I got it half price for 18.00. Color me happy! I have it in my living room right now, but I plan on putting it outside and planting real flowers/ plants in it. I love it when I can get something I want at the price I want. Who doesn't?
I also had great fun with my friend, Sue. She came over and we worked on a wedding album she wants to give as a gift. I learned a few new tricks myself. Sue makes jewelry , so she had good ideas for her album.
One idea which I think I am going to use is instead of using wire or a swivel clasp to add my chunky charms to the spine, I am going to use ribbon. Sue came up with this idea and it looked fabulous!
|Love this idea!|
The cover was Sue's design. She did a great job. I love the pink and black combination. We used some purple Stickles I had to add a little pizzazz to the front.
The roses and tags with lovey sayings made the inside look amazing.
I had never slanted the belly bands quite so much ,but it really holds in the tags much better than
straight across or up and down. I think I will try this idea, too.
I went to a Stampin Up party at my sister, Rochelle's house and purchased the new tag punch they had in the catalog. I think this will give a nice look to the tags I use in the future.
I am working on two projects right now. Well, three if you count finishing up the rehearsal dinner invites. They are almost done.
The other two are an 8 x 8 album using Graphic 45 By the Sea and some Vendor thank you notes for my son's up coming wedding. I will put pics up of those projects when I am done. I would like to do a video of the 8 x 8 album, but I have to remember how to do it. And I need to buy a tripod which would make my life so much easier. My sister says that Walmart sells them real reasonable. So off I go shopping....wish me luck!
