Believe Banner & BLOG CANDY!

WOOO HOOOO!!!  Preview Week has begun for Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Collection 2014!  Yesterday we shared our AMAZING Guest Designer (check out Create with Connie and Mary to see who they are!) and today I get to share my Preview Project with you (and give away some BLOG CANDY!)

Believe Banner

I have a wonderful fireplace/mantle in my family room and it is such fun to create banners to hang from it!  I wanted to do something different for it this year and just LOVE the Under the Tree Specialty dsp from the Holiday Mini!  So I used my AWESOME Star Framelits, the very cool Larger than Life Alphabet set, the fun Cheerful Tags set and the delightful Cherry Cobbler 1″ Linen Ribbon (and you have to see what I did with the ribbon!) to create my banner!

Here’s a couple close-ups of the letters so you can see some of the details…
