Want2 BLING up some fun!?!

To check out my Just Us Girls 3D template technique, click here! {But please stay for some blingy inspo, too!}


They say diamonds are a girl's best friend, but WE know that BLING, whether it be
sparkled or pearlized, is a CRAFTY person's VERY DEAR friend!
{Notice, BLING doesn't discriminate ~ girl, boy, it don't matter!} heh heh

All I know is that MY stash of bling, is on SPEED dial, if YA know what I mean!
I can barely craft without it!

A few weeks ago, I made this:

My SUPER talented cohorts at Just Us Girls and I made FAT envelopes {Woot*Woot!*}
And, in my excitable and sometimes downright silly blog voice, I taunted YOU,
insisting that I would be back to share the little treasure to be tucked inside!


I'm back to share a SUPER fun companion to this lil' chicky!


Thanks to the inspiration from my plethora of Want2Scrap bling {SCHWING!!!}
and their exciting relationship with Want2Scrap {bring ON the Nestabling! C'mon APRIL!}
I was sent a handsome stash of Spellbinders to work with, so I made THIS fun
banner with their nested pennant die collection, but ALSO, I topped them off with
Labels Nine, accented with circles and scallops and just generally, had a diecutting,
stamping, paperpiecing, painting, shading and completely BLINGED - OUT festival!

For ALL of the bling-a-licious details {!},
I would POSITIVELY be doing cartwheels of gratitude if you would go check out the
BLINGY fun and {slightly addicting} project, over thar, at the WANT2SCRAP
blog, and leave me a lil' love over there, too! Shameless, I know! But I would be positively
giddy with joy if you dropped a few words of of excitement about WHAT amazing things
bling can do, either on THIS project, or in your OWN crafty life!


THANK you soooooooooooooooooooooo much for your kind words and support!

Oh goodness! But oh my this DOES look good out in scrapland! I know it has a destination already but I'm thinking that wood beam NEEDS a banner there permanently!

Oh my gosh, Elise, I have been wanting to make a banner like this, and when I saw that there are banner-shaped NESTIES, I flipped! Thanks for being such an enabler---there went $40 quick as a wink. But they're so CUTE! You did an awesome job here!

What a fabulous banner that is decorating your studio! Not only is the banner out-of-sight awesome, that picture of the horses caught my eye, and I'm sure it's another of your fabulous paintings!! I remember when you were building your studio, and it really has a homey feel with the way you're decorating it!!! IT'S GREAT!!!
