Close To My Heart "Paper Cupcakes" Blog Hop!

Hello Everyone!

Thank you for joining us in the Close To My Heart 
"Paper Cupcakes" blog hop.  
This is my first month of Blog Hop fun, so please be kind to me, if I don't get all the details correct.  

You should be hoping over from the very talented

The challenge for this month's hop was to use the "Noel" key on page 79 of the Artiste booklet.
To view all the images for the "Artiste" Cricut cartridge please click HERE.

Since the Holidays are just around the corner and I am the kind of mom that will always send a little gift to all my children's class mates.  I have decided to make bookmarks for 91 students at my kids school.  So I tried my hand on one using "La Belle Vie" paper packet.  

This is the perfect paper packet for the teacher's bookmarks.

Using the "Artiste" Cricut cartridge was easy, I simply used the Accent 1 to cut out the Snow Flake base and the Accent 1 + shift key to cut out the Snow Flake base.

Don't forget that every month you can purchase a new D-size stamp set for just $5.  
This month make your $50 or more purchase of Close To My Heart products to qualify for the special pricing on this adorable "Save the Date" stamp set which is ONLY available for one this November.

 Need a BIGGER incentive?  

When you make your purchase of $50 of CTMH products and purchase the $5 November SOTM, you may pick ANY stamp set at 50% off.  Now that's something to hop about!!!

Speaking of hoping, please HOP on over to Karen Cullen's blog to see the next and last creation.

Thank you for stopping bye!

Angry Bird Party Decorations

 Empty Scentsy boxes covered with grocery store paper bags
 Little pinatas from Tijuana, I just had to change their eyes because the eyes were just circle punches and did not look anything like the actual Angry Birds.
 I made vanilla and chocolate cupcakes with whip cream as the topping.  The cupcake stand are three party platters from Party City and two candle holders from Ikea.
 Cupcake toppers are cut circles from my Cricut, punches from my Stampin Up punch and Angry Bird cut outs on Popsicle sticks.
 Angry Bird wreath for our entrance.
 Our entrance with foam characters
 This just cost $4 to make... four beach balls from the .99 cent store, I used a sharpie to free hand the pigs on the balls.  Used acrylic white paint that I had from the kids art supplies for the eyes.  And all the boxes came from my fellow consultants that were kind enough to save their shipment boxes and I wrapped them with grocery store paper bags.
 My husband made this giant sling shot for the party.

 These puffy tissue balls cost $6.99 at Party City, so I went to the Dollar Tree and purchased 10 packets of tissue paper and made my own for $10, I was able to make over 30 of those cute tissue balls.
 Glass vases from Walmart with the matching ribbon, bird and candy.
 Gift table: used my son's poster as the backdrop
 Table toppers
 Goodie boxes with piggy banks.
Minnie wreath from the Dollar Tree and shredded paper bag strips.
I was able to find the Angry Bird font for free on the web, so I made this banner with all sorts of little birds all over it.
