Birthday Girl!

Good Morning all!

Just skipping through here real quick. Jory is in his Senior year, but is also taking college classes and some more of those start today! :0 So I am on the run.

I am going to show you the birthday goodies I created for my niece who just turned 11 last week.

First off, you should know she had a skating birthday party!!! Not that you could not have guessed that after you see everything...tehe!

First I created her invites using the FREE template from Lauren Meader (its located over on the Papertrey site HERE)  Its supposed to be a stocking, but hey....its a skate this time:-)

I used my cricut and the storybook cart to created "LETS ROLL".

The banners for her "BIRTHDAY GIRL" and "GRACEN" I also used my cricut...these where super fun, and also way EASY with my cricut! :-) My sister used te "Gracen" banner behind the candy table on the mirror, and "Birthday Girl" on the front of the candy table. Is that table not ADORABLE?

Lastly I made her a set of 20 monogrammed cards  for thank yous and other notes (she writes her big brother now, he left for college this sweet!)

Hope you enjoyed this quick preview of her fun stuff....and have  super blessed week!

Wedding cupcakes!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Today is a quickie post, off and running!

Here is the cupcake wedding cakes my sister-in-law and I made. :-)

Believe it or not the cupcake stand was made on the cheap! :-) We picked up the large glass mirror on the bottom at Ikea for $15, the clear glass and smaller mirrors are from Hobby Lobby at $3 each after sale prices, the centers are the glass candle holders from the Dollar tree for a $1 each:-)

We glued it all together and it really turned out beautiful! We will forsure be using it at my daughters wedding next July for the candy table! :-)

Enjoy....and have a super day!

Wedding...this way

Well HELLO out there!

I feel like I have not been here is forEVER! goodness! Things have been busy busy for us I am going to show you a few things I came up with for a friend of our wedding.

They needed signs to point folks to there grand event, so first of you see my MOCK up poster. (I forgot to take pictures of the finished product! UGH) But you get the idea, and of course the lines where not on the final pieces.

I picked up poster board from the dollar tree for 2 for $1, heavy foam board for a $1 piece. I created all of the letters and the arrow with my Cricut Expression (I so LOVE my machine!) I did the signs on the poster board, then backed them with the foam board to make them sturdy. I purchased a contractors packet of stacks and that is how we placed them along the route. I made five and they really helped people out, since the wedding was a ways out in the country.

I will be back tomorrow to show you what else we did for this wedding, stay tuned, you wont want to miss the cool trick we used for the cupcakes!

tata till then! :-)
