Party Time: Birthday

My crafty friends and I try to get together once a week to craft. This week we decided to enter the Paper Crafts Connection Party Ensemble Contest. We gathered up all of our Clear & Simple Stamps supplies and made 3 projects to coordinate with a card I made for a First Birthday Party.
 We started with a banner using the new Banners dies from CSS newest collection.
Isn't it darling with the big giraffe die cut and stars? The die is from the Baby Shower Large die set. And the stars are from the new background builder set called Stars Plus. The little banner flag and sentiment are from a retired CSS set that I still love!
Our second little project was the decorated straws. I used the new Labels 3 die and you'll find this coordinating stamp in the Baby Shower stamp set.
Our final project is this adorable gift log. I remember needing one of these at my kiddos first birthday party. I even need one now.... for all year long and especially around the holidays. A spot just for writing 'who sent what' is so handy when you finally make time to make and send those handmade thank you cards!
We used the label die in the Mini Tri-fold 1 die set. {I absolutely love this shape!} Then, using the scripty background stamp in Quotes II that was released in Collection 1 at CSS. I like that vintage look. Each little banner flag that peeks out from under the label has the same treatment. We topped the label with this cutie giraffe, tag and button with twine. Such a cute combo of embellies.

And here was our inspiration! You can find the details for this 1st Birthday card in this post.
Was that fun or what?

Come back FRIDAY for another party ensemble!!!

Thanks for stopping by,
