The ScrapTiffany challenge for the week is to use banners/pennants. I know--a no brainer right?? I've heard some people resistant to this trend, but for the most part they are pretty rampant right now. Personally I love them. Especially for titles and in layouts with kids--they are just so playful and fun. So here is my banners layout:
You can see my main banner is the title across the top of the page. I used small triangles cut apart from a canvas star (made by Canvas Corp) and wood tags. The wood tags were stamped with a wood grain stamp by Hero Arts. The banner was strung on Divine Twine--sigh--another LOVE of mine :)
then I cut a banner straight from a Cosmo Cricket patterned paper. I am on a buying hiatus until my LSS yard sale at the end of the month, BUT when I saw Cosmo Cricket's Togetherness line in person I had to have some. Clouds, banners, butterflies, kite strings--seriously this line might has well been made especially for me ;)
Do you love the wood grain background? It is a Core'dinations cardstock, that I picked up the same day as the Togetherness line and I MUST have more!!
Oh my gosh do you love the Togetherness strips? How about the "Let's Get Together. Yah Yah Yah."? Can I tell you how many times I watched the Hailey Mills movie The Parent Trap (I refuse to see the remake!)?? About 1 billion times! Not sure what it was, but the songs were so fun and the movie made me laugh--over and over again!
OK, so that is banners. Wanna see a few of the things I have been making for the Craft Fair? I made a few Halloween Decorations:
I also made some altered onesies, card sets and wreathes. Yes, Mom I even made wreathes!! My Mom is an expert wreath maker--seriously hers are AMAZING. Mine are....adequate lol. I'll try and get some pictures taken today.
Oh, can I share some awesomely exciting good news!? I got a call yesterday that I will be designing for a local scrapbook store in my area called the Scrapbook Barn!!!
I am so super excited!! We have the first Design team meeting on Monday and I cant wait!
Ok, I guess that is enough for today, but dont forget to come back tomorrow for the Just Imagine Blog Hop!! Remember there will be prizes given away on EACH designer's blog AND a grand prize given away at the Just Imagine blog WOOO HOOO! See ya then!
