it's a banner day--more CM projects

Creative Memories released a banner border maker cartridge this month, and I was so thrilled when I heard about that!  Here are a couple of projects I created with it.  I've used it on tons of projects since then.  Love it!!

 First I created a card using the border maker and the Enchanted line, which I love!  To create the paper-pieced banner border on this card I punched a teal banner, and a black banner.  Then I trimmed the pennant flags off of the black banner and adhered the black trim that was left on top of the teal banner.

 Next I created this scrapbook page.  I punched several banners out of the papers, added some faux-stitching with a marker, and added them to the top half of the page.  I overlapped some, and tilted some to added some interest.  Then I threw in a few paper flowers here and there popped up on foam squares.

Lastly, I used it to create an eclectic border for this birthday page.  I used several border maker cartridges for the border.  And can you believe I created this entire two page spread using only a 6 x 6 inch paper pack and alpha stickers??  All of the borders and embellishments were cut or punched from the 6 x 6 papers.
