Hello everyone!  It’s been a while since I last posted but I have been busy in my craft room.  I’ve been working on a couple of parties for friends and thought I’d show you what I’ve been up to.  I also have two Studio J layouts for the Out of a Hat Challenge blog this week, so if you’re looking for that scroll down.

This first project is a birthday invitation to a pool party for my friend’s daughter’s 10th birthday.

Pool Party Invite

I thought tropical would be bright and fun for a pool party, so I used some of my CTMH stamps and Dotty For You paper remnants for that tropical feel.  The waves were cut out with my Cricut, and what would a backyard pool party be without a lot of sunshine and a pair of flipflops?  Let’s hope she has a beautiful, hot sunny day for her birthday party.

My next project is for a baby shower I am attending this weekend.  I volunteered to make the favours and a diaper cake.  Here is the baby shoe favour which was cut out with my Cricut and the Artiste Cricut cartridge.

Baby Shoe FavourIsn’t that adorable?  I love the plaid paper.  It’s from the My Time Made Easy Bringing Home Baby Girl digital paper pack.  Here is the diaper cake…Diaper Cake

I’ve never made one of these before but found it really easy and fun.  The mom-to-be is expecting a girl as you can tell.  Let’s hope the ultrasound was right, lol!

And since we’re on the subject of babies, I thought I’d share a couple of CTMH Studio J layouts I made of my kids to document the first few years of their lives.  I will enter these into the Out of a Hat Challenge this week for the photograph challenge.  Here is my son from newborn to age 5.

These Close To My Heart Studio J layouts are really great if you don’t have the time to scrapbook your photos in the traditional way.  All you do is upload your photos to the Studio J site and pick your digital papers/layout.  Super fast and easy.

Well that was a lot of stuff for one post but I hope you enjoyed browsing through everything.  I’ll be back in a day or two to bring you the My Time Made Easy June releases so come on back.  Until then have a great day and happy crafting!
