Guest Blogger: Laura Bray




Hi! I'm Laura Bray, also known as katydiddys.

When Elena asked me to be a Scrapbook Royalty guest a blogger, I was so honored!

Since it's summer party time, I thought I would share a tutorial for creating custom party table setting using your scrapbook supplies.

I don't know about you, but I often buy paper and embellishments and then don't want to use them because they are too pretty.

I've found that using the supplies to set a party table really help me overcome my reluctance to use my treasure supplies.

So here's a video on just how to create a table setting. (P.S. I filmed the video this Spring for the PBS show Creative Living with Sheryl Borden. The episode will air sometime in 2011.)



To celebrate my guest spot on the Scrapbook Royalty blog today, I'm hosting a giveaway!


Felt Bakery Coasters

Simply leave a comment on this blog post and we'll draw a name at the end of week to win a set of my Felt Bakery Coasters!

I'm also donating 10% of my Etsy Shop sales made this week to Scrapbook Royalty!

Pop over to my shop and see what I have to offer!

I wish there were more hours in the day so i could create beautiful things like this! I have 2 little boys 3yo and 5mo who are a handful while their daddy is deployed! Maybe by the time he gets back i can put something like this together for a great dinner/date night in for us! Maybe we will be lucky enough to have a girl in the future so i can really enough all the scraping world has to offer!

Love your table settings Laura! And the felt coasters are so clever... and those are about as close as I'll get to a real cupcake for the next couple of months as I'm (finally) staying on track with eating healthy and losing some weight. Yeah! More time for crafting, less time spent eating!
