Stamped for the Kitchen

I stamped these a while back and just hadn't posted them. I have been keeping salt, baking powder, baking soda, etc on the top of the stove and thought it looked a little messy. I had the idea to dress up an old baking powder container, instead of throwing it away to put the salt in. When I finished and liked the way it looked, I decorated one for the baking powder as well!

I stamped white paper with two colors blue (one for flowers, a darker for the letters) then attached it. To keep it nice and keep it from falling apart, I covered it with a couple strips of clear packaging tape. That's why it's so shiny!

I like the containers because they have the metal across the top for leveling, which makes it easier for my little girl to help me measure in the kitchen, and I think they're the perfect size. I'll be saving these container every time now and making more!

Another Wedding Invitation

Here is the invitation I quilled for my friend's wedding this past weekend in Quebec. I tried to work in her color for the wedding (and a favorite color of hers and her husbands)- red.

Quilled Owen

Here's the quilled name plaque I made for a new baby in our group of friends. His bedroom is painted in green stripes and has a jungle theme.
