Tropical cards

One thing that I love about making cards is that you can add so many different things to embellish them. My son is turning 12 this week. I made him this Survivor card because he loves that show!

I made this card with the Life's A Beach and Aloha Cricut cartridges. I tore, inked and distressed just about everything. I wrapped the torch in jute and added raffia as well.

I am entering my card for the challenge at Fantabulous Cricut.

Here is another birthday card that I wanted to look fun and "summery". Sooo, I added an umbrella meant for a beverage.

Thanks for looking!

Penguin Party

Warning - party post not a very scrappy post.

My daughter is still very much into penguins, for her birthday party all she wanted was a penguin theme! I decided to turn to Pinterest to help me figure this one out. Here are some pictures from her party. I found ALL of these ideas on Pinterest.

I was so happy to make these puffs. I found a Youtube video and was shocked at how easy they are to make. They are such an inexpensive party decor item! I also decorated our mantel with all the penguin stuffies.

I may have found this idea but it was my MIL who made this bean bag toss game.

My daughter loves to eat olives and hard-boiled eggs so I knew I needed to include some "penguins" in the menu.

This was the craft that the guests created. The clear ornaments were purchased at Michaels. We put glitter inside with hairspray and then painted the outside with acrylic paint.

I was so happy when I saw a penguin gift bag creation on Pinterest. I bought the black lunch bags at Michaels. I cut the face from the Create A Critter Cricut cartridge but I had to thin him out a bit with my Gypsy.
I am fairly new to pinning online and am so happy with how easy it was to collect ideas and make an inspiration board.
Have a great day!
