Crafting Cabin

Hey all

Over the Labor day weekend my family shared a lake house cabin with some good friends of ours.  I brought all the crafting stuff my car could handle with the intentions of getting my daughters' birthday invitations done.  Well my girlfriend and I didn't get much crafting in due to a Twilight diversion.  Those movies are just so darn good and we had to get schooled up before the next one comes out.

On the last night after all the kiddos had gone to bed we finally broke out the supplies and decided to make some cards to give our kids on their first day of school.  Here is a picture of our messy set-up.

So I decided to make some cutsy cards for my girls instead of a back to school theme.  We don't have to go buy supplies yet so I thought they might not get a back-to-school theme.  The card I made Charlotte was based on her favorite dessert and the card for Corianne was based on her favorite animal.  The recipes follow the pictures.
  • 6" x 6" cardstock
  • Patterned paper is DCWV from The Sweet Stack
  • Cupcake:  Once upon a Princess - cupcake3 at 3.75"
  • Stamped Sentiment:  My Pink Stamper - Sweetest Cupcakes
  •  6" x 6"
  • Cat:  Create a Critter - cat2 at 3.5"
  • I luv u:  Create a Critter - Koala Phrase at 1.5"
  • Crown: Once Upon a Princess at 1"
  • Stamped Sentiment: My Pink Stamper - Family & Friends
So those were the cards for my girls and I gave Charlotte's to her today.  She said she loved it very much.  The cards my girlfriend Angela made were also super cute.  I am hoping that she will do a guest post on her cards sometime soon, when her life has calmed a bit!!!  Did you do anything crafty for your kids back-to-school?  Drop me a comment to let me know.  I love new ideas!!

  1. Rebecca, thank you so much for stopping by my blog earlier. I love having the chance to visit new crafty blogs! How amazing it would be to take all craft supplies to a cabin just to scrap the days away with a friend!.... even if twilight did get in the way lol. I love your little cupcake card, so sweet :)
