Hello! Christi here from Scrapping For Tranquility I have the honor of being the first ever Guest Designer for Fotobella, for the whole month of September! How exciting is that?
I had the opportunity to work with the yummy Bo Bunny Dreams of Autumn Paper Collection this month! Wow is this a beautiful collection! It has coordinating Bo Bunny Dreams of Autumn Bonus Collection and Bo Bunny Dreams of Autumn Double Dot Paper Collection to really make it stretch your projects even further!
Without further ado here is what I made:
I made a fall banner for my daughter, Larrisa to hang on her front door .
I started with Chipboard Sheets and cut them into 6 X 6 size. I picked what beautiful piece of cardstock I wanted out of the Bo Bunny Dreams of Autumn Paper Collection I wanted. I chose the beautiful brown printed side of the Noteworthy piece. It has these gorgeous swirls that make it so distinctive. I taped it down onto my Chipboard Sheets with 1/8 Double Sided Scor Tape . Making it seem a little more distressed looking I used a Kaisercraft Mini Ink Pad in Bark to all the edges of the Chipboard and the cardstock. I then cut out a scalloped circle at 5.25 inches, a rosette pattern at 5 inches and a round circle at 3 inches from Solid Core Cardstock on my Silhouette Cameo 3.
Taping my scalloped circle , rosette, and plain circle down with the 1/8 Double Sided Scor Tape, I then fitted these Scarlett Leaves -Prima Marketing behind the plain round circle in a 2 and 1 pattern. I then went back to the Cameo to cut out my F-A-L-L Letters in the font I thought looked the best.
Taping the letters down again with the 1/8 Double Sided Scor Tape, I really was looking to "bling it up!" LOL .
I decided it needed Prima Marketing-Amber Moon-Say it in Crystals! These are just too stunning to leave off! The pictures just do NOT do them justice! They just shine and give the right glam it needed! I added 3 crystals on 2 of the corners , one top corner and one bottom corner of each banner. I still wanted a little more bling so finishing the bling up , I added 3 dots of Champagne Colored Rangers Stickles to each Banner. I think that was the finishing touch.
To tie the banner together, I used some Burnt orange Ribbon I had in my stash to tie it all together.
I hope you enjoyed my first project as, September's Fotobella Guest Designer, as I did designing for you!
I hope you find some Tranquility in your Scrapping!
