Succulent Love...

Who loves succulents?!  I know I do!!!!  Seriously love them!  And using the "Oh So Succulent" bundle makes making paper succulents a breeze!  Best part--they never die!  (I don't have a green thumb at all...more like a brown thumb cause that is what color plants turn under my care, sadly.)

I want to share a couple ways to incorporate succulents into your home decor.  We made this at the last Suite Stampin' Success Meeting I posted about HERE.  These were part of our make and takes...



SO fun, right?!  First up...here is a love frame...

Shimmery gold letters, fun Old Olive succulent...just so much to "love" about this!  :-)  This was a quick project to make also, and you could totally make other words.  Just frame some "Succulent Garden" designer paper and then add the letters and flower to the glass of the frame.  And voila!  A fun piece of home decor!  (P.S....the Large Letter Framelits are a bit pricy...I know.  However...I use them ALL the time and really are so worth it! They are a great item to grab during Sale-A-Bration because just buying them would almost earn you 2 FREE Sale-A-Bration items!)

Now let's talk about the succulent planter.   Have to admit...LOVE this planter.  The box it sits in, the fun succulents on top...I just love it!  What do you think?!





 So much fun!  The planter is actually the Popcorn Box Thinlit, and just did a little alteration to make it perfect for the succulents.  I'm thinking about teaching a class on making this...what do you think?!
