Sweet 16 Invites, Badges and Goody Bags

 
 Where does the time go!  My daughter is  celebrating her 16th Birthday today.  Since she is a summer baby birthdays with her friends are rare.  Either they are on vacation or we have been.  This year we promised to stay home so she could have her Sweet 16 with her friends. 
 
My Daughter is one of the coolest people I know.  She is an avid reader, she is her own person and proud to be and she ADORES The Beatles.  I had to create everything for her special day with The Beatles in mind.
 
I found at the $1 Store these cool badges that you can make.  I downloaded the Beatles font, Boogle and made all the Beatles stuff with this font.

Paul is her favorite Beatle so this was her badge.  At the party (Laser Tag) all the party goers put on these badges.  Each of her friends got the Beatle most like them.

The Invitations

I made these invitations like a Backstage Pass.  I wanted the invitations to be perfect for a teen. 

All these were simply created in WORD using again the Boogle Font. 

On the back of the pass I printed off the important info.  I blurred the location of the party for my blog.

The Goody Bags

These were so fun to make.  I hot the $1 Store with Teen Girls in mind!

Each bag is filled with emery boards, nail polish remover, nail polish, Skittles (my daughters favorite candy) and the candy necklaces. 

I attached the badges to the bags.

Using the new Tim Holtz die tag #5 I printed off this Beatles image then ran it through the die.  I stamped "They say it's your Birthday" at the bottom using Scrappy Moms Stamps Hooray for Birthdays.  It's a perfect fit!

A very Happy Sweet 16 to my beautiful girl Mercedes!  It's an honor to watch her mature and grown into a beautiful person. 

Please feel free to wish her a Happy Sweet 16.  I know it would make her day!  I'm so proud if her.

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Thank You Xyron

Well what a fun year it has been.  Xyron took me on with no experience and never even owning one.  Thank you to my awesome team and a awesome product to design with.  
The team is designing with their favourite Xyron product and I picked the Sticker Maker.  This handy little machine is perfect for my love of sentiments and letters.  A perfect pairing with my Sizzix Dies.

To create the backgrounds I need a thick cardstock that can take this amount of paint... Super Stock!  I created a colourful base for these wee Alphanumeric Thin letters.  

I lined the little letters up and ran them through my Vagabond.

Each little letters slides into the sticker maker easily.  I add them all one after another pull.  So quick and easy!  

I created the background for the card much the same way as the letters.  Creating a paper ribbon while I was at it.

With the ribbon and bow created I popped the ribbon part through the sticker maker.

Peel and stick.  It's hard to pick one Xyron product.  I often …

Last Minute Christmas Card

We are always looking for last minute card ideas.  Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time.  A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker.  How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.  


With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments.  Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.

Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker.  I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes.  I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.

Check out this simple quick card.

Look how pretty my stamp looks here.



Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful holiday.
