365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

You should be hopping over from Margie: http://bellabugcreations.blogspot.com/, if not you can continue from here and loop around until you come to me again or start from the beginning http://www.alwayscrafting.com/ . Now onto my Christmas Gift Idea:

A Banner For a Child's Room (for My niece Natalie)




For My Gift Idea I decided to actually make a Gift for my sweet adorable niece Natalie. She just had her 1st birthday party last weekend and I was going to make this to give to her for her b-day but I never got around to it. Luckily it hit me...I said hey I can give it to her for christmas LOL! So I wanted to it be bright and cheery since that's how her momma has decorated her room I think mom, dad and baby Natalie or should I say toddler are all going to love it. It's pretty long it's about 8 feet long!! I cut the scallop ovals from A Child's Year, the font is from All Mixed Up and the sweet dancing bears are from Twinkle Toes. The scallops were cut about 9 inches and they bears and font were cut at 6.71 (Gyspy size) the pretty purple glitter ribbon is actually Christmas ribbon From Michael's that is on sale now for 50% off I think this banner maybe cost $1 total to make if I divide it amost multiple projects. This was so easy to make I love making banner it took me about 1 hour or 1 1/2 hours at the most! I plan on making more for my other nieces and nephews and my son too! oh I almost forgot! I cut the circles at around 1 inch from Plantin Schoolbook to put the ribbon through the holes. 

Now for My Blog candy to win these Fiskars Stamps all you have to do is leave me a comment telling me what you are asking Santa to bring you for Christmas! I am asking for Glimmer Mist, and Cricut Cartridges galore LOL! Also, you can be a Follower if my work inspires you, but it's not required. I appreciate all of my new and old blog lovers LOL!


Next on the list is Jess http://myscrapdiary-jess.blogspot.com/ click on the badge to take you there.



Don't forget to return tomorrow 12/11 at 9:00am Eastern Time for a new project and NEW BLOG CANDY

Teela said...

oops forgot to let you know my Christmas list would be for my husband to get back in the ministry. He pastored churches for over 30yrs. then I had brain surgery, and for the past 5 years, we're been trying to regroup from a hard time and since he started teaching/coaching to be w/me and help me, it's time for him to get back behind the pulpit which is his calling.

What a simple but adorable idea for a child. They will love them. I have kind of cheated this year for Christmas - At my house we all share an old PC and I have to use it with my Expression. I have been wanting a laptop for the last few years but Santa never seems to get it for me. This year I convinced him to get an extra one when buying for for my daughter on Black Friday. Thank you Santa (always can use some craft items for my stocking!!)
