Welcome Stampin' Friends!
May, where did it go? I just got back from our annual family camp trip to Herrick Reservoir near Cascade, Idaho. It was a great time, my oldest daughter competed in her first Archery Competition and got 1st place!!! I hope you had a great memorial day weekend. And, as a military wife and sister I have to say a great big THANK YOU to all of the military families reading this! I know first hand the sacrafice is made by the entire family, so thank you to our soldiers and to the families that stay home and support them!
I am thrilled to share with you the last two projects that are part of the May collection of tutorials at Craft Project Central! First up is an Ornate Top Box and matching card that Kim Score designed.
Kim tells us about her projects here: Do you enjoy wrapping up small gifts in special packages? If so, this is the box for you! The ornate top box paired with the beautiful Twitterpated designer paper is the perfect packaging for that special someone. Adapt the box with other designer papers for great seasonal packaging too! The end of the school year is quickly approaching and what teacher wouldn’t be impressed with a little something presented in this special box with the matching card? Substitute the Well Worn masculine designer paper for male teachers! This project makes for a fun class, club, or camp project!

LASTLY, is the BONUS project of the month. Designed by ME!!! I am in love with my creations this month. I am going to use them for my daughter's American Girl Birthday party in June! It's a Vintage Birthday Party Ensemble.
Vintage and paper crafting are a hot combination right now, so why not incorporate that in to a birthday celebration? This ensemble is a great start for a special girl’s birthday. The birthday crown would make any little girl feel special on her big day. There is also a memories book; the pages fold out, so each party guest can write a special note to the birthday girl. Save a spot in the book to insert a few party pictures as well. And, no birthday party is complete with out party favors. A pinwheel sets this party favor bag apart and would entice anyone to take a peek at the goodies inside. These handmade vintage birthday pieces will give any birthday party that extra special feel that all birthday girls deserve.
