Wonder Woman Birthday

What do you do when your daughter wants a Wonder Woman themed birthday and NO ONE sells Wonder Woman ANYTHING???  Well, you MAKE it of course!! 

If you saw my daughter's Halloween Costume, you'll know she is a big fan of Wonder Woman.  She loves watching the old shows on Sci-Fi Saturday Night.   

Luckily I had these small red paper bags (bought on clearance after Valentines Day who knows when) in my stash along with some leftover white stars from these cards on my desk. After staring at her Wonder Woman shirt for a long time, it hit me - I knew how to make the 'W'.  I die cut the 'W' and then used a retired picture corner punch (cut in half) for the 'wings'.  Voila!  It worked and she was happy!

Now, what do you do when you need a Wonder Woman cake for the birthday party?  MAKE it of course.  Well, not really.  I found this 'super-hero looking' cake at Wal-mart and added a Wonder Woman Little People figurine.  Phew!  Mission Accomplished!
Does that make me Wonder Wo-MOM?   :)

Convention 2014 Swaps

Since I'm playing Convention catch-up, now's a great time to share my Convention swaps.  
I participated in an organized swap and made about 30 cards.  I varied the colors a bit by using my favorites of the new In-Colors.  (Hello Honey is starting to grow on me.  Slowly.)
Below are close-ups of each color. 

Blackberry Bliss

Mossy Meadow
Lost Lagoon

Tangelo Twist

The card below is from the Hip Hip Hooray Card kit which is where I found the inspiration for my swap card.  See how I used a similar layout?

Convention 2014 Gifts

I whipped up these quick Convention gifts for friends using the Tag A Bag Polka Dot Bundle.  Wow!  Was this an easy bundle to use and the gifts came out super cute!  I just stamped the phrase from the Chalk Talk stamp set using the coordinating ink color, punched the image out with an oval punch and adhered a few layers of the tags.  Easy peasy!  I figured out a way to tie the white baker's twine (included in the bundle) so it would stay on the bag and not ruin it when they opened it.  Hint:  it involved punching a hole in the bag...  
I filled the bags with goodies such a Crystal Light packets, gum and of course, chocolate!

Wood Stamp Case Convention Gifts

These little beauties were gifts for my roommates at Convention this year!  Yes, Convention was in July.  Yes, I'm WAY behind!  I know, I know...  :)

 I came across the idea here and modified it by adding sticky notes.  I found these cute little pens on clearance at Staples.  Score!  And you can't forget chocolate - it goes with everything!  

I'll be making more of these soon - I'm participating in a craft fair at my daughter's elementary school on November 15 and I think they'll sell.  What do you think?

I'm back - With a Frankenstein Card and a Halloween Recap

I'm back after a much too long break from blogging.  Between computer problems and life, blogging took a back seat.  However, I've been crafting a ton and have a lot to share.  I'm going to start with these super cute Frankenstein cards I made for Halloween.  I used the Circle Card Thinlits Die from Stampin' Up!

I've seen several versions online and combined them to make mine.  I used the 'BOO' stamp that came in the September Paper Pumpkin and the 'happy halloween' from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  


Here are my kiddos all dressed up and ready to trick-or-treat.  Aren't they adorable?   
Here's what they wore last year for Halloween.  

And below is an overview of some of the things that were made for my daughter's 3rd grade class party.  Lots of fun stuff! 

Hope you had a wonderful Halloween!  Come back for much more paper crafting goodies!
