Creatures Tag Set

I just finished these simple tags...just in time to enter them at Creature Feature with H2H Challenge.

Supplies used: 0.5" and a 1.25" circle punch, Spellbinders die cuts, prima flowers, yellow glitter, ribbon, Liquid Glass, Copic markers, brown die ink and blue pigment ink pads.
Stamp sets used: D1544 Distressed Backgrounds, a stamp that comes in the Workshops On The Go® Later Sk8r and a small stamp set that came with my consultant kit called Critter Expressions (if you would like one, contact me to find out how to get one set for FREE!).

Thanks for stopping by!

Damask Divas Blog Hop: Later Sk8r


This is the Damask Divas Blog Hop featuring Later Sk8r or Tommy paper collections.
If you came from Amanda's blogyou are in the right place.

If you have jumped here and just discovered our Blog Hop, fell free to check the list at Damask Divas Blog to find the complete list of Blog Hop participants.

I used papers, the rocket embellishment and the stamp set from Workshops on the Go® Later Sk8r Scrapbooking Kit for my project. I had a different project in mind, but didn't have the time to make it...and since I'm behind on my scrapbooking, thought it would be nice to work on......my Project Life album! I finally decided to start one this year...

(O.K. I know my pics look really weird...my printer ran out of ink and I don't have a replacement yet. But I didn't want you staring at papers, so I didn't really adhere them down and will be replacing them later...sorry about that!)

I used my Slice to cut out the letters and the negative for "one" and I outlined some of the words with a marker. And don't forget to use the strips from the papers! The words are perfect as embellishments!

The next blog on the list is Shirley's!
Hope you have a great time on our Blog Hop!

Owl Birthday Party

These are some of the pics I took from my son's birthday party...I'll probably have the ones from my photographer this week...so, more to come! =)
If you missed the invitations, click HERE to view them.

I made the owls' picks with the Stampin'Up! Owl punch. Too cute to pass! I assembled them and drew the eyes myself with a Sharpie. The stars' picks were cut with my Slice machine (call me crazy...but I don't have a Cricut!).

The water bottle labels were punched with a Martha Stewart's border punch. Brown strips were hand stamped, circle labels were cut with the Slice and the stamped little owl is from CTMH promotion Whoo's your Valentine for January 2013.
