BANNERMANIA: banner for all seasons. Season 1 of 5: Halloween!!!


Bannermania Season 1: Halloween!

The spooks will love this beauty! It's cuter than Casper and won't scare the little ones!  It's actually quite simple! Now you all know I'm koo-koo crazy for banners. This idea struck me like a bolt of lightning right out of a witch's broom in the middle of the night such that I had to get up and write it all down!!! I hate when that happens! I have always loved the Chalkboard Banner Simply created Kit BUT, I wanted to make it a banner for all seasons.  This is the first in a series of 5 posts to highlight this fab kit featuring the Mingle All The Way stamp set. This Halloween version also highlights the Fall Fest stamp set with coordinating (and bundled!!! stamp and framelits to save you 15%) and Fall Fun Framelits dies. These are all in the Stampin' Up 2014 Holiday Catalog which you should have by now (if not, email me cogbill22@yahoo.com)!

Want to make this beauty and the 4 other holiday banners? Come to my Merry Everything Banner Class on Tuesday, September 30th @ 6:30 pm. Email me today to reserve your spot! Class fee is $48.00 due by Wed, September 17th for early bird pricing!  cogbill22@yahoo.com
