Candy Corn Halloween Banner

Swing by Practical Scrappers today and see the many beautiful things we created that were inspired by Pinterest.  My banner was inspired by one part of a banner I saw on Pinterest shaped like a candy corn.  My inspiration pin is up on Practical Scrappers but I thought I would share some close ups of my finished banner here!
I created 3 sizes of triangles, one in each color. 
I put each triangle through the Cuttlebug to emboss them with different textures to add more visual interest. 
I used my FAVORITE new tool, the Silhouette Cameo to cut the circles in white and silver glitter.  The letters, are a Miss Kate's Cuttable file I used on my Silhouette also,   
I punched a hole in each top corner, 
Threaded ribbon through,
And hung the banner.  

To be honest, it was supposed to hang from my mantle but when it was finished, it was too long!  I improvised and love it over the kitchen window!
p.s. make the best of a project that did not go as planned!

New Card Sketch

It's Card Sketch day over at Practical Scrappers and boy does this one's look like it was designed by someone other than me!  I had fun creating it and wanted to think outside my normal everyday designing "box" Here it is:

I had a ton of fun working with the sketch too because it was not my normal neat and tidy.  It was very freeing! 

Come by Practical Scrappers today and see my design Teammates's takes on this fun sketch!
p.s. Give another style a try, you may find it liberating too!
