Wedding Ideas- Welcome Table

Good afternoon,

So I have just completed a wedding and will share some things with you that we did that might help you. The color scheme of the wedding is Black and Champagne.

So when the guests arrive…. are you thinking about what they will see?


(I took a snap shot of this as we where creating the guest table or welcoming table for privacy of the members attending.)

We had white linens on the tables, with this beautiful champagne sequin runner on it. I used a cute chalkboard easel that welcomed guests and gave them further information. We found letters at a craft store and spray painted those in black and attached them on a wooden board. We also used beautiful flower arrangements in the back ground to complete the look.

Guest Book: Instead of using a book for them to sign, we used wooden pogs, black sharpie markers, and a shadow box found at our local craft store.  The guests signed the wooden pogs and dropped them in. (more on this coming)

Table Assignments: Instead of making individual place cards we decided to use the easels for table assignments. So that the guests could find which table they were at for dinner.



  • I started with black paper using the framelit that was decorative and the big shot and cut those out. Tip: You might try using a dryer sheet or wax paper on your framelit and run it through first before paper so that the paper comes off easier from the framelit. 
  • I  then typed table numbers & names in MDS (My digital studio from Stampin’ Up) on shimmery white paper and cut those out.
  • Adhered the white on to the black with glue or glue dots.
  • To make set up easier… I hot glued the back of the black paper to the easel. This way they wouldn’t fall off and I could set them all up pretty quickly and stored them nicely in a small tote.


No longer

For those of you who have been following me, thank you.  I just wanted to let you know that I am not a independent Stampin up Demonstrator any longer.  It’s been awhile since I have blogged and will take me a bit to over haul my site. My plan is still to show you how I create items and things that I have come to like.  I do still purchase some items with Stampin Up and some items I purchase at my local craft stores.

I just recently created lots of items for a bridal shower and wedding invites, programs, table numbers etc. for a wedding and will show you that.  I think you will love it!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a great day!

Happy Big Day-Fall Theme

Today’s Happy Big Day- Fall Themed was made for my daughter’s Birthday Day.

I found this burlap paper at my local craft store and had to give it a try.

Happy Big Day-Fall theme

I used the big shot die Autumn Accents Bigz to cut out the leaves and stamped the leaves from the Wonderfall stamp set. To add my sentiment, I used the Chalk Talk set with coordinating framelit to cut and tied on a piece of linen thread.  I finished using the Natural trim and attached using a safety pin from the Vintage Trinkets.

More ideas:

You could easily change this one to a thankful card by changing the Happy Big Day sentiment using the Expressions Thinlits Dies to have the Thankful word on top of the leaves.

B&B Challenge #21

Today’s card was made for the Blooms and Butterflies Challenge #21.

Colors used: Crushed Curry, Black, and Whisper White.

First off, I have to say that I had the brown truck come and I’m so excited about my goodies.  I used some of them on this project so I might have gotten a bit carried away but I think the project turned out cute.

I have found several cards like these on Pinterest and thought I would make mine more like a file folder but you could do this for Thank you cards, Holiday cards etc.

Wouldn’t this one be great for a Birthday card at the “office” or change the greeting for Secretary’s Day or Bosses Day?

File folder card-FrontTo start: I used a piece of Crushed Curry cut 8 1/2 x 5 1/2″ folded in half.

Used my envelope punch board to punch out at the top left of the card.

Then I moved my cardstock over to the left where it was marked at 3″ and punched the cardstock again.  Where the valley is at that punch, I then trimmed off from the valley out so that it made a straight edge. Repeat the same process on the other side of the fold if you want 2 tabs.

File folder card-Inside

I also took a piece of whisper white paper and created my “sheet of paper” for the inside.  Cut to the size you want and scored lines across and then I went over the lines with a Pool Party marker so that it looked like a torn piece from a spiral notebook. To finish, I did use a retired punch to get the spiral look along the side.

File folder card-tickets

I also took some whisper white and stamped and punched out the tickets and attached them with a paper clip.

To finish off the card, I used the grunge stamp set to make it look like ink dumped on the file folder and aged it by sponging the edges of the file folder.  I also used a framelit die to cut out for my greeting.

You could even use one of the brown inks (Baked Brown Sugar etc.) to make it look like coffee spilled. Wait that would never happen at the office, would it?
