A Simple Note Card

Here is a simple note card I made. I used DSP that had octagons and then used the octagon embossing folder on top of it. Then I stamped on the reverse side of the same DSP with the Just For You stamp in Pool Party to give it a cool effect. Super simple and cute card.  Enjoy!

Engagement Party Decorations

My cousin is getting married next year and her fiance was in town (he lives in Tennessee). So, I decided to throw them an engagement party. First because I love them, and second because I knew I would get to make really cute crafts. The one I want to show you today will of course feature Stampin Up! I have an epic tree and deck in my back yard. If you remember from my Easter blog I hung decorations on it. Well, we wanted a cute way to feature some pictures at the party so I thought of the tree. We hung pictures with twine all over the tree. The front had a picture and the back had a fun fact about the couple. We put the pictures on some card stock and then clipped them to the twine with a clothespin. We covered the pins with washi tape. It turned out so cute! Take a look.

Here is my beautiful cousin and a larger view of the tree. 

And just for fun here are some of the other decorations. 

It was a beautiful party and so much fun to plan. 
I love you Haylee and Phillip and wish you all the best!

New Catalog Blog Hop!

So if you haven't seen it already you have to check out the new catalog (ask me for one). It is beautiful. For this month's blog hop we are featuring some new products from the catalog. Hope you enjoy and are inspired. For my card I used two new sets; Mosaic Madness and Label Love. I also used the new simply pressed clay. It is amazing! You can use the molds to and add color so you can make any color you want! It's so much fun. It is wedding season so this is a card I gave to someone at a bridal shower. 

Here is a closer look at the rose mold I made. 

Happy hopping!
