I am totally obsessed with these banners. I found them last fall on Patty Bennett's site. She had a wonderful tutorial for sale and I've adapted my own ever since. I've been making one for each month. I have a group of ladies who look so forward to the next one. Tomorrow we will be making the Summer banner. It uses all retired designer paper from the 6x6 packs available to the Level 1 Hostesses the last few years. They are the perfect size to cut down for the banners. And it's a great way to use up the extras you have. This banner used Apricot Appeal, Pretty in Pink, and Green Galore. I used More Mustard, Rose Red, and Green Galore ink to daub the edge of the letters. The letters were cut out in Whisper White using the Big Shot (love, love it) and the Serif Essentials Alphabet dies. I also used our wonderful new Butterfly punch. The "woody" station wagon on the Front cover is from the retired Just Beachy set from the Occasions Mini. If you like would like to order any of the current products, call or email me today. I'll post the rest of the cards we will be making at the open house on Saturday, July 25th from 10-3 on Tuesday and Wednesday. Enjoy!
