Mermaid Highchair Banner…

IMG_6621

Mermaid themed birthday’s are in right now and I finally got around to making my version of a highchair banner. I grew up on Disney films such as The Little Mermaid and I knew that I wanted my mermaid to be the one and only Ariel for this project.

I started off with the blue and gold pennants using my Cameo Silhouette 3 cutting machine. Then I added the red cardstock to make Ariel and the letters for my seashell.

Everything on this banner was layered on. You can imagine how tedious it is to glue on those thin strips of gold glitter paper to the cardstock. I’m very careful not to leave any visible glue residue, I use a scraper to remove any glue that sticks out.

I’m working on my photography skills, so I really have to practice my staging. But, I think with more practice I’ll be getting there. Pretty soon I will be able to have content just as good as the best of them hahaha. Watch out world!!

Minnie Mouse Highchair Banner

IMG_6548

Aren’t first birthdays just extra special?? Of course they are. First of all, a birthday bash is costly and the host enjoys it the least! Because of this, many people (including myself) only throw big birthday parties for milestone birthdays…first birthdays included.

This banner is shorter than what I usually make because this is intended to be used on a highchair. It’s about 24” for the length of the pennants and has an additional 11” of ribbon on each side. All of the shapes were cutout using my Cameo Silhouette 3 machine.

The number can be customized to all ages, and the ribbon can be made longer for a larger hanging area. The colors go beautifully together and I really like using glitter paper because it pops out in photo’s.

This item is now available on my Etsy shop:

DIY Photo Frame…

For those of you that follow me on Instagram @Jazelle86, you saw the sneak peek of this project I started last week.

I started off with a poster board I bought at Michaels during their 2 for $3 sale. Then I used a blade to cut out the frame.  I left 2” on each side and 6” on the bottom. After my frame was cut out, I used gold spray paint on both sides and let dry overnight.


I used my Cameo Silhouette 3 to cut out the banners, letters, vines and Minnie shape. Most of the flowers were made by hand. I even painted some paper to get the coral colored roses.

I started off gluing the letters to the banners and then I placed those on the poster board first with hot glue. Then I added the Minnie pinwheel followed by the flowers, vines and leaves.


The photo frame looks amazing with the flash because it stands out and shimmers in your photo. These pictures were all taken with an iPhone so it would closely resemble what it would look like in real life and not a professionally staged photo shoot.

Thank you for stopping by, catch ya next time. 💋
