love banner

Millan.netHoly cow, I finally got this post to look
right! It took me forevah to get the
pictures on without them showing up sideways!! PFFFFT! Where's that rotate button?!

Sorry, I'm supposed to be talking about Smiley from now Smiley from

Darlene over at Splitcoast is hosting this weeks Crafty Secrets challenge. Here's what she says, " The challenge will be to "SHOW US YOUR LOVE"!! And that topic is totally open to your interpretation!! That could be your favorite CS product that you just LOVE or ... a Valentine's Day card ... a Just Because card ... you decide!" So if you can, go on over and play!

I made this LOVE banner using Crafty Secrets Cotton Scraps sewn on to the scalloped pennants. I made 4 pennants that spell out LOVE. No stamping on this project.

I cut the words out of an old childrens school book that I got at a flea market, it had big print, perfect for things like this.

I punched the flowers out of old dictionary paper and a hymnal. The button on the L flower is cloth covered and it matched the Crafty paper perfectly!

I made each pennant a different color and had fun finding all the embellishments to match.

Supplies: Paper - Crafty Secrets Radiant Paper Pad, old chlidrens book and hymnal. Acces. - Romance Cotton Scraps by Crafty Secrets, pink garland, off white and lavender lace, Stickles, ribbon, pom-pom trim, felt & crocheted flowers by SU!, Martha Stewart gems, pink heart gem sticker from Hobby Lobby, lavender droplets and buttons. Tools - SU! Bigz XL Pennant Die (I used the small one), flower punch, sewing machine.

I hope you can feel the love today, thanks for stopping by!
