It's Party Time!

Today is my oldest daughter's birthday.  Since we can't have a party for her - she's in Texas, we're in California - I sent her Monique Griffith's Sweet Treats Party.  If you haven't seen Monique's kits you really should take a look.  She has amazing double page layouts and other fun, fun kits.  She provides easy-to-follow directions complete with pictures and her kits include all the papers and embellishments needed.  Most kits are created using only one Cricut cartridge.  You can see her fantastic work  here.  If you happen to live in northern California, she offers classes and crops in her home, too.

I laid out all the cuts using my Gypsy.  I used one Gypsy layer for each paper used in the kit. After all the cutting was completed, I began assembling and this is the result:  a party invitation, a birthday card, a goodie box, a cupcake holder (Aly will have to provide her own cupcake - didn't think that would ship well), and a centerpiece.  I plan on using the centerpiece idea again and I think the ice cream cone goodie box is adorable!  Everything was cut using the Sweet Treats cartridge.

Well, that's it for all the projects I completed last weekend.  Now I want to finish some Card Fairy missions and then I have a few Valentine ideas to work on and the next project for my Guest Designer spot at Sketches in Thyme.

Hugs and Happy Crafting,

How sweet is that set?!?! I'm sure you daughter will love it. I love what Monique does and hope that I will someday have the chance to meet her. She is quite amazing!
