Before we get started with today’s post, I wanted to be sure to call your attention to this amazing FREE GIFT from Amy Wolff. It’s included in this month’s playbook which you can get by purchasing this month’s DIGI FILES + PLAYBOOK package here or as part of a monthly or yearly subscription to the DIGI GAME here. Thank you so much Amy for sharing this awesome gift with us! Now let us show you how to use these fun little pennant banners on your own digi layouts!

One of the great things about digital scrapbooking designs is that the turnaround time is so fast from the creator to the consumer. When pennants (some call them flag banners) became suddenly popular, they started showing up in many digital scrapbooking kits. I (Katie) just adore pennants and I confess that I’ve bought several kits JUST because they had pennants in them. True story! Do any of you do that? Please tell me I’m not the only one who will buy a digi kit because of one great element. lol!

After my pennant collection grew, I realized I wasn’t really sure how to use them on a page. I searched the galleries and asked our talented team members to help me out and now I have some great pennant ideas to share with you!

SCRAPPING WITH PENNANTS:

TIP from Jenn: I like to put a larger drop shadow on pennants/banners so they appear to be lifted off of the page, while anchoring it to the page in random places with different types of fasteners.

TIP: Use pennants as a border to anchor your page design. I love way Rachael placed the colorful pennant along the bottom of her line of photos.

TIP: Spread the pennant banner across a 2 page spread. I really love how Melissa carried the pennant over both pages to tie them together visually.

On your birthday I took lots of photos of what you are doing each day now that you are one. You read you book of rellies, checked=

Emily, we had to wait for Daddy to get home from work before you could open your presents and have your cake. We got you all bathed and ready for bed just in time for Daddy to get home. You opened up your present from Daddy and Mummy - a new swing - had a play outside with the lights on, then had your birthday cake and ate it too!

TIP: The curving lines of the pennant adds visual interest to the design of this page. I love how it adds a touch of whimsy! (layout linked for credits)

TIP: Pennants can be short (or used in pieces) to add a small page accent. The horizontal line of this pennant really emphasizes the darling photo! (layout linked for credits)

TIP: Pennants are a great place to put titles! Just add one letter per flag for an eye-catching title image.

TIP: A pennant banner is the perfect embellishment for a party theme. They also work well for circus and carnival pages. Of course you can use them on ANY type of page to add a little fun to your pages!
