Thanks to all of you for visiting us on this FUN HOP - I have enjoyed your comments and praises. Thank you very much,  I hope you have enjoyed seeing all our projects from both the New Idea Book and Catalog as well as the Holiday Mini Catalog. 

If you do not have a current Stampin Up! Demonstrator, please consider letting ME be your Demonstrator and crafting coach.  I can mail you a Holiday Mini Catalog to get you started. OR you can easily order from my website 24 hrs a day by clicking on my signature below.

I did some more flags, but for a more mature recipient this time.  I used You're a Gem stamp set to stamp "Queen for a Day" words, the Artistic Etchings stamp set for the crowns, and Funky Four stamp set for the poppy parade color flag.  The fleur de les is from a retired stamp set.

I used a clear blue plastic cup and filled it with skittles which holds up the straws or the flagpoles. I used the mini pompoms in daffodil delight from an earlier mini catalog to edge the cup.  I tied the two stamped tags onto the trim with bakers twine.  More mustard card stock is punched with the large tag punch, and the stamped images are punched with the small tag punch.  They layer so nicely and make perfect partners to any of your punched items.  I really use my punches a LOT, almost on EVERY project.  LOVE PUNCHES!

I used the First Edition DSP for this flag and pennant.  The penant was cut out with the Pennant Builder Punch.  I used pool party card stock and ink, as well as early espresso ink for the stamped image.  To tie the flag on pole I used Early espresso 1/8" ribbon.  To tie the pennant onto the pole I used linen thread.

I like how bright and cheery the poppy parade ink and card stock is on this flag and pennant.  I used 1/8" ribbon in poppy parade to tie the flag to its pole, and linen thread to tie the pennant.  I again made "Cheerleader PomPoms" on the top with crimped pieces of card stock and glued them with Tombow Multipurpose glue.  Tombow is very tacky and adheres quickly and strongly.  Give it a try.

This is the most important flag and pennant in the set, because it tells my friend how I feel about her.  Don't you love the Wild Wasabi card stock and ink I used on the First Edition DSP here?  My friend is a WILD girl, so the color fits her perfectly!!  ha just kidding.

Hope you have enjoyed our blog hop.  We plan on doing this again soon.  Keep checking in on my blog to find out the date of our NEXT blog hop, won't you?

I will be announcing the winner of my blog candies in the next few days.  Stay tuned -  if you didn't leave your email address or blog address, the only way you will know if you won is if you check my blog.  GOOD LUCK

  6. What a great week of flags and banners. I think this project is great because youcan customize it for any occassion. I it is pretty enough to use as a center piece at a party and then you could make small pots to give out as favors. It was great visiting your blog during this hop and I hope to stop by for the next hop.
