Mother's Day Workshop Projects

Mother's Day is coming up soon! Join me this Saturday, April 25th to make these cute projects to give to the special women in your life. Of course, they don't have to be for Mother's Day (you can use different sentiments on them)--they would make great birthday or thank you gifts, too! Pick and choose which items you would like to make or make all 4 for only $15!! Starts at 9am at my home--call or e-mail for details and directions!

($4) Mini-purse album opens up to 9" x 9". You can add pictures and journaling as desired.

($2) Mom card (your choice of sentiment stamped inside) includes a coordinating envelope. You could also stamp JOY or someone's initials to use for a different occasion.

($6) Boxed set of 5 monogrammed note cards. This set will include one card of each color shown, 5 coordinating envelopes and a sturdy clear box (not pictured) decorated to match.

($3) There will also be a decorative hanging sign available to make SIMILAR to this, using the same colors, paper set and stamp set (please note: this is NOT the actual sign we will make). Size of sign to be made is approximately 6"x6".

Another month gone...........boy, have I been a Blog Slacker!!! March was such a busy month, with lots of things happening around our house. Two of the most exciting things are that Emily lost her first tooth (and has 3 others loose) and we went on a cruise to Mexico for Spring Break. It was Em's first cruise and she loved it! I even have pictures to share, as soon I make time to download (or is it upload??) them!!!

At least I have a project to share today!! I actually made this card a while back, and just never got around to posting it. I am not overly thrilled with how it turned out. I think I would have liked it better with either a color background, or a color flower. As it is, I think it is TOO white--kind of washed out! However, it is made with my FAVORITE paper pack, Emporium, so that alone makes it worth sharing!

supplies (all CTMH, unless otherwise noted):
Emporium Level 2 paper pack
From Me to You stamp set (from promo card kit)
Connections stamp set
Just Blooms--white daisy
Bigger Brads--heavenly blue
ribbon--from my stash

colors: cocoa, sweet leaf, twilight, buttercup, vineyard berry

size: 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"

idea from: another blogger (but I can't find which one--sorry!)
