Thanks A Melon!

Hi There!

Just wanted to have a quick share with you today. I used Amelia from the OA- Summer Fun set here to make a fun summer card. The sentiment is from Docerela Stamps called Summertime =) The shapes cut out were all from spellbinders! I am also entering this into the FFF challenge from TGF =)

Surprise Minion Party

Hi There!

So some background...my youngest sister was graduating from Middle School which so happens to be on the weekend of my brother's birthday! My other sister, Brother's Girlfriend, and I decided to throw them a surprise party doing a Minion's Theme from the movie Despicable Me =D Boy...was it so hard to keep it a secret with so much prep work.  I was hosting at my place and was very fortunate to have come across Minion collectibles which is shown below for the cake topper.  I customized the birthday hat and grad cap and the tassel is made of twine =) 

I also turned Twinkies into lil minions with googly eyes and added lips for animated expression on the wrapper. I printed out images from the web of minions and taped it against a bamboo stick to be the center of the Twinkies in the pail. These served as table decor and favors at the party.  The pails are from target and I customized the sign to say "Hope you had a Despicably good time!"

  I bought yellow cups, plates, and napkins. The cups were also turned into minions by adding black ribbon with eyes held together by glue dots and drawn on mouths.  To complement the yellow I bought blue utensils from the 99 cents store and wrapped it in yellow napkins and tied it with a bow using ribbon. These are then put into a bin which I also got from Target =) We also did a Minion Pinata from scratch and poster banners decorated with Minions on them which you can find on Annie's Blog...Thanks for stopping by and hope you had fun seeing what I put together.

Thank You


How is everyone enjoying celebrating Father's Day?  I needed to make quick thank you cards and was determined to use this kite set that I haven't put to full use! The kite is stamped on designer paper and cut out. The set is from The Stamps of Life and called "Kites2Fly. " The thanks sentiment on the lower right is from a stampin up set. I used twine as the string of the kite and used a punch to round the bottom corners of the card.

Carpe Diem


Just a quick share of a fun card I made for the Y&F Challenge- All About Dad. I used Chase here and gave him a mustache =D Don't you think he is so much more sophisticated with it...hehe.  The mustache is from C.C. Designs guy cut set.  The paper is from an awesome 6x6 MME paper pad I had and I used the Wonka Rectangles spellbinders die cut. The sentiment is hand written to mean "Seize the Day"! Well now...carry now and Seize The Day...Thanks for stopping by!
