I had a really fun weekend and am playing catch up today! My sister is getting married at the end of September and my niece, my mom and I hosted a wedding shower for her! Wonderful afternoon full of LOVE! We are all so happy for her!
I was in charge of favors – and here’s what I made –
The bags that I used are the Petite Cafe’ Gift Bags in the Holiday Catalog. What I didn’t realize til I opened the first bag was that they are lined on the inside – so they are perfect for food gifts – like caramel corn, cookies, – in other words, they are food safe!!
The toppers were made with tea lace doilies, designer series paper and the scallop circle and circle punches. The small flower was also a punch – from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, and finished off with a little “bling” – a rhinestone. The “for you” stamp is from a hostess set called Hello There.
Next, I made a Project Life by Stampin’ Up! album for my sister. I decorated the album cover with some ribbon and a tag –
I included pocket pages and a set of Love Story card collection. We had all the guests at the shower write a message on a card that will go into the book, along with lots of pictures that were taken.
And of course, she can keep adding photos – from their wedding day, and beyond! This makes a great gift!!
Please contact me if you have any questions on the products used on these projects! And come back tomorrow to see the other gift I gave!
Here are a few other photos from the day –
And one of the things I loved was getting to spend the day with my “big girls” as I affectionately call them! Miss them and am always so happy to spend time with them! Faith wasn’t able to attend – she plays volleyball and had a game – we missed her!
On Sunday, I helped Anna move into a new apartment! She started a new job a few weeks ago but couldn’t get into her apartment until yesterday – so we got her somewhat settled and moved in – she has an adorable apartment!!!
Today my daughter Sarah is moving to a new apartment! She has some friends helping her but I will be helping her get settled also! Phew – never a dull moment with us, I guess!!!
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy this beautiful day!
