New To Shop | Honey Bee

May
17

What a day, what a day! I’ve been busy as a bee and sweet as honey to the neighbouring roofers who have taken over my driveway. The pounding and nail guns have been a bit distracting, but I have finally got my new collection in the shop! Oh yes, another new collection this week, I have been busy as a bee you see!

Pun totally intended. Buzz. buzz.

I am happy to have my new Honey Bee DIY Printable Party Collection in my Etsy shop!

This is another design I have been wanting to do for a while. Who doesn’t love a cute litte bee and honeycomb? I love me a cute bee and I really wanted to create a collection that was sweet and delicate.

Something that could work for a child’s party or a shower. Hosting a “WHAT WILL IT BEE?”  gender reveal party? Or maybe a “IT WAS MEANT TO BEE!” bridal shower? A little gathering for beekeeper’s perchance?

And I really just needed an excuse to eat an entire package of honeycomb candy. Yes, yes I ate all of it.

The Honey Bee DIY Printable Party Collection comes with all your favorites. The Honey Bee Invitations are sold separately and completely customizable to match your bee theme.

Buzz on over to my shop to check out the new Honey Bee Collection!

Seriously loving these favor tags so much I want to host a bee themed party.  Are you throwing a bee themed party this spring?

New To Shop | Cherrylicious

May

Ready for a little retro goodness? A little retro, cherrylicious goodness? Becuase today I added my new Cherrylicious DIY Printable party to my Etsy shop and it is totally cherrylicious!

I have wanted to create a girlie retro cherry theme for the longest time ever! I have always loved the polka dot and cherry combo, so very girlie, so very 1950s retro, so very rock-a-billy, baking housewife, little girl twirling in a circle skirt that spins above the waistline. Oh yeah! With a bit of feminine scalloped edging and ribbon trim. yes, I think this is it!

This collection makes me want to don my favorite party dress with a pair of peep toe shoes and twirl around serving Shirley Temple’s with a side of cherries jubilee! I think little girls and big girls alike will love a little cherrylicious party. Oh the ways you can spin this collection whether your birthday girl is turning 3 or 30. Cupcakes or cocktails, you choose!

Do you love this collection as much as I do? So girlie, so fun, so makes me want to sit in the grass with a basket of cherries and teach my girls how to knot a cherry stem with your tongue. If only I knew how.

The Cherrylicious DIY Printable Party Collection comes with everything you need to create your own retro girlie party, including party circles, bottle wrappers, banner, tent cards, party flags, favor tags and scrapbooking papers for a little crafting and cupcake wrapping. 

You can grab the entire Cherrylicious Collection in my Etsy shop!

Need some invites to go with that party collection? Invitations are available separately.

I think I just might have to watch CryBaby while I bake a cake. Now where are those peep toes?

New To Shop | Elephantshoe Collection

Feb

When I was a little girl, my friends and I would play a little guessing game. We would sit face to face and one of us would first silently mouth the words “I love you” and ask the other to guess what we said. The one who was guessing would answer, “You said I love you.” Then we would do it again, but this time we would mouth the words “elephant shoe”. The one who was guessing would again say, “You said I love you again.” And we would answer, “No, that time I said elephant shoe.” And then we would go back and forth randomly trying to figure out when we were saying “I love you”  and when we were saying “elephant shoe”.

I have played this game with both of my daughter’s and now when I say “Elephant shoe!”, they know I mean “I love you.” Have you ever played this game? Hopefully my new Elephantshoe Valentine Collection printable will encourage you to play this sweet little game with your kidlets!

The Elephantshoe Collection has everything you need to throw a sweet little Valentine’s Day party at home or in the class room! There is an ‘I love you’ banner. Large and small valentines to give to family and friends.

Party circles for decorating cupcakes, lollipops, treat bags and more!

Treat bag toppers for bundling up a selection of treats and sweets!

Bottle wrappers for wrapping around bottles of water or soda pop or utensils wrapped in a napkin.

Tent cards for labeling Valentine’s treats or for place cards on the table.

A sweet collection for a sweet game. Want to play?

You can get the Elephantshoe Valentine Collection in my Etsy Shop! Just in time to share the sentiment of elephantshoe with your family and friends.

bunting on the brain

I have to admit I have bunting on the brain this morning. I have always been a lover of colorful swags of bunting and have a pile of fabric alloted to make about 10 different sets in my ginormous fabric stash.  Bunting galore is on my wall of intention.

