It's all in the details...

Earlier in the week I shared a few photos from my latest SU get together - my new catalog release party.  I really wanted to share with you some of the simple details that made a huge impact!

Goody Bags:
I bought plain brown gift bags in bulk from JoAnn Fabrics and stamped the fronts of them using Soft Suede ink and the I (Heart) Hearts stamp set.  I used scraps of Pretty in Pink and Whisper White ribbon in various textures and widths around the handle - four pieces on each bag simply tied in knots.  These were quick to make en masse, and you could switch up the colors and stamp sets to custom make gift bags for any occasion!

Water Bottles:  These were so simple to do - but looked so festive!  I purchased mini sized water bottles and removed the labels.  I measured and cut some of our designer series paper in the size of the water bottle labels and attached them using snail adhesive.  So fun!

 Cupcake Picks:  It's not a Joanne party without cupcakes, right?  Heather and I made a batch of vanilla cupcakes with fresh strawberry frosting.  To make the picks, I stamped our new a la carte stamp, Homemade, in Pretty in Pink ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  I cut out the center of the stamp with an XL circle punch, and cut out an XL scallop from Pretty in Pink cardstock.  I adhered the two together and attached to a toothpick.  To finish them off I added a bow of Pretty in Pink ribbon.  Beautiful!

All three of these simple ideas can be custom designed for any event you may be having!  So what are you waiting for?  Throw a party already!  : )
