Elena’s Shaker Balloon Birthday Party

It’s time for another brilliant party idea with Elena! This time she created a birthday party with balloons and clever shakers!

This festive birthday party combines balloons, shaker elements and bright cheery colors!

Elena started with a Stitched Party Banner cut from Twinkling Cream paper from the Let It Shine Starry Skies collection. Then she cut a Reverse Stitched Scalloped Square Window from the banner, covering the opening with acetate. She used foam tape and another piece of paper to create the pocket for the shaker bits. And then she added a layered Giant Happy Birthday greeting over the acetate window.

To make the balloons for the banner, Elena used Stitched Balloon Frames and Outside In Stitched Balloon Stackables with more acetate and foam tape.

The cupcake toppers are so creative! I love how she used Tiny Gift Box to look like the balloons are popping up out of the box!

For these smaller balloons, Elena used Party Balloons Lawn Cuts dies and Textured Canvas cardstock. To make the wavy white balloon, she cut one balloon with Ocean Wave Borders, then she glued the pieces to a solid balloon.

A little piece of acetate holds the Tiny Gift Box lid open and stabilizes the balloons!

The party favors feature more balloons on a Goodie Bag!

For the drink bottles, Elena added a Twinkling Cream band to the bottle before decorating with more shakers and star balloons.

This birthday party decor is so brilliant, Elena! I love how you included the shaker elements! Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us!

Christy’s Manatee-rific Valentine!

Christy created a beautiful card featuring Manatee-rific that is perfect for Valentine’s Day or any day you want to share the love with someone special!

I love how Christy framed her scene with a Reverse Stitched Scalloped Square Window! To fill in the ocean scene for the manatees she added foliage, shells, fish and rocks from You Are Sublime and Mermaid for You.

Christy used 6×6 papers from Spiffy Speckles and Watercolor Wishes to add pretty pastel color to her card design which was then popped up on a Ballet Slippers card base! To see how Christy put this delightful card together check out her YouTube channel!
