A Birthday Party Craft

Wanted to tell you about the birthday party I did. The party was for a girl just turned 10, her friends and siblings. They each used the Butterfly Basics stamp set, our kraft notebooks and washi tape. Most of the tape came from Stampin' Up! but I picked up some locally too. I have to say that I won't be doing that again. I got 3 rolls from Stampin' Up! for $5.95 and they coordinate with each other and our colors. I did pick up the newest set from the Occasions catalog. 5 rolls (5 yards ea) for $7.95 Sweet Dreams Designer Washi Tape Colors include: Basic Gray, Crisp Cantaloupe, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon and Sahara Sand # 137787

Here's the sample I made using the Sweet Dreams Set:

When I stopped by the local drug store, I found that their rolls had 5-8 yards each but they were $3.99-$5.99 per roll. I was super disappointed that I paid that much (total without tax- $14.97) for 3 rolls just so I could have some bolder options. The girls had fun though and I did too. In addition, I used some retired stamps to make them mustaches and lip photo props. Here are some photos of the fun they had.

Thanks for stopping by!

I love this set. It's got butterflies, a fern, flowers, background stamp, accents, words. 11 total stamps. Everything I need. This I bought the matching thinlits too. An awesome deal! 15% off savings

I got the Photopolymer, some adhesive and reinkers. Have to reink the ink pads so they stamp nicely. Totaled a little over $50. So I was able to get a free set of Blendabilities from the Sale-A -Bration collection too. I'll post what I did with that later. Here is the stamp and the first card I made.
