I decided to enter SVG Cuts Spring Challenge; create a Spring project using their files. Well, I believe I did just that. Warning: This is a long post, heavily worded with lots of pictures.
So here you have it Yolie's Spring Birthday.....cue the mariachi band please....."estas son las mañanitas"..... LOL
Love how the birdcages turned out! Each place setting has a different box and doily. I was short one doily from the collection so I used the Mum free file.
I stamped swirls and a bird on the brown paper bags, embossed the bottom, stapled the bottom sides. Added some twine and inserted the flatware. The stamps used were Branches4Flowers, Thanks4OneYear, Stamps4FancyLabel and MakeNTake LE #1 by The Stamps of Life.
Here is the list of SVG Cuts collections used:
Poplar Street Tulips
Crisp Days of Fall
Happy Birthday to You
One Piece Boxes
Candy Bar: I have lineage to Willy Wonka! Really I do. I paid a visit to the candy maker, got to see how they make Swirly Pops, Taffy, Peanuttles and Cup of Gold. Nom, nom, nom. Much like the movie, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I wasn't allowed to take pictures. Really no pictures and I'm related! Geez!
How fun are those pinwheels! They make me happy and yes, they do spin! It is a free file you can find here: Deluxe Pinwheel
Birthday2 Celebrate, Jar4Candy, Candy2Share stamp sets by The Stamps of Life.
The big flowers were created using gift tissue from Dollar Tree; each flower was a buck. I started to print a chevron print on white Kraft bags, but they kept getting jammed in my printer. Instead, I created a bold chevron stamp using my StampMaker .
Okay okay, so I'm not related to Willy Wonka, more like to an Oompa Loompa. My brother works for Adams and Brooks; they make the famous Swirly Pops! My husband and I got the grand tour and it was AWESOME!! Big thanks to my brother and to Adams and Brooks for most of the candy, there's some contraband candy in there. LOL
Banner: EAT CAKE
I loved how banner turned out and of course no birthday party is complete without a piñata! I was lucky enough to find it at my local dollar store...yeppers I paid a dollar for it. :)
I used paper from The Paper Company & DCWV Chateau Lavender. There was lots of inking of the edges here....added bling and doilies. I used various folders but one of my favorite is the butterfly folder designed by Stephanie Barnard. The font is a freebie named Circus.
Here is the cut file used: FREEBIE Gift Tags files and removed the hole.
