Bridal Shower and Wedding Invitations

Last year at this time I had been married for almost a month and was so proud to be done with wedding invitations that I had hand-made...

Now jump forward and I am finishing up wedding invitations for my cousin and her fiance, who are getting married this August (yay for them). And bridal shower invitations have been out for a bit

Here are some sneak peaks of the bridal shower invitations...

The plan...

Dresses, glued and embossed...

Final product! Cute, aren't they?!

And now here are some sneaks of the wedding invitations...

Time for a change...

As you may notice, this blog has recently undergone a name change...

Though I still enjoy scrapbooking, I have ventured out of the box and have taken on crocheting, card-making, photography and things not all paper-crafted...

I will be updating the blog as I move forward with changes...

Pinterest menu

I finally got around to making a weekly menu after what I had seen on Pinterest. Though not complete, it's getting close! Just have to add a container to put recipes in!

Super easy to make and cheap too! I had all the paper supplies and got the frame at a local goodwill for $2. I debated on keeping the plastic in the frame (it wasn't glass) and decided to keep it to help protect the paper. I used my cricut to cut out the words and the month buttons for the clothes pins. I modge-podged coordinating paper to the pins, adhered the day abbreviations and used adhesive foam to stick the pins to the outside plastic. The only thing I may have changed would be to have used lighter paper so it could second as a dry-erase board... But I love it!

Molly + Justin Wedding | Paper Quilling

Well, I tried my hand at paper quilling. I enjoyed what the finished product ended up like, but that being said, this will be the first and last time I do this - I surely do not have the patience!!

My intention is to put this in an 8 x 10 shadow box frame.

Anyways, this is a present I made for Molly for her bachelorette party  :)

Table Numbers

My husband's step sister is getting married in just over a week and she asked if I could make her table numbers. I wasn't sure what to do at first when I knew her colors were navy blue and red and she had made mention of a garden theme.... Then I realized I had the perfect paper from one of my DCWV stacks. So using the Calligraphy Cartridge and MS Seasonal I was able to make a nice base with red cardstock and the blue floral paper. Knowing gold was an accent color, I popped the red numbers by offsetting them with gold.
