Flower Power!

I loved the Tootsie Pop flowers that Kay made here. Mom asked for a favor idea for their Sigma Beta Phi Founder's Luncheon coming up in April and I knew these would be perfect! So I grabbed all my retired card stock and headed to my parents house for the weekend. Mom had two of her friends and members come over to help make them. Mom and I had pre-cut all the flowers and had them ready to go in bowls, separated in bowls. We had a few laughs, but were able to make 60 of them in less than two hours. The only thing left for them to do is bend up the petals before the event.
Happy Stamping & Knitting!

Wedding Invites

My best friend since high school's daughter Nikki is getting married. I told her I would make her invites and they are now complete! So 130 invites are done and in her hands ready to be mailed. It was a long process with the embossing of each one but I love how elegant and beautiful they are. The colors are Basic Black and Melon Mambo and they are embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I used the corner rounder to soften up the corners. I did save time by taking the cardstock to Fedex once it was formatted and had them print and cut them for me. It cost about $23 to have it all done! What a time saver! And I like the way the ink printed better than what my printer here at home did. Nikki came over today, and we worked all day to get them done! So I think she is happy with them and of course, they are one of a kind, and made with our own hands! Happy Stamping & Knitting!
