Scrap-Mart: Good Luck Banner

I created a banner out of Spellbinders™ Presto Punch machine and punch templates. Today is a special day for a good friend of mine, Beth. She is running a half marathon in AZ...definitely not in Chicago where we both live! LOL!!

It came out of a conversation between her and her sister about vacation - spending time running on a nice sandy beach...somehow turned into running in a half marathon in the desert sand! NOTE TO SELF: never discuss vacation plans with Beth's sister!!!! LOL!!!

Good Luck Beth Banner by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Cardstock: WorldWin Papers; Patterned Papers, Cloth Pins, Cord, Canvas and Chalkstock: Canvas Corp.; Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts (S5-029 Nested Lacey Pennants); Punches: Spellbinders Presto Punch Machine and Punch Templates(P3-006 Stars Punch Template; P3-003 Rectangles Punch Template, P3-009 Labels B Punch Template; P3-007 Flowers Punch Template and PT-F03 Noble Roman Punch Template); Adhesives: ScraPerfect and SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L (Black Foam Squares)

There was a huge stash of Canvas Corp. products so you'll recognize some of the items such as the canvas, patterned kraft papers and Chalkstock. I used the S5-029 Nested Lacey Pennants to mat the canvas triangles. Not only will it make it stronger but looks pretty to frame. Then I punched/embossed shapes as background to the words "good luck beth" which were also punched/embossed with the PT-F03 Noble Roman punch templates.


Next I punched/embossed stars and flowers to embellish the banner just to add a bit of accent and secured with wet adhesive and foam tape.



Pin up the embellished pennants with mini clothes pins on to the cord - it's ready to display!

So here's to you, Beth! Good luck today!!

Beautiful Banner! I bet she is SO excited! The only time I would run is if there was a big dog chasing me or a guy with weapon, and then I'd have to see how big the guy was! LOL Loved how you explained all the details! Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to comment on my blog! Love Penny
