I completely forgot to post pictures of the garter I made my niece for her wedding. Her theme was a romantic glitzy bohemian nature theme. The ceremony and reception were just amazing! And she was a lovely bride. Here is a link to pictures of her bohemian shower on her blog Vie De La Fete. My niece and her wonderful maid of honor pulled it together. They are both so talented for party designing and decorating. And here is a link to pictures of her AMAZING wedding. And here as well.
Here are a couple of my favorite decorations they had at the shower. Simply beautiful! Take a look at their blog Vie De La Fete for more amazing images. Pay close attention to the little gold plastic animals, and adorable flowers in tea cup. Just so cute I can barely stand it!
Today I am becoming best friends with my envelope punch board. I just received my first card commission, and need to become proficient at making envelopes. The owner of Nacreous Alchemy needs a pack of mini cards and envelopes to hold little business cards, and receipts. I just love the design I came up with for her. And more importantly so does she. So it's off to fold, and cut, and fold, and cut, and fold again for this evening.
A lovely friend of mine had a birthday not to long ago. I made her a hair comb for the occasion. It's made out of clock hands with a large red glass jewel, then faux finished in a yummy distressed gold color. She admired something similar to it in my EJPcreations shop so I had to make a special one just for her. I made it so it would mimic a peacock feather, but in a very mechanical steampunk neo-Victorian way. And of course since I put so much time into making her gift I had to put equally as much time into the wrapping of it.
I made a lovely little card for her using the new Jenni Bowlin Photo Album stamp. A few weeks ago I posted a video using another one of these stamps in the series making a similar card on my youtube channel.

There is just something that comes over me when I have a My Minds Eye paper pack in my hand. It's a sort of glazed over look while my mind is filling with endless possibilities. I had bought this one (My Minds Eye Portobello Road) a little while ago. So when I found out about the birth of my friends baby boy my hands instantly reached for this pad. Because it has the PERFECT shade of blue for a little boy card.
I just love the look of those Tim Holtz flock of birds stamp against the flags. I put glossy accents over them to make them stand out a little more.
Here is the matching card I made for the new baby's amazing Mommie.
And as a little push present for the glowing mommie. I made her a lovely little clock hand hair comb for her amazing red hair. I have another shop where I make jewelry, hair accessories, and tiaras called EJPcreations.
