I love working with banners, but I noticed my knowledge to make good ones lacked...
I'm very happy with all the suggestions and different styles in this training, so I know better how to use the techniques from now on. Shelby is wonderful and explains and shows step by step, clear guidelines that make me feel confident about creating my own banners in the future.

very insightful with easy to follow instructions. Made me super confident to explore and create

Very challenging on the curvy banners which was great because I definitely needed more insight into putting them together. The projects were fun, too.

I always wondered how to make a banner. They always look hard to do and make right. This course has helped take the fear from making banners. I will be practicing in my dot journal using banners for my titles and whatever. Thanks.

A fun skill that adds personnality to all your projects. It really helps titles and words pop out of the page.
A lot of different variations are presented, all explained. The possibilities are never-ending!
The projects are a fun application of the course and have helped me better understand in what situation a banner could be useful (journals, my postmail, signs, adds...).

The presentation on banners was excellent and informative. I outlined each banner in my bulleted journal so I have a reference for future use. Thank you.

Easy course, suitable even for beginners! The banners looked intimidating, but are actually easy to draw due to the good and clear instruction. Useful for those who bullet journal or scrapbook to decorate pages.
