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.

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

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…

Paper Smooches Passport

It's no secret I love journaling of any kind including the Passport die.  Creating little books everywhere I go and with everything I have.

Xyron and Paper Smooches are teaming up this week and a ton of creativity.  Creating pages is essential to journaling and the Notebook Paper Twostamp is perfect for these inserts.  Check it out...


Roll the cover pieces of the Passport Die through the Creative Station, switching out the 5" refill for the 9" refill.  Work one side at a time to quickly adhere Wild Whispers paper.

Apply inside pattern paper, flip and repeat for the exterior paper.

To make things easier I used my new Tonic Studios Stamp Platform.  With all these pages I needed precision stamping for the notebook lines and teeny letters to create "notes".

I don't want plain pages... that's boring.  I inked and stamped the all the letters with antique linen randomly on each page.  Add a little paper detail.  But just a little ;)

Lets stencil because we can…
