Wrestling Cake

This was a really fun cake to make. My sisters and I all made this together. It was a blast. It was for my dad's birthday. I really love the little wrestlers and the chair he is holding, hahaa. It was easy too, it's just a square cake and we used rope as the wrestling ring ropes and dowels covered in red fondant for the poles.

Star Wars Cake

I made this Star Wars themed cake for my son's birthday this year. I am by NO MEANS a professional, but I really enjoy trying these cakes out. It's fun to make "fun" cakes for my kids. And they will always remember thier birthday cakes.

StAr WaRs BiRtHdAy & CaKe

This year, my son decided he wanted a Star Wars themed birthday. I had a really hard time finding decorations for this theme. The nearest party city is too far away. So I made my own. We decorated in black and blue colors and made my own birthday day sign.               

 These are just normal cupcakes with little star wars stickers on some blue and black cardstock.

I also get lime sherbet and sprite and made a punch that we called "Yoda Soda".

BaBy BoY PiCtUrE FrAmEs

These picture frames are for my little nephews. I just bought a wooden frame at Michael's and painted them. I then mod podged it with glossy mod podge to give them some shine. The names are cut using Mickey Font on brown and white vinyl. The dinosaur is from PaperDoll Dress Up and the Monkey is from Everyday PaperDolls.  I hot glued the brown ribbon to the back. This was very easy to make and can definitly be used for a little girl too.

Christmas Wall Hangings

I made these wall hangings using the cute christmas font on Winter Woodland and my cricut. I cut the letters with chipboard and the deep cut blade. And attached them with ribbon, I'm sure there is probably a better way to do it, but this is what I had on hand.                                        
 So super easy to make and very inepensive.(gotta love free and homemade). And they look great hanging on my wall!

Teacher Christmas Gifts

Christmas is right around the corner. It has really snuck up on us this year. I have been so busy making Christmas gifts and other things that I haven't posted much. But here are the teacher gifts I made for my kids' teachers. The Christmas tree box is from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More.
 The little sentiment that I attached. Inside the box is full of little chocolates.

Christmas is in the air and I'm trying to prepare. I already feel like I'm way behind. I'm working on packaging and tags for gifts. Here is the first box. It's made out of 12x12 cardstock and the bow is cardstock as well. I learned how to make this cute bow and box HERE.  

I used Winter Woodland for the trees and snowflakes.
