Welcome CC&M Blog Hoppers!

Boy it has been a while since I participated in a blog hop, so I was thrilled when Creative Cuts and More asked me to be a part of their Baby & Bridal hop this month. So many fabulous ideas all in one day, plus a chance at a  terrific PRIZE ( A two tiered cake in sooth or textured cardstock) & HELLO a coupon code for 20% everything in the store!! (code is: babybridalhop20 )

  If you happened to stop here first today, please head on over to the
Die Cut Diva blog  so you can start the hop from the beginning! If you are hopping right along and came over from Melisa's gorgeous blog and creations then you are on the right track. 

 I have designed wedding favors using Creative Cuts and More's wonderful dies in the past. I must say that I am partial to their baby collection though. The baby shoes are my absolute favorite die...so far! 

Since I am now in the party business I decided to create some fun decorations and favors with a twin baby shower in mind. The "Sweet Pea" theme works well, because it can be gender neutral, all boy or all girl. 

Creative Cuts and More has a fabulous Penant die for creating fun personalized buntings. 

This is Creative Cuts and More's A2 Gate Fold Cresent card with band, & Baby Shoe

 Here is CC&M's small Take Out box decorated with a mini tissue pom pom

The vellum lamp shade die fits right on top of a wine glass to make a votive lamp. These lamps make a wonderful hostess gift or prize for shower games. 
We recommend using a battery operated votive candle. You can never be too safe.

 Here again is the Vellum Lamp Shade, Baby Shoes & a Oval A2 window frame with an A2 card
Great for making thank you notes. 

I hope you found some inspiration while visiting my blog. Please keep on hopping you are almost finished with only 3 more stops. Next up is Becky's great designs.  Don't forget to leave your comments for a chance at that yummy prize!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Ingredients: The shoes, cards, and bunting came in either White or Apple Crush smooth cardstock. "Sweet Pea" stamp is from unknown. "Thanks So Much" stamp is from SU. Shoes were dry embossed with a Cuddlebug folder.

Duff you have done it again!

Sorry for my lack of posting here...gosh its been a crazy busy week.
So I am going through my emails this morning and come across the Michaels coupon/ad. So I am looking through it and HELLO...Duff Goldman has his own line of cake supplies....I KNOW! Even though I only make cakes or cupcakes (shhh, don't tell Duff) for birthdays, I thought to myself...what could I use on my paper cakes??? Check these wires out...I WANT!!! I have attempted to curl my own wire to use on cakes and obviously since I have no cakes with such wires you can tell how well I succeeded! So once again, Duff has inspired me and I have a bunch of fun and funky Paper Cake ideas floating around in my head!!

Since we are talking about cakes, here is the latest that is leaving today to its new home. Bye bye little Alice and speaking of bye bye...I gotta fly! Thanks for stopping by and reading my blah blah blah!

Busy Busy Me...

When it rains it pours...same thing goes for orders. I am either working on a couple of orders at one time or slammed with 8 orders. Never a happy medium, but I must admit I do love the challenge.
Today I thought I would show you a couple of the projects I am working on. First up is a Lady Bug mini gable box. Second is a Mini Favor Bag...well its technically more like a box only in the shape of a bag. Lots of Summer birthdays and baby showers coming up I guess.
Alrighty, gotta fly...duty calls! Thanks for stopping by.

The Party Is Over....I'm tired!

Saturday was the big day, I had an open house/ ladies night for my friends and family to show off some Party Starters' displays and really to just have some fun! Here is a photo from my "Hazardous Teen Birthday" display, which you can read more about HERE. This display was a hit and everyone was so sweet with all of their comments about it. I can't wait to create more items to go along with this set for Tyler's party, which is in a month.
Sorry this post is short,  I have to run and oh how I wish it was to bed...but duty calls and I have orders to fill. Thanks so much for stopping by.

What I did and what I should have been doing...

Well I did work on some orders yesterday, then I got side tracked.... I can't help it, when an idea pops into my head sometimes I just have to run with it. This is where my mind ran off to....a slimy green toxic sludge shaped invitation.
I posted earlier that my son Tyler wanted to have a toxic waste themed party this year.  I am so excited that I was able to create the shape of the invite in Illustrator, a program that is completely new to me. The size of this invite is  5"x7", so it will fit perfect into an A7 envelope. OH and I did get the 13 year old stamp of approval, so that means these puppies will be going out in the mail in a few weeks! Now to make the rest of the decorations to match!
I am thinking these invites would be great for a "Mad Scientist" themed party as well. Do you think if it was cut out of blue cardstock it would look like water dripping??? What else could this shaped invite work for??? Hmmmm....Chocolate??? I know I know...always with the chocolate. LOL

Thanks for stopping in.

Keep Calm

OK, I will admit it... I am beginning to panic a wee bit. I am hosting a ladies night this weekend and I am NO WHERE NEAR READY!!! I had big plans of getting a whole lotta stuff done this week and of course good ol' Murphy showed up. I got 5 orders today, which all have a rush on them. GO figure! I mean I don't want to complain, because I DO love my work and of course I love all of the orders...its just the timing. Well, I shall carry on and keep my fingers crossed that my bionic powers kick into full gear. Who needs sleep right?! Carry On!

BTW I totally want this poster! There is a space on a wall in my studio just waiting for it.
