Beautiful Centerpieces

Great idea from Better Homes and Gardens:

Bands of scrapbooking paper and strings of bells add interest to these store-bought vases. Cut a strip of scrapbooking paper long enough to wrap around your vase and slightly shorter than the height. String bells, buttons, beads, or other embellishments onto embroidery floss, wrap several times around the vase, and tie it to hold the scrapbooking paper in place. Fill the vase with fresh flowers of the season. Line up multiples down the center of your table, or place one at each place setting.

Holiday Table Setting

Had to share this idea.  I found this on Martha Stewart's site and thought it was so cute.  Take a piece of scrapbook paper and cut a triangle in the top right corner and use it as the place card... CUTE!  If the paper is double sided, I say even better!  Cut some plain paper a little smaller than the triangle and attach so you still see the outline of the design on the other side but have a place to write the name.

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Ok, so it isn't a winter wonderland out there yet, but here's hoping for snow this year.  I know lots of people dislike the white stuff, but it is impossible to make snow angels and snowmen in the summer/fall/spring.  I know I am grown woman and all but snow makes me feel like a kid again.  It brings me back to the hours upon hours I spent making houses for myself out of the white fluff in the backyard.  I'd be out there after the sun went down and the outside light went on and still enjoy it to this day.  So, since there is no snow, I am creating it with my cards :)  Made 3 today and added a white ribbon to the one I made yesterday... Enjoy :)

Paper Christmas Wreath

So, I have been this crazy craftin' lady for the past couple days.  Today I finished this paper Christmas wreath using the Basic Grey Jovial Line.  I made it by accordion folding paper and then putting cutouts on top of them.  They are hot glued to a cardboard ring.  I'm really loving it ..... Thinking this should be a class! 

 Winter, Valentine's Day, Spring time.... Oh the possibilities!
