Shimmering Party Mixer

28 Dec

Want to “mix up” a party? Try this fun, creative idea. Have guests choose a party favor that corresponds to their seat assignment. Here is one example, candy canes and snow flakes, created using shimmering, metallic papers.

As guests enter the party room, they choose one from this darling dish.

Thanks to my friends Renee and Denny who modeled their candy canes at the party.

Check out the full how-to over at CutCardStock.com blog and have a Merry Christmas!

Frillions is Back!! Hooray!

17 Jul

Hello Friends of Frillions…

We made our move and have unpacked everything but the Christmas boxes and the memorabilia boxes (which I promise to do over the next year or so…lol).

It’s great to be back, creating again. Just a quick note that I’ve started another blog, “At Home in Palm Beach.” It’s on that other hosting site…just give a click to check it out. Just something a little different from here.

So, to get back into the groove, I chose one of my favorite inspirations site: Card Positioning System (CPS) and sketch #227…check it out:

I went with a stamp I’ve had for a while but hardly ever used. I stamped it in several colors on white paper and then decided which way I wanted to take it. The dark blue ink struck me as the way to go…

Which turned into this:

Just want to keep it short tonight. If you need any supply info, just send me a note and I’ll fill you in on the duds.

It’s great to be back. Cheers, Eli

Thanks Berry Much

5 Apr

I love this little stamp and when I saw the colors from Color Throwdown last week, I knew I would use it with some die cut strawberries. Check out this grouping of colors:

I turned those colors into this card.

Lots of die cuts adorn this card but the fun fringe around the red mat was made by those shredding scissors…how fun is that?

Here’s a little close-up.

As always, thanks for stopping by…have a berry special day. Eli
