Jumbo Clothespin Photo Holder

I found these Jumbo Clothespins in a dollar bin at my local "M" craft store. They came painted in a wild pink & orange print that I didn't care for, but I knew I could change that! So, with some scrapbooking paper and a few embellishments, this is what I came up with...

Here it is holding a photo of me & my sister (she's the blonde, I'm the brunette).

Canvass Photo Frames & Decor

I'm always looking for a special way to display my favorite photographs, so here's my latest photo creation.

I purchased a 12 x 12 x 2 canvass (it's much thicker than standard canvasses, but that's what makes it stand up on it's own). And then I added embellished papers that I inked the edges on, some crystals, ribbon, & photo corners so that I can change out my photo whenever I want and not damage the piece. **The white paper is where a 5 x 7 photo would go.

Then I wanted a companion piece, so I did a smaller canvass and decorated it with coordinating embellishments & added the first letter of our last name.
Here are the two canvasses together...

And here they are with a photo added in (I couldn't find a 5 x 7 photo, so I left the white paper in the photo corners and adhered a 4 x 6 photo to the white paper).

Chip Clips

I use bag clips all the time on almost everything & anything that comes in a bag. They are great for resealing chip bags, pet food, powdered sugar, bagged cereal, frozen apps...you name it! Now you can close your bags in style! How cute are these!?!?!?

And the fun thing about these is that the color & pattern possibilities are endless!

Towel Basket

It was my mother-in-laws b-day over the 4th of July Holiday weekend and I had been struggling trying to figure out what to get her. My husband came up with this towel basket idea and now I want one for our bathroom! I think this would make a great housewarming gift too.

The basket contains: 2 Super Large Bath Towels, 2 Hand Towels, 1 Bar of Oatmeal Soap (it smells fantastic by-the-way), and 1 Sea Sponge. I used the Cricut to make the card & towel tag and the stamps I used are from Papertrey Ink.

A New Twist on Wedding Guest Books

Guests can write their name, address & special wishes, marriage tips, advice, etc...for the bride & groom on the included cards. They are filed alphabetically by last name, so it makes a great address book when doing your thank-you cards too!

A coordinating sign reads: Please share your wedding wishes for the bride & groom.
