Monday Montage Birthday Banner!!

Hello! This is week #13 of the Monday Montage Blog Hop! Oh, what fun we are having! I hope you will have fun hopping with us today. Make sure you hop all the way around to see all of the great projects we have to share with you today.
I am still in birthday mode, so I am going to share two birthday themed projects today. Those of you who know me, know that I love banners! Banners add such a festive touch for any holiday. And in my kitchen, I have the perfect little spot to hang little banners.  So, the first project is a banner that I made to hang up to celebrate every birthday in my family.

Here is a close up:

I tried to keep the banner neutral, so it can be hung for either a boy's or girl's birthday. The colors and images in the Birthday Basics DSP was perfect, don't you think? I added Gumball Green Cardstock for a pop of color, and Very Vanilla Cardstock stamped with the Dictionary Background Stamp also. I sewed punched circles and banners together to make the banner even more festive. I can't wait to hang it for the next birthday celebration!

Next I have a card to share that I made for my upcoming card class featuring products that you can earn during Sale-a-Bration!

I made this card for a swap I did recently for an upline meeting at my awesome upline's home! It was so much fun! Here is a little tip, you can either color your stamp with markers to make the image multicolored, or color it in My Digital Studio, then print it out! That is what I did, and it made making multiples for the swap a piece of cake (no birthday pun intended)!
