Spring Banner Blast

The other night I had a small group of stampers over, (at my last team get together my team asked if I would do a spring banner class- don’t worry, I will repeat in case anyone else wants to make one too- let me know). Here’s how they did- aren’t they so sweet?? Love every single one of these, I think they are awesome!



Here’s Jamie with her banner, (hope I’m not spoiling the surprise by showing the photo on my blog, forgive me Jamie if this was supposed to be a secret).

This is Shayna holding her beautiful banner, can you see the cute doilies on the top of each letter? I think it’s just adorable with these doilies!


banner danielle

Here is Danielle and she wanted to personalize her banner by having the banner bases only in pink and yellow, and you know what- that’s what I’m all about- I WANT all my stampers/customers/friends/downline to ALWAYS create something they love- I don’t want carbon copies of mine (unless you love it and want it to be the same)- I work hard to ensure people always know they can customize their projects.




That being said, here is Amye- who wanted to make one just like mine (notice the elegant bird die on top of the banners- it is on the clearance rack, so I was comfortable using this die). Amye is the only one who incorporated the birds. Like I said, it should be a personal choice, I know lots of people who don’t care for birds.

This was my banner, I cased the idea from Pinterest, from a gal named Dawn T, and I loved the Gingham Garden color pallet she used, and all the scallop flowers made from the big shot were just the perfect finishing touches.

So what do you think? Do you want to make a SPRING banner? This is a time intensive class, I will need to do some more prep so if you are interested, please contact me at LStreifert@nycap.rr.com I can only accommodate 8 people in my stamp room at a time. This would be a $20 class and would include snacks, beverages, and all the supplies to make an awesome banner. I could do another class on April 27th, a Sunday afternoon, that is my first opportunity, if that doesn’t work, let me know- I can do another one later that week.

Have an awesome day, thanks for stopping by to read my blog!

12x12 framed art, Gingham Garden Sampler

12×12 Sampler… Gingham Garden

gingham squares framed

Hi There Stamping Friends… what do you think of my framed Sampler? These are the squares we swapped at our last get together at Dania’s team… the squares are 2 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches. Background paper is Strawberry Slush. There are several stamps, punches, and embellishments used here. I am wondering who would like to take this as a class? I was going to go hunting for more of these shadow box frames, then I realized I could keep the cost lower by having you buy your own frames (hey you might have those 40% off coupons to those other stores!)
So let me know if you’d like to take this class. You will make 9 squares and can either turn it into 12 x 12 framed art, or use for gift tags, or turn into full size cards.

The cost of this class is $15, and you will need your own scissors, adhesives, trimmer, and shadow box frame. (Do not purchase a flat glass frame as there are many embellishments on this project).

I have a couple possibilities for this class, please let me know if you are interested in Saturday morning June 29th (9-11:30 am) or Monday July 8th (6:30-9pm), or let me know if you are interested in making this sampler but neither of these dates work for you.

Hope to stamp with you soon!
