St. Patrick's Day and Spring Wood Blocks

I love decorating for the holidays and my kids especially love the holiday decor around our house. One of my favorite decorating items to have (and to make) are wood blocks. They are fast and easy. They satisfy my need to craft in just under an hour. When I got out my paints and blocks last Saturday, my kids started joking that I need an intervention, because I love these blocks so much.

So many of the Companies have come out with 3x4, 4x4, and 4x6 journaling cards. These cards fit perfectly on varying sizes of wood blocks. (The different sizes of wood blocks, and paint are available at Allscrapbooksteals.com).  I pick out the cut-outs that I want and choose the size of block that fits it.  For these blocks I used the following papers from Doodlebug's Happy Go Lucky (12x12 Leprechaun Polka 4636, and Lucky Clovers 4631), Easter Parade (12x12 Bunny and Friends), and Hello Sunshine (12x12 Springtime Spray 4644).

With these blocks my friend and I decided to do St. Patrick's on one side and then Spring and Easter on the other. This way we only had to do one set of blocks, After St. Patrick's Day is over they can be turned around for Spring. We picked paint that would coordinate with both themed papers. After the papers were glued on, I added some jewels, sprinkles and ribbon. These embellishments really make them come alive. I hope you love them as much as I do. Check out the papers, wood, and paint at Allscrapbooksteals.com today!!! Happy Crafting!!! Jacqueline
St. Patrick's Day with the green, ribbon, jewels, and sprinkles.
turned around they are perfect for spring. (two in one). I used white, apple green, and leaf green to match both papers. 

Jewels add so much and really make it come alive.

I love the enamel sprinkle shapes and glitter circle for the sun and flowers. 

4x4 size is perfect to stack 

The jewels really bring out the colors.

I love how simple and easy these are

The back side of the 4x4 blocks. I used apple green to match the both of the papers.

Valentine Banner can be changed and used through out the year.

We have this simple piece of jute that hangs in our lobby. We change out the banner to reflect the seasons. We can add anything we like to it to show off the upcoming holidays. This Valentines Banner is one of our favorites because it took less than 10 minutes to put together. We used Doodlebug Doilies. There are 75 in a package and they fit perfectly folded over and clipped to the twine. We also took the Doodlebug Lovebugs 12x12 Double-sided Paper All My Hearts 4622. We cut the cards up and clipped them to the banner with Doodlebug bubblegum clothespins.  Then we added our pictures. It turned out adorable. The great thing about this banner is that it can be changed out and used throughout the year for every holiday.  Check it out for yourself today at Allscrapbooksteals.com. Happy Crafting!!!

Happy Valentines Day!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!! In honor of Valentine's Day I want to share with you my story of three Weddings in one night. No, I was not Katherine Heigl in 27 Dresses, but I definitely had two hours to make it to four weddings, but I only made it to three. It was on December 13, 2014 (12-13-14). It was a popular day because the couples wanted this anniversary date. Which is really cool. 

When I attend an event. I always marvel at the tables, the centerpieces, and the decor. I love to see how everything ties together. So I take quite a few pictures. I get a ton of ideas from seeing other people's creativity and I thought I would share with you.

The first wedding I attended was for a friend and had a bit of a Scottish theme to it.  I really like the paper flowers. All the flowers you will see are made of paper. Not just any paper Harry Potter novels. The Bride is a huge fan.


I love how the cakes are on cut tree stumps, with the paper flowers. 


The second wedding that I attended also had amazing decorations and again these decorations were flowers. These flowers were also made out of paper. They look incredible. The Bride's mother spent all last summer making these flowers.  There are some really talented people in this world. (We do have paper at Allscrapbooksteals.com.)

The third and final wedding was for my cousin. My aunt is super talented, very creative, and has an artistic eye that is fantastic. She decorated the room with snowflakes, tea-light candles, and sparkle. It was so beautiful. 
This center piece was so beautiful and smelled amazing. (I wish I had my other camera because the view was incredible, but I don't go anywhere without my phone. 


These snow flakes hanging from the ceiling add such a sparkle. 

What a great idea to light an area. A candle hanging from the ceiling. 


Thanks for letting me share my night of weddings on this romantic day.  I wish you love and happiness on this day. Check out Allscrapbooksteals.com for any occasion that you are planning. Happy Crafting!!! Jacqueline
