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.

#195 Labor of Love Blog Hop Halloween Banner

Hi everyone welcome to the Labor Of Love Blog Hop hosted by ELLEN and MADISON if you are here from LISA Bit by the Cricut Bug then you are in the right spot! This is a wonderful hop all about making Halloween banners for some very special kids in a Children's Hospital that Ellen works at. Everyone participating in this hop which is 40+ people are ALL going to send there lovely banners to the hospital so the kids can proudly display in their rooms!

Here's a banner I made with some bight neon green and neon orange papers! I cut the banner flag from Birthday Bash, and all of the spooky Halloween shapes are from the Pumpkin Carvings Cricut cart.

Here's so close-ups of the banner each flag is 7 inches long, the entire banner is 4.5 feet long. I added a spiderweb border to each flag with my new Martha Stewart Spiderweb punch. I hung them all on black & White twine and inked up each banner with Black distress ink.

Blog Candy!!! I am giving away 1- Crafty Sprouts "ARE YOU READY TO ROCK" stamp sets to ONE lucky follower who leaves me a comment on my post #193 here I will announce a winner on Monday Sept. 12th! Good luck!!
