A Work In Progress

Hey everyone!! I wanted to share a project that is going to be an on going work for my CMC Copic Challenge Group.  I have had this 7 Gypsies photo tray since this past summer just waiting to be inspired to use it.  Well, inspiration hit me with Tiddly Inks new stamps from the Wryn and Friends collection.  This little girl totally reminds me of my crafting buddy Riley.  I have also wanted a way to keep some of my work for myself and I think this is perfect way to do that.
  For my tray I am going to continue to use all Wren Images and my absolute favorite paper by Prima Madeline.  This image is called New Nest.  The die is from C.C. Designs Cutter Leafy Branch the flower punch is from Martha Stewart but I don't know the name. I used CTMH Twilight ink for the sky along with my hand cut cloud die.

The Sweet Stop Sketch 143

Hi everyone!! Looks like we made it through another week.  I was hoping for a relaxing crafty one but after the 2 weeks of party planning but it wasn't meant to be...that not so fun thing called "work" got in the way:)  I did manage to get my project done for The Sweet Stop SSS143.  I found this clip board in the dollar section at Target and it just spoke to me and I wasn't in the mood to make a card so I used the sketch to create this.
The patterns were so bold and fun that I had to find a sassy stamp to go with them and in my stash I had this cute Greeting Farm stamp called Cheeky Chat and it just seemed perfect.  The sentiment is from C.C. Designs Summer Sentiments.  Look at me coloring another blonde, unusual for me on girls since I tend to go with my daughters brunette hair colors. I have been having fun experimenting with the different colors though.

Riley's Tangled Party

As promised here are all of the details for Riley's 6th birthday.  For those of you who haven't seen Disney's movie Tangled it is a great movie for young and old.  I found so many great ideas on Pintrest for this party and then I added a few ideas of my own.
So here we go starting with the front yard leading in the front door. The hair is made out of a roll of plastic table cloth with purple ribbons and I got the idea HERE, it looked great from from the street.  My husband and brother get to take all the credit for this one. Inside I used yarn and strung it back and forth tied it off and loosely draped it over the doors and staircase.  The wanted posters were all over the house.
My mom was a huge help with the decorations and cake.  I wanted to make the flags look like the scene from the movie at the festival for the lost princess, mission accomplished I do believe.  I knew cutting the suns out would be way too much work so I Googled and found THIS link to a free SVG file so my Cricut finally got used:) I punched 1 1/2" circles in a different color to give them some dimension.  About 75-80 flags later along with some floating lanterns I got at Hobby Lobby this is what it looks like.
I found these cute little lanterns at the Dollar Spot at Michaels and added LED tea-lights to shelves and the craft tables .  There are tons of pictures from the movie so my husband was able to print them in all sizes and I placed them on doors and over pictures for a little extra touch.  He printed THIS picture of the floating lights and I tried to make it resemble Rapunzel's Fireplace using plastic table cloths.
The cake was a variation of Disney's Tower Cake but instead of styro foam we actually made a cake.  I used the Cricut again to make paper flowers for the cupcakes. The Jello boat idea was from a  fabulous blog called Super Mom Moments and the Rice Crispy Paint brushes can be found HERE.

 If you have seen the movie you know I had to use frying pans and the magic flower in the decor.
 And finally crafts and goody bags.  I made "dream journals" with Tangled activity pages for the girls to work on along with decorating wands that I found at The Dollar Tree.  The Pascal blowers and activity pages for the journal are Here.
Sawyer my wonderful son was the perfect party assistant and helped watch the girls and organized games and activities.

 I was so excited when I came up with an idea to make a hair clip to attach to the goody bags.  I took apart the purple flowers glued them back together and braided yarn 3 sections of  four 20" long pieces tied the end with a purple ribbon and glued them to the back of the flower and then on to a hair clip.  I think I will add more details and pictures in the Tutorial section in a few days. 

It was a great party and the kids absolutely loved it and can you tell I had a blast making it happen.

The Sweet Stop Sketch 141

Another week has come and gone and that means it is time for my regular Saturday The Sweet Stop Sketch. It was a busy one for me working on decorations for my Riley's upcoming 6th birthday party.  If you follow me on Pinterest you might have noticed a theme of Rapunzel.  By the way have you tried Pinterest? I love it and boy is it ever addicting.  I will share some pictures when everything comes together.
Today I have a card that made for my sweet friend Shanyn's birthday whose favorite color happens to be green.  I picked this Saturated Canary stamp called Whispy Fairy because it reminded me of her daughter.  I have so much fun coloring Krista's images, I especially enjoyed doing the pleats on her skirt this time.

Happy Birthday Matey

I just wanted to share a birthday card I made for my son. This year was all about pirates and Jack Sparrow so I found this great Treasure Map digi from Make It Crafty and paired it with this cute Pirate Cooper from Paper Pretties.  I was so excited I got a Spellbinders Grand Calibur for Christmas and it gave me a chance to use the Grand Dies Label 1.  I doodled the X around the bottom  and colored everything with Copics but unfortunately I can't seem to find the list of colors. Coloring the map took quite a bit of time but it made me so happy that he loved the card so much he actually sat and looked at all the details before tearing open the presents.

Back with The Sweet Stop Sketch SSS140

I hope Santa was good to everyone.  It was nice having a little break from the everyday routines and taking a little break from crafting to get some mojo back.  I enjoyed having the kids home and seeing all of the excitement and craziness.
Well after a short break at The Sweet Stop (thanks Korin!!) we are back with a super fun sketch and I must say Korin did a wonderful job on this one.
I am so excited Tiddly Inks has these brand new super cute digis called Wryn and Friends and I couldn't wait to color one up.  Wryn reminds me of my Riley so you will be seeing more of them from me:)
 For my card I started with this weeks The Sweet Stop Sketch SSS140.  The paper is from Bo Bunny Crush Collection, great Valentine's papers.  I made the little garland from Maraschino Bakers twine by The Twinery.  The image is Tiddly Inks Grow a Little Love and the sentiment is from C.C. Designs Valentine's Critters but I couldn't find a link. The heart punch is Recollections and the tab is Die-namics Mini Tab Quartet.
