Lora is 1!

Hi everyone!! I just wanted to share a quick post showing something I made for our granddaughter's 1st Birthday! I made a Birthday Statistics Board using a chalkboard and vinyl! I will definitely be making more of these! So much fun! This project is also featured on the SHE'S A SASSY LADY blog today. Be sure to check out her blog for lots of crafty inspiration!!

!

The stats were written with a permanent chalk marker but could also be written with regular chalk so that it would be able to be erased. 

And here she is in all her beauty!! <3 her="" love="" much="" p="" so="" we="">
Doing her princess wave with Papa, (my husband) holding her! :-)

I pray that everyone has a blessed day!

I used several Cricut cartridges including: Sweet Treats,  Birthday Bash,  and a few others that I can't seem to identify! :-/ Ooops! :-)  I love doing these centerpieces because, for the most part, they are easy to design and cut and so much fun to put together! Thanks for stopping by today!

Ladies Tea Party

Hello everyone!! I'm here to share my Ladies Tea Party decor! It's my turn to share over at SHE'S A SASSY LADY so you can also see this post over there.  Our church has a Ladies Tea every year and all the hostesses decorate their own tables however they choose. Of course, my Cricut Explore made this quite easy!! Here is a pic of my table all ready to go! 




I made various flowers, including some 3-D ones to scatter around the table.


I thought the Kraft paper paired with the different colors of glitter paper would make a colorful statement that could easily be seen through my clear glass plates! 

Each hostess also made the food for her guests so I made chicken salad sandwiches and orange tea cookies. The placemat under my tiered display is just a flower doily enlarged to fit nicely inside a 12x12 square of kraft paper. 

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Happy Birthday Centerpiece

Hi, everyone! Today I am sharing a little Thursday inspiration with you and everyone over at SHE'S A SASSY LADY!  I am always making centerpieces as gifts for people. I like to think of them more as paper bouquets! :-)  I made this one for a co-worker and she was amazed that I made it! (I just didn't tell her how easy it really was!) :-)  I used several different cartridges like Sweet Treats, Birthday Bash, Birthday Cakes and Celebrate. I simply cut my images out at the size I thought would look best and attached them to wood skewers and stuck them in a foam block inside a mason jar.  I used tissue paper to hide the foam block! So easy!




Thanks for stopping by today!!

Baby Shower Time and this time IT'S A GIRL!!!

So, I have thoroughly enjoyed creating decorations for my grandsons' baby showers - all 4 of them! But now we have added a granddaughter to our family and I am thrilled to make some girly decorations!!! Today it's my turn to share over at SHE'S A SASSY LADY so I just had to share my excitement there too! Be sure to check out Sheila's blog for awesome, daily inspiration!!  I decided to make a big centerpiece in a basket. Here is what I came up with:
Here are some close-ups:



I got all the various cuts from Cricut Cartridges. I can't seem to remember them all but I know I used Creative Memories Tiny Treasures, Cricut Lite Sugar and Spice, Baby Steps, Cricut Lite Cupcakes and Sweet Treats. There are so many great images to choose from that I just had to pick a bunch!! I also wrote on a chalkboard sign: 

I also made a little snowflake banner that can be hung up in her room!


I attached the snowflakes to the dowel with fishing line. These snowflakes are from the new snowflake cartridge, Holiday Snowflakes! So many beautiful choices on this cartridge!! I cut everything on my Cricut Explore! 

I would totally be remiss if I didn't share a few precious pictures of our sweet Lora, who arrived the day before her due date, Jan. 3rd! She came so quickly that her Daddy, our son, had to deliver her!! What priceless memories!! 


Here is our beauty at 1 month old!!

Thank you for indulging me! :-)