But this morning,  I am working a HUGE new printable collection and part of this new Sweet and Simple collection is bunting: for walls and cake. I do so adore mini bunting, don’t you? I think it’s my favorite. You can use it for EVERYTHING! Decorate cakes, cupcakes, savory foods, mugs, tables, chairs, note cards, gift cards and gift tags. Seriously, everything.

Which is why I am loving these bunting gift tags by Baby Jives:

Super sweet, yes? Sweet to give and super simple to make. Seriously one of the best ways to motor through your stash of fabric scraps. See, now there is no reason ever to get rid of your fabric scraps, hello bunting gift cards and tags! 

Jahje Bath Ives of Baby Jives has posted a sweet tutorial. You should go check it out and then get your craft on. Christmas is coming 🙂

Are you hosting a Halloween party  this year? Get excited because I have just launched my latest DIY Printable Party collection for Halloween!

I have been so eager to share this classic black, orange and white collection with you! If you want to host a Halloween party in traditional colours with a whole lot of sweetness, this may be the collection for you. A little spooky with a frightful BOO, but mostly full of sweetness with plenty of candy corn and a cutie patootie ghost wearing a bow on her head and I am totally in love with her!

The Happy Halloween collection has everything you need to craft a sweet and spooktacular party! Invitations with a DIY crafty flair, 3 sheets of party circles, 2 sheets of bottle wrappers, tent cards, favor tags, 3 party signs, ghost cut outs, mini chocolate bar wrappers, a Happy Halloween banner, and 10 sheets of coordinating decorative papers so you can create your favorite paper decorations in coordinating patterns. I used the paper to cover the tops of some loot bags, line platters and decorate lollipop stands.

We all know I love gumballs! So I had to make a giant candy corn out of gumballs and an icing bag. I just couldn’t resist.

And because I love a simple party DIY, you can decorate your invitations with a party circle of your choice! Simply, print and punch out your favorite party circles and attach at the top of your invite (guide circle provided on the invites). Candy corn and jack-o-lanterns for the boys and cutie patootie girlie ghost for the girls!

Seriously, I love her!

{crafty customers} eddie’s mix tape birthday

May
12

Last Friday I shared Emmett’s rocket ship party which was sent in by Eryn, one of my sweet and crafty customers. Eryn also sent me pictures of her husband Eddie’s 40th birthday party, a we love crafty Tracey custom design, to share with you!

Eddie is a rock and roll fan and grew up during the era of tapes (me too!), so for his birthday we created a mix tape design. Do you remember the days of tapes? Staying up all night, listening to the radio with your finger hovering over the record button on your tape player, waiting for your favorite song? Remember creating mix tapes for your sweetheart and best friend? Yeah, that’s what I was thinking when I designed this party for Eddie!

Eryn came up with rock and roll inspired dishes for Eddie’s party based on Eddie’s favorite bands and songs. It was so much fun designing this party and I can’t wait for you to check out Eryn’s pictures!

Eryn used the set of blank tapes to create a board for Eddie’s friends to fill in their best aging advice. I wonder what they said!

She decorated every area of the house to keep the theme consistent throughout!

I love how she used actual tape to accent the printables! I have to wonder what tape she unraveled here? Hmmm.

The drinks and food items were customized using (Eddie’s favorite) band names and song titles.

Eryn, I love the UB 40 tapes on the cake! Red, Red Wine – love that song!

Thanks again for sharing Eryn! I’m so glad Eddie loved his party decor, I had such a blast putting it together. It made me dig out all my favorite mix tapes, now I have to find my old tape player.

Want to mix it up at your next birthday? Don’t worry, the Mix Tape Collection is going to hit my Etsy shop later this week!

{crafty customers} emmett’s rocket ship party

I have something special to share with all of you today! Eryn, one of my sweet and crafty customers, contacted me about creating a custom party for her husband’s 40th birthday party and about purchasing our Rocketship  DIY Printable Party for her son Emmett’s birthday. Emmett is a HUGE fan of all things space, NASA and astronauts! This week she sent me pictures of both parties and I am so happy to share them with you!

Emmett’s party was at the Boynton Beach Children’s Museum in Florida and Eryn did a wonderful job decorating the space. She even used the Rocketship printables in creative new ways that I’ve never even thought of! Great job Eryn!

Thank you so much for sharing Eryn! I am so happy Emmett’s party was a blast!

Love this rocket ship party? The Rocketship Collection is available in my Etsy shop!
