Barnyard Party Invitation | Honey Bee Stamps


Barnyard Party Invitation - Farm Theme Party Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello Friends and Happy Monday!

I am back again with a post for Honey Bee Stamps. In today's blog post I am sharing the cutest ever Barnyard Party Invitation. This card could be used for pretty much any event that has to do with a farm theme, a child's birthday party, or even a wedding. How cute would it be to receive an invitation like this? Everyone definitely will be at your partyπŸ˜‰

CARD DETAILS

To begin, I die cut the barn pieces for the front panel of the card using the new BARN BUILDER DIES. On the red barn layer, I used the WOODGRAIN BACKGROUND stamp to add detail to the wood panels and then drew in the lines using a ruler.

Next, I used the Barn Door frame die to create the barn doors by doing some partial die-cutting. I then just scored the paper to create the hinge for each of the doors. To finish the barn doors I stacked a glued 2 layers of the white wood frames and glued them to each door.

I also die-cut and pieced the little round window for the top of the barn. The lights come from FARMHOUSE ADD-ON that I stamped colored and fussy cut, simply because I didn't want a white border but you could use the coordinating FARMHOUSE ADD-ON DIES.

To let the recipient know this card has a little surprise I stamped out the look inside from the ONE-OF-A-KIND set.

On another piece of paper, I stamped out the little chicks and the pig from the WAY TO GOAT set by doing some masking. I then colored these cuties in and the background using Copic markers and glued the panel in the opening of the barn doors.

The You're Invited stamped in white comes from the PARTY Stamp Set. Below is a closer look at these cuties inside the barn.

To finish the front panel and the inside of the card I die cut two more Barn house panels (one to cover the colored panel and another to make the back piece of the card). To the back panel, I stamped out Let's Party from using the PARTY stamp set, you could also add all the details of the party →the who, what, where, when, and rsvp details here. I then created a score on the left of the barn panel to make the hinge for the card and glued it to the front panel.

Minecraft Dynamite - DIY Party Favors


Hey Guys!

Me again!!! Two posts in one day... Man I'm on a roll, lol! And, I still have a few more crafty projects I have yet to share... those will just have to wait for another day!

If you have been following my latest posts, they have had to do with my son's 10th Birthday Parties. Click on the links below for previous Minecraft related posts.

Minecraft "Creeper" Cupcake Cake

Today I am going to share with you how to make your own Minecraft Dynamite Party Favors! Super quick and easy to put together :)

Minecraft Dynamite - DIY Party Favors

The first thing you need to do is find an image that you would like to use. Here is a wallpaper I found to create my labels. You will want to save the image on your computer. The next thing you need to do is open it up and edit it in Picasa (a free photo editing website). Add your text by using the text option. The font I used is called MineCrafter3 (that font will need to be installed on your computer prior to editing the picture). Once you are happy with your image save it!

The next thing you need to do is print the image. Since I wanted to fit a bunch of labels on one sheet prior to printing them, I used Microsoft Word (I'm sure you can use other programs as well!) When in Word, Open up the image you created. Size it as big or as little as you need it. I made mine using 2 columns 5 rows, a total of 10 labels per sheet. These were big enough to wrap around 4 Twizzlers. You are now ready to print, preferably using a colored printer. Cut out your labels.

Now the fun part begins! 
Fill 4 Twizzlers sticks into one of these bags (refer to the above image). Tie the top with the provided twist tie. Another option would be to use some black or white pipe cleaners. Next, wrap the label around the middle of the bag. Secure the ends with glue or tape.

And voila, easy Dynamite Minecraft Party Favors!!! Guaranteed to be a blast at the next Minecraft Party! What kid doesn't love Twizzlers :)

Minecraft "Creeper" Cupcake Cake | DIY Cakes


Hi Everybody!!! 

Sorry I haven't been around much lately! April has been a crazy month for me starting with my son's birthday parties, yes there was more than one! Then there was Easter, and yesterday we celebrated my daughter's First Communion. Needless to say, I will have a lot to share with you all, so stay tuned πŸ˜‰

Today, I want to share with you the Minecraft "Creeper" Cupcake Cake that I made for my son's (friends) birthday party. I had already made him a Minecraft Cake for the party we had for him with just the family. But this cupcake cake was a whole lot easier and quicker to make :)

Here are a few iPhone pics I took of the process and some tips on how to put one of these cakes together!

First, you will need to figure out how you want to layout your cupcakes. Then squeeze them as close as possible together. This will prevent you from wasting a bunch of icing. To secure the cupcakes to the board just add a little frosting to the bottom of the cupcakes. This will ensure they do not slide around while you frost them! Then pipe the buttercream around the perimeter of the cupcakes and fill the spaces in between. Cover the remaining exposed areas of the cupcakes with more icing.

Smooth the top of the cupcakes flat using an icing spatula.

I used black fondant for the face of my creeper. To do that, I just found an image online and printed it out. I then cut out the face and placed the image over the rolled out black fondant. Next, I used a sharp blade to cut out the shapes from the fondant. Place the face of the Creeper centered onto the cake... Now, wasn't that easy?!

"All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go..." | 3D Paper Suitcase Treat Box Silhouette Studio File | Free Download

Every time I pack a suitcase, I think of this song... not that I'm packing, well not yet anyway. We will be leaving soon enough to visit our family in Portugal! So excited can't wait, my son is already there with my In-laws and I miss him terribly, and even though his sister hates to admit it she misses him too!

Ok, ok, now back to the fun stuff!!! My cousin Marisa, asked me if I could make her a suitcase out of paper for her son Marko's 1st Birthday Party. Her theme for his party is travel by plane, train, or car... so a suitcase is what she chose to fill as a goody bag/treat for every child! That meant I would have to make 15 of them! Wow, anything for you Marisa, good thing I love soooo much!!!

It probably would have been a lot easier if I had bought a suitcase file, but if know me I always like to do things the hard way! I made this file with the Silhouette Designer Studio Edition Software. I'm so used to using SCAL, so this was a bit more challenging for me... but I think it turned out pretty well!

 Cute right?!

The suitcases measure
4.5x3x1.5 inches. Big enough to hold some treats for the kiddos! Or as you can see here big enough for Barbie's clothes, lol!










Hope she likes them! I love how they turned out! Too bad I'm sure they won't last more than a few minutes in kiddy hands... :(

So I'll finish with the end of the song, cause it still continues to play in my head! Bah!!!, don't you just hate when you can't rid of a song in your head, lol!

 "And I'm leaving on a jet plane,
I don't know when I'll be back again,
Oh, babe, I hate to go!"
