Your so Tweet!

Hi Crafters! Well, I am so sorry I have been MIA for a while. I have been so busy at work that I haven't had much time to craft lately! Hopefully that will change soon...but in the meantime, I needed to send my administrator a thank you card for all her hard work over the past few weeks with this is what I came up with.

The cute little bird on the banner is from the cartridge "Birthday Bash" I just snipped off the birthday hat on the bird.

The sentiment is from "My Pink Stamper"'s newest stamp set.

I hope you all are enjoying your Memorial Day weekend! I know I am!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day

Logan's First Birthday party!

Hi my crafting friends! Well, the day is finally here! Today my family is celebrating my youngest grandson's 1st birthday!

A few weeks ago, I posted the birthday party invitations using Elmo's Party cartridge. Today I will post the remaining few items I have for the party.

I decided to make this really cute party banner for the back of his chair. Have you seen these at Michaels? They are just so cute, but I knew I could make one just as cute!

I used the same cut as the birthday invitations, just enlarged the cut to 7 inches. The banner is cut at 7 inches also and is from the Wedding Solutions cartridge. The banner itself is made from an SVG file I purchased.

Now take a look at this cute little birthday hat!

The hat is cut using the Elmo's party cartridge, using fit to page. I decided the hat needed a little spicing I purchased some crate paper and using my MS fringe scissors made the hat bling!

Then I decide the top of the hat needed a little extra I took the remaining fringe and added to the top of the hat.

I am off to the party, I will post pictures of the party mother is making the cake and I'm sure it turned out awesome!

Have a great day!
