Banner Day

Hi everyone! Michelle here, taking over the blog for a day! Today we are going to have a Banner Day, right??

Mondays are usually hard on everyone, me included! No matter how hard it can be, we can make it a bit better. Maybe it's a cup of joe, a sweet treat, listening to some great music, or even just snuggling up with a loved one.

Sometimes, you just need to see something crafty, and then maybe have it inspire us to do something crafty ourselves!

Today, we are all about the banners! There are so many different banner shapes! We have a BUNCH of them on every one of our Cricut Cartridges! But, you don't have to have a cricut to make banners! It is super easy to make a banner! Just find the middle of your paper, and cut a straight line up to the depth that you would like your banner to be. Then you cut from one corner to the end of your first cut, then cut the other side to the end of your first cut. Viola! You are done with your banner!

I would LOVE to see what you do with banners! They are great on cards, layouts, and even 3-D projects! Show us what your banner looks like! Remember, use at least one product that is Close to my Heart, and use the link tool at the bottom of this post to share your project with us!

Check out these projects for some inspiration!

Thanks for the wonderful challenges. I normally use more CTMH items; but I did use the banner on the left lower corner from CTMH Flower Market Cricut Cartridge; plus the stamp from CTMH Hooked On you; plus the sentiment inside as well as the star die cuts from CTMH Artbooking Cartridge. Love CTMH products; but I also love digis; which are so much fun to color. Thank you for the fabulous inspiration by the DT. Have a wonderful day! See my blog for more information of CTMH products used at https://purpleglocreations.blogspot.com/2018/09/birthday-card-using-ching-chou-kuik.html Hugs, Gloria
