Memorable Seasons is having the Last Scrapper Standing contest for the next few weeks and this is week 1! This weeks challenge was to use the phrase "An American Girl" as inspiration, and the LO also had to include stars and stripes.
Anyway, when I was thinking of stars and stripes, what came to mind were the half circle red white and blue banners that people hang for decoration (I'm sure they have a name, but I just can't think of it). That is what inspired the half pleated flowers. I also wanted to keep with the red white and blue theme, which wasn't a requirement, but I just felt it.
The stars I cut with my cricut from Core'Dinations CS and embossed and sanded and inked it. There was a tutorial posted at Scrapbook & Cards Today for the folding of these stars and I love the way they came out.
Well I am super excited because I am going to Archiver's tomorrow night with Heather and have LOTS to get done!!!! So I will be posting lots next week!
As always, TFL!
