Now, on to my project for today. I created this cute but simple banner. This is my first ever banner, and I have to say, I'm pretty darn proud of it! It is simple - nothing extravagant, but I'm a very contemporary/modern/simple styled person when it comes to my home decor, so this fits RIGHT in! 

So here it is!! The paper has a nice shimmer to it, which you really can't see in this photo, but I really love the subtle Christmas colors in this paper. Off the top of my head, I'm not sure which company this paper is from. If you'd like to know - be sure to ask in a comment and I'd be happy to let you know.

Ok... so here it really is! : ) I apologize for the photo. I wasn't able to get a great shot because I waited until the sun went down (before 5 pm) and wasn't able to get good lighting after dark. For the banner I used the Scraptastical Kreations Banner Blitz paper piecing pattern set/ cutting file

NOW... I'm sure you allllll want some yummy blog candy, right?!?!

  8. I bet this banner is wonderful in person, it is such a shame to put all that hardwork into a beautiful project and then not be able to get a good shot. I hate when this happens to me. But truly it is stunning!
