Family Banner

Do you ever resent wasted paper??  I love the look of banners but am often frustred by the paper that is unusable.  In our Eco-Friendly world, my stamping friends often take my extras and use them in their other projects. 
 
HERE is a fun and easy project to do with
NO Wasted Paper or Time while
PACKED with FUN!
Using our Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper (#130814) cut into 6" x 6" squares. 
 
Using our Stampin' Trimmer (#126889) and SCORE at 3" (down the middle).
 
CUT the now SCORED line (at the 3" point) with the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#113439), Big Shot Magnetic Platform (#130658), zig-zag Finishing Touches Edgelits.  (The Magnetic Platform holds the Edgelit EXACTLY where I want it - on that scored 3" line!)
CUT these strips at 2" intervals and the Designer Series Paper is not wasted!
 
Here with the Typeset Alphabet Bigz (#127553) the letters F A M I L Y.  Adhere them over this Daffodil Delight (#119683) card stock that was punched with the 1-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch.
The SNAIL adhesive (104332) allows for this to stick together (like a family should) with clean lines and layering. 
 
String it together, our Daffodil Delight 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon (#126872) for a clean look that mimics the pattern in the Epic Day paper.

This zig-zag look is ideal, it's the same on both sides!
What a FUN Swap this was at Convention!
 
My girlfriends and roomies loved this banner, it's easy creation and conservation of paper! 
 
Hang a banner (or two, three, four - lol).  Celebrate occasions, seasons, memories and
what is important to you!

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
