No Squares Allowed

Pin It

Remember I mentioned that I wanted to use this palette for inspiration?  Well, I finally finished something and here it is!
It's Tuesday and at Top Tip Tuesday this week we've issued the challenge "No Squares".  As you know, I was in a games class all last week, so I made myself a banner-in-a-card to celebrate finishing the class. :)
While I was getting supplies for making some games, I came across a huge package of oval coasters that were just begging me to take them home. :)  They were so sweet, I just couldn't say no!
The papers are from October Afternoon Seaside set, the yellow polka dots are Amuse, kraft paper from who knows and PTI dies. 
It's not quite as big as the banner I made for Thanksgiving, but it is so summery I adore it anyway.  I also like the idea that this banner can have a cover that can be used as a card from too. :)  There are enough goods left to make another banner that says "celebrate" so it'll be a bit bigger. 

So come on over and join us at Top Tip Tuesday!

I've hung this banner at these fab parties:
Fussy and Fancy- Summer Theme
Dream Valley- Summer Theme
Kraft  Outlet- My Favorite Things (coaster projects are my newest fav!)


  1. What fun projects! I love those colors - hope you are having a great summer :)

  2. Fabulous banner, love the way it started off as a card and then it opens up, great project.
    Thanks for joining in at Fussy and Fancy this week.

  3. What a beautiful banner! It's always fun to make something we can display in our home. Beautiful project. Thanks so much for sharing it with us this week at The Kraft Journal!

  4. What a fun banner; love the colors and all those layers on each circle. So fun!

  5. Now that is a card worth keeping! Beautifully done. I would hang it up in the winter to help me think warm thoughts :)

  6. Just popped in to tell you that I LOVE this banner! What a wonderful idea. I am totally going to make one of these, if you don't mind me casing the idea from you? ;) Hope your weekend is going well.
