Picture Perfect Party...Room Decor:

Do you use your Stampin' Up! supplies for party decor?  I have to admit...it's one of my very favorite things to do with my supplies!  😀  I love a festive party that makes people feel loved, spoiled, happy, excited, and party ready!  I partner with a friend and we do a couple demonstrator training events a year, and I ALWAYS have this as a goal of mine.  In THIS POST I shared a fun snack table we had.  Well...today I am sharing the room decor!  Check out how fun and festive it feels...

LOVE LOVE the balloons, colors, etc!  This is probably one of my faves that we did...maybe because it was all about Stampin' Up!'s 30th Birthday!!!!  🙌

I sewed this banner together using the Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper stack and some coordinating colored cardstock.  It was A LONG LONG LONG banner, and actually went around the entire room.  (I get a little nuts sometimes.  Haha.)

The tables felt so festive and fun also.  Have to admit...wish I grabbed better pics of the centerpieces.  They were pretty cute...

And then there was a bag they could fill up at the snack bar...

And a festive water bottle...

All in all, it felt so festive and fun!  A LOT of work goes into these events, and a LOT of fun (and learning) is had by all!  (We invite all demonstrators--and those that are thinking about becoming a demonstrator--so let me know if you would like to know about upcoming events!  They are held in the Salt Lake City, Utah area.) 

Let me know if you have any questions!

Picture Perfect Party...

Back in February, my friend and I threw a fun Stampin' Up! 30th Birthday Party as part of a demonstrator training that we did.  I just realized that I haven't shared some of the fun parts of this event yet!  Today I want to share one of my fave parts...the fun snack table we made!  We used the Picture Perfect Party Suite as our theme for the event.  LOVE the colors and fun papers that are in this suite.  Here's how it came together for our snack table...

Kinda fun, huh?!  Love the bright colors.  And LOVING these frames...

There is something about a crisp white frame with some bright colors that make my heart happy. 😍

And the banner was pretty fun also, if I do say so myself.  😀

Lots of ribbons & accessories were used on these projects with the main supplies being the Picture Perfect Party 6x6 Designer Series Paper Pack & the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set.  Swoon!! 💕

Let me know if you have any questions on this!  I hope you enjoy these projects!!!

Gorgeous Gifts...

I truly love giving gifts to people.  I love it even more when they are wrapped cute.  😀  It makes me happy to make others happy... so I guess it's kinda selfish for me to give gifts.  Haha.  (I'm sure the receiver doesn't mind, right?!  😛)  Anyway...I TRULY love giving gifts to people for special occasions--especially big ones like weddings! I went to a bridal shower the other night for the cutest bride ever.  I have lived next door to her and watched her grow up for the last 10 years.  So it's super fun to have been able to see a piece of her love story.  It is even more fun to attend her shower and bring her a cute gift!  I have to admit...kinda love how this turned out...

Colors: Whisper White, Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Coastal Cabana
Cardstock/Papers Melon Mambo, Coastal Cabana, Basic Black, Petal Passion Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Flourishing Phrases, Beautiful Day
Tools: Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Framelits, 1/8" Circle Punch
Accessories: Metallics Enamel Shapes, Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon, retired ribbons

I used a couple of retired Stampin' Up! products here...the take out box and the wide striped ribbon.  Stock-piled a little bit of both of these.  Hee.  And still LOVE them so much!!!  But this tag is where it's at!  It is the "Petal Passion" Designer Series Paper.  I just colored it with the Pink Pirouette blends marker.  😍

And I just love this greeting for her!  Because it is PERFECT for them!!!  Love it!!!  AND....did you notice...COASTAL CABANA (the BEST color in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD) is BACK!  There is a whole new color revamp coming up in June and THIS COLOR IS BACK!!!!  💓💓💓  You should of heard me squeal when I found out.  Hee.  Plan on seeing LOTS of this color!!!

This project didn't take me long at all and it was so fun to give her a fancy package for her fancy occasion!  Let me know if you have any more questions!

Thanks so much for visiting!!!

And this greeting...can it get any better?!  LOVE IT!  💓

Hope you enjoy this card!  Please let me know if you have any questions!
