Sleeping bag invite

What's so special about turning 9? My youngest daughter has been waiting for this particular birthday since she was 5. She's had this party planned right down to the last detail before her 8th birthday was even over. Why? In our family you must be 9 years old to have a sleepover. That's just the rule. So on her 9th birthday, as a rite of passage, Lily will have her first sleepover party. A party like this one deserves a special invite so after playing around with the design studio I came up with this cute sleeping bag invite.

The carts used were George (rectangle - basic card shape), Old West (feed bag for pillow), and Everyday Paperdolls (girl and teddybear). The party info was attached to the inside of the card. I'm sure this idea isn't original, but there was no scraplifting this time. This design was all me! :)

Hey, Howdy, Hey

Another birthday, another invite. This time it was a Toy Story party for my son's 5th birthday. The card base was created with Design Studio - by welding two 5 1/2" frames from the Toy Story cart. Woody was cut at 3 1/2". Matching envelopes were done using Wild Card and Design Studio.

No Sleeping Allowed

What is it with slumber parties? It seems like that's all we do around here! This cute invite used all Stampin' Up papers from the brights collection. The card is just a square cut from George at 6". Everything else comes from the Slumber Party cart. The scalloped border was cut at 6 1/4", pajamas were cut at 2 1/4", and the sentiment was cut at 2 3/4".

Not sure what's up with my camera but the colors in the picture are a bit washed out - the green is more of a lime green while the other colors are actually brighter.

Birthday Invite (an orignal)

This is a rare thing, but this invite is 100% original. Honestly! I used the star card from the Wildcard cart cut @ 5 1/2". The singer came from the Hannah Montana cart (rock star feature) cut @ 5". paper were all Bazzil except for the dress & boots. Those were from a DCWV glitter matstack. The stamp is CTMH.
The hardest part was only writing under the star;-).

Pun Fun Card Set

I've given myself a challenge - to use all my stamps (at least once)! I know y'all will only believe it when you see it so I'll do my best to keep my blog updated as I create. I did manage to mount all the stamp sets that have been sitting on my shelf since we moved into the new house and as soon as I use at least a few of those I can order a few more.

I also found time to do a little crafting. This TSL was inspired by Theresa.

This card set uses Stampin' Up's Pun Fun set. The little cards are 3x3. I cut the square frames with the cricut using George, then embossed with various folders on the cuttlebug. Matching envelopes were cut using the Wildcard cart. The box was made following Theresa's template in the above link. I think it turned out cute, now I just have to decide what to do with it.

Cookie Tower

Thanks to Kasey @ Kasey'sKreations for sharing this great .cut file for a cookie tower. This was a much prettier way to deliver cookies to teachers on the first day of school. Paper used was from DCWV Citrus Stack. Cut file used George & Storybook.

Disney Bookmarks

These cute Disney bookmarks were totally scraplifted from Splitcoaststampers. I made about 45 of these to send to school the last day. They were so cute and simple it made it hard to resist. The scallops and circles were cut using the Mini Monograms cart. After doing so many of these I now understand why wonky scallops are a pain. They were a bit hard to line up with that odd slant some had, but for the most part I think I got it right. The Disney bottle caps are from EK Success. I also used the jumbo paper clips - these things are HUGE about 3 1/2 inches long. I'm not sure how everyone else put theirs together, but I used a hot-glue gun between the front and the black scallop I put on the back. Hopefully getting a bookmark encouraged someone to read over the summer.
