Happy birthday to my minion

My son Blake turns seven this weekend. So today I have been working on his birthday treats for school.  A little bit of background.... The school my boy attend has gone to a healthy snacks only policy for daily snacks and birthday treats.  I have certainly had my challenges with this and trying to find a birthday treat that fit that was a pain in the butt.  So I took my inspiration from his class theme.  MINIONS!

Using my silhouette cameo I created stickers (print and cut ) for the minion eyes, overalls, teeth, and party hats.  I glued on googlie eyes and little puffy balls to finish them off.

Here are my minions helping me assemble the minions

Ian hard a work putting the stickers on the bananas

After finishing the bananas I made a quick birthday button and hat for my birthday boy.

Playing with winter cards

Last night I spent some time playing with holiday card ideas.  Now anyone who knows me knows that I do not actually send out home made holiday cards. I order fancy photo cards and send out pictures of my kids.  As much as I love crafting and creating I'm very self conscious about my art.  I really create thing s just for me.  I have boxes of ready to go cards that I may never use but I love the process :). 

This is such a simple and lovely card.  I used a CTMH stamp set from the current idea book for the image.  I embossed and inked up a mat layer to coordinate with the stamped image.  Matted the stamped layer on silver glitter paper and added a ribbon. So simple yet the finished look is beautiful .

This second card used a similar technique.  I used a CTMH stamp and this time used an embossing ink pad and red embossing powder.  I embossed a mat layer and inked it up to match.  Matted the stamped image on silver glitter card stock and added a ribbon to finish it off

The two cards have joint the others in my stash just waiting for the day the will get used.

Thanks for stopping by. 


Baby shower invites

I have been working on baby shower invites this week.  My brother and his wife are expecting their first baby soon and I'm so excited to help throw them a baby shower next month.  

A big thank you to my friend Kim Phillips who owns little bees graphics. She kindly designed the converse themed invites for me.  I just needed to print mat on black card stock and add some ribbon.  

Thank you
