Mermaid Themed Party

I have been a busy bee creating this Mermaid themed party. I used Christmas decorations (yes those are Christmas ornaments from Kholes) to hang around. I also used metallic mesh fabrics as well as black mesh bought at my local fabric stores. I decorated the goodie bags with the mermaid from Life is a beach cartridge. I also used the crab from the same cartridge. The invitation (featured as a thumbnail on the video) was also done with the Life is a beach cartridge. I also used the coral from SVGCuts.com (the Wet and Wild collection).

Projects awaiting to be done

In case you are wondering where I have been… well today I am celebrating my birthday! I am thanking God for giving me another year…. and to have the energy for a  brand new craft room! Yeah! my hubby said I could have a brand new craft room for my birthday so I have been working on clearing my entire room (with stuff I have accumulated for the last 12 years in it!). My mom, sister Angie and husband have all been helping for the last two weeks. I should have it ready by next week so I can start posting more projects.

Here are some pictures of the flowers I got from my husband and my parents today.

Thanks for stopping by and I promise I will make a video on the makeover 🙂

Mass Produced Birthday Cards

Here we go with more mass produced cards. This time we are doing birthday cards. Here are the instructions:

 

  1. Cut white card base at 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ (the long way)
  2. Cut the red paper at 4″ x 5″
  3. Cut party hat from Potpourri basket Cricut cartridge at 2.59″ (page 69)

For variations on embossed:

  • run red paper and embossing folder through your machine of choice
  • adhere the embossed paper to the card base

For white stitched non-embossed card:

  • adhere the red paper to the card base
  • use white gel pen to draw stitches.

For the Action Wobble ® make sure you adhere the party hat firmly to the wobble.
