You Are Fab

Hi everyone! Ready for the weekend? Any plans?

It's time for this week's CAS-ual Fridays Challenge. This weeks challenge is:

So, banners or flags on your projects. Easy, right? Instead of a string of banners, I made one jumbo banner:

I ran across THESE banners that are free downloads. I loved the images, but I seldom use PDF files. When I saw the CAS-ual Fridays assignment, I decided to figure out how to convert a PDF into a cut file for my Cameo. I found THIS tutorial, and it was surprisingly easy.

I first die-cut the banner in orange, but then decided to die-cut it in purple. I never put purple on cards, so I decided to switch it up. :) Here's a close-up of the sweet sentiment:

A little stitching, a little inking, a little twine, and I was done.

    I think this is brilliant - and me too, I don't use a lot of purple. Been trying to, now that I noticed I don't.

  3. Yep, yep, I think you are, my friend!! Totally Fab! Love your one banner (I get so used to seeing them in groups.)

    Can't wait for the good news tomorrow. Your bacon card was a RIOT ... absolutely loved it!! And that it was being pulled by an airplane? SOO quirky and wonderful! Seeing bacon in the sky just cracks me up.

  4. I am in love!!! I love love love the colors, the sentiment and the little birdie!

  5. No YOU are fab, you really are! I love the die cut banner, such a pretty color and great stitching. Yay for Round 3!!!!

  6. This is such a great idea!! Love it!

  7. I would have never thought to just make one big fat banner. Awesome idea. I'm always intrigued to see what you think of for's never the ordinary and I'm always a huge fan.
