A Banner Day at KatScrap Studio

Here's the banner that I made yesterday at our Build A Banner Workshop with Jennifer Priest.  Jennifer had an awesome selection of papers and her exclusive embellishment bar filled with ribbons, tulle, buttons, sequins and other goodies that we were able to use to decorate our banners.  We had a great time creating our banners, they were all so different and cute.  One student made a Halloween banner, her daughter made one with her & her sister's name to decorate their room and another student made a birthday banner for her son.  If you missed this workshop, you missed out!  We will try to get another Banner Workshop going this summer - let me know if you want your name on the list!  Once you know how to make these banners, you will want to make them for every occasion.  I know, I'm already planning what theme banner to make next!

Build a Banner Workshop
A Prima Endorsed Class
Saturday, MAY 22nd 
12 - 3 pm

"PrimaDonna" Jennifer Priest will lead you through creating a custom banner of your very own using paper you choose during class.  She receives requests to create her popular custom banners from across the nation.  You'll have access to an extensive embellishment bar full of glimmer mist, Prima flowers, Prima ribbon, crepe paper, glitter, punches, Prima papers and cardstocks, and more to create your own banner.  In class, we'll cut a custom saying or name of up to 9 letters to adorn your banner.
A little Info About this Class
You will create a 100% custom banner in the class using Prima products.  This means you can choose whatever colors you like for your banner and whatever theme: birthday, graduation, baby, your family name, an inspirational saying, Christmas theme, whatever - up to 9 letters.
You can purchase additional kits or bring your own chipboard to make more pennants if you want more than 9 letters.  You can also split your 9 letters into two separate banners if you want! 
  You can also bring your own paper if you like - be sure to bring a least 5 12x12 sheets of patterned paper and 3 sheets of 12x12 cardstock.  If you want to decorate BOTH sides of your banner so you can use it for two different things, or hang it over a pass through where you'll see both sides, then you are welcome to do that in the class and bring extra goodies if you want to add those.
This class is about creating a custom banner for YOU and to give you the skills to create them over and over on your own. Supplies: Craft glue Dots, Craft Knife and Mat, Paper, trimmer, scissors, ruler & strong liquid adhesive.
This class is a bargain at $28!  Call today to sign up before we fill up!  (626) 398-0355
