SOUS: TOAD-ally Awesome Party!

A new Die Cut challenge starts today over at Stuck On U Sketches! I hope you'll join us. Create any type of project you would like using our theme:

Blow out the Candles

*use a die cut that has anything to do with a party

You can link up your project HERE

For my PARTY projects, I decided to go with a FROG theme. I made several different elements using die cuts for this theme.

First of all, we need a PARTY INVITATION!

  • This party invitation was cut using my Cameo and a Lori Whitlock file from the Silhouette store ID# 63014.
  • Papers from Three Bugs in a Rug 6x6 pad "Ellie"
  • Timeless Twine "Strawberry Cupcake"
  • "Important" stamp from My Creative Time's "Tab Notes"
  • "HOP to it" stamp from Cardz TV Stamps "Toad-ally Awesome"
  • The invitation information was printed with the Print ' n Cut feature of the Silhouette software using Lori Whitlock's font "Sugar" ID# 56447

  • Frog stamp from Cardz TV Stamps "Toad-ally Awesome"
Invitation reads:
You are TOAD-ally Invited
HOP to it!

When:  FROG-day
Where: Our PAD
What:  WART's Up Party
Why:  Time's fun when you're having FLIES

B.Y.O.B. (Bring your own Bug Juice)

Next this can be used for Table Setting Place-cards, for a fun game for kids, or for even a birthday message or party message:

  • Silhouette ID# 63011 - from the Lori Whitlock file frog treat box
  • Pieces adhered with foam squares for dimension

And finally, the FROG treat box:

  • Same Silhouette ID# 63011 from Lori Whitlock
  • Pieces adhered with foam squares for dimension 
  • Yellow tulle from stash (I've had this tulle over a year - finally finished up the rest of it at the wedding last weekend)
  • Timeless Twine "Strawberry Cupcake"

It was really fun to make all these froggie party items! I used various inks for shading around different cuts, and I'm tickled pink with how the invitation turned out. 

Thanks for stopping by today to see what I'm up to.
