Bowling party and giveaway…


Been getting requests to see the bowling party stuff I mentioned making for Colin's 4th birthday.  It is pretty simple, but here it is anyway. :)  

I used my Silhouette to create everything.  Made it so easy and fast!  I then ran the pieces through my computer to add the text (by taping onto cardstock).  Forgot to get a photo of the favors we made, but they just match these and had some misc party favors in a bag.  

Here are the invites…

Oh!  And a giveaway.  This is for a random previous comment – from jaemom!  You win THIS great new punch from EK Success…


By the way, there are more great punches out from EK.  THIS bad boy is my favorite.  Big, bold scallops.  Delightful…


And THIS one makes the perfect size label for card greetings.  Yummers…


And so does THIS one…


I just love the new generation of punches.  So many good ones.

More giveaways soon.  Have a great mid-week.

    When you tape something to run through your printer for printing does the tape ever get caught on the roller? I had that happen just this week and is it ever a pain to get it unjammed!@
