Doodlebug Designs Simply Put Banner

Monday, August 26, 2013
My craft room is definitely my happy place.  It's where I go to create and enjoy some of my down time.  It is also where I like to put things that make me happy.  Happy = creativity for me, so that's where I'm trying to go with my decor.  When we did the door POV reveal I showed you one corner of my craft room where I store my Doodlebug Design supplies.  Now that I'm on their design team as the fabric specialist, I get the chance to try some of their other supplies as well.  
The other day I was playing with their Simply Put cards.  These are meant to be used in scrapbooking, Project Life-style.  You slip the cards in slots meant for photos and voila- instant scrapbook!  They are awesome.


  I started cutting them up and ended up with this: a happy banner to brighten up this corner.  I used cards from the fruit stand and take note collections.  All the items used in this corner are from Doodlebug- they just have such bright happy colors and they all work perfectly together.    

I hope if I admit to struggling to make pom poms I won't lose my crafter card.  I made these using twine.  I love them from this angle but they always seem to have a spot in the middle that won't quite close up.  I'll keep working on that. ;)

 These take note cards I kept whole and just put them in some frames I found on clearance at Ikea.  They help feed my happy in = happy out philosophy.

 This is a close up of a few of the pennants.  I love the big brads.  I tried to make each flag sort of represent something I love, summer, flowers, home- you get the idea.  

This banner just adds so much life to this corner.  It really needed it because it doesn't get any light normally.  

Have you created anything recently to add some life to a dull spot?  I'd love to hear about it.

xoxo,
Amy

This is so fun, Amy. The colors are so vibrant. The pom poms photographed really well, but I know how it is to focus on the flaws ;) They were a great addition to the banner. Love it!
