DIY Wedding Programs


My cousin recently got married and asked if I would make some wedding programs for her. These were pretty quick and simple. For cost savings, you can get two programs for each 8.5 x 11 piece of paper. I used Elegant Eggplant cardstock and cut it right down the middle and then scored it at 1.5″ using my Simply Scored from Stampin’ Up! I then used the edgelits to cut the detailed fold-over. Tip: Use post-it notes to hold down the edgelit so that it does not move when you are running it through the Big Shot. In Microsoft Publisher, I layed out the wording and printed it on Very Vanilla. These programs cost under 50 cents a piece for materials (paper, ink, glue)! Thanks for stopping by!

Stampin’ Up! Kraft Gift Box


So I created this cute little gift box for a bridal shower gift. These kraft gift boxes from Stampin’ Up! are so perfect to put a gift card in. They come in a pack of four and are $2.95. I wrapped some retired Sycamore Street DSP around the box and added a retired Pop Up Posie to the top of the box. I cut a tag out from the new framelits Chalk Talk and stamped the sentiment from the Pop Up Posies kit in Soft Suede. A bit of ribbon completed the box.

I made this box to go with the card shown HERE! I think it will make a cute little gift for the soon to be bride. I am also submitting this for the Anything Goes challenge at Stampin’ For the Weekend.

Stampin’ Up! Bridal Shower Invitation


I have a bridal shower I wanted to show you today. My cousin and I made these elegant bridal shower invitations for my other cousin. I can’t take all the credit though, I only helped design and cut a bit of cardstock. My cousin did all the work..check out her blog HERE! She is super talented in stampin’ and especially sewing! Anyway, back to the invitation. We started out with a base of Baja Breeze (now retired..sad face) and used a retired embossing folder from Stampin’ Up! on it. To make the embossing pop a bit more, we sponged some Baja Breeze ink over it. The white was cut out using the Labels Framelits and a simple satin gray ribbon was added for an elegant touch. Thanks for stopping by!

Wedding Announcement – Palm Trees


I created some wedding announcements for my soon to be sister-in-law for their cruise wedding. Super quick, clean and easy! I layered Night of Navy and Melon Mambo cardstock from Stampin’ Up! and then printed in navy on Whisper White cardstock. The font that I used for the names is called Scriptina and I downloaded it at Thanks for stopping by!

Wedding Programs


I wanted to share with you the programs that I made for my wedding. I would describe my wedding as a DIY wedding so I made the invitations and programs and tons of other things to save on money. I started out with some Basic Black cardstock from Stampin’ Up! and added a lime green satin ribbon. I designed out monogram/logo in Publisher. The program had a total of four pages. Pretty simple and easy!

Printing on Burlap


I am super excited to show you today’s post. While browsing Pinterest, I found so many cute ideas for printing on burlap, so I wanted to give it a try.  Here is what I came up with:

Printing on burlap is pretty easy, you just need the following supplies:

  • Burlap which you can get a most craft stores
  • Freezer paper (not wax paper)
  • Iron
  • Printer
  • Scissors

To print on burlap, just follow these simple instructions:

  • Cut a piece of freezer paper to 8.5″ by 11″.
  • Cut a piece of burlap a bit bigger than that.
  • Place the burlap down first and then place the shiny side of the freezer paper onto of the burlap.
  • The dull side of the freezer paper should be on top. Iron the freezer paper and burlap together.
  • The freezer paper will begin to stick to the burlap.
  • Once the burlap and freezer paper is bonded together, trim the burlap to the size of the freezer paper.
  • On the computer, design any thing you want! Choose your favorite quote or last name or anything! I downloaded some new fonts from in order to create my layout.
  • Most sites recommend using an ink jet printer. Place your burlap/freezer paper into the printer as you would a normal piece of paper and print!

These would make great wedding gifts or Christmas gifts! Thanks for stopping by!
