Here is the banner we made the other night at our St. Patrick's Day banner class.
The challenge that I had with this banner was to keep it short enough to do in a 2 - 2 1/2 hour class session. I decided to go with the native word for Ireland and then embellish it with all of the fun St. Patrick's Day items that are usually associated with Ireland.
I created the two emblems on the ends of the banner with the Stampin' Up! My Digital Studio. It is a digital publishing suite that I am beginning to use quite a bit to fill in when I don't have the right words or motif stamps to finish my projects.
But it is more that just a word processing program...you can make wonderful photo books and have them professionally printed by Stampin' Up! It is easy and fun! The publishing program is only $19.95.
