Paper Pumpkin - December 2014

I've heard several people lately mention how much the love Shaker Cards, and I think Stampin' Up must have heard too. For Decembers' Paper Pumpkin that is exactly what the sent us! I love getting a surprise every month in the mail that I can escape to after the little one goes to bed and I can craft and craft without having to put a lot of thought into it.

This month we got a gift in our boxes - a Paper-Piercing Pack! I've done it before and this is an awesome set, can't wait to try it out.

With most Paper Pumpkin projects you get a small set of stamps, usually 3x4 sheet. This month we got a full 4x6 sheet of stamps! I love that they can be used all throughout the year. 

All the paper materials and instructions come bundled up and ready to go!

Here is everything included in the kit. The only  downside is that you have to punch out all those stars!!! It really wasn't too bad using the toothpick that was included in the kit. The words are on sticker paper so they are super easy to use.

The finished product! This project made 9 cards total (3 of each design). 

If you're interested in getting a crafty surprise in the mail each month head on over to Paper Pumpkin and sign up now

Happy 3rd Birthday Adeline

Ok Ok I know this post is quite a bit late but I have a ton of excuses! But today I'm home sick sitting on the couch so I can get caught up a bit with my blog posts.

Since we moved to Bristol, Adeline hadn't made many friends to invite to a party so we decided to have a party at my parents house and invite mostly family. Adeline got to spend her special day with all her favorite people.

If you can't tell by now, Adeline is horse crazy. But she is also Lego Friends crazy. So we did a combination party. I had a great time  making some of her decorations myself.

We celebrated at home on her actual birthday with a couple gifts. She loved it.

Daddy got Adeline her own Fishing Pole! Adeline loves it and plays with it all the time. She can't wait to go fishing with her daddy as soon as it warms up.

That weekend we went to Newport and had a great birthday party with family.

Mom and I made Adeline this awesome horse cake. I found the mold at Hobby Lobby and it was my first try at this type of icing. If you need any tips let me know! I sure learned a lot icing this big boy late the night before!

Thankful to everyone who came and celebrated the day with Adeline! I didn't get a bunch of pictures as I was busy enjoying the day.
