Journaling says: Whoops, I forgot journaling… but hopefully the pictures are worth a thousand words!
Note: When I saw the embellished tags by Leah Farquharson of Blue Bird Chic that she made for her assignment for the American Crafts blog I asked if I could have them :) She so graciously sent them to me, along with a super cute cross stitched fox button! I was so excited to scrap them. And then Amy Tangerine gave me a manila tag that she made with a Kelly Purkey October month stamp! So much goodness all on one page :)
How to: What can I say, I love making banner pages! When I find a style I like, I run it into the ground :) Trim patterned papers, photos, and tags into pennants and adhere them in three curved rows across an orange grid paper background. Add pennant stickers between some of the pennants. Stitch across the tops of the banners using black thread and alternate between straight and zigzag stitches. Drop brown and white spray mist and black India ink across the layout. Make a title above the tops of the banners. Cluster embellishments on the top left, botton, and right edges. Add additional stickers and embellishments to finish!
