For those of you that like to DIY a bit whether it's for invitations, menus, cupcake toppers or any fun paper goodies, these fonts will definitely add a fun flair to your printables. Which fonts are your favorites? I also have some cute rubber stamps that I'm sharing with you today. These are perfect for the DIYer. Simply create your design with a fun font, print it out and then finish off the paper good with a hand-stamped image for the perfect handmade touch. Update: this post was shared on Friday, but with the Easter weekend and myself trying to recover from a cold, I wanted to keep this post up for those that may have missed it. See you back here on Wednesday when I'll share with you an exciting feature I'm in.

Step-by-Step Instructions for the Rose Stamped Doily Coaster

These coasters are so fun and easy to make - and can easily be created with any stamps of your choice and even on patterned paper if you choose.

Supplies Needed:
3 1/2" Diameter Paper Doilies
Anna Griffin Floral Clear Stamps
Anna Griffin Ink Pads
Xyron Creative Station with the laminate cartridge

1. Using the Anna Griffin clear rose stamp {the large one}, place it on the ink pad so just the rose gets the color and stamp on the doily centering the overall rose image.
2. Then stamp just the stem and leaves in the green ink pad and then onto the paper - aligning the rose part up so it connects perfectly.
3. Be sure to let it sit for a little while to be sure it's dry.
4. Once dried, run the doilies one at a time through the Xyron Creative Station using the laminate cartridge.
5. Once done you can simply cut around the outer edge of the doily to trim off the excess lamination and both sides of the doily are now sealed to prevent them from getting wet.

Step-by-Step Instructions for the Super Easy Table Number Frame

This table number frame is so easy and so pretty.

Supplies Needed:
Anna Griffin Metallic Paper {or any paper of your choice}
Anna Griffin Dimensional Floral Stickers
Photo Frame of your choice
Paper Trimmer

1. Create a document in your favorite editing program sized fit your frame {mine was 5x7 and from Walmart}
2. Print the table number and trim to size
3. Place into your frame {I left off the glass to avoid reflection and so the paper texture and sparkle could be seen
4. Choose the dimensional floral stickers of your choice and place on your fram - I like odd numbers so I chose 3 stickers

These two new arrivals from The Wedding Outlet are perfect for creating your next DIY wedding project. These Burlap Chic Rubber Stamps can be used to personalize everything from your wedding invitations to your favor bags. It's a great way to incorporate your new initials or couples name at your rustic themed wedding. (Ink pad not included) You can choose between the Burlap Chic Monogram Personalized Rubber Stamp and the Burlap Chic Thank You Personalized Rubber Stamp.
PS: I did a little research and found out that the best way to stamp on burlap is to apply black acrylic paint to the stamp with a foam brush and press it into the burlap. Even easier than using an ink pad. Fabric paint might also work as well.
