An unusual souvenir

Hello everyone!
Let me start at the beginning...I've recently started saving packages from my scrapbooking supplies to alter and re use in different ways. I never got to alter any packages before going on vacation. Then, a few weeks ago we were in Athens, Greece and my husband decided to bring a somewhat unusual souvenir....Shhh!

     Here's the little souvenir... I'm not saying which one it is. I used the paper inside the packaging and traced it on a piece of scrapbooking paper to make the new background. On the right you can see how I kept it in place. I sewed it around the main branch in a few places. 

The end result...well, almost. I'm going to write the date and location. I'm also going to cover the back with a matching piece of paper and maybe a small picture of us at the location...

Since we got back, my creative mojo is nowhere to be found! Haven't done a single LO yet, despite actually having printed pictures. How sad!

Whether my mojo wanted to show up or not, I needed a wedding card for my husband's cousin. I know full well she won't see this, so I feel I can show you guys.

Cardstock, sticker, border punch and bling are all by Recollections from Michaels

The cardstock is a pearly, shimmery white and the accent and envelope are shimmery silver. The cake is actually a sticker that comes with bling. The added bling are clear hearts. I made the card with a flap and punched the edge, then I added a silver strip underneath, also punched. I made the envelope with my Enveloper, which has the little designs to emboss on the envelopes. 

oh,'s the inside:

That's all for today! Stay out of the heat!


  1. You are so creative, and your wedding card is gorgeous!

    Thank you for visiting my blog....glad you are enjoying the freebies!

  2. Karla your wedding card is beautiful! I wanted to stop by and thank you for your kind words about the loss of my Mother. It meant a lot to me to hear from you and your sentiment about not taking your ability to craft for granted... I too have lost my mojo but after seeing what Mom went through I will try not to ever let that go to far from me again. Thanks again, you are ever so sweet!

  3. Fun post! Thanks for your sweet comment on Moxie Fab World's post about me!! I also love the wedding card!


I'd love to hear from you!
