Victoria Secret Inspired Lingerie Guest Book Album

This week's new design, you may have seen in the shop, but I don't think I've shared it with you all yet. This comes from a Victoria Secret inspired Bridal Shower request.

It's hard to see by the photo, the cover is using some new metallic cover stock I've recently added to my cover supplies. This one is plum purple. I've used some glitter embossed designer paper to accent the name card and the top of the lingerie.

With the evenings getting darker here in the fall I have to rely more on the ceiling lightening in my basement studio rather than the sunlight from the windows. My photo box was packed away a few months ago in anticipation of selling our home-- of which still hasn't happened and we've seen some great houses with wonderful spaces for my new studio slip away because our house hasn't sold yet.

So I hope you'll bear with me through some of my dark photos right now as we hope and pray for someone to come buy our house and are able to transition to a new space.

Hopefully, this close up is a better photo. Can you see the shimmer of the metallic?

This guest book is made to order, so you get choice of cover color, and your inside page design.

You can order it here.

Next week is Thanksgiving. We're staying home and enjoying some good ole family time together for the day and some good food. My husband cooks a mean turkey dinner, if I do say myself. I, of course, am in charge of the dessert this year. It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without a pumpkin pie in our house.

Are you staying in this year or going out?

Either way, have a warm and happy gathering.

NEW Butterfly Elegance Guest Book Design

Today's new design is inspired from a husband throwing his wife a 40th birthday party. The colors were inspired by green, teal, grey, and white party items and M&Ms. 

This is a new made to order design that is now available in the shop this month. 

I love getting custom orders and I love having so many new designs inspired by all of your requests that can be shared! 

I'm not sure if you can tell by the photos, but the butterfly wings pull up from the cover to give it that 3D effect. Down the center of these lovely butterflies are clear rhinestones. 

When you order this book, the butterflies are going to be flat against the cover, but you just have to pull up the wings to give them life since the packing and shipping make them go flat. 

The beauty of this design is in the elegance of those butterflies. 

This is a made to order guest book, so you get choice of your cover color and inside signature pages. 

Because Etsy only allows me two drop down options on the listing when you order, just remember to place your personalization request for the front cover of the book with the name(s) and dates in the Notes To Seller Section during check out. 

You can also drop me a note there, too if you'd like to specify your color scheme or request the butterfly colors. 

I know it's getting close to Thanksgiving now, I'm working on a custom coupon book, and I can't wait to share the design with you next.

The Baby Whale Guest Book has arrived.

I've got a new design for you all today.

Recently, I had a custom design request for a whale baby shower book. Since I can recreate this book and customize the colors of the design to match your baby shower, I'm happy to say I've added this book option to the shop this month.

It's inspired by the sail boat guest book that's currently available here. And like the sail boat book, I've designed some custom signature pages inside as well as a first page that can be personalized with name(s) and date or special saying.

This book is made using mint green cover stock and light blue.

The whale design may vary when I run out of the blue star burst paper and depending on the colors requested. As always I'll keep updating the photos on the listings in the shop to keep them current.

Right now my turn around time is about 3-5 days on orders.  With the holiday season approaching it may start to take longer during those months, so be sure to keep that in mind when needing to order. As always you can contact me and let me know your event date to be sure it will arrive in time.

You can find the whale book in the shop here!

Thanks for sharing and supporting my shop.

New Fall Items in The Shop

I've been in a crafty mood lately and with Halloween and several birthday's this month,
I've been creating some new stuff.

I've added this hand stamped leaf place cards and tags. The baker's twine just really goes well with the tags. You can use them for tying on gifts or favors, but also use them for place settings.

It's only a few weeks away, but Thanksgiving is on its way. 
What are you planning for dinner?

9 Ideas for Using Tea Lights This Holiday Season

I've had tea lights on my mind this week.

Someone asked me for some ideas in a local craft store of what you can do with tea lights. Of course my mind was just racing with ideas and then I got to thinking I haven't made anything using tea lights before. So.... I did a quick scan on Pintrest. Okay, maybe not to quick, because who can get on Pintrest and not get absorbed with all the great things you find there.

But I did find these ideas that include tutorials.

If you're looking for ideas to warm up your home or special occasion with tea lights this holiday season check out these ideas from other paper bloggers:

1. Paper lanterns from Lia Griffith. You can download the tutorial on how to make these here. 

2. Tea Light boxed holders for gifts by Michelle Last. See tutorial here. 

3. Halloween #spook decoration. Find out how to make one here.

4. Floating tea lights in a bowl. Idea thanks to: theartofdoingstuff

5. Wine Glass Lamps with tea light candles and scrapbook paper shades. See how to create them here. 

6. Teal Light Card to "light" up someone's day. Instruction video here.

7. Tea Light Wall Hanging. I love this idea! It's my favorite of all. I'm currently saving my chicken cans to make one. You can probably us tuna cans, too. Check out how to make one here. 

8. Another recycle can project using tea lights. Click here to check out this one. 

9. Spruce up your home this fall with tea light pumpkins! Check it out here.

Got other tealight inspired ideas? Feel free to share them in the comments or over on my facebook page. Can't wait to see them all!

Money Cards Make A Gifting Easy

I've been trying out some new designs and ideas for in the shop.

In my family putting money in a card is still a popular way of gifting for Birthday's, Weddings, Baby Shower's, and Graduations.

Money Cards are nice, but cash still is #1 if you know what I mean.

I found this template design for making a card with a pocket for slipping your money in. There is still room to write a note inside and sign it, or it can be personalized for you to save on the hand writing.

These are just a few of the many designs I've been working on. My mom pitched in to fold these for you. They come with an envelope or a belly band. 

I've got them scattered through the shop, so just click here to go to the shop and choose a section for the event you need. 

Tell me what you think? Do you still prefer the traditional cards or do these money cards work for you?
