Flags, Flags and more Flags!

So, I’m a little late to the party on creating flags for layouts.  I finally bought a punch to see if I’d like it.  And I love it!  I’m always looking for ways to showcase as much of the patterned paper I hoard buy as I can.  This is a fabulous technique for doing that.  The punch made pretty quick work of it and I snipped off the sides of a few of them to vary the sizes.  I can see using this technique on more layouts in the future.

The layout I’m sharing in this post is just a fun one documenting something my husband says to me when we go out to eat.  He knows that almost as soon as we sit down, I’m pulling out my camera taking plenty of photos.  So, when the main course arrives, he knows not to dive in right away.  He’ll wait until I’ve taken a few shots then he asks:  “Can we eat now?”  Too funny!

What other new or not-so-new trends are you feeling right now?  I need some ideas!

  6. Really great layout. I love all of the layering. I've never used banners/flags before. Maybe I need to give it a try!
