Welcome to the Summer SVG Shindig Blog Hop!

If you have arrived from Julietta's blog you are on the right track. If you would like to start from the beginning, click here.

All the projects today were made with svg files only.

I decided that since I am "the banner queen" and becasue it's been at least two months since I made a one, and after all 4th of July is right around the corner...

 I think this my my favorite banner of all time, in fact, I might just leave it up until next year. Actually, my bestie already has it hanging in her house, across her mantel. :)
Here are a few more close-ups.
The star rosette is an svg that my amazingly creative friend, Jessica at svgattic.com designed. The file is called Vintage Patriotic Cupcake Wrappers, you can buy it here. It was meant to top a cupcake but I modified it to make it work with what I needed. Jessica gave me a coupon code, "shindig", use it when you checkout and receive 40% off your total purchase! Good through June 26th midnight!  SVGAttic.com
Here's a better view, my angle outside was kinds weird. Super cool huh!?! Jessica has a Facebook page too, if you go there and "like" her and tell her I sent you, I will throw your name in two more times for today's blog candy! 
The banner flags and the mini flags are svg's from svgcuts.com, the set is called Made in the USA.
The font is a Lettering Delights font called Mon Cherie, you can get it in svg form or just as a  font.
 Here are a few more things:

1. Paper is DCWV Nautical Stack & Glitz17 Cardstock.
2. The cording is cotton 1/2" welt cord that I purchased at the fabric store, you would normally use it to make welting on pillows or soft goods. I liked the natural feel it gave and I hand it on hand, so it was free!
3. The banners measure 5", the flags measure 4", the scalloped star measures 5" (the three pieces, were each cut at 5" x 7.25"), the letters are 2 1/2" tall with the shadow, and the smaller star's range in size from 4" to 2". 
4. Everything was cut using Make-the-Cut and my Silhouette.
5. The twine and ribbon were from my stash.

The design of my banner was inspired by this banner that I found on Pinterest.com.

 So no blog hop would be complete with out some sort of blog candy! I am giving away some Peachy goodness!
