Fall Banner *Dirty Scraps Blog Hop*

Happy Fall Ya'll!!


Welcome to the Dirty Scraps blog hop!!


If you came from Laura's blog, you are on the right track! If you didn't, you might want to start at the beginning (Dirty Scraps Challenge Blog) and follow through so you can check out *ALL* of the awesomeness on the Dirty Scrapper’s blogs without missing anyone. Don't forget to comment and follow all of the blogs for a chance to win the prizes!

I created a fun fall banner - of course with a hinted at southern accent since I have readily adapted it living in the south. ;) I used TONS of fun product on this banner including mists, bling, burlap & even a cinnamon stick!







This banner was lots of fun and adds a little fall feel to my fireplace (which is in my scraproom... jealous, eh?!). I love the colors of fall, so this project went together super easy.

I am a bit backwards of a scrapper, but for this project you will definitely need to mist your chipboard album first. From there I used my Helmar 450 to add embellishment groupings to each of my pieces. After that I added my FALL letters (using Basic Grey Chipboard Letters as templates). Then I added my thickers (happy & ya'll) and continued embellishing each piece until I was happy with the results. I punched holes with my Crop-o-Dile Big Bite, tied in some twine for an added fall feel and all was done!
Supplies: Nikki Sivils Owl Chipboard Album, Imaginisce Flowers, Bazzill Flowers, Prima Crystals, American Crafts Felt Pieces & Thickers, Burlap Scraps, Cinnamon Stick, Joann's Stick Pin, K&Co Gems, Kaiser Craft Pearls, Fancy Pants Paper, Misc. Buttons, Twine and Various Mists (including some I made).


Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoyed my fall banner as much as I do!


Now, I know you want to qualify for the Momenta Prize I am giving away, but in order to do that you must follow my blog & comment (on this post). This prize is full of Momenta goodness, shimmer and shine! Definitely a fun piece of scrappy mail one lucky winner will receive! The winner will be announced early next week, so be sure to check back then.



And don't forget the rest of the Dirty Scraps blog hop... from here you should head over to Amy's Blog where I know you are in for a treat!!
