Despicable Me Minion Party Invitations September 11, 2013

Hello! It has been much, much too long since I have blogged. But I have been enjoying life and haven’t found time to stop and blog I’m afraid!

I wanted to share some invitations I have made for my son’s upcoming birthday party. When I asked him what theme he wanted he quickly replied “Minions!”. So Minions it is! I set about finding a Silhouette Cameo cutting file, but had a bit of trouble. So I found a file that I used as a starting point and made my own.

This is the finished product – aren’t they adorable!!

Once the file was created it was quite simple to put them all together.

If you would like the file to use with a Silhouette Cameo please contact me by leaving a comment or emailing me at freshcutsbylu@gmail.com. I would post it here, but it doesn’t seem to be a file that I can load :( so sorry.

Well, that is all for today. I’ll post some pics of the party foods, decorations, etc if I get adventurous enough to make them cute too!

Happy Crafting!

October Card Class – Teacher appreciation and Halloween October 16, 2012

Unfortunately I cancelled my card class for September. It was for a good reason though – I attended our school market as a stall holder! What fun that was! And from there I have applied and been accepted to attend the Ruffled Bazaar Markets Christmas Spectacular, which is held at the Mt Gravatt Showgrounds, Logan Rd on Staurday December 1, 3 – 8pm.

Anyway, onto this month’s card class…

We’ll be making a feminine and a neutral (could be for a man) gift bag with matching card

Some close ups

The card size is 3 x 3

These are for those wonderful teachers in our children’s lives – or just for any lovely person you want to give a gift :)

We will also be making 2 sweet little treat boxes with a halloween theme. I love these! They would make such cute little gifts at Christmas or Easter, just change up the colours and embellishments!

How cute is that little mummy?? There is a frankenstein and witch in this stamp set (SU! Googly Ghouls) as well, which can be used in place of the mummy.

So, the usual detials

Class is this Thursday 18th October, 7.30pm

My House

Cost is $20

What are you planning for Teacher Appreciation Day?

Have a great week!

Happy Crafting

July Card Class – Little parcels of Love July 14, 2012

Hello everyone! I hope that this post finds you in good health and happy spirits.

This month’s class is focused on pretty packaging, that makes the recipient feel your love with all the time and effort you have put into their gift.

We’ll be making one of each of the following

First up is this cute little basket.

Can you see some delicious home baked goodies in here? Or maybe some soothing bath products? The possibilites will keep coming to you!

Next is this pint-sized luch pail. Isn’t it just darling?

I must add in here that both the basket and lunch pail ideas came from Nichole’s blog. Unfortunately the templates she used are no longer available for purchase, so I have created my own! I was quite pleased with the outcome :)

And last is a whimsical mini album.

A look at the inside.

Undo those pretty green bows to reveal the accordian fold pages just waiting for your personal touch!

This too was inspired by the talented Nichole.

Class will be held on Thursday 26th July at my home, 7.30pm

Cost is $20.

If you would like to come along please email me by Tuesday 24th July (freshcutsbylu@gmail.com)

Thanks for stopping in today, have a great week!

Happy Crafting
