Thinking of You

Today I sat down and just crafted. It has been a long time coming since I have been so busy crafting for the end of the school year, birthday parties, etc.  It was so nice to just be…creative for no one else but me. Unfortunately, I have need for a sympathy card. I wanted to create something elegant and beautiful.  So, take a look:

Happy Crafting Everyone!

Angry Birds Themed Birthday Party

I LOVE doing fun parties for my kiddos, and this year I decided an Angry Birds party would be so much fun. The idea started out with some patterns I saw over at Obsessively Stitching. I made a bunch of stuffed pigs, and several angry birds. I also saved small boxes and cans etc., so that when the day came, the 2-5 year old kids could play life-size ‘Angry Birds’


Next, I made some paper birds using mostly basic cuts from the Art Philosophy cartridge. I used these on the banner.


The finished banner: I downloaded the AB font and printed out all the letters for the banner. I used a circle cutter to cut those, but then cut the other circles with the AP cartridge.


I did the same thing for the treat bag labels.


Next, I made pig cupcake toppers. Again, I used my handy AP cartridge to cut all the shapes. Gluing it all together was the worst, but they turned out SO cute!


Here’s the whole spread!



Happy Crafting Everyone!
