I have Halloween fever!!!

Yes it's true! I haven't even completed the wedding favors yet, but I have Halloween on my mind.
This is my first Halloween project of 2011. It is an easy one.
Start with a frame from the $ store, add striped cotton ribbon, buttons, scrapbook paper, adhesive, glue gun, and the pennant punch from Stampin' Up.
You end up with this cute little decoration to put on a table or desk.
I think the possibilities are endless with the pennant punch, so come back soon for more ideas.
I hope you are having a great week!
I'll be back soon.

Homemade Wedding Invites & Favors

This card was made with paper from Joannes. The stamp, embossing folder and heart die cut are from Stampin' Up. We wanted simple elegance with a dash of color for our October wedding. John has a creative eye and helped me with this.
We accidentally discovered something pretty cool, if you use 2 sided, 2 color paper, the color on the back will show through when you emboss the paper, creating a very cool effect! Take a close look at the black paper.
Used the same tools from Stampin' Up for the petal cone and small pizza box. Again going for simple elegance. Used vellum for the heart with our names and date. Only change I will be making is to get more of the stamp on the petal cone and add a small gem in the flap.
If you need any dimensions, directions, or information on the Stampin' Up tools, please let me know.
See you soon!
Hope you have had a wonderful week!

Wedding Ideas -- I need some creative advice!

These are my preliminary (which means "rough") ideas for our wedding invitations and favors.
The scroll stamp in black is a keeper for sure, the paper will be a little more textured and not stark white. All because two people fell in love is a keeper too. I know the card has to be bigger and needs a little more detail.
The box size is good to put personalized M&M's in. The heart on the box is too plain.
We like the black and white and want to add a little bit of burnt orange or rust.
Help!!! Does anyone have any suggestions? Need to make these "pop" just a little more!

Hope you are having a great week!
