Day 1: September 3, 2011
Now, what birthday party doesn't have cake with candles. Make a wish and blow out the candles! This dimensional cake was cut from Life's a Party which has some fantastic 3-dimensional cuts for all types of parties. I again, used the Stickles and was told once I played with them I wouldn't want anything else --- well, they're right and I have sparkled everything in my dining room!!! When these dimensional center pieces are cut out, they are only one (1) color, sew, I colored the candles with my markers and again play with my stickles! The best part of this cake is that is calorie-free!
Now, on to the presents!!!! (My favorite part of course!) On Love to Crop, Amy had a project that was a box card which I love!!!!. This is my second box card that I have made and am quite pleased with the end results! It would be sew much better with a Score Pad but considering I don't have one in my possession (HINT HINT HINT), I improvised with my quilt rulers, mats, and my paper piecing pressing tool! The belly band has a lacey circle cut from my Essentials which is a built-in cartridge on my E2. Tinkerbell (oops Tink must have had a ward drobe malfunction as heaven forbid she doesn't have her trademark green dress) cut from Classic Disney (cut at 3-3/4-inches) on the top has left Susan a bit of fairy dust and chocolate --- oops bad Tinkerbell for eating the chocolate!!! One outta two ain't bad!!! Tink has been shaded with my colored pencils and yes, Stickles and I have become great friends as she even has Stickles!!!
Don't forget to stop and wish Susan a very Happy Birthday!!!! Well, hope you enjoyed the start of Susan's party --- now, lets move this party to Amber's blog.
