So…. this past Friday night, my daughter, Joy, and her fiance, Brady, came home for the weekend for an engagement photo shoot with their wedding photographer. As part of the photo shoot, they wanted to take a few “Save the Date” photos also. Well, we began discussing what cute ideas Joy has seen for save the date photos and what she wants to do. (Mind you, this is about 9pm Friday night and we have to get up at 5am the next morning to get ready and head to Ft. Worth for the photo shoot.) One of the cute things she has seen are people holding up banners. Well, I told her… I can make a banner! I pulled out my handy dandy Build a Banner Simply Created Kit from the Holiday Catalog and begin creating. It probably took me about 1 hour at the most to create it. Here’s what I came up with:
I used Soft Suede ink for the backgrounds and Basic Black ink for the numbers. (the number stencils are the only part that is not from Stampin’ Up!) I also used the Burlap Ribbon from the Holiday Catalog and the Basic Black Chevron Ribbon from the main catalog.
Here they are holding it for me. I’ll be sure and post one of the beautiful professional photos from the photo shoot later once we get them from the photographer. I can’t wait to see how they turned out!
I have to say, the banner kit has been sitting in my cabinet for a month or so untouched and the other day I got it out to make a Halloween banner and then this one. This kit is AWESOME! It comes with all the background stencils and alphabet stencils plus 18 of the banners (and they’re canvas… not paper!) and the jute twine.
Really fun to work with. This is the one I made using the Halloween Accessory Kit:
It comes with everything you need to add to the banners.
Well, this has been a long post, but thanks for stopping by! And, I highly encourage you to get a Build a Banner Kit and give it a try! The possibilities are endless!
