Lily's Birthday

I have to apoligize for being MIA these past 2 weeks but I was busy creating items for my daughter's 5th birthday this past weekend. I would like to share a picture of the cake that I made for her:

I was very pleased with how it turned out, and Lily LOVED it of course. I had many positive reactions to the cake.

I also attempted to make my first banner. I am happy with how it turned out, even though I forgot to put the flowers on that I made for it.

For the base I used Elegant Eggplant cardstock and embossed the Swirl Stamp ( from Creative Elements Stamp Set #122645 W / #122647 C ) with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder (#101930).
I also used the Perfect Pennants Die (#123126) and cut Doilys from Daffodil Delight cardstock for under the Letters.

Watch for more updates tomorrow, thanks for visiting.

Happy Crafting,

Card Swap

Happy Monday for those of us with school children, just kidding. I recently joined a Stampin Up Card Swap on Facebook. Here is my card for April that I sent to my partner.

I just LOVE how Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant look together and butterflies are my ABSOLUTE favorite. The stamp set I used was Creative Elements. Be sure to checkout my website for my upcoming classes

Happy Crafting!

Party This Way

Here are a couple cute cards that I recently did. This first one was for my Niece's 1st Birthday

I used Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo.  I just LOVE how those 2 colours look together, perfect for a little girl.

The second card is for a friend of my 5 yr old daughter's. I used Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight. The pattern paper was a scrap of retired paper that I happened to have, Walk in the Garden.

These cards were CASEd from Splitcoast with a few changes.  Thanks for looking and Happy Crafting.

Treat Wrappers

Here are some more quick & easy treat holders that I made for Easter.

I used the Top Note Die and cut out in Very Vanilla. Punched some eggs with the small oval and some flowers with Itty Bitty Shapes Punch pack. Added some bling with a jewel. TA DA!! Could easily change for any holiday or special occasion.

Easter Lollipop Holders

I made these darling little treats for the children at our Easter Dinner.

I used a piece of Very Vanilla 6 1/2 inches by 2 1/4 inches. I scored at 2 1/2 and 4 inches. Cute some eggs out of Designer Series Paper with the small oval punch. I cut a small banner out of Very Vanilla, sponged the edges with Wisteria Wonder and used Teeny Tiny Wishes for the sentiment. All of these supplies can be purchased from my store.
