Party Time!

It's my turn on the blog again today and its time to parteeeeee!!!!

This time of the year is always super busy for me at school.  My girlfriend and I go "all out" to celebrate World Teachers Day and I also have the job of making all the invitations for our Year 7 Graduates.  This year is a little special for me as my middle boy is graduating primary school.

We have an owl as our mascot at school.  It stands for Our Wonderful Learners.  Here is what I have been creating using some fabbo products from Couture Creations

The party hat I made by purchasing plain party hats and putting tinsel around them and also cutting out an owl image with the Scallop Nesting Dies.  The little picks at the front are made along the same line.  I printed an owl image and then used my Circle Nesting Dies and Scallop Nesting dies.  We have made 80 cupcakes so a pick will go into each one.

Soon as I seen the Hoot Hoot die I knew it would be perfect for our Graduation invitations.  I again used my Circle and Scallop Nesting Dies and teamed it with the Houndstooth Embossing Folder.  My little owl needed something to sit on and the Jasmine Dream die was perfect!    Here's a closer shot of the invite.

I have 70 of these to make so I need to get my skates on!

The owl lolly bag was a hoot to make! hehehe.  Here's how I did it.


Using the Victorian Square Nesting dies cut out your cardstock.  I have then ran it through my cuttlebug using the Walrus & Carpenter Embossing Folder from the Dreamscapes Collection.  I chose this one as it reminded me of feathers.

Then fold your die cut in half and you just have to finish of using the Circle Nesting Dies for the eyes and the Heart Nesting Dies for the nose.  We have 80 of these for all of our teachers at school!

Until next time!
