Baby Shower Banner

TGIF!! This has been one long week but my work week ended with a bang yesterday..... Let me explain.

Last week we got a call asking if we could help make a banner for a Baby Shower based on a banner he (yes, I said he) saw on Etsy (you can see it "here"). I told him over the phone that I could.

After I saw the banner on Etsy I asked him if I could take some creative direction with his banner.  I knew it was for a baby shower and the theme was butterflies - elegant with a rose pink, sage green and cream. I asked his budget and we agreed on about $25 dollars (he provided the rose paper from another store).

BIGGEST compliment - He loved it so much that instead of paying the $25 he paid $30 - MADE my day!
PLUS, I had the banner on the craft table at the store and got TWO other customers hire me to do banners for them as well....

I love it when a customer puts their trust in me.... What's sad is these pictures do NOT show how elegant and beautiful this banner is in person.... (Yes, I am beep beeping own horn honk honk).

Cricut Cartridges used:
Birthday Bash for Scallop, Circle and Lettering
Indie Art for Butterfly
Flower Shoppe for Roses

Banner was cut at 8", Letters cut at 6" and butterflies were 2" & 1", Flowers were cut at 2" and leaves at 3"

Cricut Flower Shoppe - Flowers

For the last several weeks I have been playing with the Flower Shoppe cartridge trying to come up with 10 unique flowers for a class I am doing. I am so happy with the results.

I am writing up directions for each flower and will post later.

3D Teacup - Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2

I am in love with the new Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 cartridge Cricut came out with but wasn't so excited about going out and buying a new housing for my Cricut to score. I remembered someone posting that you can 'flip' an old blade around in the existing housing and use it to do your scoring. Well, I gave it a try and loved the results....

WARNING: Practice with some old paper that is the same weight as you will be using on your project. I had my pressure up to high and my paper ripped.

In the area?? I will be doing a make-n-take this Wednesday, March 21st at Hearts-n-Crafts between 10:30 and 1pm for $5.

Special thanks to Amy from http://www.scrappingmommy.com for the inspiration...
