Chalkboard Heart Picks ~ Clearly Besotted Sneak Peek!

heartpicksmaureenplut

Good morning!  Well, we survived the Rehearsal Dinner and everyone had a fantastic time.  I want to share some of the fun details I made for the party.  First up are the heart picks I used for the dining room table floral arrangement.  I made 2 pink scalloped hearts and 2 shimmer white scalloped hearts then sandwiched the wooden skewers in between so  no matter which side you look at, you’ll see these lovely chalkboards.

I just love the chalkboard look and had a blast creating these little ones.  The soon to be released Clearly Besotted Basic Alphabet set was perfect to add Brian and Ashlee’s names.  I also used some images from Framed Sentiments and Basic Banners to help complete the look.  Here’s what my work space looked like…

banners

I stamped the banner on my scratch paper so I could stamp the name down to make sure it fit properly.  You can see the letters lined up on my acrylic block.

I also made a chalkboard style sign to greet our guests…

And here’s how this all began as I woke up one morning last week with some ideas…I quickly sketched them out so I wouldn’t forget…

Everything is so wonderful! Looks like we both have loved ones getting married, my daughter is tying the knot Sept 21. I've done a few crafty things for the reception, but nothing as special as yours! Best wishes to them and you! No crying, right? ;)
