I thought I'd do a quick post to share the project I taught at Stamping Around Ohio last weekend. The class was at the store at which my BFF, Tammy Hershberger, works and it was so good to see her again! We had an awesome time--I got to see my MFT teammate, Christina Fischer again, as well as my good friend Kirsty. And I got to meet Julie Masse and Kim Schofield, the co-owners of Stamping Around. And Maria of Kitchen Sink Stamps and ALL of the participants!!!! I hope they had as good a time as we teachers did!

My class was sponsored by Flourishes Stamps. I used Strips and Stripes to stamp each pennant header and for the rosettes. And I used Spellbinders' Nested Pennants and Lacey Nested Pennant dies for the pennant bases and MFT's 1/4" Rosette and Stacking Stars Die-namics dies And I actually tea-dyed the gingham ribbon with REAL tea! 

These banners are so much fun to make--I already have a Summer one done and plans for many more!

I have a couple one more kit for this design in my Etsy store if anyone is interested. There will be no more after this one is gone.

Thanks SO much for stopping by!

  7. I think this was my favorite project & I was so glad to finally learn how to make rosettes that STAY together. It's such a great idea for all occasions.
