Back to School ... Check!

Well now that Back to School is over, and thank goodness for it, I am ready to start Fall clubs, get started on designing Christmas Card Classes and play in my craft room for hours on end.    Well I know that won't happen every day but some days, maybe, I hope.

Ok so here are my precious darlings who are now in school and I am not one of those moms who is sad about that.  In fact I am happy to have them out of the house for a few hours everyday.  I know they are safe and learning and having fun and I get to have some time for myself!

But I digress, I spent a good chunk of August in my Craft room and I have yet to show you all of the very fun things I have made.   This is by far one of my most favourite projects for this Holiday season.

Stampin' UP has come up with this really great Build-a-Banner Kit.  As usual I did not think this would be for me the first time I saw it and I was TOTALLY Wrong!!  Typical.

 Using the Build A Banner Simply Created Kit I took 4 of the canvas pennants (the kit comes with 18) and arranged them in a patteren that I liked.  I then used the images stencils included in the kit to create the pattern on each of the canvases.  The colours I used were, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay.
Each Pennant was sprayed with a re-inker and alcohol mixture.  Once dry I added the letter stencils and sprayed on the letters in Smokey Slate.

Some had the letters right on the canvas and some on paper. One worked just as well as the other.

 I also added Snowflakes from the Festive Flurry Framelits Dies to the canvas and as accents on the twine.   I used the Silver Glimmer paper and Bermuda Bay and Pool Party Card Stock.

A little ribbon and some rhinestones finish the look.
 I really am happy with how this turned out but more than that I was surprised at how easy it was to create!  It took me a few minutes to get the ink amount right and I did sacrifice one of my canvas pennants to practice with but they do give you 18.

I think I will work on a "Home" or "Create" banner next.   Some fun bright colours and flowers or butterflies!  Loads of possibilities with this kit.

  1. Beautiful banner Janet! I thought the very same thing, "I don't need that" but I order two kits, one for each of my daughters, going to have a mini class just for them, and I bet I'm going to have to make one for myself too!


Thank you so much for your comments they mean the world to me. Have a wonderful day.
