All-Occasions Chalkboard Banner

All-Occasions Chalkboard Banner

Who has all the time in the world to craft whenever they want?! (Anyone raising their hand?! Anyone?!) I know I certainly don't! As a mom to three young children, my time is very limited. But creating is important to me, so I make it happen. And when I do create, I make it count.
I LOVE using Stampin' Up! kits. They make things fun, easy, and quick. AND I get to create something beautiful! What’s not to love?

For my latest kit creation, I used the Stampin' Up! Chalkboard Banner Kit (item # 133795). I LOVE banners. They make my heart happy. I love hanging them from my mantel, and I have been trying to make one for each occasion. Remember those three kids I mentioned earlier? Yeah . . . well I don't always get my banners made. So I sat down with the Chalkboard Banner Kit one day to figure out a way to make that kit work for me all year long. And VOILĂ€! My All-Occasions Chalkboard Banner was created!

I chose the word "family" for this banner because that is definitely a word that goes with any occasion. Then I added interchangeable banners on each end of the word with a clothespin.

So now I can EASILY change my banner for any occasion! No re-stringing the banner and no making a new banner. Just unclip the last occasion and clip on the new occasion. Easy, peasy.

The Chalkboard Banner Kit truly is AMAZING! It comes with SO MUCH product and the colors in the kit are so bright and cheery. And here’s the best part: the kit can be used for all occasions. This specific banner was designed using just half the kit! All I added was a bit of coordinating cardstock (in the kit colors), some ribbons, and the clothespins.
I hope you love this project! I’m hosting a night at my house with some friends and we’re all going to make it. You should make one, too! Everyone needs one of these in their home!
