Fun Crafts - Winter Wonderland Baby Shower Invitation

I'm currently working on a baby shower. The theme is Winter Wonderland. In this post I'm going to focus on the invitations.

With the help of the soon to be parents, we came up with this design. My Cricut Machine did all of the cutting, but I had to glue all of the pieces. FYI, You might want to use a deep cut blade to cut the glitter paper. The regular blade wouldn't cut through the back of the paper. Also, initially I used glitter glue for the crown, but later decided to add more glitter. The cards were regular cardstock. Which made it easy to print on them with my desktop printer. By the way, I don't have an embossing machine. I rolled them by hand. FYI, a rolling pin will do the trick.

I love these invitations and I hope that I love the decorations even more.

Stay tuned for what we come up with. :-)

I used the Simply Charmed cartridge to cut the carriages on my Cricut Machine. Below is a list of the items that I used.

Birthday Party - Princess & Despicable Me (Joint) Birthday Party

Pic Heavy Post!!!!!!

When  my brother asked me to plan a party for my niece and nephew, I was like sure why not. When I was told that it was going to be a joint party and that the theme was Princess and Despicable Me, I was like OMG! I kept thinking to myself how am I going to pull this off. I decided to literally separate the parties. Half of the room was Princess themed and the other half was Minion themed.

I think that it turned out great. See for yourself. Enjoy!

By the way, the cakes were made by  Kee Kee KupKakes of Greenville, NC. She made my dessert for the Polo Themed Baby Shower that I planned. 

Fun Crafts - Blue, Yellow, and Black Despicable Me Themed Decorations

Hello, This post is a collection of the SOME of the decorations for the Despicable Me party that I recently planned. Like the Princess party, I forgot to take some pictures of the crafts that I made. Also, I didn't post tutorials.  If you have any questions, just ask.

By the way, I got the free printables from Oh my fiesta and Tony Staab.


Again, IKEA saves the day. I didn't even have to spray paint these frames. They matched the party perfectly. $1.00 versatile frames from IKEA.


I embellished the construction hat that I purchased from Oriental Trading with red battery operated push lights from The Dollar Tree. Yes, the hat lights up. I purchased the ribbon and foam letters from Hobby Lobby and the Giant eyeball from Oriental Trading.


I embellished the car that I purchased from CVS Pharmacy with a Minion label that I made from Avery clear address labels.


I embellished these clear cone favor box from Favor Online with ribbon from Hobby Lobby, yellow and blue sixlets from AC Moore.


I created this photo prop with a foam board from The Dollar Tree, I used photos from online for the decorations. I put the photos on the remaining foam board and cut them out with my X-acto knife. It gave the prop a 3D effect. I used fabric paint from AC Moore on the background for a splatter effect.


I embellished the yellow gable favor boxes with black ribbon from Michaels. The googly eyes were purchased at Hobby Lobby. The round eyeglass trim was cut with my Cricut machine.  I filled the box with mini cars, animals, etc.


I embellished this wooden J from Hobby Lobby with googly eyes from Hobby Lobby and The Dollar Tree. I spray painted it blue with paint from AC Moore.


I embellished the gumball machine from The Dollar Tree with ribbon from AC Moore, a minion figurine from Walmart, rhinestones from Hobby Lobby, and Gumballs from Party City.


Like the Princess pinata, I probably won't make anymore pinatas. I kept making mistake after mistake. It's my fault, but i'm a visual person. If I see something I normally can recreate it. I rarely use directions which causes me to have to do somethings over and over again. You would have thought that I would have learned by now. lol. Anyway, I was so busy, that I started decorating the pinata before I taped the box together. LOL. Then I forgot to put a hole in the box to insert the candy and to hang the pinata. After, I had a couple of false starts I was able to get it together. It turned out really cute!


I embellished the snack containers from The Dollar Tree with free printables. 


I embellished these centerpieces with yellow watch boxes. Yes, you read right! They are watch boxes. I never throw out a good box. I purchased the paper from Michaels and used my cricut machine to cut the eyeglass trim. I got the foam Stickers, and ribbon from Hobby Lobby, shredded paper from The Dollar Tree. I downloaded the printables from online and pasted them to the remaining foam board. I used my X-acto know to cut the Minions out. I secured them to a square Styrofoam that is hidden in the box.
