Here Comes the Bride

Babies and weddings..or should I say weddings then babies?? This past week for me has flown by!! Last Monday my girlfriend delivered a beautiful baby girl and I was able to be in the delivery room with her. All I can say is "WOW" what a miracle! Such a different experience to not be the one pushing!! Here in Va the heat has been beyond extreme and this past Saturday was the worst yet~ I think temps reached 105 (felt even worse with the humidity!!) I didn't even want to go outside and swim in the pool!! Could you imagine getting married in this heat?? Yup~ crazy I know but a friend of mine asked me to help her make a card holder for her sister's wedding which was in this heat...she was married outside!! A 2:00 in the afternoon wedding.....yikes!! So here is a picture of what we came up with. There are 4 different sized hat boxes that were painted and covered with the ribbon. The bottom one has a slit that my husband cut to slide the wedding cards in...turned out pretty cute (if I do say so myself!!). Attached some flowers and wanted to know about the stamping...silly me!! From the top: the 'M' is from the Lovely Letters Alphabet (115030)punched out with 1 3/8" circle punch and layered with a Melon Mambo scallop circle. The little pink flower is from the new Level 1 hostess set Because I Care (118384 W, 120118 C). I printed the names of Bride & Groom and cut out using the Big Shot and Scallop Circle die (113468). Stamped image again using same stamp set in Certainly Celery. Layered that onto a piece of Chocolate Chip CS and vanilla taffeta ribbon. The bottom box uses Styled Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware (112454) and the sentiment is from the new Hostess Level 3 stamp set called Occasional Quotes. That's it....pretty simple!! Plus it's a great keepsake.
Now here is what I mentioned in a previous post I would share with you my bedroom~ but I had to dust off my table, clean my room, etc....hee hee! A few months ago I re-painted my bedroom (for like the 6th time)the color of our Soft Suede...just took a piece of CS into Lowes and they matched it...I LOVE IT!! So does my husband and he's glad because he won't ever have to paint in there again!! Anyway...I have been wanting to try our Decor Elements and my style/decor is VERY country..for those that know walls are covered with 'country crap' I don't think I could ever move....there is a place for everything that I own...and they don't want to be disturbed!! So I didn't know what would compliment my style and this it was simple to do...looks like it was handpainted right on the wall!! Here is a close up (sorry about the glare from the flash). I would have a helper though...makes it much easier (I had my 10 year old daughter Regan help). Click here to see the current Definitley Decorative 2010-2011 catalog. Tomorrow's post I will share with you the cards that we will be making mat my next Stamp Camp...and yup you guessed is a wedding card and the other is a baby card!! Take care and happy stamping!!
