From FAIL to Meh…

So I have to tell you, when I started on this project I thought it was going to turn out WAY better than it actually did. This was actually quite a FAIL for me because this looks nothing like what I had pictured in my head. And trust me when I say that what you’re about to see is actually a HUGE improvement over what I originally came up with. Let’s just say I was having an “off” day…LOL.

Anyways, another huge trend hitting the crafting community right now is Pennants. I’ve seen tons of pennants popping up on Etsy. Small strings of pennants for decorating food tables. And big pennant banners for home or party decor. So of course you can count on Stampin’ Up! to be on top of the pennant parade with a new stamp set AND a coordinating punch! Appropriately enough, the name of this new pennant themed stamp set is Pennant Parade, and it’s coordinating punch is called the Petite Pennants Punch. I used both of these fun new items to create this birthday invitation/thank you card set. Like I said, not my best work, but still worthy to be shared 🙂

I think my next project using these new items will be a little better-planned…haha. But still, I do love this stamp set and punch. They really do make for great elements for a card or a scrapbook page. You can even string some of the little flags together and create some uber cute table banners for a treat table or cake table! I mean really, there is so much you can do with these versatile little pennant images.

Well, I think I’ll leave it at that for this project. Don’t really have much to say about it…haha. But I hope you get an idea of how you can use the stamp set and punch together!

Coming Up: A little look at my branding strategy and an update on my New Year’s Resolution goals…uh oh…lol.

Until next time…
