The box above is a Lauren Meader template and from memory I had put a Rich Razzleberry stamp pad in it, with some ribbons and other embellishments (brads etc). Forgot to take pics of the goodies! This was one of the cards I sent along with a cute little fold up 'wallet' which holds two tea bags. I closed it with a magnetic clip and used the Parisian Breeze papers.
This is a matching set with notepad, grocery list and some pens which came from Convention. And I can't believe I forgot to take a photo of the rest of my July swap! But it was a tea time box (another Lauren Meader template) made in the parisian breeze papers, which had a very vintage wheel in it and was sent with the rest of these goodies. The magnet somehow didn't make it into the parcel in the end so I sent it with the next one.
AUGUST This was the third and final SS gift. Inside the tool tote was:
- 1 roll of SU! Old Olive Ribbon
- American Crafts chocolate taffeta ribbon
- A handmade magnetic clip
- The 'Big Flower' stamp which will be in the upcoming catalogue
- Some bling for cards (pearls and crystals from Kaiser)
- A mixed bag of flowers and butterflies cut from felt using the big shot machine. The butterflies are another new die which will be out in the new catty
- And a cute paper bag album that Julie could decorate herself.

For my card this week I have used some fabric adhesive 12x12 sheets by American Crafts. All other supplies on my card are Stampin' Up! I stamped the cupcake directly onto the polka dot and chocolate coloured fabric and then cut them out. I placed the base of the cupcake directly onto the card and raised the 'frosting' using pop dots.
Supplies: Stamps by Taylored Expressions.
Paper: DCWV (in a huge pad from Big W, and it's gorgeous!)
Card: chocolate chip, very vanilla.
Ink: Chocolate chip, regal rose, black
Other: satin ribbon, prismacolour pencils, gamsol, dimensional pearls in Espresso by Ranger.
The kids had a great time, and the party bags were a hit! I really wish that the birthday girl would have let me make her the Twilight cake or cupcakes I wanted to but she insisted on the one with the mini M&M's and Kit Kats (she has a very sweet tooth like her mum!) so her cake didn't match the theme, but she loved it which is the main thing!
For games we played 'pin the fangs on Edward' and we had a Twilight Quiz which was fun!
Miss C found the fangs online and printed and cut them out. The person that got the closest won the prize :) Miss C and her friends. Obviously the New Moon video had finished playing because it looks like election stuff was on the TV. LOL Not that we watched any of it! The birthday girl cutting her cake. Opening presents :)
We followed the theme through to the drinks and I found some bottle labels online and printed them out before attaching them to the bottles of Creaming Soda.
Dinner was pizza, party pies, sausage rolls etc. Followed by cake and all served on Twilight plates of course :) Miss C and her friends. Another one of the little tables in the hall that we had set up. We had lots of candles around and it all looked really nice at night when they were all lit. The entrance table with the candles lit. A few people must have left already because some of the bags are missing ;)
