First Birthdays!

Standard

In Hawaii, a baby’s first birthday is a BIG deal.  It goes back to plantation days where infant mortality was high and if a child made it till his first birthday, it was likely to survive.  So, there was a big celebration.  Well, that tradition has lived on and is still celebrated today.  So, many of my card customers are looking for first birthday cards.  So!  I made some!

I LOVE this owl.  Made with the Playful Pals stamp set!  I love how he peeks out from behind the 1!  The nice thing about the photo-polymer stamp sets is that you can kind of ‘shape’ the stamps to be how you want.  So, I was able to add a little more ‘curve’ to the ‘look who’s turning’ to make it perfectly fit the circle punch out.

And of course, the numbers set is fabulous for these important ‘numbered’ birthdays. So, here’s to the first birthday and the wish for many, many more!

A Cookie Cutter Halloween

Standard

October is here, ya’ll.  IT’S HERE.  Ready or not.  So, today is to help you get ready.  20160927_193418

 

This is a super fast little project to get those favors made for the kids’ classes.  And, the pencils?  Target Dollar Spot.  The most amazing place in the world.

This favor uses the fabulous new glassine bags from Stampin’ Up! They are food safe, but I decided to be nice to ALL the innocent and not give candy.  🙂

The mummy couldn’t be easier.  Stamp, punch, done.  I chose it specifically because it didn’t need coloring or anything but you could do that if you wanted.  There are other cute images in this Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set, but we were totally going for fast and mass-production.  Add some googly eyes (or not) and the little binder clip (another fabulous new SU product) some paper scraps and you are DONE!  The sentiment is from Spooky Fun.  It’s a cute and perfect little set to keep to use every year.  Cute words and images that will coordinate for every Halloween.

I saw on someone’s pinterest making the little pumpkin out of a circle punch, the jack-o-lantern face and a stapled piece of the kraft rope trim.  JUST LOVE IT.  Could make millions of jack-o-lanterns.  And WAY less messy than carving one.

Quick.  Get some made today cause it’s coming… the end of October is coming…  fast.
