Pinkies Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We're showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin' Up!® Autumn/Winter Seasonal Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!

If you have arrived here from Jenny's blog, hello and welcome.

There are so many gorgeous products in the new catalogue it was hard to single out just one project to focus on for the blog hop.  I absolutely adore Halloween and love to make my own decorations so when I saw the new Halloween Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit I knew I had to have it.

The kit is designed to coordinate with the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit which contains 18 blank canvas pennants, jute twine, alphabet and image stencils and a Stampin' Spritzer which is enough to make two or three banners depending on how long each banner is.
I started by deciding the order of my banners then used the sponge daubers to add a backround  and lettering to them using Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Basic Black inks and stencils from the kit.
The rosettes come with the kit and just need glued together.
I then finished decorating my banners using the glittered accents, ribbons and buttons from the kit. I had so much fun creating this banner and can't wait to make another with a winter theme using the rest of the kit.
If you would like to make your own banner I will be holding a class on 6th October
