Bee's Knee's

Oh I love this card.   I think it turned out really nice.   I cut the bee from Everyday Pop Up Cards at 4" and used Stickles to do the stripes.   The paper is from Authentique 'Blissful' collection.   The ribbon is from Webster's Pages and the corner punch was Fiskars.   The frame is from American Crafts 'man of the house' collection.

Chevron kind of Birthday

This chevron birthday card was made using some negatives from the Chevron box that I cut from the Boxes cartridge.   I mounted the negative cuts onto this paper from Crate Paper ‘Fourteen’ 6x6 collection.   The sentiment is from Stampendous.

Pink Glitter Elephants Baby Shower

 I hosted a baby shower at my house that was a pink glitter elephant and gray and white chevron theme.    We kept the decorations very minimal but made the rosette display that is pictured over my fireplace.  I hand made the rosettes with my score board and then hot glued them all together and arranged them on a large, covered piece of cardboard.   The hanging puffs on each side are tulle.   The banner was made using the Heart2 cartouche from the Lacy Labels cartridge at 4".   I hole punched them and strung them together with gray and white chevron ribbon from Hobby Lobby.
 The table centerpieces were clear glass containers with shelled peanuts inside, wrapped with the same chevron ribbon and topped with pink glitter elephants that I cut in smaller sizes from the blackout of the Elephant on Martha Stewart Birthday Cake Art cartridge.   The cut is two elephants together of the same size so I just snipped them apart and used a tiny hold punch to make an eye. I framed them with the same cartouche that I used on the banner but, different sizes.   I glued them onto wooden skewers and then put the skewers into Queen and Co gray and white chevron straws and hot glued them.
 These taller ones were on each side of the raised hearth.   The toppers on these were too small so I made some paper rosettes for them as well.

 Our favors were mini bottles of Pink Mascato that we got for 4/$5 at our local grocery store.   At $1.25 per bottle, it wasn't bad for a nice favor that we knew would not be a waste of money.  We attached thank you tags with the same design that was from the invitations

 A couple small touches here.   I bought some Nutter Butter cookies and dipped them into melted pink chocolate disks and the cheese tray was slides cheese cut out with a small elephant cookie cutter.

Buggy on Valentine's Day

This little cutie was made using Create a Critter, cut at 4" with the layers.  The wings and heart were cut from a K&Co glittered paper and then I used the dots from the wings and glued them to the top of the antenna's.  I also added some google eyes.
The mat paper is from My Mind's Eye Love Me collection.   The felt rick rack is from the Target dollar bin.   The stamped sentiment from Studio G and the buttons were sewn on using red and white Martha Stewart Baker's Twine.
