is only suppose to be 1 hole on each side of the circle cut out) . . . soooooooooo each of my circles has holes going completely around them . . . even with all these “personal changes” the banner is turned out cute . . . it is hanging in my smaller office at work and everyone who sees it, wants it . . . so again thank you Christie for sharing your wonderful talent with us . . . BTW . . . the paper that Christie chose to use is from BoBunny’s St. Nick paper line . . .
Well that’s all for now, thanks for stopping by . . .
Do you believe in magic??? I DO!!!!! . . . I DO!!!!!
Back on November 21st I was fortunate in being able to attend the holiday gift workshop at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique where a number of beautiful kits were created by four extremely talented women . . . I have been dying to share the treasures with you that I was able to make but in keeping with the holiday spirit I decided to wait until December 1st . . . welllllllll it’s almost December 1st and I just can’t wait any longer (I also don’t think that I will be able to stay awake much longer) . . .
The first treasure I want to share with you is this beautiful vintage antique bottle . . . the creator of this kit was Deb (sister to the owner of PSB) and she shared with us (from her personal collection) a number of ribbons, glitters, vintage do-da’s, sayings and different sized old bottles for us to create are own little treasures . . . it was MAGIC! . . . you can see more of Deb’s vintage antique bottle creations at the PSB website and find out who inspired her . . .
Thank you so much Deb for sharing all your “MAGIC” with us . . . it was great seeing you again and I can’t wait for your next trip up to “Paradise” . . .
In the next few days I will be sharing more “treasures” that I have been able to create from this workshop . . . in the meantime thanks for stopping by . . .
