Flower Rings!!!

I made these with Melon Mambo, Soft Suede, Rich Razzleberry, Bermuda Bay, Dusty Durango and Crushed Curry. They are really easy to make, and I'll be adding a tutorial sometime either this week or next week on how to make these. The thing I used for the ring part is something they use in crocheting I think they are called "Bone Rings". These ones that I got are all the same size, 25.5mm, and they are all white.


Hope you gals like them!
Thanks,
Maxine

Grunge Bracelets

Here are some basic Grunge bracelets that I made with the inspiration of Beate. The backs are all a light brown, and they all have a shimmer to them. (Thanks Lacey) I didn't add any embellishments to them, because I wanted to keep them simple for a later class.

Here is my 1inch green/blue collection
Here is my 1inch pink/red collection
Here is my 1 1/2 inch pink collection

Here is my 1 1/2 inch blue collection
Here is my 1 1/2 inch purple collection
Here is my 1 1/2 inch yellow collection
If anyone is interested in these or a specific embossed type and color let me know!

Pin the Nose on the Pirate!

Here is one of the games we played at my daughter's party. Thanks SVG cuts for a great looking Pirate. It was actually something you can put on your door knob, but I made some changes so that it wasn't open on the sides for the door.


I made some noses after I punched out the flesh color. The kids had a blast!
I forgot to take pictures of them with their treasure chest and eye patches. Here is a picture of the Pinata though:

Headbands

I made these for my daughter, and for her cousins. I haven't seen anything like this on the market yet, so I was pretty happy with the way they turned out. If anyone is interested let me know. I made them with the old In Colors of 2009-2010 and some left over ribbon I had before I joined Stampin' Up!. Let me know what you gals think. If you would like to place an order for any of the Bold named headbands, you can click on the Kits section for you options.

My Daughter's B-Day Party


After going from Transformers to Princessess to Clowns to Pirates and on and on my daughter finally decided to stick with Pirates for the theme of her Birthday Party. I designed her invitations by trial and error. They were pretty easy once I got the hand of it and knew what I wanted to use.
 Here is what I came up with for the girls:


Here is what I came up with for the Boys:

I found the map online and I printed it out and burned the edges. I like the look, but inking the edges was so much easier. I used one of the #4 Texture Plates.

I searched and searched for a way to make a treasure chest goody box, and I came across Monika's post. What a life saver!!!! I whipped these up in no time and was able to put in some cute little stuff. Thanks Monika for the great idea and allowing me to use it!!

Here is what is inside:
I also made large cello bags for the candy that they'll get from the pinata. (I'll have those pictures after the party.) I have them for boys and girls.
Here is a closer look of what is inside for the boys:
Here is a closer look of what is inside for the girls. They'll only get one bracelet, but they came in two colors.

My daughter actually helped me put most of the stuff together, but since she still can't really tell what day is what she has NO clue that we're having her party soon. =) I think I'm gonna miss these days.


Thnaks,
Maxine
