Good morning everyone,

Today I'd like to share a banner I made.  I'm hoping to repaint my craft room soon.  As you can see the color is dark and not too inspiring.  It was supposed to be a burgundy however it is more like a muddy brick.  Anyway, when I repaint it will be light and airy and have touches of black and white.

I used the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to make each of the pennants and I used the Cricut Type Candy cartridge for the letters.  The sheer pink ribbon, black satin ribbon and string pearls are all from my stash.  The flowers are by Recollections.  For the paper I used black and white cardstock from Georgia Pacific.  I get it really cheap at Walmart and it is a great weight for just about everything. The patterned paper is by Nicole Crafts and the collection is called Black & White.

This is going to be my inspiration to get moving on redoing my craft room.

This banner has been Linked Up on the Pink Cricut Tuesday Link Up.


  1. I love it!!! See you should have joined in on the ATC banner swap! You would have rocked it :)

    Can't wait to see that room!


  2. I so want to buy that CTMH cartridge as well as the newest one. They just seems so pricey, but I've seen so many cute things, like yours, made with them. Very pretty banner.

  3. Hello Paula! I am finally catching up and made my way to your blog. I wanted to thank you so very much for your kind words and wonderful support on my blog. Your warm messages have really been inspirational. I can't wait to see what you have been up to so off I go to catch up, glean inspiration and simply support this truly lovely blog.
    Your banner turned out really nice. It just makes me want that cartridge even more.
    By the way, I live in New York too. I am in Western New York not too far from the Canadian border near Ontario, how about you?
    It would be something if we were close enough to be able to craft together!
    Stay well & keep on crafting.
    I am sure I will be posting more comments as I move along your blog.
    Big hugs,
