Bridal Shower!

My good friend Karen is getting married in May! We threw her a bridal shower at Scarlet Tea Room in Pasadena. Her wedding color is yellow which is what inspired me to make this card!

I also made a placecard for everyone. I'm not sure if it was needed since pretty much everyone knew each other, but I thought it was a nice touch. I used my new Martha Stewart blossom punch and stickles for the center.

We sell this great paper daisy bouquest kit at Paper Source and I just had to make one for Karen! I always have a problem with floral tape.....everytime I use it, the stem always gets very sticky when I wrap it around. In order to cover the stickiness I wrapped a ribbon around it :)

JCrew Shopping Bag Turned Gift Bag

I needed a baby boy gift bag for Nate and Celine's present, and I thought why don't I just recycle a shopping bag! (I tend to do that everyone once in a while when I want to make a matching card/bag set). Since the card is green and brown, I thought the JCrew bag would be perfect.

Since I had a lot of space to work with I made 2 different designs. Yay for recycling!
