Papercrafting Fun!

I have been in a papercrafting mood lately!  It all started with Eleni's birthday party.  I made her this banner to have hung in her bedroom for her birthday present.  Her room has bright colors and it was fun designing for it.  I embossed the design in orange onto cream cardstock to make the base paper.  I'm really happy with how it turned out.  Before the party, Carly and I were shopping for decorations and she kept saying she wanted to do a triangle banner.  I had a hard time keeping my mouth shut that I had the perfect thing for her so I spilled the beans and gave her the present early.  It ended up looking great with the party decorations though!

The day before the party we decided it would be really cute to have tags on each of the things that Carly made and bought for the food so I made tags for each thing using the colors of Carly's party decorations

I also made the little "Eleni's Sweet Shoppe" sign.  Carly did such a cute job with the theme of the party!

Right before the party I realized I didn't have a card to put on the present so I whipped this little guy up. I wanted it to look like the tags we made for the food.

For my birthday my mom sent me a bunch of handcrafted goodies!  She made me a set of ten cards that I can use this fall!  So excited :)

She also made me this AWESOME banner!  It says Spring on one side and Summer on the other so I can use it for seasonal decoration!  I have it hung in my kitchen across the top of the window.  I love how bright and cheery it is!

Excuse the headband mess on the table :)

I also had fun making a bunch of cards this week.  I made some thank you cards for all my birthday gifts and some thinking of you cards for some friends.  I'm happy with how they turned out!

I really love papercrafting but I think I have a million different projects going on.  My banister is still not all the way done, I'm working on some scrapbook pages, I'm doing some digital scrapbooking, I'm making cards, and I want to start on a few home decoration projects.  I think I need to finish one before I start on the next :)  What do you think?
