Pink and Red is in the Air!

Vday hopV-Day-Banner-full

 

Oh, I am a happy crafter today because I get to share two of my favourite things – ribbon and pink, pink, pink!!!  Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so the awesome May Arts team decided to share a little inspiration.  And for those of you who are anti-Valentine’s Day – that is no reason to rob yourself the chance to win some May Arts ribbon goodies!  Make sure you comment anyway!

If by some chance you are starting today’s fun here at SCS, make sure you head on over to Virginia Fynes‘ blog to make sure you have all the chances possible to win!

For today’s hop. I decided to have some fun with the Artful Accents – G492-01 White Banner.  This make a great base for all sorts of banner projects, and once I had this one done, I still had enough pieces of banner left over for at least one more project!!  I have to admit that I went a little crazy with the ribbon here too.  I was having a lot of fun mixing textures – everything from velvet ric rac to satin embroidery to sequin hearts!

I think my favourite element ended up being the sequin hearts.  At 1.5″, these beauties were the perfect size to fill in some of the space between the banner pieces.  Because they are adhesive, I simply took two hearts and placed them back to back over top of the thread that holds the banner pieces together.  I had this embellishment done across the whole banner in less than 3 minutes!  Have I mentioned lately that I love adhesive ribbons (and May Arts has an awesome selection to make your crafting life easy-peesy).

Okay, enough of the gushing and googlie eyes here – I need to save some for Valentine’s Day! 😉  If you haven’t checked out the pretty and playful inspiration up today, check out the list below.  And don;t forget, we will have a whole new line-up of projects tomorrow, so you will want to come back and check that out!  In the meantime, thanks for stopping by, and have a pink-tastic day!
