Hello crafters and stampers! I am super excited to share with you today this simple D.I.Y. Easter Banner to decorate your home. This is very easy to put together and you can create multiples to decorate your mantle or any room in your house.
I am showcasing the Easter peeps dies and Happy Easter Script sentiment dies by Kat Scrappiness and the Dogwood Flower Wreath die by Gina Marie Designs. They are all available at the shop. Here’s the photo:
I will keep this blog post short because I have a process video for you below. I have also listed and linked the supplies I have used. I hope you like it and got inspired. Happy crafting!
I wanted to make a cute project for my Halloween in July challenge and decided to use an empty candle jar to create a diorama. I used my Magnolia Doohickey big house and small house dies, Lawn Fawn Happy Haunting stamp set and its coordinating dies with Lawn Fawn Sweater Weather dies. It turned out so cute.
Hello and Welcome to the Start of the Summer Design Team Showcase Blog Hop created by the JessicaLynnOriginal June 2015 – January 2016 Design Team! I am pleased to announce that I am one of the designers for JessicaLynnOriginal.Com.
Today we are featuring projects using the Brentwood at the Beach Digi Stamp that really showcase and introduce our talented design team members! This fun stamp captures that summer vacation and can be used in many ways. This card kind of reminds me of my son when we were on a holiday in The Maldives. He loves surfing and scuba diving but most importantly, he loves to just hang out by the shore, collect shells and play with hermit crabs. Put your feet up and grab a cool drink to sip as you travel along the hop, getting inspired by the different takes from each of our designers. If you are coming from Jessica’s blog, then you’re in the right place.
Here is the card:

I decided to repurpose an old grapevine wreath. I gave it some major TLC by cleaning it first and spray-painting it white to make it look new again.
This is a very cute, easy and inexpensive project to make that will last from Halloween to Thanksgiving. Your children or grandchildren will love this. You can also make this is a centerpiece for your table or your office.
