Today is the fourth week of my summer guest designer series. This weeks guest is my sweet friend Joanna, her super cute blog is Scrap-Making!

Hi everyone! It's Joanna here and I'm super excited to be featured as Ruthie's guest designer today! Ruthie is my PKS DT sister and you all know by now how awesome she is! :)

Since the 4th of July is just a few weeks away I thought it would be fun to make a little DIY home decor type of project. Take a look...
The pinwheels are cut from the Just a Note cartridge (pre-loaded on the E2), then I just hot glued them to the dowel rods and swirled some twine all the way down. Each pinwheel is complete with a fun patriotic sentiment from the "Yankee Doodle Dandy" set by Scrappy Mom's Stamps.
This one has a cute little star brad in the center! :) 
I used my hot glue gun to glue down the polka dot ribbon all the way around and I HAD to add a banner (because I love banners!)..this one is cut from the April Showers Cricut cartridge. I embossed and sanded each pennant and finished it off with more twine.
The "Freedom" is from the Freedom Block by EAD Designs.

I hope you like my project today! 
And thank you Ruthie for letting me be apart of this fun series! :)
