Lemon Love

Trending Summer Home Decor & More

My love of lemons has taken over this little work area along with my Rae Dunn collection.  Lemons are kind of a thing right now for summer decor, especially for the farmhouse style, in case you didn’t know!  I have embraced the Rae Dunn trend and I have started making some simple wood signs for the fall and holiday Christmas season to sell in my Mercari shop in the Rae Dunn inspired designs and basic letter font.  I’ll sneak peak those new signs and home decor soon!  Can’t wait to share that with you!

It’s been a while since I posted here as summer has been busy with trips in our new camper, 4th of July celebrations, and the transition from my Mercari shop from summer to fall and halloween.  See below a peak at some of the cute stamps sets coming soon for Halloween!

Tons of cute new stamps and dies coming for all you card makers, stampers, and scrapbookers!  I LOVE sourcing cute clear stamps and offering them at very reasonable prices.

Check out what is popping up new every day in the Mercari shop in cute fall and Halloween stamps and I occasionally organize and clean out my own personal craft stash (which is quite extensive) to offer some great scrapbooking and card making kits and lots, available to see by clicking here to browse >>> MERCARI SHOP <<<

Now for some stunning parties featuring PINWHEELS!

Pinwheels are perfect at any event, celebration or party and these Summer Designs coordinate to any themed birthday or baby shower.

This year I am only offering a limited supply of each set of designs in my shop- HERE

Pinwheels are perfect hanging on the wall behind the party table wall or draped across the front of the party table.

 Pinwheels were cleverly incorporated as favors but still as part of the party table background at this butterflies and pinwheels party.  How fun and easy to create!

Pinwheels are also ideal as table centerpieces – add them to vases or recycled bottles.

Pinwheels are also perfect as wedding decorations- use them as table numbers or signs at a wedding or large event.  Give one to each of your guests at the reception check-in with their table number in the center of each pinwheel and then each guest can take a pinwheel home as a memorable keepsake from your wedding day. 

Pinwheels are so fun on cakes and cupcakes too as toppers!

Cupcakes, polka dots and pinwheels go together perfectly!

Pinwheels and the beach are a great pair too for fun in the sun.

Tons of bright spinning pinwheels in all sizes are available in my shop – PINWHEEL PRETTIES

Giant Paper Flowers Trend For Summer Events

Happy Friday!  The weather is so perfect now for outdoor events and weddings.  It is almost summer and with mother nature in full bloom in gardens everywhere this time of year, I want to revisit the popularity of paper flowers as one of the biggest event and party trends of this year.

Giant paper flowers are popping up at all kinds of celebrations and events and the paper flower backgrounds are so easy to create on your own from my Etsy shop flower kits available – HERE

All my flower kits come entirely cut for you!  No need to buy digital templates, print them, cut templates, trace and then cut your actual flowers and finally assemble them – that is way too many steps!! My kits are already cut for you and come with full visual step-by-step instructions! Super easy!

The ideas are endless for where to add paper flowers as decorations at a celebration. While they are trending at weddings for photo backdrops – they are now popping up at baby showers, birthday parties, fundraising events, bridal showers and even has home decor.

I offer numerous options in my Etsy craft shop for the smaller flowers too, available – HERE

The smaller three dimensional layered and rolled flowers or rolled roses can be added to just about anything.  Top off favor boxes or guest gift boxes with flowers in your event or wedding color scheme.  Create flower garlands and hang them in rows for backdrop streamer or drape them horizontally as bunting across the front of a party table or behind your table.

 

Add some rolled flowers around electric string lights to make a big statement at your next evening or low lighted event.  Lighting is always a great way to create a mood and ambiance at a wedding reception.

I will be adding many more styles of paper flowers, including crepe paper flowers over the next few weeks in the shop for more summer options too.  Be sure to stop by the shop – Ready Set Craft Kits and favorite my shop (click the heart under my shop name) to get new updates in your Etsy feed recommendations!

 

Each of the smaller flower kits also come with visual instructions as well.

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and today I have some stunning gift ideas that you can easily make yourself with paper flowers.  A few weeks ago, I shared some inspiring large scale flower backdrops and if you love these giant paper flowers, you can see that post – HERE

To make smaller paper flowers, you can use paper punches or metal dies to cut them in a cutting machine, such as a Sizzix Big Shot or a Cricut Cuttlebug.

However, if you don’t have a cutting machine and all the metal dies, paper and equipment – you can absolutely short cut some paper flower gifts by visiting my craft shop and order already cut flowers that you can easily assemble and add them to anything.

Stop by my shop for a variety of paper flowers here – READY SET CRAFT KITS

Below are several creative gift ideas you can make with paper flowers for your mother for Mother’s Day.

A beautiful handmade Mother’s Day card with 3-D flowers added on the front.

A paper flower wreath to hang on a door or wall inside the home.

A flower decorated birdhouse.

A flower monogram letter.

Instead of paper flowers, how about paper succulents as a table centerpiece.

A simple flower notebook and pin – perfect for a grocery list pad or a to do list notebook.

Framed wall art featuring handmade paper flowers will make your mother smile every day.

A flower bouquet that will never wilt would be the perfect Mother’s Day gift too!

 I have all the favors you need for Valentine’s Day and to help you with decorating an upcoming party.  Here is a sneak peek of the new Valentine’s Decor I am offering in my shops –

This year I have added more hanging fans and balloons to the shops too!

Everything you need for a stunning Valentine’s Day celebration from bags, tags, hearts, boxes, stickers, cupcake toppers, banners and more!

Pinwheels are also perfect for any celebration.

Now for some easy diy projects that you can make yourself at home.

Heart Kisses – So easy to make with some punched or die cut hearts and glued wood picks to the back.  Easy peasy!

Mini heart Valentine’s cards – I’ll actually have a full detailed tutorial next week on how to make these little cards.  Come back next week for the full project how to!

Hanging heart streamer – so simple to create with strips of cardstock paper glued together, folded at the base and rolled ends (use a pencil to roll and shape these) and then glue your two rolled pieces together to make the heart shape.  You can add your string as you make each heart but I find it easier to just use a threaded embroidery needle to thread all the hearts together after you have made them.

More hanging hearts and even easier to make by punching or cutting 6 hearts, folded in half and glue each half side together- don’t forget to add your looped string in the middle before gluing your last heart together.

Flying high with you. . . Valentine Smartie favors made with lifesavers, stick gum, and Smartie rolls into sweet treat airplanes!  How fun to make with the kids too – some glue and rubber bands are all you need.

Owl Pillow Boxes- so easy to decorate.  You can even recycle and use shaped paper towel rolls for these too.

Give a special gift inside a beautifully decorated box for your Valentine.

A Unicorn Valentine card box would be so fun at a classroom party and will hold all those exchanged Valentine cards.  Just use any box and cover with white wrapping paper or layers of tissue paper and add some eyes, ears and of course a unicorn horn at the top!  Remember to cut a slit or hole at the top for slipping all those cards inside!

Many more ideas for simply ways to incorporate Smarties into your Valentine favors or projects too.  Thanks for stopping by the blog!
