We are so glad Spring is finally here. We've been looking forward to adding a personal touch to our tea parties, making some colorful DIYs and creating a lot of ocean-inspired decor. Do you know which collection we're using for this season's makes? Sharyn Sowell's trendy and intricate dies from her past collections! Come see how these products can add that sweet touch of Spring in your makes.

One of the best things about throwing a tea party are the delicate, but gorgeous, details. Sharyn Sowell has not disappointed. This beautiful tea party invitation was made using her Rose Lace Gatefold and Rose Border dies. We can't get over how beautiful it turned out!
3. Rose Wine Stem Labels
Add a little chic to your drinks with this lovely Wine Stem Label die. Instead of a sitting card on the table, pop this quick make onto each of your guest's wine glasses for easy labelling. Everyone knows where they're sitting and there's no chance of anyone getting their drinks mixed up. Grab the easy project instructions here.

We know what it's like to run into the "I don't have the perfect napkin ring for this party" problem and we're here to help.

You only need one die and this tutorial to pull it off.

We started off with a seahorse and we're ending with it as well because it is just that versatile. We really can't get enough! How perfect is this shadow box? It makes a great addition to any sea-inspired area in your home. Grab the full how-to here to learn how to make your own.
