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.

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Apothecary Curiosities Coffin

Creepy coffin, I love this one!  I saw these little wooden coffins at the $1 Store and had to get one.  I ended up making this for a class and everyone loved making them.  Halloween is the best!  All the creepy stuff I get away with creating! I picked up these great skeletons at Michaels on a string of garland...6 per rope.  With a little force he fits! I made a template of the coffin and cut Tim Holtz Laboratorie paper to fir in the back. I accidentally broke my skeleton's arm.  Oops!  So, I glued his arm holding the glitter pumpkin.  SAVE! I picked up these skulls on a bracelet for $1.  Layering the Curiosities Coffin is key!  You want to look at the layers, like mesh, pen nib and a spider! I added the "shelves" using popsicle sticks cut to size.  This way it has a cabinet feel. The Apothecary Remnant Rubs are so perfect of the glass bottles full of eyes! Adding a little Spanish Moss makes it all creepy. I LOVE HIM! After the sprayed coffins were dry I sanded them to …

A BEVY OF MONSTERS

***WARNING...CUTE ALERT***

The Monsters and Creeps are out and around.  So lock your doors to keep safe and sound.
If you are looking for a great Halloween card that is UNDER 10 MINUTES to build this is it.  I made a variety of these to give you different ideas of creeps you can make.  From start to finish these Halloween cards are a breeze and would be perfect for a class, office and for some friends.  I made these in between making projects...mostly waiting for things to dry!  The googlie eyes are different sizes make them so cute. 
All the cards are stamped with Scrappy Moms Stamps Halloween set Bewitched! Mummy

Frankenstein
Candy Corn
Vampire, I love this one!  I didn't distress the white glitter paper.  Then added this red glitter glue to the fangs.
Ghost, I posted this the other day HERE
All my fun cards together
I cut the cards to 5x5.  Then I cut a 4 3/3x 4 3/4 black for the black behind the googlie eyes.  Pick your coloured carstock and rip.  I distressed the torn edges a bit then…
