Creative Cuts and More Blog Hop!!!!

Do you have any idea how quick, easy and inexpensive it can be to make your own wedding centerpieces? The candle here costs less than .50 cents to make, and the tree came in at around $5. Plus, since I had all my flowers and leaves cut at Creative Cuts and More, it was very quick to put together! I used a combination of velvet paper and Bazzill Bling.

I had this beautiful card cut in Ice Silver, and it is gorgeous! I quickly added pearls with my two way glue pen and a Making Memories rub on. I don't even think this took five minutes! These beautiful little iridescent pearls are also from CC&m!
Aren't these favor boxes the cutest things? These were also uber quick and easy to put together! Wait until you see all the fab looks the other CC&M DT members came up with! These are so versatile!! Here is the tuxedo, and here is the wedding dress!



I hope you are enjoying the CC&M blog hop!! Did you know that I will be giving away blog candy to someone who comments on this post? Did you know that it will involve bling? How could it not??

Also, be on the lookout for a challenge this week on the Diecut Diva blog!!

Now, it's time for you to scurry over to the brilliant Kim's blog to see what she is up to!!

Remember, if you came here first, please go to the Diecut Diva blog so you don't miss any eye candy or blog candy chances!!!

what a wonderful blog and great stuff you make

Boni said...

Carla - I adore the simple elegance of your projects. The fact that you can make everything look coordinated and so sweet. I was afraid of bling for ages because I was certain that my projects would turn out gaudy but oh my look at what you did and it is absolutely gorgeous - the candles are awesome. What a wonderful idea for a bridal shower and take aways. Great job! Thanks.

That's a pretty cool centre piece! I'm in a wedding coming up and I think these are some pretty great designs. Thanks for the chance to win some bling :)

Dawn said...

Carla,
Thanks so much for the inspiration. My daughter is getting married next year and the I think the votives will look great on the tables. I also think the cards may be great as thank you cards for her attendants. I can hardly wait to show her your ideas.

Bling is good! What beautiful things you have created.

Mandiannie said...

Love what you've done with the dress. The embossing looks so elegant and the sparkle that it has makes it so pretty.

i was also looking at some of your other cards, and I was impressed with the easter one. I like the sparkle on it.
Bling is something I just started using recently and I'm already loving it all.
