The first banner I made was mostly girly, the second was a good balance of girly and grungy and my final banner is more grungy than girly. Today I've got some really fun GirlieGrunge techniques to share with you in my video tutorial!

This flower was made with my Bitty Blossom and Carnation Creation Spellbinder dies.

  1. While I found them all wonderful, this grungy version speaks to my heart.
    I am a mixed media person, so I will incorporate your products into recreating objects into things more visably attractive.

  9. Love this floral banner. I would incorporate the fabric into my mixed media layout for some great texture and depth.

  10. I love her denim line, and the pennant line, and well lets just say every thing Donna does. The adheasives would replace some of the hot glue I have been using My fingers thank you, The dodz are just what are needed to place a flower and make sure it stays. Her ribbons and lace are wonderful and I would add more to my cards, layouts and mixed media items. This hop has given my imagination new fodder to think about.
    Thanks so much

  14. I love the grunge look. It's absolutely the best. I do have a questions on the rivets you used on this banner, and the grommets you used on the other banner. Is there a place, or a specific brand you use? Thanks so much and I'm soooo glad I just stumbled on your site. Will definitely be following.

    1. Thanks so much Joy! I just get my rivets and grommets online or at a sewing/notions store like JoAnns. You may need to invest in an inexpensive grommet setter if you get the really large ones like I used. The setter was around $10 I think.
