A Very Hungry Caterpillar Birthday!

Hello everyone! Happy Thursday! It's my pleasure to share with you all here and over at SHE'S A SASSY LADY! Today I want to share some decorations that I made for our grandson's 1st birthday! The theme was the Very Hungry Caterpillar.    First up is a pic of our adorable grandson! He brings us so much joy!! His name is Truman!

This is what I came up with:

I made all of the rosettes with the Martha Stewart scoring board. That is such a quick way to make these! Click to see one of these score boards for yourself! I used the Creative Memories Tiny Treasures for the banner. I used George and Basic Shapes for the circles for the food signs.

Here is a pic of the cake my daughter made! So cute and I think it looks just like the caterpillar in the book! :-)

Caterpillar Food sign was made from Pooh Font.

A close-up of part of the banner and the rosettes. I mostly used the Confetti stack from K and Company for the rosettes.  

Sorry that I don't have more close-ups of my creative process but I didn't think of it until it was too late because I kinda had to make these decos in a short amount of time! :-) 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

What's New at Close To My Heart!

Hello everyone! There are so many new and wonderful products and promotions available from Close to My Heart that I just had to share! Let me start by saying that it is National Stamping Month so CTMH has a great offer with a $50 purchase -------> You can purchase the "You Are My Happy" stamp set trio for only $10! It has a retail value of $47.60!! What a deal!

Next product that I am so excited to talk about is our latest Cricut cartridge: The Artbooking Bundle!! This collection is absolutely amazing and can be used for so many projects from Mini books to complete scrapbook page layouts! I will be featuring some of these projects that I am making so you can see exactly what I mean! 

In this bundle, you get the full content Artbooking cartridge, 3 stamp sheets and 3 die-cut chipboard sheets that coordinate with cuts from the cartridge! If you have the Art Philosophy and / or Artiste cartridges, this one works just like they do! This makes it soooo easy to create beautifully coordinated projects! 

Next up is the Stamp of the Month. This is a great program where this exclusive stamp set is offered for purchase by itself for $17.95 or for $5 with a $50 purchase! What a deal! So, if you decide to purchase the Artbooking bundle, you could get the Stamp of the Month for $5 and the "You Are My Happy" stamp set trio for $10! That makes for a grand total of $114! That is less than the retail value of the just the Artbooking Bundle and way less than the retail of all these products, if purchased separately -------> a whopping $190.55! Let's see....... $114 or $190.55?? Which would you rather pay?? :-)  Pictured below is the September Stamp of the Month:
