The displays at the Stampin' Up convention were amazing! There were lots of beautiful flower arrangements made out of paper. Some people can do wonderful things with paper! Here are a few arrangements that I really liked.
With 3 vases, a picket fence and a butterfly, this pastel arrangement screams Spring, doesn't it? I love her attention to detail and the embossing on the pots too.
This little patriotic bouquet is just adorable. The white embossed doilies on the box really caught my attention. I wish they had photographed better.
I love these stacked boxes that are reminiscent of a wedding cake. The color scheme is a great one too. Wouldn't it be fun to put different presents in each of the boxes!
This beautiful wreath had hundreds, possibly thousands of tiny punched flowers. The creator did a great job of putting them together in this unusual wreath. I wonder how her carpal tunnel is doing . . .
No, these picture weren't taken in 2003. My camera was acting up and kept changing the date. I wonder if I will ever get around to making a similar flower arrangement. I would love to but I've been so busy lately I don't reckon it will happen soon. I'm leaving Monday to go to GA for my grandson's birthday. He is going to be turning 7 and has the cutest freckles ever! He wants to have a campout on the trampoline for his party. I reserve the right to go inside in the middle of the night if necessary to sleep in a bed.
Don't forget if you live in TN that next weekend (Aug 5-7) is the tax free weekend. You can get all of Stampin' Up's adhesives and 3 different pairs of scissors tax free that weekend. The markers and watercolor pencils and crayons are included. It is a great time to stock up on White Signo pens and blender pens. Since our tax rate is nearly 10% it is like getting a 10% discount on your order of necessities! I'll post again before the weekend with a complete list of the tax-free items.
