Happy Birthday Claire!

Claire’s 10th birthday was sprinkled with fun!  I made her this shaker card using her favorite colors.


Stamp Sets: Number of Years, Milestone Moments, Cool Treats (inside sentiment)  Inks: Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Perfect Plum  Papers: Whisper White, Tempting Turquiose  Tools & Embellishments: Large Numbers Framelits, Confetti Embossing Folder (retired), Sprinkles Punch (retired), Layering Ovals Framelits, Sponge Daubers, Sequins, Foam Adhesive Strips

The sentiment from the Cool Treats Stamp Set was perfect for her party theme!  I think she really liked it!

Claire loves her Paper Pumpkin kits so much she asked me to do a Paper Pumpkin birthday party for her friends. What fun! The May kit, Sprinkled with Love, was the perfect theme for a Donut Shoppe birthday party!


Claire and each of her friends had so much fun making the 3 different cards included in the kit. They did a great job!


The teacher in me gave them summer journals/back to school notebooks and they had so much fun coloring them. I found cute packs of colored pencils at the craft store.  I used the new Crafting Forever stamp set to stamp this fun sentiment on an Avery Label and punched it out using the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch. Just peel and stick for quick & easy party favors! I also made each of them monogrammed kits for their embellishments using the Large Letters Framelits.

They loved their notebooks and couldn’t wait to start coloring them.  It was cute to listen to what subject they were planning to use it for next school year. (I had Claire and some her friends in my Pre-K class when they were 4.) It was so much fun to spend the day with them!


How adorable is this giant donut birthday cake made by Claire’s Aunt Cathy!
