Love Birds Banner/Album

May Arts Ribbon and Glue Arts teamed up this week for a crafting extravaganza! Check out the tutorial for my Love Birds Banner/Album over on the May Arts blog.

To create the banner/album I used my very favorite tape runner in the whole world - the Glue Glider Pro! In my fifteen plus years of papercrafting I think I've used just about every tape runner made, and I can sincerely recommend this one as my favorite. It's so easy to change out the cartridges, there are a variety of refill options, and it never jams up or breaks!

And of course I had to use my Ivory Satin/Pleats ribbon from May Arts! I can't seem to make anything without it these days. This ribbon is so beautiful. It has a luscious, silky sheen and is very versatile. The same goes for my other favorite - silk ribbon. I'm slowly collecting this incredible ribbon in every size and color available. For this project I used the 1.25" Ivory. Gorgeous!

The project also features parts of a wonderful chipboard birdcage book from Maya Road.

Vintage Glass Glitter adds incredible sparkle and a lovely vintage patina as it tarnishes over time.

I used a dreamy palette of creamy ivory, soft blue, and a dash of brown, all accented with silver and aqua glitter. But it's easy to customize this project to any occasion simply by changing the patterned papers used!

Be sure to visit May Arts and Glue Arts today for great inspiration, projects, and giveaways!
