It's Party Time!

Yep that's right!  We are having a blog hop and it's FULL of party ideas straight from Clear and Simple stamps March/April release!

Here is a little bit about my party and then I will share some pics...

New Image

This whole party was inspired by 2 things.  First off the new Clear and Simple set, Party Elements: Baby.  I love this set for so many reasons but it comes with many elements perfect for making your own invitations!  Once I had the pink invitation done, I picked up the giraffe die from the Baby Shower die set and thought what a cute party that would make!  A Pink Giraffe Party...


Here is the invitation again.  I used the number "1" from the Alpha Dots alphabet set and then wrote in her name with black pen.  I added a little ribbon tab at the top.  This is just a fun little element I used on the treat bags too!


And then the cupcakes!  Easy to make with the die, a little heart stamp from the Baby Shower set. I just attached each to a toothpick for easy cupcake flags.  


Here is a close up...


I cut out a stencil of the giraffe and used it to airbrush a little giraffe on each plate just for a little extra decoration...


I added a monogrammed label to each glassine bag, closing the tops with some pink polka dotted ribbon. The letters are from the Alpha Dot set and that gorgeous frame stamp is in the Party Elements: Baby set.  


I hope you like my little party!  There is lots more for you to see!  Here is a list of links to check out...
