"ARTSY" Shabby Cameo Banner!!

Hello Blogland!

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope your week is going well!:)

Today I'm sharing my very last DT project for WILD ORCHID CRAFTS....this is bittersweet for me, I've been on the team for over 2 years...I've gotten a little attchaed! lol...anyhow, I wanted to host a secret swap between the old DT, we all got a name and created for that person and they don't know who's sending them a gift!! :) I love the element of surprise!

This is my project I made for my secret sister, it's a banner using her favorite colors, purple! I used my custom Cameo Die and spelled out "ARTSY" with a cameo girl on either end! The paper collection is by Maja Design, "Ska Vi Ta En Flika?" not sure what it means but you gotta see that collection their blog! Then Paired with WOC!!! Awesome!!

Here is my video intro:

  1. I watch your vids all the time and I've bought a few things from your store , but I've never commented I guess I think you get so many that mine really don't matter cause you don't know me. Let me tell you kiddo, your work is amazing and you knocked yourself out on this. I love live love it. I know the person you've made this for will cherish it for always. I'm not a purple hater, but I don't really go to "purple" to use much. I think after the way you've used this, I am a purple Lover. Great job and God Bless, Carole
