Today for Monday Craft Madness I couldn’t help myself in making more than one thing. The Teresa Collins She Said Collection to just had to much wonderfulness to choose one creation. I reached for some awesome pictures of the super cute Jovi and her 1st birthday to create two of my projects. I couldn’t even stop there, I had to make some cards as well….. So today’s theme is:
Create anything you love; cards, banners, decor piece, layouts – whatever your heart desires. Here’s what I created:
I used chalkboard card bases from American Crafts for the cards, it allowed me to stretch out this collection kit even further. I didn’t have to create my own bases and I only use bits of the papers and the embellishments to create these cards. Here’s a closer look:
This is one of my favorite photos from Jovi’s 1st year photo shoot. She wasn’t sure about the party hat and the cake at first, but when she realized how the cake tasted, she dove in and loved it. The pure joy on her face made me want to create a wall hanging to highlight her joy. If only I could get away with eating cake this way.
The banner was super fun and quick to make. I used a kraft banner base from American crafts and again I was able to just use bits of my beautiful patterned papers. The banner took less than an hour once I chose the items I wanted to include. Now Jovi’s mom has it hanging in her cubicle at the office and we get to look at it every day. Check out some close ups of the banner pieces:
I really had fun with this collection, I’ve seen it many times but breathing new life into it was a blast. Don’t write off old collections in your stash, you can use them to create beautiful things for your beautiful life.
