Using Banners ...

Hi Everybody,

At first glance this looks nothing like a banner ... but that is exactly what I have used to create this background.

The die set is part of  the Apple Blossom Collection named Banners and it is available to purchase from Craft Stash

There is also a matching stamp set Banner Sentiments that can be used with the die that will give you lots of ways to customise this for your self.

But once you have used it as banners you may like to try something more and the video will show how I have made this work for me.

Apple Blossom - Banner and Sentiments   is now waiting for you on YouTube  and I hope you enjoy the video.

The papers that I have used are all from the same stack and so are sure to match and they are from  AnnaMarie Designs

The one that I have used is from the Teal pack and I have used all the straight edged  Banners to cut my shapes

The  Gilding Flakes  can be bought from Craft Stash  along with the  Double Sided Adhesive Sheets  that I used to stick them on to

If you are new to my blog ...  all the coloured words are links and are there for you to see the products that I have used

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
