6th Birthday!

Good morning!  My girls and I went to a birthday party this past weekend for a friend of ours who turned 6.  She had a fun Willy Wonka themed party which meant lots of candy, a bubble blowing contest, a burping contest and even lickable wallpaper!  So cute!

When it was time to wrap up her present and make a card I turned to my Mint Motif sets, I've Got Your Number and Sweet Hearts, for the candy-theme of course!

We bought her this cute necklace with her name on it from Etsy (BTW, the owner was awesome!! She mailed the necklace out the next day so that I could get it in time for the party!).  So we needed a cute package to put it in.  A trip to SCS and I was reminded of these cute mini pizza boxes that Jen del Muro - perfect and so quick & easy!  As you can see I used I've Got Your Number to make an ultra glittery "6" by stamping the 6, cutting it out and running it through my Xyron to make it sticky and then sprinkling on the glitter.  I also played around a bit with some shrink plastic and made a little charm for the bow by stamping the bubblegum machine, cutting it out and shrinking it.  I added some Taylor's Tiny Twinkles for the gum!

I needed a quick card to go with it . . . enter Jen's Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT)!  There's a brand new one for February and, as always, it's awesome! I'm determined to finish all 12 of the SFYTT sketches this year (pssst - there's a prize for one lucky person who does!) so this was perfect!  I used the cute little candy jar from Sweet Hearts and put in the small 6 from I've Got Your Number.  The sentiment is from What a Card also from Mint Motif - all available exclusively at i {heart} papers!  I don't know if you can see it, but I added a bit of Glossy Accents to the candy jar.

Thanks for stopping by today - I hope you have a wonderful day!


  1. Oh Julie! What a fabilicious gift combo you've created! And that bitty charm ... it's the cutest little embellishment!


  2. These are totally cute!! I was just reading in the TCP forum that you homeschool! That is so cool. We just had our first and discussed homeschooling the other day. Stamping and homeschooling IS possible!


Thank you so much for visiting!!
