Mother's Day Ideas that Warm the Heart


Welcome to the blog this Tuesday! We are going to get you ready for Mother's Day with two breathtaking projects and tutorials. Olga Struk shows us incredible techniques with our G45 Staples and Botanical Tea. Miranda Edney shows a glorious way to use corresponding colors from different collections to make an awe-inspiring set of gifts!

Before we share the Mother's Day fun, we wanted to give a spotlight to our Facebook page! We are loving the projects you're sharing, and wanted to share one that is truly amazing! Lyndsey Jamieson made this great Botanical Tea paper cake with a mini inside. Love this!

Olga is such an amazing designer and this hanging set of hooked tags can be used for a variety of things - keys, jewelry, and more! Follow her step-by-step photos below. All the materials are in the photos and will guide you along!



We love how Olga bends the keys to make these hooks. She said she just used pliers and bent them slowly so they didn't break. A fantastic new idea for our Ornate Key Staples!

I’m going to set out all my little part decorations around and take lots of photos! For my party decor i used a few diff collections. I love that you can mix and match them all so easily! I have a few tuts for you to try out if you are interested :) The party hat, the balloon props, and the sweet little cameos. Hope you like them! Happy Mothers Day to all the beautiful ladies out there! xo" -Miranda
