I made one banner that says "It's a Girl" and 2 congratulations banners. The colors are the same as the invitations that I had made for her. I used the New Arrival cartride and I modified the letters scallops on A Child's year using the Cricut design Studio Software. I changed the oval scallops to circle scallops by making the height and the width to be 5 inches each for the pink scallops and 6 inches for the white scallops. I used my Crop-A-Dile to add eyelets and tied the scallops together to form this banner. On the yellow banner, you couldn't really see the yellow letters, so I used green letters instead. The letters were still hard to see from a distance, so I outlined them with green glitter glue and let it dry overnight. If you are interested in a customized banner, I charge $1.00/letter. Just contact me with the details. I do birthdays, baby showers, bridal showers, or whatever you need.
Saturday I'm going over to a friend's house for a Stampin' it Up card making party. It should be a good time. I'm looking forward to learning some new and not so new techniques. I haven't made cards in awhile, so hopefully this will be a good motivator to get me started for the Christmas season. After that I'm going to DownTown Live for a free music concert and to sell some of these crafts. Setting up for craft fairs is getting old, but I need to do it until I can figure out a different way to sell all of this stuff. I don't know what I was thinking when I quit my day job to do this. Don't get me wrong...I love making crafts and I'm so glad that I'm not at my other job, but it is hard to pay the bills when no one buys what I have to offer. Hopefully I do better tommorrow. Next Sautrday I will be down in Bonita at the Sheherd's Fair off the 805 and Bonita road right across from the Union 76 gas station. Sunday after church we will get to see my nephew. My brother-in-law and his family came in to town and we're going to hang out at the beach.
I have the car all packed and ready to go, I just have to get some last minute things together and I'm good to go. Have a great weekend and keep it crafty!!!
