Summer Stripes

I mentioned in my last post about my Frames of the Month, I sat down and wrote out what I want each month to be about; for June I thought summer - so I set out to find the perfect background paper, I knew I'd be quilling a sun for it but didn't really know what else I wanted to include - I needed another element or two to even it out; I finally decided on flip flop's. I searched through my papers, way too many papers; and found this new one I bought recently called 72 and Sunny - something like that - absolutely love these papers and bought way too many of them.

I thought originally I would do something solid or a tone on tone dot like last months, but instead I chose this super summery stripe pattern - LOVE it! I covered the mini frame with this paper, added a quilled sun in the top corner and a cute quilled pair of teal flip flops for the bottom - they even have a little glitter bling on them (if you look closely). I actually made myself this frame for my desk at work - I rarely do that, but I really liked the way it turned out - I'm going to put a picture of my two rascals from last weekends slip-n-slide escapade, they had so much fun.

My rascals and their slip-n-slide, so much fun.


Frame of the Month - May

I have a customer who wanted a different frame for each month, I hadn't even thought of something like that; instead of cheese or beer of the month; you'll get a themed mini frame at the beginning of each new month throughout the year. She's going to keep it on her desk at work and each month she'll switch it out with the new one. Of course I mentioned it to my coworker and she wanted in too; she makes me laugh - she wants one of everything I make.

Here is the frame for the month of May, I'm still figuring out what I'll do for June although I'm thinking something sunny or fruity - since I think my bigger fruit frame turned out super cute.


Buttercup Yellow and Fushia Name Cards

I wanted to share my latest custom order I received through etsy, it was for 39 table name cards in yellow and fushia. The cards themselves are from Bo Bunny's Double Dots card stock in Buttercup Yellow and the quilled flowers are a fushia color, I wasn't too sure about her color combination at first but when I finished and had all of them sitting in front of me I thought they turned out so pretty. I worked with Jillian showing her samples of the double dot papers to help her pick a card color, she asked if I could preprint the guest names; which was absolutely doable; I hope she's just as happy as I am with the end result. If you're interested in a set for your next gathering please feel free to contact me, I'd love to work with you to create the perfect little addition to your table setting.
