Where have I been??? Making wedding projects

I am still here...just coming off a very long cherry harvest and trying to recharge my batteries!!!

Although there is not much stamping going on...I am making fun projects for my nephew's wedding coming up this Saturday.  I got this jar print and cut from the Silhouette Store and added the text before cutting out like a gazillion of them for fans. It is HOT in my neck of the woods!

The canvas flowers were cut from a DCWV 6x6 Burlap Paper Stack, glued on misc buttons and small sisal rope for finishing touches. The fans are two sided with a personal message from the bride and groom on the other side.The handle is glued in the middle of two jar cut outs. The Mother of the Groom and I  made almost 100 of these. I have also etched a bunch of wedding presents like mugs, plates and jars. Busy...busy...busy.... Today I made a couple simple banners the bride wanted and tomorrow a few signs as well. 2 more days to go!!!!

I do want to share with you that I have joined the Silhouette Challenges Blog as a new team member for 2015!  How fun is that?

I am so excited as  you know almost every creation I make has a Silhouette cut element of some sort included! In Silhouette is cutting away some vinyl signs and signs for the little ring bearer as I type this!

Please take a few minutes to pop over and join with a Silhouette creation of your own-our challenge for August #28  is Anything Goes!

I should be back to my regular crafting soon!


Pin It!

That challenge team is lucky to have you!!! Congratulations!
You are the sweetest lady ever - look at all those fans you made!
It is hot here too.
Glad you had a good cherry harvest - better than no cherries at all!
And look at all those fires out West - what a shame.
