Country Picnic Bridal Shower

Hello everyone! I am here today to share with you a fun bridal shower that I helped plan for a sweet young lady at our church! We went with a Country Picnic theme and we had so much fun! Today's post can also be seen over at SHE'S A SASSY LADY since I am the guest designer over there! Here are a few pics and then I'll give you more details under each one:

These are the centerpieces we made featuring the, ever popular, mason jars! The mats are 12x12 Kraft paper that has been corner punched with a Lucky 8 punch and an 11x11 bandanna paper that was also corner punched with my Lucky 8 punch. The "Mr. and Mrs." tag was from the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge and was cut at 3".

This was a cute journaling prompt tag that my friend found on Pinterest so I printed them and then created a tag to fit it! This is a tag that I found on the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and, using my Gypsy, I unlinked the H and W to stretch it to the size I needed it to be! Even with all the advances with the Cricut, which, for the record, I LOVE----- I still LOVE my Gyspy!! :-)

This little purse that I made from the Bridal Shower cartridge, was made to hold little cards that everyone wrote a little sentiment on. 

This shower was a gift card shower so we found an oval bucket to stick skewers in that we hot-glued mini clothespins to, to hold the gift cards. (Sorry the picture isn't that great but I forgot to take a pic at home so it's a little busy in the background! :-/ ) The "Mr. and Mrs." is from Tie the Knot and the Monogram B is from Tie the Knot as well. We put some paper straws over some of the skewers for more pops of color! 

The bride is the one in the center and she was thrilled with the theme!


We had catered box lunches and this was our place setting.

This shows a little more closely, the corner punches.

I cut hearts from Sweethearts and punched holes to "tie the knots"! :-)

Another view of our yummy place setting. :-)

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you're having a super fun, family and friend-filled summer!

You are my Sunshine!

Hello everyone! I am here to share a fun birthday banner that I made for our youngest grand baby who just turned 1 in April!  First of all, here are a few pics of our adorable little Collin! He just melts my heart!!




This cheesy little grin makes me want to grab him and start smooching him! :-)

Ok! Now to my project! I made this banner using the Creative Memories Total Sports cartridge, Hello Kitty Greetings, Mickey and Friends and Mickey Font.

These pennant banner shapes with the letter cutout are from Total Sports. I simply attached them with colored twine to a piece of natural twine.


These suns that I used as banner anchors and the large sun at the bottom of the banner are from Mickey and Friends.

The letters for COLLIN are from Mickey Font and the sun shape here is actually a card that I folded over the twine and is found on Hello Kitty Greetings!

Thanks for stopping by today! Now, go make something beautiful! :-)
