Woohoo! Time for another Di’s Country INKers blog hop! This month we are focusing on Celebrations, and one of my favorites is the 4th of July! Family gatherings, barbecues, fireworks – I love everything about the 4th! This year we, as a nation, have an awful lot to celebrate as well. My project today has no stamping on it whatsoever. I know, weird, huh?
Several months ago I saw an alternate project using last year’s My Paper Pumpkin ‘Pinwheel Party’ kit that I just loved, (it was done by Peanuts and Peppers Papercrafting) but I had used up all the supplies that came in mine a long time ago. No problem! One of the perks of being a My Paper Pumpkin subscriber, is that I am able to purchase refills of some of the past kits. This one is still available for now, but it’s about to be retired soon. All you need to do is subscribe not only will you get a great kit each month, but you too will have access to some seriously cool past kits.
I covered a foam wreath with some navy blue satin ribbon from my stash, and then went to town making pinwheels and hot glue-ing them onto my wreath. It needed just a little more pizazz, so I got out my Big Shot and the Stars Framelits and made some multi-layered stars to tuck between the pinwheels using Real Red, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and Night of Navy cardstock. Some large rhinestones finished them off.
I wish I knew a trick for getting glittery things to photograph better, but here’s a close-up of one of the layered stars. It’s so sparkly! (I must be hanging out with my Granddaughter too much – I just heard that last sentence in Lil’ Agnes’ voice from the Minions… lol)
