Maya road smile banner...

Hi friends,

I hope that your Monday is off to a great start. Mine sure is, I got the kids off to school, made it to the gym and got our grocery shopping all before 9am. Now I have the rest of the day to play in my scrap room, yay!

I have a fun project to share with you today. This week Epiphany Crafts has teamed up with Maya Road to bring you some amazing projects on their blog.

I am up today and I created a fun little banner for my scrap room

Smile Banner by Gina Lideros

Epiphany Crafts Supplies:
Epiphany Crafts: scallop 25 shape studio tool, round 25 shape studio tool, round 14 shape studio tool, scallop 25 shape bubblecaps

Maya Road: canvas banner pieces (from canvas banner album), wooden bird pieces, craft doilies, buttons
Pebbles: pattern papers, smile sticker, smile clothespins (Sunnyside collection)
Studio Calico: Mister Huey’s spray mist (mint julep)
adhesive: Beacon’s 3-in-1 quick dry glue
Brother: sewing machine
Guterman: thread

To create my banner, I first sprayed some Maya Road canvas banner pieces with spray mist:

Then I used my Epiphany Crafts scallop 25 shape studio tool, to make scallop epoxies and adhered them to my banner along with Maya Road craft doilies and Maya Road buttons.

Next, I used liquid glue to adhere Maya road wooden bird pieces.

Lastly, I punched some pieces of pattern paper using my Epiphany Crafts scallop 25 shape studio tool, round 25 shape studio tool, and round 14 shape studio tool.

Then I sewed them together in a long chain to make a stitched banner to hang from the top of my canvas banner. I then attached them with wooden clothespins.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a fabulous Monday!
