HIMCR #166 - Banners

Hi, all my crafty friends and family!!!

Here it is Saturday once again and you know what that means, don't you?

That's right . . . it's time for a new challenge over at Hiding in My Craft Room.  And this week the theme is "Banners".   I just LOVE banners because they can be used for anything from home decor to cards to scrapbook layouts . . . the possibilities are endless!!!  So get out your paper, scissors, glue and get craftin'.
This week's sponsor is:

I remember when banners started to become popular a few years ago and I had not made any or used them . . . but when I finally did try them out, I was HOOKED!  Now they are one of my favorite "embellishments" for cards, layouts and home  decor projects.  So  for this week's challenge, I did a 2-page layout using banners for the title.  Here's how it turned out:

"Curiosity" paper collection by Authentique
"Thundercloud" cardstock
"Lemon Juice" cardstock
"Journal" Thickers  by Amy Tangerine 
Hemp cord/twine

I have to admit when I first got this paper collection a couple years ago from CropChocolate, I was a bit hesitant . . . but once I received it, I fell in love with it.  The colors worked just perfect with each other and had such a "vintage" feel to them.  Plus, as you can see from the layout, there are papers that can be fussy-cut for embellishments like the A-B-Cs, the yellow tags and the nursery rhymes.  I used my daughter's initials for the letters on the left page (A-M-C) and the usual A-B-C for the right page.  I just love how it all came together . . . now to decide which school pictures I'm going to put on it. :)

Remember, you have one week to get your "banners" project(s) in to be eligible for one of the several prizes Hiding in My Craft Room is giving away.  I wonder how many different types of "banners" there will be?  Well, I know I can't wait to find out!!!

Till the next time I'm up in the night.
