Simply Fabulous in Sour Apple

This is just too fantastic...have to share it with you! Ceci S. came in a few weeks ago looking for apple green cardstock and dark brown accents for a shower. We found the right colors in "Sour Apple" from Bazzill and the lovely flocked brown paper in the Lush Collection from My Mind's Eye. I made her promise to take photos so we could share with you.

The monograms are printed on Bazzil Cardstock first and then cut into 8.5" circles. I believe they used a laser printer and the texture to the cardstock wasn't an issue at all. It looks professionally printed...I have a sample in the shop!

Notice the simple green and brown band on the favor box? So simple, so chic!

If you're thinking this looks like something straight from a magzine, you're partially right. Ceci and her sister borrowed the concept from a magazine but personalized it for their own event.

Thanks for sharing Ceci!

April Showers & May Flowers

Handmade flowers are a HOT trend right now. I'm seeing them everwhere in magazines and blogs. In March, I taught a class that involved making ribbon flowers and it was such a hit that I'm doing a flowers technique class in May! I'm still gathering unique ideas and making samples but I wanted to share a few sneak peaks with you! We'll learn at least a dozen different flower projects that require few to no special tools or dies!

May Flowers Class
Tuesday, May 11th and Saturday May 15th.
Anytime All Day

Eggstra Uses For Glimmer Mist

This morning, I'm cooking breakfast, super excited about our Tattered Angels' class today and wondered, can I dye eggs with Glimmer Mist? So I washed out my shells, bagged 'em up and brought them to the shop. Answer? Yes, you can Glimmer Egg shells! So if you're looking for a creative way to decorate eggs this weekend, stop on by, pick up some glimmer mist and you'll have the sparkliest eggs around!
