I love the Inspiration hops - and this month we are welcoming a whole lot of new Verve Divas for their first Inspiration Hop!!! Woohooo! Welcome Ladies! For my project today, I made some table centerpieces for my friends 50th birthday using the Let It Shine stamp set. We had a long table set up for her 50th birthday and I thought it would make it more special to personalize the table decorations with little candle holders decorated with her favorite colors (green, blue and purple) with a little tag that says: 50, Your Time to Shine!
I found little glass candle holders and combined it with some green burlap, flowers, berries and twine with a hazelnut scented candle inside (Smells SOOO good!). Having a milestone birthday can such an emotional moment - and I love the sentiment "Your Time to Shine" - just puts everything into perspective and inspires me to always enjoy and be grateful for this precious life of ours. Here is another angle of the candle holder - with the candle inside:
Here is a shot of all the candleholders together - I love how it turned out. I stamped the sentiment from the awesome Let It Shine stamp set - check out all the sentiments in this beautiful set! I punched out the sentiments with a circle punch and then matted it onto some green card stock that I cut using the Vintage Oval die. I attached the tag onto the candle holders with some twine and finished it off by adding some glitter to the thickers:
Stamps: Let It Shine stamp set from Verve Stamps
Paper: PTI white cardstock and green cardstock
Inks: Memento Bamboo Leaves
Accessories: Vintage Oval die from Verve stamps, Circle punch, American crafts foam number stickers, flowers/ berries/ burlap from craft store, twine, dimensionals and cropadile and ribbon from stash
I think my most favorite kind of project is one where I can make something special for my friends and family - and making this project was so much fun and so special because it was for someone special! Julee has the most amazing sentiments that always say the most perfect things straight Can't wait to see all the amazing projects that the Divas have created for the hop this morning - please hop over with me and check them out - and don't forget to leave a little love - some lucky commenteer will get some awesome prizes!
