Happy Happy Happy



Good morning! I hope you had a great weekend! Be sure to watch my video with some tips for the triangles from Lots of Letters 2 in the post below if you have not done so already.  Gina will be featuring it today on StampTV. Here is another sample I made as a warm up when my set first arrived to show you how to make pennant banners. Be sure to use the line as a guide like I showed in the video rather than trying to bend the border!*   TIP:  Since you are doing multiples of the same word on this design, remember to stamp out the H on all banners before peeling off and switching to the A.  :)  Here I added my letters to the triangles and then added bakers twine with a little Mono Multi adhesive to make the pennants look strung. 
Isn't it amazing how different these triangles can look depending on the orientation and colors, contrasting this with the Dad's Day card I shared with my tip sheet and the harlequin pattern in today's video.  (I am just getting started with what these babies can do, too!) This design is a little bright for me, but festive and just right for a kid's birthday.  TIP: The small elements like the circle and star here would also stamp up some quick matching gift wrap on white paper or plain gift bag.   Now that Lots of Letters (with the lower case) is back in stock, I will be showing a fun  mash up of the caps and lower case together in my next video!

Anything else you'd like to see?  Happy Monday!
