I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Birthday Princess Placemat

Here is todays second post...A placemat I made for my niece's upcoming 2nd birthday Party. I made teh mat 6 x 12 as it is going on her high chair.

I used twinkle toes for the "Princess" as well as her crown. I tried to make her as thin as possible as I am laminating this and too many layers buckles up the laminate.

I did add some tulle for a skirt to make her fanicier. Hopefully that will lameniate ok. All papers used were scraps from my stash. Probably Bazzil or Recollections cardstock. The patterned background paper, I think came from a Target dollar bin pack from last year or so.

Birthday Princess was cut from Birthday Cakes.

For the sparkle I used Turquoise Stickles. Let me say, that I have a love-hate relationship with my Stickles. Today it seemed like I had to stick a pin in the bottle after every little spot I put on the letters. I was cursing the stickles when I was done. LOL

I store them upside down, as it is...If anyone has a secret to keeping your Stickles from clogging up...please let me know!

Thanks and have a Great and Crafty Day!
