Handmade Banners for Hari Raya

With that in mind, we bring you this  little idea about making your own handmade banner. This could be adjusted to any size with some reworking and if you don’t feel confident enough in your lettering or painting abilities, you can always stencil or stamp or stitch or iron on any number of solutions. Just don’t overthink it and make it reflect your personal asthetic!

Banners like this are easy to put together when you have a Sizzix Big Shot! You’ll want to lay out your banner as you create it and keep
the following tips in mind:

Start by counting how many letters your word has. If your banner will include more than one word you’ll want to add a blank square in to separate the words.

What will you use for the base of your banner letters?
Select a shape (scallop square here) and decide if you want all of the squares to be the same color or how you will alternate different colors. Then cut and lay out all your base banner pieces.

Cut out letters in the colors of your choice and lay them out on the banner.
Do you want to back them with something to make them pop out more? A die-cut shape, a doily, a square… the possibilities are endless!

Add ribbon.
Punch holes (two on each letter piece usually works the best) and string onto a long piece of ribbon.

Add more ribbon pieces, punched or die-cut pieces, stamped images, buttons, brads… whatever you have that will enhance your banner.

We wish all our muslim's customer
'Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri'

Selamat Berpuasa

In this month of Ramadan, we wish all our Muslim customers Selamat Berpuasa! 

This is also a good time to sit down and recollect all the precious happenings over the last year and take this opportunity to take out all (print out) all those beautiful photos taken over the last 12 months, and create something memorable to cherish as we look forward to celebrating the Hari Raya Aidilfitri with loved ones. 

Make this time an even greater inspiration to create for loved ones, be it a handmade Hari Raya greeting, or a signature brag book or even a scrapbook album for keeps.  I'm sure it will be one of the best Hari Raya gift anyone could receive.  And trust me, it will be cherished for a long time to come. 

Visit our blog and Facebook page often for updates, special deals & inspirations.

Oh!  Don't forget to visit our little Kampung House (in-store) created by our creative team just for this special occasion. 

Selamat Berpuasa!

Idea Gallery & Sharing the tips

Howdy and Happy Monday!

Ponder these questions:
What do I want the end result to be?
Why am I doing this? Who is this for?
What do I want to get out of it?

With this type of thought process, many of you will come to a place of
greater clarity about your scrapbook organization.
It might take a little time to realize whatever it is that you need to realize.
But many of you truly will have an a-ha moment. Super!

However …
Many of you will not necessarily have the light bulb moment,
but rather you will throw those questions and this blog post
to the wind and say Who cares about a system!? I just want to play!

And you know what? That’s okay too.

“Figuring out” a scrapbook system isn’t for everyone.
Sometimes it’s best to just do something. 
Start somewhere and have fun and that’s it!
But for many (myself included), there is great value in thinking
about the big picture … even if it evolves and changes a bit over time

(which is a thousand percent perfectly okay!).

So, let's check my layout...
I'm using Martha Stewart butterfly punch.

I like to print out my own wording.

Chipboard diecut & I powdered emboss on it.

Make use on the chipboard diecut, enhance with paint & glossy accent.
One big photo is more than enough

In addition to your own personal pondering,I’m sharing some additional thoughts on this topic – from me, and from our Creative Team.As with everything else in scrapbooking, there is no right or wrong, no best or worst.Do what feels right for your life, your situation, your family, your sanity.The purpose in sharing these ideas is the hope that something will stand out to youas something you want to consider for your own system …or perhaps a completely different idea not even mentioned here will pop into your mind.
