Some of my projects ...

Please be patient with my as I try to get this blog exactly how I would like it to look.
I am still waiting for the best header and color combination I can make/find.
Things will likely be changed up a bit in this process.

Wedding Gift Set

A coworker of mine got married yesterday so I made her and her husband a gift for their home.

The wooden letters are purchased from Walmart. The pattern paper is Chatterbox. Most of the ribbon is May Arts or Offray. The flowers are Prima. The brads are Making Memories. The felt pieces are Fancy Pants. The little tags are all from All My Memories.

The first picture is a gift bag. The bag is from Walmart. The pattern paper is from Around the Block. The cardstock is DCWV. The ribbon is Offray. The "happily ever after" comes from the Cricut Storybook cartridge. The "ever" was cut a second time, run through a xyron and then coverd with glitter embossing powder.

The other two pictures are the card to go with the set. The card is inspired by Susie B. The cardstock is DCWV. The inside is scored with my Scor-pal. The heart is cut from Storybook, run through a xyron and then embossed with glitter embossing powder. The "best wishes" is from Alphalicious cartridge. I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder. The ribbon is from Offray.

I hope you enjoy seeing them. I really hope the couple enjoys receiving them. Thanks for looking!

I LOVE the present, and the rest of it too! I have really been wanting to alter some of those letters, but have procrastinated. Thanks so much for the wonderful inspiration!
