Springtime Banner

I apologize in advance to my blogger friends up north or anywhere else that is very cold right now, but here in Florida, it is absolutely beautiful. Cool mornings and gorgeous sunny afternoons. It already feels like Spring! (Don't hate me. Believe me, it'll be sweltering hot here in no time while the rest of you are having a cool Spring and pleasant Summer). 

With that feeling of Spring in the air, and the new Lucy paper pack from Close To My Heart, I thought it would be nice to create a Springtime Banner to hang in my home. (This is also a workshop I'm hosting on Feb. 26th. Kits will be available if I don't fill the 12 spots, so stay tuned.)



The banner starts with Close To My Heart's new My Creations® Mini Banner, and if you use all the pennants in the kit like I did, this banner spans the length of an average door. (Be sure to click on this photo to get a closer look.)




Included in the workshop are these sweet embellishments called Bitty Buds Assortment. These are self adhesives flowers in two sizes in two shades of pink and also soft gray fluffy flowers too. Something else new to Close To My Heart is Color-Ready Seam Binding Ribbon. 10 yards to a spool for only $6.95 and because it's white you can spritz it, ink it and make it any color you like. Guests at the workshop will receive a little over a yard for this project.




In addition, guests will also receive a set of Notable Alphabet Dimensional Elements chipboard letters. My banner reads "Be Happy" but they will get to choose any title they like. And because this alphabet matches the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge alphabet, it makes quick work out of decorating the letters using some of the Lucy papers. Guests will go home with lots of extra Dimensional Elements letters to use on other projects. 


Workshop fee is $30.
If any kits are available, they will be $35 plus shipping.



Thanks for stopping in to check me out today. I hope you have a beautiful day!
