PPA4.............













Weddings are wonderful occasions to use Stampin' Up products for anything but a card. That is what the Pals Paper Arts Challenge is looking for today - anything but a card! One day my crafting friend and walking partner, Barb, was wrapping various candy bars in summery designer papers to be used as luncheon favors. When I saw her wrap a Rolo I thought hmmmm - light bulb moment! The result you can see here. I used chocolate chip designer paper and card stock, along with certainly celery and very vanilla and the Rolos became place cards. Not one place card was left behind after the wedding!


These last two pictures show you a work in progress for the late summer garden wedding I mentioned in an earlier post. The wedding program will be printed on fans made from So Saffron card stock. The back was embossed with the Elegant Bouquet folder and pearls were scattered on the flowers. The front of the fan was stamped in So Saffron with the largest design from Wedding Sweet. The actual program will be printed on this side. (I have to feed the card stock through my printer one piece at a time but it works!) Stamping in the same color as the paper provides a subtle background for the text. A satin green bow finishes it off simply and beautifully.

Those are so clever and fun. I bet it was so much fun putting all those together. I love projects like that. I hope you don't mind if we all case that idea. It's just too perfect not to "borrow"....{big grin}
