Welcome to Day One of the Christmas Is For Kids Blog Hop that is being hosted by our fabulous designer Ellen of the Card Monkey. The Christmas is For Kids Blog Hop is a two day hop.... that mean today and tomorrow there will be 25 different designers sharing their beautiful banners that they worked so hard on so each child at the Pediatric Specialty Care Center would each receive one to hang over their beds. If you came from the talented Tami of the Tambo's Creations then you are heading in the right direction. If you stopped by looking for the KinderStampO's blog hop it will be in the posting below.
I used the We R Memory Keepers Peppermint Twist Collection for my banner. On the first banner I fussy cut the top part of the paper and layered it over the green paper. I added one of the stickers from the layered words sticker sheet and cut the Santa Claus in half so it would make his body look longer. I also added some Glossy Accent to the ornaments to give them dimension. On the "N" banner I made an accordion circle to place under the letter. I used my EK Success Le Circles to create the large circles for my border at the top, added a sticker from the Embossible Designer Sticker sheet. I added the layered accordion letter that I had made to the top of the banner.
The "O" letter is made from the Chip Decor letters that I bought to do all of the NOEL in. (I got them at Hobby Lobby) I covered my banner with more of the Peppermint Twist paper, added some Little Yellow Bicycle Canvas Tape along with some of the Little Yellow Bicycle Fabric Favorites.
Banner with the "E" is again layered with the Peppermint Twist papers, some of the journal blocks from one of the sheets of paper along with a few stickers from the Embossible Design Stickers. The stringer of stockings is from the Little Yellow Bicycle Fabric Favorites sheet.
My "L" banner has a been layered again with the Peppermint Twist collection and the 10 Things I Love About Christmas is from Little Yellow Bicycle.
The last banner is finished with adding stickers from the Embossible Sticker Sheet along with a Happy Holidays Die Cut. I hope you have enjoyed my banner and I still need to get it strung together and mailed in to Ellen for the children. Your next stop on the hop is with our creative Charity of Scrap Faire. Remember to visit Ellen of the Card Monkey because there will be more inspiration also you don't want to miss out on the giveaways from doing the hop.
