I was in a Tim Holtz class yesterday at the Crafty Scrapper and made this project.  It was a great organized class and I learned lots of new techniques.  I can't wait to play with all my distress stuff this weekend.  Thanks for stopping by!

Gender Reveal Party Invitations

I'm throwing a gender reveal party for my friend Marie at the end of the month.  She sent me a picture of printable invitations available on Etsy and I used the theme to create my own version.

I used my Cricut to cut images using sweet treats cartridge.
I printed the "What's in the Oven?" onto yellow card stock. 

I printed the inside details using Microsoft Word.  I stamped some yellow using Stampin UP Swirly Bird stamp set for additional color. 

They stand up easily.  

I used circles embossing folder to give extra dimension to the cup cake wrapper. 

I hope she enjoys the party.  Boy or Girl what will it be…  you'll have to check back later to see!

Thanks for stopping by!

Swap Your Heart Out: Bag Card Swap Photos

I am in the best crafting swap club ever called Swap Your Heart Out.  We meet every 6 weeks and make projects based on a predetermined theme.  Sometimes it is a one on one swap, meaning you only make one project to trade.  Sometimes it is a group swap, meaning you make one item for each member in the swap.  Here are some pictures from our last swap.  I hope i did not miss any projects.  Our group is full but I thought I could share photos for you to get inspiration.  Happy Crafting!

Thanks for stopping By!

Baby Shower Banner

My Co-worker was having a baby shower for her daughter.  I made a simple banner to match the colors of the shower.

I used chip board for the base and multiple layers of paper with pop up dots to give it  more dimension.  I used my Cricut (Schoolhouse) to cut the letters.
