The Sharing from the Heart Blog Hop is a mixture of Close to My Heart consultants and customers who have come together to share their projects.  The hop makes a circle so if you have started here, just continue until you make your way back.  If you are coming from Adeline’s Blog, then you are on the right path.

This month’s theme choices were: SOTM, Valentine, or Winter.  I chose Valentine’s.

Pin It

Supplies used are all CTMH: Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, My Creations Banner, Sweetheart Paper Pack, Silver Brads, Mad About You stamp set (December SOTM), Bling Assortment Buttons, Black Waxy Flax, 3D foam tape, Crochet Flowers, and Cotton Candy, Black, & Tulip inks.

This paper was on clearance for only $3 for the pack.  It was one of my favorites so I just had to get another one.  When we had Valentines as an option for this blog hop it arrived at the perfect time.  At first I was going to make a card, then I thought maybe a layout, then I remembered that I wanted banners for holidays throughout the year.  There is plenty of paper in a paper pack so I decided to go for it and the great thing is I would have it done for the upcoming holiday!

I cut the scalloped pennants using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge at 7″.  I cut cardstock for the base on the ones that I used B&T paper on.  I also mounted all the pieces on the My Creations chipboard Banner.  One thing I noticed when I used the inside and out of the banners and I flipped some over to use the different patterns on the paper…the inside piece did not match up if I flipped it over.  You’d think that with this pattern it wouldn’t matter but it must be off a little, just enough to not line up.  On those pieces I added embellishments to cover up the space.  Next time I make one, if I use this same pattern, I will use the cardstock as my base again and just use one piece of B&T paper so I don’t have to worry about it matching up exact.  Letters are also cut with the Art Philosophy cartridge at 2″.

Here’s closer pictures because it looks much better when you can see it up close.
