Bridal Shower Decorations & Favors

Hi Friends!

I wanted to share with you some pictures of my friend's bridal shower that I helped with.  Her sisters were hosting it and asked me to help with the decor and favors.  Of course I was excited!  Her colors for the wedding are dark purple, leaf green and tan.  What a fun combo!  We decided to do two banners with those colors and the bride and grooms initials.  I had to call on my SIL to help with figuring out a few things as this was only my 2nd banner ever!  Thanks, Miss for helping!  It was a huge hit!  The favors were post-it note holders with a cute little purple flower.  I just love to make these and they make the perfect favor!  Thank you so much for visiting today!

Baby Card

Hello Friends!

Today I have a baby card I made for a cousin of ours who is having a baby girl any day now!  I just love my border punch my sweet cousin gave me for Christmas... it is from Stampin' Up! and it is so easy to use!  The "baby" sentiment is from Pink by Design's set "Big Thoughts" and the "girl" sentiment is from My Mind's Eye "Fine and Dandy Tickled Pink" Collection SO CUTE! 

Thank you so much for visiting today.  Have a wonderful day!

Valentine Thank You Post-it Note Holder

Hi Friends!

Today I have some Valentine's Day inspired post-it note holders.  I had 2 amazing Mom's helping me with the Kindergarten Valentine's party and I couldn't just say "thank you", I had to show them how much I appreciated their help.  The tag on the packaging is my very first "hybrid" project.  I did the elements in Photoshop and then did faux stitching around the edge!  Not very daring, I know, but I'm warming up to the idea!

The stamp set I used for the "thanks" is from the Pink by Design Store using the set "Big Thoughts". 

Thank you so much for visiting today!

Husband's Valentine

Hello Friends!

Today I wanted to share with you the Valentine I made for my Husband this year.  I cut a heart by hand and mounted it on chipboard.  I then stamped with glue the background design and then flocked it!  It was my first attempt at flocking... although I love the look, it is certainly messy!  The bow is some mesh I stole from my 2 year old's pirate princess dress up.  It was falling off, so I just helped it come apart.... :)  His gift was concert tickets to the Black Keys but I didn't have the actual tickets before Valentine's Day, so I stamped some keys and put the date, in hopes he'd get the pun.  He sure did!  Hope you all had a wonderful day of love!  Thanks for visiting today!

Pencil Cup for my Daughter

Hi Friends!

Here is a pencil cup I made for my 6 year old.  I just love the Pink by Design "All Girl" set.  I stamped different sentiments and attached them all over the cup.  It was so fun and she was super excited that it matched her room!

Thank you for visiting today!

Note Card Box

Hi Friends!

I apologize for the delay in posting...  Have had a hard time this past month.  Anyway.  I wanted to share a note card box I made to apply for the Pink By Design Design Team in January.  Although I didn't make the team, I'm still thoroughly in love with their stamps.  They are soooo cute!

This box used to be a jewelry box from Dillard's.  I covered it with some paper from SEI called "Chick-a-Doo".  I got it at a scrapbook expo in 2009.  The flowers were a brass embossing template and the sentiments were from the Pink by Design set called "Big Thoughts".  This is probably my favorite set! 

Thank you so much for visiting today!  I appreciate it!
