Happy Birthday Erinn!

I had such a fun time last night. Jamie asked me to do a surprise birthday party for her daughter Erinn along with two of her friends. She got a Cuttlebug for her birthday! She was so excited. She is a really great crafter and enjoys making cards for friends and family. I had three projects for the girls to create. They had a great time and were such good students.

Project One: Sour Cream Container

Erinn likes bright fun colors, so we used a great paper to create the fun containers. Inside are three Hershey nuggets. Candy's always a hit. The girls thought these containers were a lot of fun and easier to make than they thought they would be. I'll bet they will make more of them.

Next each of them made a personalized notecard with their own initial. They used the cuttlebug for the texture on the bottom of the card. Embossing is a blast.

After the Cold Stone Creamery Ice Cream birthday cake - oh yum! We did our last project which is a little mini album to preserve the memory of the night. It is just a square of cardstock with folds. The outside has a cuttlebug embossed front with a fun flower and a ribbon which wraps around the whole thing to hold it closed.

Now open it up and look! We stamped some fun images and colored them and added a photo of the girls. We even did a little heat embossing on the blue square. Lots of ooohs and aaaaahs on that one. lol It's like magic! The blank area is for them to journal about the evening.

They got a little crazy by the end. Was it a sugar high? Or being up late? Whatever it was they laughed and had a great time and that is the point.

Thanks for stopping by. Come back soon!
