Thanks for joining me from Annie's page! Doesn't she have a knack for creativity?
July is one of my favorite months! Coming up on July 18th I will turn 35. I will soon be in my "mid" 30's! Time really does start to fly once you become an adult! It is also the month of one of my favorite holidays: Independence Day (aka: July 4th!). I love everything about July 4th: picnics, BBQ's, fireworks, red, white & blue and watermelon! Right now I am enjoying spending time with my family in Maryland and Virginia. Being here brings back lots of memories spending July 4th with family here when I was a kid!
My 3d project is my favorite one thus far... mostly because I LOVE cake, but also because it's really cute! Wouldn't this make a great little gift for a friend, paired with a balloon, a noisemaker, and a banner? It's a party in a bag!
At first glance you might think it's actually a mini cake, but it's not! It's a candle! I got the original idea by searching pinterest for 3d ideas. Check out the blog I used for the instructions here! Thanks to Jill George for the great idea!
I used a lot of pearls on here because I wanted it to look like a cake you'd get at a bakery. I am in LOVE with the Patio Party DSP party used for the sides of the cake!
Pre-lit tealight from JoAnn's (2 for $2.99)
Card stock: Raspberry Ripple, Regal Rose, Wild Wasabi
Patio Party DSP
Punches: 1 3/4" and 2 3/8" scallop circle
3/4" circle, Bird Builder, Boho Blossoms
Two Birthday cards:
The first card uses Topsy Turvy Celebration... I debated getting this set but ended up getting it free! I LOVE the cakes and the potential for making "fun' cards. The DSP is Patio Party and I used the cupcake punch to punch out the silver sparkly candles!
This card is made using the Top Note die. It's SOOO easy... use your favorite DSP, fold over 1/3 to make the "top" (don't forget to use your paper snips to "snip" off the points on the side). Add a ribbon strap and button closure.
This is my bonus fabric project! I wanted to get my 8 month old cousin a cute headband from the "cart at the mall". I found out those cute headbands are $10!!!! Seriously? I walked away thinking, I bet I could make a headband and attach flowers myself. I went to JoAnn's, got a $3 headband, cut out the flowers and attached them to the headband using a needle and thread. I used a retired pink button for the center of the flower. I then got the grand idea to attach the same flowers to onesies! I simply bought some heat and fuse at J's again, attache it to the fabric, cut out the flowers and then ironed the flowers onto the onesie! Isn't it a cute set? I plan on making little Harper a few more sets! :)
Thanks for joining us and continue onto the next stop with Nancy's awesomely creative projects!
