Butterflies, Rainbows, and Clouds!

It's February and *crafty goodness* is in the air!  Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday because I absolutely love the bright and airy designs that you see on Valentine's Day cards- especially on cards for kids.  I really wanted to whip up a fun design or two this year, so I persuaded one of my co-workers to allow me to create cards for two of his daughters to give to their classmates.  And let me tell you, that I had a *blast* creating these cards! 

First up is Friendly Butterflies!

A New Twist on an Old Fav!

I volunteered to create some baby shower invitations for my friend- because I'm *always* down for a crafty project!  I was so excited when she told me the color scheme was leopard print and corral with accents of gold! How much fun is that?!  As I was planning the design, I came across an old favorite: the New Arrival Cricut cartridge!

Super Hero Birthday Party!

Wow!  The last year has been absolutely *NUTS*!! New job, new city, and new demands!!  I didn't have the opportunity to do as much crafting as I usually do, and unfortunately blogging was off the table as well.  But 2013 is a new year and I'm ready to get back in the swing of things!!

First post of the year:  A Super Hero Party!  I created invites and decor for a co-worker's son and I had such a great time with this one!!

I created the invitation in Cricut Craft Room using the Super Dad father's day card.  I modified the design and created the 'M' logo (mimicking the infamous 'S') to carry throughout the designs.

The decor consisted of bright primary colors, the classic 'boom' 'pow' & 'crash'  signs, and lots of city buildings!

Each child who attended the party received a "Super Hero Transformation Pack" that held a cape so they could turn into their super hero alter ego!  I created the packs using the gable box from Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More 2.

The party bags I created also sported the birthday boy's super logo!  The smaller bags were for the classroom party and the larger bags were given at the end of the actual birthday party.

Last but *certainly* not least - the cake at the birthday party was Ah-Mazing!!  The talented Nikki with created this awesome confection and  I wanted to make sure that it was featured in the post!  Isn't it fantastic?!?
