The theme for my daughters 13th Birthday was Butterflies. Colours Caostal Cabana, Calypso Coral & Gold.
The party favors were so simple, some lollies in a sealable C6 cello bag, cinched in the middle with a peg covered in washi tape with a die cut butterfly attached, the back a stamped thank you.
I love the butterfly branch that was the centrepiece for the main table.
I embellished some pretty paper straws with butterflies like I did here. Also used for the tea bags.
The cute candle was put together using some pieces I had left over & it looked so sweet with a little more than just washi tape, which is what I normally do with tea lights.
The party had to include some crafting so this year the girls took instant photo's with the frames we altered (a little help from my dear friend Louey) to use on an easel card, a lovely momento, keepsake.

I coloured the peg with Blendabilities before applying the washi tape which works a treat on the 1st sample.
I have made the bags with many different papers & all look great. I love using it as an envelope, like the shaker card & Crumb Cake ones, embellishing the pegs is endless for choices, all look really cute.

I sent these to my customers along with the catty's that the products used are in, the current Occassions & SAB.
I've now had a play with nearly all that I pre-ordered & loving everything, a few more things on my wishlist but for now will be sure to create a few more projects with what I have already.

"Big Day" is my favourite SAB stamp set. Everything I used on this card is new, the DSP is also from SAB, the Bow Builder & Ornate Tag Topper Punch's & Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim are from the Occasions. Image is embossed (celebrate with Calypso Coral powder) I'm yet to get & try the new chalkboard paper & inks which is the effect I wanted so made do with what I had. Simple but worthy of a post I think.

My colouring with blendabilities still isn't the best, I guess I need to practice but being a little impatient & time poor that is not going to happen so I am happy to just quickly colour & hope for the best.

A little fiddly getting the letters straight even with the Magnetic plate (jumping issue due the magnets) so on the first card I just let them go the way they wanted pretty much, but still happy with the result.
The Thank you card took some patience & tape to hold in place before running through the Bigshot but worth it.
