Project Rewind: Horse Party Ribbons

Horse Party Favor Bags
Design Team Member Belle Donaghey has taken an old project and made it new again.

Today I’m going to share with you a project I’ve created for my daughter’s upcoming birthday that was based on a Halloween project that Michelle created some time back. The project I am using for inspiration is the Halloween Costume Party Ribbons.

I loved the idea of these party ribbons and considered using them as name tags, but then settled for making them into gift bag decorations personalised for each of her friends.

I love pink and brown used together, and I already had kraft gift bags in my stash, so the colours all worked really nicely together. I introduced some white with the paper doily and the centre medallion with the horse image on it. Using only a few colours makes this project straightforward, quick & easy. I separated the cutting files and grouped them by the colour I was planning to cut each shape in.

The rosettes are a cinch to fold and glue together and look fantastic. It adds a 3 dimensional aspect to the project and some sturdiness to the bag too. For extra texture I ran both the paper bag and the ribbons through my embossing machine. I left the brown piece flat so I could apply Charlotte’s name in white vinyl on a smooth surface. (I used the font Blackjack.)

Quarterly Challenge

Challenge PrizesWe are going to go from Monthly Challenges to Quarterly Challenges.  This will allow more people to participate and give you more time to work on your projects.

This Challenge is going to be a fun one.  Using one of the the Project Patterns, create a layout, card or any other project.   You can do it just like they are laid out, or think outside the box and do something completely different, while still using pieces of the Project Pattern.

If you have never used the Project Patterns, then check out the class from March 15, 2015 where we show you how to use them with you InVue Software or your Inspiration Software.

After you have completed your project, then go upload it to the 2nd Quarter 2015 Challenge folder.   If you aren’t sure how to add a photo to the album, the instructions are here. 

Remember, the challenge winner is chosen randomly, so this means anyone can win, even if you are a beginner or veteran.  Want to see what your prize choices are?  Click here to take a look.

Spring Wreath Print and Cut Gift Tags

Spring Wreath Printable Tags

In real life I stink at making wreaths. I’ve tried and failed a few times, so I was pleasantly surprised when my paper wreaths turned out. I created these wreaths in the InVue software and it turns out having an undo button is a handy thing. If there was an undo button in real life I’m sure I could master real wreath making too.

Easter Egg Shaped Box

Shaped Easter Egg Box

The Easter Bunny is on his way! I am so excited! I love dressing up for Easter service at church, watching the kiddos hunt for eggs and of course putting together Easter baskets for my kiddos. The school will have an egg hunt and Easter party too! One thing we like to do as a family is give small gifts to the neighbors and the teachers and staff at the school. I created this Easter egg box just for that!
