Valentine Banner

Ok, this is new to me as I have never created a banner at all.  But all in all I am happy with how it makes me feel!  I just wish I took pictures of the top on the mantle and I replaced all the photos with something to do with Valentine's Day!  This year my DH and I will be celebrating out 15th wedding anniversary Feb. 13th!  I had a great birthday today at the Cheesecake Factory and got my birthday Tiramisu...need to figure out how to get my camera picture sent to my email so I can post it!

Anywho...I used the Tim Holz Valentine paper from his Seasonal stack, for the letters I used the Glitter Cardstock stack from DCWV.  There are heart shaped rhinestones on the bottom of each pennant and I alternated between red and clear.  On the letters I used red rhinestones to accent them so they stand out more.  The hearts are from SCAL shape inventory and the red glitter cardstock I got from Archievers.  It sure does sparkle, but it really doesn't show up in the pictures too well.  I used my Crop O'Dile for the first time to set the eyelets and was disapointed when the white finish cracked.  Anyone have a solution for that?

Thanks for stopping by and all comments are welcome!  Have a great night!


  1. Happy birthday to you! Love your first banner - it looks great!!
