Patterned Memories

Each month I teach a Stamp N' Scrap Class (DETAILS ARE HERE).  This month I decided to try something new by creating a pattern with a combination of cardstock and designer paper.  It went well and everyone liked it.  Like anything new there are some "learning curves".  When I created the triangles along the edges I originally cut them into 3"x3" squares then cut the squares on the diagonal to make the triangles.  However, after the class I would have cut them 2 1/2"x2 1/2". This would give a bit more room between the sections and make it easier to layout. So, if you're gonna give this a try, work with the smaller square. 
The 'tape' in the corner is actually a stamp set. It's called "Tape It".  It mimics Washi Tape!  Love this because now I can create it in any color or size I'd like.  You can view the Tape It stamp set by CLICKING HERE 

 I created this layout so that it would be suitable for anyone regardless of age or gender.  The Bermuda Bay and Raspberry Ripple, although a combination I would haven tried on my own, worked well together.
This banner was made using the Petite Pennants builder punch. I made a few knots with ribbon and used glue dots to secure them in place, between the banners.  EASY!
