June Desktop Wallpaper

Yeah, yeah, yeah… June is half way over.  But if I was the betting type I’d wager that you are tired of that June desktop you enthusiastically downloaded on June 1.  I’m just here to provide a mid-month refresh.  That’s it… this is my new strategy, not just that I’m horribly behind schedule.

Nonetheless, I hope you enjoy!

April Desktop Wallpaper

The first quarter of the year is over… and I’m totally okay with it!  There have been lots of crossed off items on the epic “to do” list.  March was full to the brim with family and friends. working, playing and praying hard.  Amen and amen.

 Bring on the April showers with this fun desktop wallpaper!  Call it “fun with triangles” or “impression of a rainstorm”… whatever, just download it (and leave a comment – it  makes me smile 🙂 ).

Cupcake Invitations

Nothing makes me quite as happy as a project that involves glitter, so when my friend, Lily, asked me to make some invitations for her daughter’s first birthday I was SO on board.  Their favorite book to read is You Are My Little Cupcake by Amy Sklansky and Lily wanted to theme the party with the illustrations in mind.

I started rooting around in the bottomless pit craft closet…  which led to pillaging the pantry followed up by a trip to Michaels…

Supplies: Glitter 12×12 paper in peach, Jolee’s Boutique candle stickers, photo mounting squares, heart punches in two sizes (from Michaels), white cardstock, invitation envelopes (from Staples), elmer’s glue, super fine glitter in purple, silver cupcake liners and various scraps of glitter paper left over from THIS project.

I used my small heart punch to use up the glitter paper scraps to make confetti for inside the cards…

Snipped the silver foil cupcake liners into four then cut off the bottom section…

Then came time to decorate the cupcakes, and I mean, that’s really the best part right?

For the insides I used the larger heart punch then attached the hearts to brads…2013-01-05 21.53.31

and added a yellow liner to the inside…  Of course, I forgot to take a picture of small hole I punched through the yellow and white card stock…  I sent sheets of vellum for her to print out the party details and attach on top of the yellow background with the heart brads.

The card part was simple, just 8.5×11 inch white cardstock cut down the middle, folded and a little trimming with a corner rounder.
