Fresh Idea Friday

Happy Friday Everyone!!!

It is Lisa A. here to share a fresh idea with you. Do you keep up with trends in the scrapbook world??? I love to read magazines and blogs to get ideas and file them away. So sometimes, I see a trend but it takes me a LONG time before I actually try it. I'm a "one step behind" kind of gal.

Well, not this time! haha! I'm going to be trendy and share it with you!


Cards with banners are really hot right now and I have REALLY been wanting to make one. Once I got the new Spring 2010 Ippity Paper Pack in my hot little hands, I was all set to go!!!

Have you seen the new papers for this release??? Aren't they yummy!?! I love all the patterns and colors. The one that stood out and sang, "make a banner card from me" was the circle pattern with diamonds in it.

I cut a strip of that paper so it created the flags for me! I then just had to trim around them, easy peasy!!! Course, I thought the fun shape of the flag would add a little interest and boy does it!!! My hubby said, "that looks like undies on a clothes line!" heehee. Kinda does but that just makes it more fun!

I'm using the Fall For You and Sweet Thoughts of Spring stamp sets.

I have a Create a Card video for you as well so you can see step by step on how this card was made. I hope you enjoy it here or at YouTube.

I hope you all will try making a banner card!!!

So, I bet you are wondering who won my little game on my blog from yesterday!!!!

First, the answer was D.

I loved all your comments.... but I really did have a weird day and I didn't make them up. Yes, a cow peed on my car and a lizard ran across the road as I was about to pull onto our street. Weird, right. This stuff happens to me all the time. As for the cow incident, I was driving on the freeway behind a small trailer carrying about 6 cows when one peed and it sprayed all over the front of my car. Ugh. And just so you know, I did have a bat dive bomb me, but that was months ago, not yesterday! ha ha.

So... our winner of a Love in Return stamp set is...

Emily Keaton
