HELLO, HOW DID YOU LIKE OUR BLOG HOP YESTERDAY?  We have lots of fun stuff today for you as well!!

I am spotlighting all week the Pennant Parade stamp set with the Pennant Builder Punch.  I LOVE THEM.  They are so cute and I have had fun with them making all these projects.

My projects for today are from my daughter and I stamping together trying to come up with fun things for YOU:

 Above we made the banners HAPPY and DAY.  We created a flag and glued it to wooden skeweres.  The pennants were sewn to a fun ribbon before attaching it in front of the newsprint banner.  At the top we crimped some cardstock and glued it  with Tombow Multipurpose Glue for a topper.  Kind of like a cheer leader's pompom, right?  Rah, Rah, Rah!!

You can see both words on this pennant banner.  Again the pennants were decorated with punched out letters to spell BIRTH DAY.  The pennants were sewn by machine onto a fun ribbon before being glued onto the wooden skewer.  Besides the rah rah pompom deco on top, we added a large pearl topper.

 Here we made a HELLO banner with wide ribbon flowing from the deco straw. We also used the little decorative stamp from the Pennant Parade Stamp set - looks like it could be a snowflake, a flower or just an accent.  It could be a pixie stick if you wanted to do that - wouldn't that be cute for a child or for anyone?  After we took the photos, we realized we needed to sponge some ink around the edge of the newsprint DSP to give it some depth, which we did but forgot to take another photo.  We were just talking and laughing and having too much fun, I guess!!  I hope you can imagine how cute it looked with the shadow of colorful blue ink all around the edge of the decorator paper.

We also made a WELCOME banner to use as a decoration with some home made goodies like cookies or cupcakes to take to a new neighbor, a new teacher, or a new member of your church.  We used some designer series paper for the large flag, and the pennants were made from solid card stock again sewn onto ribbon by machine.
