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.

Jarred Florals

How's your summer so far?  Me... I am just returning from a long vacation from down south.  So I am probably folding a lot of laundry. TheXyronTeam andACCOare playing all week with staplers and cutters.  Which means anything goes creatively!  I am so thrilled to use their Guillotine Trimmer LiteI don't own one so this is super exciting... 10 papers at one time!  
(all supplies used is linked for your convenience)

Time to crack into my new Flower Jar stamps and Framelits dies and a whole lot of colouring.
Once the colouring was done I added a little touch of dimension to these teeny wildflowers with a stylus and water.  It's my first cut with the Guillotine Trimmer Lite, dang thats sharp.  Even for small cuts.
I ran the stitched circle cut through the Creative Station then used the Create a Sticker for the adorable teeny wildflowers.
The Pondering Words "WONDERFUL" cut is perfectly cut with the Guillotine Trimmer for this 3/4" cut.  I popped it on the edges …

Fall Colours

OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already there are fall leaves on my blog!  I really couldn't help myself.  I mean... you know me! This week Xyron and Newton's Nook are teaming up for some... AWESOMENESS!  Of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps.  Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal!  So many creative ways to make stuff.

I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.  

I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.  These are great for watercoloring too.  Yep, it happens from time to time... I fussy cut the pumpkins out.

I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Oxide Inks.  Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf... yep, more fussy cutting.  Oi...

More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Sta…

Wanderlust

I am pretty sure I have the "Wanderlust" bug!  I wanted to try something different so I decided to try some texture paste on the cover.  The matboard is tough enough to handle some texture paste.  I used chalk paint and texture paste to decorate my cover instead of paper.


Cut the superstock paper to fir the journal, 8x8 scoring in the centre to create a page.  I used oxides and stenciling to create a dynamic page.
Die cutting on pattern paper for some great elements.  Love the brush and foam for those small dies Especially the Gearhead die!  
See, all those little bits popped right out!  More inking and layering for these pages.  Making life easier with the Creative Station and these smaller detailed dies.
Lets make some trophy's!  I coated them with hammered metal embossing powder and coloured some distress crayons to distress it.
I cut and inked the Heart and Soul flower with more pattern paper.
I love the Ornate Frame #2creating some great vintage elements for this …
