Wow, I can't believe I haven't posted since Tuesday! I was so busy getting ready for the Scrapbook Crop, I lost track of other things. It doesn't help that the two youngest boys have baseball practice 4 to 5 nights a week.
Have I mentioned that the Big Shot Die Cut machine is my favorite Stampin' Up! tool? I have so much fun creating with the different dies. The Big Shot is a wonderfully versatile die cut machine. It makes both big and small diecuts that can be used in numerous ways. This banner was created using the Bigz XL Pennant Die. One die cuts both a large and small pennant and the scallop circles and is exclusive to Stampin' Up! This banner is made using Pacific Point and Tempting Turquoise Card stock for the pennants and scallop circles. The letters are cut with Serif Essentials Alphabet Die and the Rainbow Sherbet DSP. The pennants are connected using a gold brad in the center of each scallop circle. I eventually added Tempting Turquoise ribbon across the top, though it isn't shown here. Thanks, Georgia, for trading me a piece of cardstock so I could finish my banner. I didn't have quite enough Pacific Point cardstock on hand. You can be sure I will try to not let that happen again.
This die will be getting a lot of use in the next month. My daughter and her two best friends will be graduating from high school next month. I plan on enlisting their help in making banners for their graduation parties.
