If you've ever been on a cruise before, you'll know that before the ship departs, there is always a wedding happening on board. While the majority of the ship is busy exploring the Lido deck and the buffet, there are wedding ceremonies happening in various areas of the ship. It's always so much fun to see the brides later, as they make their way through the ship in their gowns.
Packing for a cruise or a destination wedding would require an amazing attention to detail. You still want the day to be beautiful and memorable, but you just don't have the room to pack a lot of stuff. Large favors and thank you gifts take up precious space. These delicate and detailed floral treat bags would be just the thing. Not to big or bulky, you could pack several of these without them taking up a lot of room.
I wonder how many brides we'll see on our October 2017 Stamping Cruise? Have you gotten your tickets yet? Don't miss out on your chance to craft and cruise your way through the Western Caribbean on the Oasis of the Seas. Imagine...a whole week where all your meals and cleaning are done for you, so you can craft away to your heart's content for an entire week in our private conference room. Relax, enjoy, and have fun! There will be four exclusive classes, with all the supplies you need, included. The rest of the time, explore the ship, sit by the pool, visit new places, see a show, and make new friends. Husbands, friends, significant others are welcome to cruise, too. The Hubs will be joining us, and I'm sure he'll spend the week at the pool and exploring the sights.

When I think of spring, I think of weddings. As a young girl, I dreamed of being June bride. But being a June bride in Spokane, Washington meant you needed to have a coat or warm wrap, as spring and early summer can still be quite chilly once the sun sets. We used to wear hoodies and coats when watching the fireworks on the 4th of July!
This week, I had a club hostess ask if I had any wedding cards. I had sold all that I had at a craft fair on Saturday, so before my class today, I made these three cards for her to choose from. Imagine my delight when she told me she wanted all three of them!
I last used the Detailed Floral Thinlets on Valentine's Day, to make a special card for my Hubs. I'd also used this bundle with this same club this summer, but once they saw these wedding cards, they asked if we could use it again next month, too.
So beloved is this bundle , that I've decided to feature it all week on my blog. I hope you join me as we discover different ways to showcase these delicate floral details. I think you'll be surprised that while intricate, the bundle makes for quick work. All three of these cards were finished in less than an hour.
Which one do you like best?

Chag Sameach! My first introduction to Passover was a young girl. At church one Sunday, the sermon was given by a young man from Jews for Jesus. As part of his talk, he called for a volunteer from the congregation. Naturally, I raised my hand. Little did I know that a Passover Seder had been prepared to be tasted. I don't remember much about it, but suffice it to say it was many years before I could eat raw horseradish again!
I feel privileged to have been asked to participate in this Passover Blog hop. Since Passover is a time of celebration, I thought I'd add some glimmer and sparkle to the cards today. I liked using the little hints of Bermuda Bay ink and paper with the black and white Inside the Lines Paper and Any Occasion Stamp Set from the Sale-a-Bration catalog make it feel like spring. This card one the favorite at my Stamping Bee team meeting this month, too.
This Friday's sketch challenge was rather fun. It takes very simple layers, and gives you a fun opportunity to showcase some of that designer series paper you have collected. It also gave me the chance to use the Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper and 3/8 Metallic Duo Ribbon from the Sale-a-Bration catalogs.

I'm gearing up for spring craft fair season and the bunny from the Basket Bunch bundle makes the perfect topper for treat bags. Stamp him in Basic Gray, cut him out with a coordinating thinlet, add a bit of color to the ears and his bow tie, and he's ready to go! So quick and easy. These treat bags will be front and center on my table this Saturday.
Jelly beans...love 'em? Hate 'em? And what about those black ones? I can't stand them, but my son loves them. One thing's for sure, they're a big hit with children and adults alike at spring time shows.
