Those of you who know me, know that my decorating is pretty minimalist. I don't collect anything so I don't have collections or displays around the house. And any time I buy something, I hear my dad say, "It will only gather dust." In fact, I showed my sister this pretty pendant light from Pier 1 last night, and her reply was, "It's pretty, but how will you clean it?"
So, other than Christmas, I don't do a lot of seasonal decorating. However, I found these cute bottles at the store the other day and I thought they'd make cute Valentine's party decor.
It didn't take long. I ran a few Love Notes hearts through the Big Showww.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=143263&dbwsdemoidt and wrapped some Sending Love designer series paper around the milk bottle. And I was thrilled to find a new use for the mini pompom trim! I even colored a paper straw by sponging on some Real Red ink.
Now...to go find the peanut M&M's that didn't fit in the bottles!
How is this even possible???
Have you seen what the special offers are this week?
I was pretty shocked when I saw these this morning. Project Life makes photo organizing and memory keeping a SNAP! All you need is a box of cards, the accessory pack, some pocket page protectors, and a journal. No more worries about losing your phone and all your photos. They're all in one place, preserved for everyone to see. What a wonderful living heirloom for your family!
Not into memory keeping? I love to use Project Life cards to make cards!!! The preprinted designs make card making quick, simple, and WOW! Are the gorgeous!
Not convinced??? Check out these LOVELY Project Life decor items, from Joyce Fowler, a member of Stampin' Up!'s Artisan Design Team 2015–2016:
Needs some more idea? Contact me to set up a private workshop on using Stampin' Up!'s Project Life cards and accessories with your family and friends. I'd love to show you how to incorporate these beautiful cards into your crafting repertoire.
I could hardly work yesterday because I had this idea in my head. I had to make a collage out of the tree stamps and dies from the Thoughtful Branches bundle! By the time I made it to my craft studio after 8 pm, I pretty much had a vision of what I wanted. I turned the tv on to keep me company and got to work.
This set is remarkably easy to use. I love that you can layer the leaves for added fullness, or trim them to add the spareness of autumn. The hardest part of the whole project, was getting the measurements right for the squares and layers.
The Thoughtful Branches Bundle is available, while supplies last, from August 2-31. Don't wait to get yours; order before they disappear! Contact me for more details!
