We continue our birthday celebrations with a gold theme. With birthdays there are so many things to make and create that will make a celebration really special. As part of the celebrations we want a menu to showcase a selection of delicious dishes. This simple concept can also be used for an invitation and any other stationery you are creating for your celebrations. Step 1 Print a simple design onto textured white cardstock. I changed my design from black to a golden yellow. Fold the card in half, then use a small paint brush and Venus Gold All Purpose Ink to splatter some small gold dots onto the front of the card. Last time I shared my straw holder, and this week we continue with the same simple concept but this time for a drinking bottle. Step 2 Cut the top portion of a gold balloon off. Step 3 Stretch the bottom part using your hands and pull it over the bottom of small drinking bottles and let go. The balloon stretches over the bottom portion of the bottle creating a beautiful gold dipped look. Step 4 Die-cut some numbers ‘10’ out of gold foil paper using your Cuttlebug and the number dies from Kaisercraft. Step 5 Adhere the sticker numbers to the bottom portion of the bottle. Step 6 Wrap a strip of 6mm double sided tape along the top edge of the bottle. Remove the backing off of the tape and sprinkle with gold glitter. Shake off the excess and return to the container. Display some beautiful gold straws in the bottles and then pour the drinks once your guests arrive. Adhere one of your gold star birthday candles to the front of your card using Tombow glue or a hot glue gun. Adhere the die-cut ‘10’ sticker to the left of the candle to further add to the theme. Step 7 Punch 5mm dots out of your gold foil sticker sheet and sprinkle it around for confetti on your table. I also adhered some of these punched confetti’s to the front of my menu card. And so I will keep on creating gold elements for this very, very special birthday celebrations. Visit our blog for more tutorials like this! http://www.thewholesaler.biz/blog/

Oh Baby Girls – DIY Baby Shower Ideas For Little Princesses Part 1

When it comes to pink and little girls, who doesn’t love a good dose of cute? This week we are sharing some ideas of how to personalise ideas for a perfectly pink baby shower fit for any little princess. Not all baby showers have to be before baby arrives and sometimes it’s fun to celebrate the little one once she is already here. Instead of anticipating her arrival we are celebrating her life with a beautiful tea setting.

Little Birdie Floral Inspiration Layout

When inspiration hits it comes from obvious places, but sometimes also the not so obvious places. For this layout I was inspired to use a variety of blue, grey and brown flowers to soften up the many straight lines. But if you thought my only inspiration was the pretty NEW Little Birdie blooms from The Wholesaler you are wrong. My layout inspiration started with a large floral stamp used for my background.

Oh Lady ….World class South African paper

There’s a new paper Lady in town and we are simply giddy about her. It’s the new Lady Pattern Paper range. I am always a bit reserved when it comes to local, yes I know I am a paper snob and I like quality. So when I first got this range of new paper I was careful of judging this book by its paper. And all I can say is I am pleasantly surprised.

Chalk Watercolours Using Memento Luxe Ink Pads

I am an inky girl at heart – and I say that lightly because I don’t throw every ink I own onto a sheet of paper and call it good. I use my inks to carefully create accents and backgrounds and elements...

Inky Business

As a young crafter I always loved working with inks paints and other weird materials. I love the artistic, anything can happen look inks can give a project. It’s hard to know how ink will re-act initially when you start working with a new product – and for that reason I love experimenting with it. There are many different kinds of inks available on the market today...

Dressed to Impress

There comes a time in every little girl’s life when they play dress up. Sometimes the period lasts well into adulthood. And boy does BasicGrey have the perfect range of scrapbooking papers to compliment a dress up theme. For this layout I used the beautiful Lucille and Serenade ranges together for this layout. I love how the colours and patterns complement each other.
