May Arts + Lawn Fawn Week = Day 2

It's May Arts + Lawn Fawn week = Day 2! We are teaming up with May Arts for the 2nd day to bring you some fun projects! So after you check out this post, make sure to head on over to the May Arts blog! Oh, and there just may be a giveaway at the end of this post, too! :)

Tiffany created an upcycled boy baby shower center piece using some trendy May Arts twill paired with stamped bottle wrappers using Teeny Tiny Backdrops. I love how she used her electric die-cutting machine to make the 3-D clouds and rocket embellishments! It's amazing what you can do with old soda bottles!

Chari's card is so lovely with her use of the feminine lace and rosette ribbons! I especially love her twill leaves! Note how she only used half the butterfly image from Flutter By to give the illusion of a flying butterfly?! AMAZING! 

Now, for the giveaway! We are giving away a HUGE spool of May Arts ribbon of you choice every day to one lucky commenter!

With Summer's arrival, are you helping to make any special party decorations, invitations, or favors!? I would love to hear what you're making!

Don't forget to visit the May Arts Blog as well! They have a giveaway and some AWESOME inspiration there too :)

Have an amazing day,

  13. What a lovely projects again! I just love and enjoy to see what ideas other people come up with!
    Last month my daughter had a Princess theme birthday party and I dressed up all the tables, made crowns for the chairs, a magic wand for my daughter and suprise bags for the kids at school.
    For now I'm trying to think about gifts for the teachers for the end of the schoolyear. So far I'm thinking about special gift-bags and maybe a small canvas with some special words for each of them.
    I saw some extremely small canvas in de stores that I want to use for it.

  56. Very nice job on those projects!

    My latest project was just finished yesterday. I made 13 discs beginning with "just born" to 12 months (using Lawn Fawn stamps) and attached them with ribbons. We're hanging them up on the wall and displaying a picture of my granddaughter for each month of her first year! Her birthday is a week from today.

  66. hi!
    for my summer decorations I take some cans (for example Coke cans)and I draw some lines vertically from the top to the bottom (leaving 1 cm from the edges) all along the circumference (1 cm distance from one to the nex one).
    Then i cut along them. I push and turn a little the top of the can to the bottom. I paint them and I put inside the can a tea light candle and so I create something like a "lunar light".

    ReplyDelete

  72. Such sweet projects!! As for me, I am "trying" to organize my photos AND get them printed and developed to actually get to begin scrapbooking. I am so far behind!! Having 3 cameras and 2 computers, makes it so slow and tedious! My goal is to start from the last month and work backwards. LOL! Not so much thinking that I will get caught up but it will be fun!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Nothing for me. We're not big party people.

  75. Super cute projects. The only decorations planned will be for my sons' combined birthday parties - Legos, Star Wars, Hot Wheels - any combo of those 3 depending on their mood!

    ReplyDelete
  76. My birthday is near the end of the month, so I'm going to make invitations for it. I could just call, text, email, or facebook my friends to invite them, but this is a chance for me to papercraft, so I can't resist doing so! :D
