CSS Party Hop: For My Girlie


Are you a hostess at heart?  Do you love to add special touches to everyday get togethers? The Clear and Simple Stamps designers are celebrating today with our Collection 4 Party Hop.

As the kids get older I find that I'm more prone to spend time adding extra details to everyday events... especially for my sweet girlie who loves things to be "just so".  We decided to have a few of her gal pals over for cupcakes and crafting (and the inevitable mess making). ;)


I used the Mini Tri-Fold 1 die to make a mini invitation.  Rag Doll: Willa adorns the front of our sweet note and I cut a Favor Flag for her to hold as a banner.  Even though I only had 3 of these to make, I wanted to keep it simple.

On the inside I added the celebration details by using the new Party Elements: Celebration set.  For a fun twist, I filled a Clear Candy Bag with confetti.... perfect for 4 year olds. ;)


We will plan to craft and play and have mini cupcakes for a snack.  The girls will go home with a little coloring book and a new package of crayons.  I stamped a few different Rag Dolls onto some die cut tags and tied them together with ribbon.  (Note: This would also be a fun idea to send to a crafty/stamping friend.  They could color, trim, and use on projects.)


These ideas can easily be expanded to make a larger spread or kept simple for a small get together.  Enjoy the CSS Party Hop... be sure to visit all the designers for inspiration and fun new ways to celebrate the everyday!
