Valentine's Ideas

The mailbox I found in the Target dollar section. They seem to get these every year in January so if you missed out this year, try again next year. I covered it using hot glue because the paper is more like cardstock so I didn't think Modge Podge would keep it down. I stamped LOVE with C1401 Friendship Small Alphabet. The ric rac ribbon is the Hollyhock from the Ric Rac Ribbon Collection, which is 20% off right now online! The flower button is one of our newest products coming February 1st! The paper is not from CTMH, I found it at Robert's.

I plan on putting a goodie inside for my Valentine's every day starting February 1st until the 14th. I'll put the little flag up when they've got mail.This little guy will be going to grandma's, grandpa, and teacher. It's a mailing tube covered with paper. I used hot glue again, that's the only adhesive I've found that will keep it on the tube. I used Chocolate, Colonial White, and Blush Cardstock and Chocolate and Blush Ink for the card. The heart stamp came from D1194 All My Love and the "Be Mine" came from D1299 Thoughtful Seasons (one of my favorites). The tube measures 2 inches by 6 inches. You can put all kinds of stuff in it like candy, jewelry, lip gloss, gift cards, etc. My friend July mentioned that they are similar in size to the toostie roll banks you can find at the store. The candy is already inside, just decorate!

Princess Party Idea

The prep work for this party took a little bit, but it was worth the results! I ordered a cake from Walmart. They have mini cakes with different princesses. My little princess chose Belle. I also talked the bakery person into selling me the cupcake ring toppers. I got 12 for $1! I made cupcakes from a mix and got the frosting from a local grocery store that sells it by the pound. I put a candle in all of them so each child could blow out their own candle. The kids loved it!
While we waited for everyone to arrive I had coloring books ready that I had created. The girls had princesses and the boys had more prince pages. I printed the pages from this website and then stapled them together with a piece of cardstock for the cover page and added a label with each kids name on it.

Pin the princess/prince on the castle. I printed a castle from that same website and the little princesses too. Our guests were all pretty young, so we didn't blindfold them, just had them cover their eyes. The kids had fun with it and we were able to get them to do a few rounds.

We did a scavenger hunt to find a treasure. The treasure was a box of dress ups I found at the dollar store, tiaras/crowns to decorate, shields for the boys, wands and princess skirts for the girls. I didn't get a good picture of their outfits!

We pulled out balloons we had previously blown up and turned on some music for the kids to go crazy and dance.
Instead of goodies bags we let the kids take their coloring book and dress ups home.
This party was pretty inexpensive and we had a lot of fun!

Fanfare Cupcake Card

I thought I'd share a sneak peek of some new products coming in the Spring/Summer Idea Book.

The paper packet called Fanfare has fun birthday/celebration designs. The stamp set is a must have! It's included in the Fanfare Workshop Kit. The blue star was stamped using one of our newer colors called Pacifica. We also will have a 2 inch scalloped punch! The button collections have been revamped including various colors and styles and the price is better too!

All these products will be available starting February 1st!
