Beautiful Banners


I love making banners, so when the new Stampin' Up! catalog came out, I could not wait to get my hands on the Letters for You Photopolymer Bundle (item 142348) on page 137. 

Another new product that had me excited was the music note paper included with Stampin’ Up!’s This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper (item 141628). I started with that as the base and added the gorgeous new 5/8" Mini Striped Ribbon in Watermelon Wonder (item 141433), along with the smallest flower and leaf sprig from the Jar of Love Bundle (item 142342). The ink colors I used are Watermelon Wonder, Marina Mist, and Wild Wasabi.


The new Layering Ovals Framelits Dies (item 141706) really show off the large letters and the new Foam Adhesive Strips (item 141825) make adhering these beautiful letters a breeze. No more cutting up your Stampin' Dimensionals! 

When I was part-way done with the birthday side of my banner, I decided it would be fun to utilize the beautiful Christmas pattern on the back of the music note paper. I’m so glad I thought of it because now the banner can be used again! 


The letters really sparkle in Red Glimmer Paper (item 121790) and the new Emerald Envy is the perfect shade of green for Christmas projects.


Stampin' Up! makes it quick and easy for you to create projects with that “wow” factor. For beautiful banners, I always turn to the Banners Framelits Dies (item 132173) and Whisper White Thick Baker’s Twine (141688).

Whatever the occasion, Letters for You will help you create the right banner to help you celebrate!

    I love this idea, and since my children's names both have 5 letters, a reversible birthday banner could be in the works!!
