Party Time!

FOR THE YOUR STORY BLOG HOP CLICK HERE!!!


My little baby Jayden is turning 1 on January 11, 2011! I cannot believe how fast this year went.. Im gonna cry on her birthday I just know it.. (I cry on her month birthdays lol). I have all of this stuff made kind of early (we're doing her party on Jan 1, 2011 so that family can come since we'll be home then). Why so early you ask? Well... we are leaving WY (and my Cricut and all my crafty things) On Dec 12 and won't be back until Jan 5 so I have to get it done now!
This week at SweetSassyDiva DT our challenge was to make party stuff.. (invites, banners, gift bags, cakes etc.)
- What you'll need -
For the invites:
premade cards (I made a total of 19)
blue card stock
bright blue ink pad
hot pink card stock
neon green card stock
purple card stock
black card stock
black Glaze pen
black ink pad
clear accents
Plantin SchoolBook
Create A Critter
Cricut
adhesive
Cuttlebug
divine swirls embossing folder

For the gift bag:
brown gift bag (got mine at the dollar tree 2 for $1)
hot pink cardstock
blue card stock
purple card stock
neon green card stock
black glaze pen
adhesive
double sided foam tape
Create A Critter
Wild West
Cricut


- How To Make It -
The invites:
Cut the blue cardstock to the size of your premade cards (a little smaller than the front) and emboss with the Cuttlebug and Divine Swirls folder. Take your blue ink pad and rub over the blue card stock to give a little dimension to the swirls. Adhere the blue cardstock to the front of the card. With Create A Critter cut some whales and jellyfish (I cut my whales and large jellyfish at 3 inches and my smaller jellyfish at 2 inches). I cut them in pink and purple and saved the green for the tags (its a girl party so I just wanted the green to be an accent). Adhere the whales and jellyfish on the cards (upper middle). With Plantin SchoolBook cut out the #1 using roly poly at 11/4 inch in the green, purple & pink cardstock. Cut some strips of green & pink (they are the ones the words will show best on) approx. 1x4 inches and distress the edges using the black ink pad. Write the sentiment (I had wrote all of mine a stamp or printed version would work just fine) with the black Glaze pen. I just decided to come up with my own theme for Jaydens party, I already knew what I wanted so I didn't have to search for anything. I placed the strips diagonally and put opposite colored 1's over the end of the strip. I then covered the 1's in clear accents to give it the look of water.


The gift bag:
I cut the purple jellyfish at 4inches and the pink whale at 5inches. Adhered them to the bag toward the middle. Cut the strips of waves by the whale by hand and put foam tape on the bottom one to make it pop. I also cut the bubbles by the jellyfish out by hand. Using Create A Critter I cut the "happy birthday" at 2 inches in green, and with Wild West I cut all the other letters and the 1's. I cut the green 1 using shadow at 3 inches and the purple at 3 inches w/o shadow on, and the shadow green "st" at 2inches and w/o shadow in purple at 2inches. Cut "Jayden" in both green and purple at 2 inches (and shadowed them myself using opposites). I cut the "BABY" at 2 inches and the "baby" at 1.5 inches in hot pink. Easy!
