Make Your Own Princess Party!

Make Your Own Princess Party!

The long awaited return of the Imaginisce Enchanted collection has finally come! If you missed out last time, don’t delay as today’s steal is sure to fly. Not only is it fabulous for those scrapbook pages for your little princess, but it’s perfect the makings of a princess party.

As soon as I knew I’d be working with the Enchanted collection, I knew I wanted to piece together a little how to for easy birthday party ideas. First off we need an invite.

To make this invitation:

  • Make a card base from white cardstock  measuring 5.5  x 11″ and fold in half. Scallop the bottom of the card if desired and ink the edges.
  • Cut a piece of patterned paper measuring 5.25 x 4.5.” Ink edges and adhere to front of card toward the top, leaving a white border at the bottom.
  • Print out “It’s a Princess Party” onto white cardstock. Ink edges and adhere to front of card toward bottom of patterned paper.
  • Cut out a scalloped circle measuring 3″ in diameter. For Silhouette users, I used the Scallop Grid design. Ink edges and adhere to front of card.
  • Use a crown embellishment from Enchanted collection or other crown die cut. Ink edges and adhere with 3-D foam mounting squares on top of scalloped circle. For Silhouette users I used the crown from the Princess set. Add gem embellishments if desired.

Next we need to add a little decoration to the top of our cupcakes.

To make cupcakes toppers:

  • Cut out a scalloped circle out of white cardstock measuring 3″ in diameter. For Silhouette users I used the “circle scallop med” design. Ink edges.
  • Cut out a thin circle measuring 2″ in diameter.  Adhere to top of scalloped circle.
  • Use embellishments from Enchanted collection or other die cut crown.  Ink edges and adhere to front of circles using 3D mounting squares.
  • Embellish with sticker glass from Enchanted collection.
  • Affix to a toothpick and insert into top of cupcake.

Of course a party isn’t complete without a thank you goodie bag.

To make gift bags:

  • Find small paper bags in party section of the store.
  • Cut a piece of white cardstock  measuring just smaller than the front of the gift bag. Ink edges and adhere to front.
  • Cut a piece of patterned paper measuring just smaller than the piece of white cardstock, so that a thin white border will show.  Ink edges and adhere to front of white cardstock.
  • Cut a piece of different patterned paper in a strip measuring 1.5″ tall and the width of the patterned paper for the front of the bag. Scallop edges if desired, ink and adhere to front of bag toward bottom of bag.
  • Fold a silk flower in half and adhere to the front of bag on top of scalloped patterned paper strip.
  • Use the carriage stamp from the Enchanted collection and stamp onto white cardstock. Scallop edges if desired. Ink and adhere on top of patterned paper.
  • Trim patterned paper leaving a 1/8″ around the edge of stamped image block. Ink edges and adhere to top of silk flower using 3D foam squares.
  • Add additional accents if desired.
  • Print out name tags, ink and attach to handle of bag with ribbon from Enchanted collection.

One more addition to make the princess party complete—a photo frame to preserve the memory of the day.

To make frame:

  • Paint back and sides of wooden photo frame with acrylic paint that coordinates with patterned papers.
  • Cut a piece of patterned paper to cover the front surface of the frame. I find this easiest to do by laying the frame face down on the back side of patterned paper and tracing the edges with a pencil. Ink edges and adhere to front of frame.
  • Cut another piece of patterned paper measuring about 1/4″ smaller from the outside edge than the base layer of paper. Round and ink edges. Adhere to front of frame on top of the other patterned paper.
  • Cut out a scalloped circle from white cardstock measuring 3″ in diameter. Ink edges and adhere to lower right hand corner of frame.
  • Cut out a scalloped circle from patterned paper measuring 3″ in diameter. Ink edges and adhere to top of white circle using 3D foam squares.
  • Add castle from sticker glass to center of circle.
  • Tie bow out of ribbon and adhere to top of frame.

Now most importantly, may your princess birthday party live happily ever after!

Cards in a Snap! | Monday Card Madness #25

Cards in a Snap!  | Monday Card Madness #25

I can’t think of any product that is more fitting to help us celebrate twenty five weeks of Monday Card Madness, than today’s steal, the Pebbles card making stickers and chips.  These two products truly make card making come together in a snap!

For this week’s sketch, I made the design to highlight the circle stickers.

With the triple sticker sets it’s really easy to duplicate the design of a card and make three of them in the same sitting. For me it’s the initial creation of a card that is the challenge and duplicating them is a breeze. Another great thing about the sticker sets is the huge variety of sentiments and designs to choose from. The circle stickers really add the perfect touch with so little effort.

The cute mini chips are also perfect embellishments (but doesn’t mini anything at all = cuteness?)

I had a great time making all of these cards and the Pebbles product made them come together so easily. Don’t forget our challenge to send out joy! I know any one of your cards sent to another would truly bring a smile to someone’s face.

Also remember after creating your cards, post them to our Facebook fan page or personal blog, then leave a link with your creation as a comment on our blog to be entered into our monthly drawing for a little scrappy goodness.

Hope you have an incredibly crafty week! Be sure to check in tomorrow for part II of Heather’s How To’sday tutorial showing how to make ribbon flowers with the huge glue spots that she showed us how to make last week.

Say it with Stickers! KI Memories Gel Candy Epoxy Stickers. (MCM #18)

Say it with Stickers!  KI Memories Gel Candy Epoxy Stickers. (MCM #18)

I love today’s steal.  You know, I feel like I say that just about every day, but I do!  I’m like a kid in a candy shop whenever Melodee brings me new product to shoot for the page, and today’s steal, the KI Memories, Gel Candy Epoxy Stickers is of no exception!

They truly take me back to my childhood, to a time when I was pretty in love with collecting stickers.  Smurf stickers, Holly Hobbie, Scratch and Sniff, and of course,  I  always loved when I was able to add an epoxy sticker to my collection.   (Yes…they were few and far between wayyyyyyyyyyyy back then!)

For this weeks Monday Card Madness, I decided to not to have a set sketch but more of a challenge.  Your challenge is to use stickers. (Although by all means, feel free to use my cards to copy!)

I had so much fun putting to use some of the stickers in the Gel Candy collections as well as the Love Elsie collections.  I love the fresh colors as well as the slight demension that an epoxy sticker gives to a project.

The first two cards that I made each have a sticker from the Love Elsie collections.  I’ve always loved Elsie Flannagans whimsical, doodling style.

On the second card I wanted to keep the soft feel of the design of the cards and used my corner rounder on the sticker to take away the sharp edges.

I was honestly a little stumped as to which Gel Candy stickers to use for my other cards, because there are SO many to choose from.  KI Memories named their product well, as it truly is like being in a candy shop trying to decide what to use.  :)

I loved the pink stickers, so I used an assortment of them to create the design of this card.

I also loved the round circle from all of the sets and started using a bunch of them, but settled on one from the pink set for this card.  I added some rubons on top and was able to create a unique sentiment.

So how have you done on sending out joy?  I hope that we are starting to see cards surfacing all over the continent, to brighten someones day!

We will have the first Monday Card Madness drawing of the year next Monday.  You have until Sunday night to get your cards posted to our Facebook Fan Page with a link to the blog in order to be eligible for the drawing.  The winner will receive something great from our prize closet that will help in the creating of MORE cards!  :)

Be sure to check in tomorrow as we have another fantastic How To’sday, in the works!  One you will not want to miss.

Have a great day!  As always.  Scrap happy!  :)
