Crafty Secrets March Linky Party!!


It's time for some Easter fun over at the Crafty Secrets Blog. We're having our monthly linky party and this month we are focusing on Easter and Spring. I've used images from the new Spring Bunnies and Spring Chicks digial stamps, as well as patterned paper from CD #1 Creating with Vintage Patterns. 
Create something using Crafty Secrets products for your chance to win a $50 gift certificate for the Crafty Vintage Girl online store.

When I think of Spring and Easter I remember the Agriculture Exhibition and all of the gorgeous, big prize ribbons, so I took my inspiration from that. I started with my patterned paper from CD #1 and layered the digital stamp on top before printing them out.

I love ruffles and easily made these medallions by hot gluing strips of cotton to a circle (slightly larger than my printed image) overlapping the fabric to make ruffles. Take another strip of fabric and offset it slightly to create the smaller second circle of ruffles. I traced the same sized circle onto a stiffer piece of cardboard before gluing it to the centre of the fabric medallion.

I added some fabric ribbon tails edged with pinking shears and added some pretty lacy bows. A little lace on the burlap pennants and some fancy trim rounds out my shabby banner.
