ETA:  The banner was made using the tutorial from Flutter by atomicbutterfly here.  Thank you so much Kelly Lunceford.  I know I will be making many more.


Welcome to my blog.  How have you all been?  I am finally back in action.  I know, what has been wrong with me.  I kept making trips to the stores trying to find supplies for this banner, mainly paint and chipboard letters.  Turns out there isn't a craft store, that I know of, in Rapid City that carries Making Memories paint (is it only sold online?).  Also, silly me forgot that I had bought a whole box full of chipboard EVERYTHING from creative memories a LONG time ago.  So I bought some chipboard letters for no good reason.  I guess I get to make another banner though  :D

I took several pictures to show you what it really looks like.  I used paper from Hobby Lobby "The Paper Studio".  I just love the vintage feel of all the paper patterns.  The letters were painted with acrylic pain and since I didn't have glitter I used embossing powder.  After the glue dried I decided to see how it would work if I did emboss the powder (I didn't actually intend on doing that since I wasn't sure how it was to affect the paint).  I love hwo it turned out.  The cameo is a button I found at Michael's a long time ago.

I love this one because of the kraft butterfly.  My older sister cut this butterfly out for me using her silhouette.  Man, I cannot wait to have one of my own.

This is to show off all the glitter madness.  I just love it.  Not too much glitter but just enough to make it fun and exciting.
I hope you all have fun and exciting plans for the weekend.  We are actually going to be jammed back with activities all week.
Thanks for stopping by!!!
