hannah’s flowers: crystals, polka dots, and a color explosion!

This is a bouquet I made for Hannah and Joel’s wedding this August in Ballymena, Ireland. We’ve communicated over nearly a year sharing Pinterest boards, fabric swatches, and lots of ideas, and I’ve got to say hers is one of the more embellished and colorful bouquets I’ve done. It’s like an explosion of candy buttons and happy energy for their casual handmade Irish wedding!

See more photos from Hannah and Joel’s flowers here in their Flickr set!

*note: I edited these photos with Flickr’s new in-app editor, Aviary, after the closure of Picnik (boo!). Still trying to figure out what new program I want to use…what do you like?

    Your bouquets are so fun and this one is simply stunning!!! I use, and love, pixlr.com. There is a full version, as well as, an express version. I promise it would take you 3 minutes to figure out how to rock all the features. Give it the time! :)

    I love all of the embellishments. There’s so much to see, like taking in all of the little detais and nuances of a painting. This is not my palette, but I would sure love to see other Lasertron bouquets tricked-out like this one. Absolutely stunning.

  • Zoe

    the colour…. KAPOW!!! :D Congrats to Hannah and to the wonderful Pricess Lasertron team for making these! :)

  • Tina

    LOVE LOVE!

    try picMonkey :) it’s pretty similar to picnik and has cool edits and such. i think it’s pretty sweet!

      my mom is really liking picmonkey–I gotta see if I can import stuff from flickr into it.

    That bouquet is the perfect shot of cheerfulness! The world needs more vibrant candy-coloured bits of beauty in it. I think this is one of your best.

      thanks mary–I’m glad to add a little more color to the world. :)

  • Megan Hebel

    This has to be one of my FAVORITE bouquets you’ve ever done! <3

      thanks so much megan!

  • Renee

    Stunning as always. I’m finding that using the google+ photo (which is where picnik went) is still fulfilling all my photo needs :) I don’t think it has ALL the same stuff, but it’s better than nothing at all!

    • http://princesslasertron.com Princess Lasertron

      I know, I’ve gotta try that out! I just hate that I can’t import from flickr.

    Picmonkey is as easy to use as Picnik was, but with a lot more cool features available for free. Aviary is a lot more advanced, but a bit difficult to learn, especially if you’re used to the way other photo editors word/organize things

Hello Fearless: My friend Sara’s new company for female entrepreneurs, and an interview with me!

Several years ago (probably around the time of the first Big Omaha conference) I met Sara Davidson through the Silicon Prairie startup community, and as two creative (and outspoken) women in the community we became fast friends. I remember one time in particular when I was going through my divorce, I was at a party…

The Sewists: A beautiful new craft & design book by Josephine Perry

After over two years in the making, crafter/artist/author Joesphine Perry's beautiful new book The Sewists: DIY Projects from 20 Top Designer-Makers is available for pre-order! I'm incredibly excited and honored to be one of the featured designers, along with several of my crafty design idols including Julie Jackson of Subversive Cross Stitch and Jaime Jennings and Amber Corcoran, the girls from Fancy Tiger. When I received the book in the mail today I was first struck by the beauty of the cover and elegant simplicity of the project layouts. It even comes with a CD with all the templates.

Things I’ve Learned Trying to Break Into Plus-Sized Retail

I used to think that retailers that didn't carry plus sizes were deliberately excluding a huge segment of the market, but as a small retailer that is trying hard to offer those sizes to our customers, we've learned so much about the extended sizing landscape in ready-to-wear fashion.

Barcamp 2014 Tickets now on Sale!

Opening party Sept 5, the big show September 6th. It’s chaos, humor, lots of learning plus a few special guest stars. And for once I don’t mean myself. If you’ve ever wanted to plan a trip to Omaha, this is an opportunity you should take.

DIY: A Fabric Flower Crown from my book, Fabric Blooms!

Crowning Glory Rose Bouquet Headband

One of my favorite trends right now are flower headbands. They're whimsical in a tall, teased-up hairdo, and they can be sweet and demure on a favorite little girl in your life. I made this headband in shades of yellow and pink roses, but once you get the hang of this technique you can re-create it with other flower types, different colors, and other fabrics for a completely different look that's personal to you. Each step is included in the photo below, so you can sort of see how the process looks as you create the headband. These instructional photos are one of my favorite things about Fabric Blooms--they're beautiful, easy to follow, and they were a lot of fun to style with photographer Justin Limoges! Thanks too to my model, Sarah Lorsung Tvrdik aka Fash Flood aka my business partner!
