Creating Banners with Chic Tags

Hello and Happy Tuesday! I'm up on the Chic Tags blog today showing how to create a fun banner on your layout using Mini Icons and Photo Toppers. I used the fun and new School House collection!
You can mix and match different icons and photo toppers...what is great about these embellishments is that they fit for pretty much any subject! 
Next, I layered my pieces, adding in pennants that I created with a punch, as well as stamped images from the School House Nerd Acrylic Stamp Set (love the name! LOL)

I then stitched through the top of my banner and added some small embellishments such as enamel dots and wooden veneer starts. I also stamped a few of the hand drawn stars included in the clear stamp set. 

For my title, I used one of the School Sayings Free Cut files found in the Chic Tags shop.
I love to cut most of my titles and shapes with white cardstock. I then use a light mist of spray ink to help my cut file stand out.

Stop by the Chic Tags shop to see this collection as well as many more fun papers and embellishments. And if you haven't checked out the October Exclusive kit, you must! Lots of fun embellishments and tags! 
Have a great day!
