what I already had going on. I am using this nursery as inspiration. The whole project is really just getting started, and to kick it all off I made this wall art using the new Detailz Dies from Lifestyle Crafts.
Detailz Dies are cutting dies that cut and emboss in one pass when you use thick paper, plus you can use the die as a stencil. I used the Banners set, and I love how it turned out! I also used letterpress paper, which is thick enough to do the cut and emboss at once. The blue and pink banners are letterpress paper that I covered with washi tape first. I strung the banners on embroidery floss and added a sweet little initial. So cute and easy!

Cinnamon Sugar Banana Bread
Adapted from Cannella Vita
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
3 large ripe bananas, mashed
2 large eggs
½ cup vegetable oil
¼ cup honey
¼ cup water
4 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
5 Tbsp. packed dark brown sugar
Preheat the oven to 350° F. Butter and flour two 9"x5" metal loaf pans. Or, spray with cooking spray and line it with parchment paper, letting the excess hang over the sides. I used cooking spray without the parchment paper, and it was really difficult to get the bread out without messing up the topping.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. In a large bowl, whisk together the banana, eggs, oil, honey, and water. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and stir well. Pour the batter into the prepared pans.
In a small bowl, mix together the topping ingredients. Sprinkle them evenly over the batter in both pans and pat down.
Bake the bread until a tester inserted into its center comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Cool the bread in the pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes. Then carefully remove the bread from the pans, taking care not to dislodge the topping. Cool completely before slicing.
Makes 2 loaves.
