Pear Hot Pads

I have had this set to make placemats but I was uninspired by that so I decided instead to make a set of cute pear shaped hot pads.

Some Modern Whimsy

I love the challenges going n over at the Technique Twist  as well as Unscripted Sketches so I used both ideas of the Modern Whimsy with the sketch here:

So combining the two and using some the new SU Sweetie Pie Set (which I LOVE) I created a card using the basic ideas of both concepts. 

Thanks for stopping by!

April Pinterest Party Projects

There is a group of eight of us including myself that do a bimonthly Pinterest Party where half the group brings a project to share for us (we swap out). This month we had some great projects and one project that we loved the concept of but in practice didn't work.

Here are some photos of our projects:

Decorated Mason Jar Cup from Lisa L. 

Lisa found these awesome mason jars from Target in both clear and blue. We added washi tape around the rim of the cap and of course the fun chalk board accent to write a message or a name. 

Lavender Sugar Scrub  by Karen

I LOVE this one so much and it was so was to make. We used two cups of sugar, 1/4 cup of lavender baby wash and 1/4 cup of baby oil. Just mix it up. to add the purple color, I did two drops of blue and two drops of red and mixed till the perfect purple came out. 

I washed my hands after I finished it and they were so smooth after using the scrub. I plan on using these for Xmas presents. 

Cupacake Holder by Jessica

This was so much fun and Jessica did lots of prep for us by pre painting the terra cotta pot and saucer. We glued the saucer to the pot and than mod podged the paper on to the inside of the saucer. I love the print fun summer color and can see so many uses for it other than cupcakes. Won't this be a fun gift to give with a plate of cupcakes!!!

Our fail pinterest was using wax paper to transfer a design to a candle using sharpies and a heat gun. The pictures on the inspiration project were awesome and we all even played with it for a bit. We all thought what great applications it would be for gifts. I am still working on trying to figure it out so we can try it again. I have to say this was our first project to not come out like Pinterest (we have had tons of food ones). 

I wish I would have taken pics of our food as well because everything we had was wonderful. I will be making mine for sure again as well as Cindy's pull apart pizza bread (or as we duped it pizza monkey bread). 



Hoppy Easter

I love me some banners and created this one using chalkboard paper, my cricut and some SU sizzlits. 

I also created a fun printable using MDS as well as that cute punch art bunny. Also I made some fun pinwheels in pastel colors using SU DSP. 

Hoppy Easter!

Frozen Birthday Party

My non girly girl decided on a Frozen theme for her birthday party this year and well I have to say I loved pulling it together and it was super easy and actually inexpensive. 

I used Pinterest and picked a teal color scheme to reflect ice. 

The first craft/project I had for the kids were to decorate a goodie bag like Olaf and than to build a snowman using some fun food items. This was such a big hit. 

I also used blue with the food. I made a punch using some Hawaiian punch and lemon lime soda. I found Blue Velvet cake mix to make cupcakes (there wasn't one left of the two dozen I made). 

I loved the "Melted Snowman" which a bunch just took home for later. I also did a summer craft because Olaf loves summer time. 

Here is my little girl and me in our Frozen mash up shirts we got from Teefury. Miss O's was called Frozen in Time which was had Elsa freezing the TARDIS from Doctor Who. She just loved that shirt. 
Mine was Game of Thrones which no kids got but every parent sure laughed at it. 

Overall we had a great party and the kids had a blast. Miss O got some nice presents which included a lot of Legos which is her most favorite toy currently. Her one friend got her a Captain America set which was instantly put together. 

Thanks for stopping by!
