Burlap and Blooms Simply Created Wreath Kit by Stampin' Up!

Happy Monday!

Today isn't my "usual" Monday… but it still needs to be uber productive!  This is the day I REALLY need to nail down my projects for my weekend classes … but it's also the day Craig is home (he couldn't take his usual Friday off so he took today instead) … and Alicia's bed is being delivered "some time" today.  My workout, dog walking and showering will take me at least until 10:30 so I better crack on!

Today's video hi-lights the Burlap and Blooms Wreath Kit.  It took me a while to buy this kit … Craig and I don't have the "country" decor going on and I really didn't know what to do with it … but, in true Tamara form, I bought it anyway "lol".  I DO have a plan.  The plan is to put it together using velcro rather than glue dots to attach the flowers … then each season I can switch the pieces out accordingly … leaves in the fall, snowflakes in the winter, hearts in February, Shamrocks in March, Eggs at Easter. I'm not convinced I like the flat wreath form … so my plan for that is to either buy one from "that store" or get a pool noodle from the dollar store, make it into a circle and use THAT for the form (I always have the best plans, don't I?  We'll see if it ever actually happens!)

I have heard from a few people that the printed instructions for assembling the large flowers in this kit are brutal and make no sense at all … yay for videos!  The video above shows you how to make the flowers, so pay attention!  I know I'll be watching this again before I assemble mine!

Right - I'm off to get this day started.  Pop back soon!  Until then - have a stampy day!
