One Last Project...Er...Projects!


Before I go to bed, I must share this last group of projects that I created for the Taylored Expressions release! I made this card using the Sweet Celebration set and the Birthday Boy Key Ingredients Kit! To see all of the details on these products visit the Taylored Expressions blog OR the Taylored Expressions Store. Might I suggest the store so that you can go ahead and purchase them??? :) Anyway, I wanted to make a birthday party set and I had high expectations but of course, things failed miserably so I will have to try again later. However, I did come up with some other cute ideas that I think will work in the meantime.

For this set I wanted to make a fun pinwheel party gift that had a pencil attatched. I have seen these pinwheels on numberous websites and thought it would be fun to attatch them to pencils so that the kids would have something to take home and use! (To be honest, I was going to use pixie sticks but I can't find them anywhere!)

I also decided that it would be fun to add some silly string to this party set because what boy DOESN'T love silly string? Even my boy does and he is 25! I told him that he could use it AFTER I took the picture so he is pretty excited. Ok...I'm off topic again.

Finally, I made a card to go with the set. I left the sentiment off so that I could use it as an invitation, a thank you, or an actual Birthday card. I plan on stamping something inside, it just depends on what I finally decide on. I colored the image using my SU! markers. I then added the glitter from the Key Ingredients kit to the frosting. I love the look it has! I think everything else about this card is pretty self-explanatory. Let me know if you have any questions!

Well, it's time I call it a night...er...morning. I have to be at school by 7 tomorrow morning for a meeting and I am not looking forward to waking up! I usually don't have school on Friday's so I am definitely feeling bitter about this one. :D To all you teachers out there who go to school every Friday, you have my sympathy. I have seriously turned into a Friday wimp. I grew up going to school every Friday but have loved this great luxury of having Friday's off! Anyway, I am whining again so I should go to sleep! Have a GREAT Friday girls! I look forward to the projects you create with the new stamps AND the new sketch!

Steph - what a FUN party set! Really cute. And it's funny because I've been wanting pixie sticks for a project too and can't find them. It's crazy!
