Banner Pocket

Banner PocketThe banner kit in the Holiday Catalog is FABULOUS!!!  There are stencils in the kit that you can use to decorate the banner panels with stripes, polka dots, or chevrons.  There are even alphabet stencils so you can spell out a child's name and put the banner panels in a frame to hang in a little girl or boy's bedroom or play room.  This time though I used two of the banner panels to make a pocket to put a little treat in.  Wouldn't this be cute for St. Nicholas Day next week.  You could tuck a couple of goodies right in here.

Present Gift Card

  What a great weekend I had!!!  On Saturday my sister Tina and I taught two classes at the One of a Kind Stamping & Scrapbook Expo in Madison, WI.  In the morning we made a beautiful Stippled Blossom Gift Card Box with six coordinating cards inside.  Then in the afternoon we made a wonderful Sparkly Snowflake Frame picture.  I will post pictures of those two projects later this week.  Then Saturday night we taught a "round robin" class to 80 wonderful stampers.  The 80 people rotated the room in groups of 10 — so I taught this class 8 times in 4 hours.  The evening went by so quickly.

Here is the project that we did Saturday night.
Birthday Present Gift Card
