Banners, Banners, Banners

I am in birthday mode making banners and garland!!!

Isn't it fun to mix it up?

I am waiting to go on a "trip, trip, trip" tomorrow for a scrapbook retreat.  I have plans or a project life layout, cards and invites.. maybe even some burlap boutonnieres... Can I be so productive?

This banner and garland is for a Spring Theme birthday.  Clothespins just scream birthday!!  I would have loved to have used more tulle but it took away from the banner. :(  The butterfly garland was made using the Big Shot and the Stampin Up Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die.

 This is for a Team Umizomi birthday and it plays off of a character named Geo.  He wears a special belt with shapes.  The blue piece plays off another character's screen - his name is Bot!  If you look closely I added a bit of trim for some details.

And this last banner is just a sample sample as I was playing with number on my Cricut - this is from the "Cuttin' Up" cartridge and uses Stampin Up paper. The garland is made from the Stampin' Up Serif Alphabet Bigz Die.
It feels like Spring... maybe even summer here in Newfoundland... so, I think I'll enjoy it.

Have fun today!
