Creation Station Design Team Hop - Birthday Bonanza




Welcome to the Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop and this month we're having a Birthday Bonanza. If you've hopped on over from Jennifer Downey, then you'll have already been spoilt to some amazing inspiration and if you've just started the hop here ... Welcome ... you're in for some treats.

I share with you some Cool Treats for a Summertime Birthday and have made some fun Bunting, a Card and a small treat bag.  



The bunting was made with a combination of the dies from the Frozen Treats Framelits and the Big Wish Framelits that accompany the Biggest Birthday Ever Stamp Set in the Annual Catalogue. I've not played with that set anywhere near enough ... so pulled it out and this is where I ended up.


A few sprinkles, some linen thread and you have yourself some cool bunting to hang. 


This card was inspired by a card I saw the lovely Paula Dobson create recently and a card I created a long while ago with punched out balloons as a neutral background. I really like the retro feel of this and the gentle shimmer of a lick of 'Wink of Stella' to the Ice Pops.


The Designer Series Papers, Tasty Treats are gorgeous! ... I just love the fresh cool colours and how each side compliments the other, so to make a treat bag that has a fold over top to show the internal ice pop print, was a must. 

Buy this bundle during Sale-a-Bration and add a pack of Sprinkles and you could choose the Tasty Truck Stamp Set from the Sale-a-Bration offering to go with it. Such a fun FREE set. 




Oooo this makes me want to plan a summertime Birthday Party ... How about you?

Now hop on over to see what Julie has in store for you and enjoy the rest of the hop.
