Hey peeps! It’s Sunday, and that means Paper Players time! This week, Anne Marie has a fun challenge for us:
What to do, what to do? Fall is probably my favorite season, so there were lots of ideas swirling in my head, but my time was limited! I just got the Perfect Pennants die through my Great Rewards redemption, so I thought I would use the pennants to make a fall banner:
It’s always a challenge to photograph large projects like this! The main banners are cut from Tangerine Tango and embossed with the Woodgrain EF. I added layers of the DP from the Sweater Weather pack, then stamped the Morning Post Alphabet in Early Espresso and added some mats in Early Espresso and Sahara Sand. A few leaves diecut from the same DP using the Autumn Accents die were placed strategically along my burlap trim. All the elements were adhered with brads for easy placement. Finally, I added “happy”, using A Fitting Occasion and A Dozen Thoughts. Here’s a little closer view:
I wish you could get a better look at this…sorry! If you have any questions, please feel free to email me! I am happy with the results of this….it was fun to make and since I have it in full view on the mantel, I heard Cassidy spelling out the letters to John, and he was telling her what it spelled!!!
Now, I hope this, as well as the wonderful projects the other designers created this week, will inspire you to make a fall-themed project! And speaking of other designers, we are thrilled to have Sandy Mathis joining us on our team! She is a sweetie and is consistently challenging me as she raises the creative bar for our team! Check out all the designs at the Paper Players blog!
I got Cassidy water colors for her second birthday, but she wasn’t quite ready. She is LOVING it now! She asks to paint a couple times a day!
Enjoy your day!
