Welcoming Spring

The weather here is finally nice and I love to bask in the great tempurature. Besides scrapbooking and papercrafting I also make wreaths. You will never see me without one on my door and I think that last spring was the first time that I displayed a wreath that I did not make, it was a glitter egg wreath, for Easter, but when the hail hit, the next day it looked like all the little chicks had jumped out of thier fancy eggs and ran away. So this year I saw an example of the wreath that I liked in the Southern Living at Home catalogue and decided to reproduce it. Finally the stems I liked went on SALE and I picked them up and made the wreath today. It took me about an hour but I love the final result and I think I over wired those Hydreangea blooms in place! I look forward to having this displayed for the rest of the Spring and now my mind is rolling with ideas for a Tropical Summer Wreath. If you would like easy instructions on how I made this, comment or email me!

Summer Idea Book Kick Off

So here I am writing about my Summer Idea Book Kick Off Party before it has even started, I guess I am hoping for big things. This cute monocromatic tag is the Make n Take for the day, 90% Close to my Heart products*. I choose Tulip as my Exclusive color for this tag and used Candy Apple Red Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels* and a Dimensional Elements Border (chipboard) as a mask which gives us the cool swirl in the background. Using Tulip Ink, I stamped the May Stamp of the Month and cut out the Thank You, then adhered it to the tag with 3D foam tape. I also added the Just Blooms Paper Flower and Butterfly in Tulip. Threaded White Daisy Organdy Ribbon thru the hole and tied with Tulip Embroidery Floss. To finish it off I used our Clear Sparkles and made it shine. This whole project takes 10 minutes to make and shows like you spent hours slaving over it! I hope you try this Close to my Heart project and send it to someone you are thankful for!
