Technique Blog Hop! It's a Banner Day!

Today is just a happy day... I'm tickled pink and the grass ISN'T greener on the other side... I think it's pretty green with some polka dots on this side!  LOL!

Thanks for joining in on our technique blog hop!  If you're coming from Debi's blog, you are on the right track! This month we are featuring the banner technique on page 35 of the ideabook, but with a twist.  Our goal was to find something other than triangles to create banners with.  A blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique. 

To keep on hopping, please visit Judy's blog next!

I used my favorite Sophia paper pack and the banner is made from the Workshop On The Go little leaf stamp, hemp, mini-glue dots and our pearl opaques!  Cute!  The stamp set is Polka Dot Alpha and of course I've been addicted to our clear cards!

Here's just a little photo tutorial that hopefully shows you how I added the leaves to the hemp.  Just put a mini-glue dot on the back and then fold the stem down over the hemp!  Easy Peasy.  It's nice that a little adhesive is still showing a bit because it'll help you arrange your banner with a little tack and when you're ready, press more firmly to make it STICK!

Have a fabulous and blessed week!

P.S. The packers & movers decend on our house on Monday (eeeek - that's tomorrow, isn't it?!)  So, I may be a little incognito when it comes to new craft ideas for a teensy bit.  Fear not... Studio J is on my horizon so stay tuned!!!
