Happy Birthday Circle Circus

I thought I would change the pace a little with this Happy Birthday card.  This is a little more modern than I tend to go, but I love the movement of the card.

I made it using a background stamp I got off Stampin Up's Clearance Rack.  If you didn't have one similar to this you could always use the masking technique.  I may try a version of that next.  The sentiment is from Curly Cute is stitched to the card and cut into a banner shape.  The green and black circles are from Circle Circus stamp set.

Happy Crafting,

Baby Boy Banner

There is nothing like a new baby to put a smile on my face.  Making this is a "Baby" banner surely did that.  I love the combination of soft blues and greens.  

I also found this great blue alphabet paper that makes a perfect backdrop for this onesie.

I hope this inspires you in making your own banner, but if would like me to make you a baby shower banner I would love to!  Just contact me or check out my Etsy Store, Melanie Makes.

"It's a Girl" Banner

I wanted to share with you one of my most recent projects for a neighbor.  She was having a baby shower and asked if I would make a "It's a Girl!" banner for her.  It had been a while since I made one so I had to dust off some cobwebs from my Cricut.  Poor machine has been neglected since our move, but I hope to get it back up and running.

It certainly was a fun change of pace to make this pink colorful banner.  I used my Gypsy to size the scallops, text and baby onesie.  

Of course to finish it off I added some coordinating ribbons between the letters. 

Happy Crafting,
