Authentique: Maya Road Blog Hop: Birthday Banner

Authentique Paper and Maya Road are teaming up this week to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and Maya Road products!

After you check out the inspiration here on the Authentique Paper blog today, be sure to head on over to the Maya Road blog to find out what the talented members of the Maya Road Design Team have created.

As soon as I saw the Maya Road Pendant Banner, I knew that I didn't want to make the standard mini album. I also have a cute little girl who is turning three in just a few months, and want to make sure that she has the cutest birthday ever. And as soon as I saw the wonderful things from Maya Road, I knew exactly the line I wanted to use... BLISSFUL!
I started by layering cute scalloped circles with even cuter doily shapes that I cut from my die cut machine. Each banner piece has been then layered with the cutest of decorations.
I loved the MR's little star Trinket pins. They went perfectly with the tiny little bee Icon.
Each of the letters are die cut as well, layered with both the adorable Still Sew Cute Chipboard Set, Love Hangers, and various Authentique die cuts. 
And the last little Banner is another layered piece of love. Instead of leaving the last little needle chipboard plain, I embossed it with silver embossing powder.
Keeping with the pink and yellow accents, I made sure to tie the yellows, and pop that pink that is scattered throughout Blissful with pearlized cardstock.
I cannot wait for her birthday!!

Make sure you stop and visit us as well as our friends over at Maya Road each day this week, we've got prizes and lots of wonderful inspiration coming your way! Also, make sure you stop by the Maya Road Facebook Page and tell them that Authentique Paper sent you!
