A Poodle Party

Happy Monday again. I hope your weekend was a good one. It finally cooled off a little here on Saturday so we went to play mini golf. It was fun and nice to be outside without sweltering. The heat has returned now though and we are back to the 90's for most of the week.
This has been the hottest summer on record. I am ready for some cooler weather but definitely not snow.
This was the first time since the Papertrey Bloghops started that I didn't participate. I was just not inspired by this months challenge and I have been busy working on a first birthday cupcake party for a buyer. While waiting to finalize things for the cupcake party I had some time to start a new party theme that has been on my list for awhile. Thankfully all my electronics are working again too this is what I have come up with so far. This is the invitation.
I used this months Sketch For You to try for the layout. The patterned paper and poodle are from this digital paper pack. The balloon was cut with my silhouette then stamped with the you're invited stamp set from the PTI Tiny Tags set. A small pink bow was added to the balloon with a tiny black dot. I  I cut the poodle out with my Silhouette and attached it with foam tape to give it dimension. A tiny party hat complete with a pom pom and scalloped trim was placed on the poodles head to finsih it off.
I also made this Favor Bag to go with it.
Inside you will find this
I have also been wanting to make one of these cupcake purses for awhile now and this was the perfect time to give it a try. I love the way it came out. You can get the svg file here. I used more of the digital paper that I used on the card,then I created a thank you tag with Silhouette Designer Studio and added another poodle to the middle. I think these would make great favors for guests to take with them. They could also hold other small items such as Webkins. I still plan on making a matching banner, hat and cupcake toppers to go with this party theme so be sure to check back because I will be adding more things as I make them. That's all for now. I hope your week ahead is a good one and it is cooler where you are.

So stinkin' cute Terri! Can't wait to see the other pieces you add. I went to look at the purse and it says mini cupcakes. Did you change the pattern? LOVE them.

What a cute set, Terri. The black and white background creates a very sophisticated look and along with the poodles, it reads "French" modern!!

Wow, I LOVE your version of the cupcake purse, hope you don't mind if I share it on the Cre8ive Cutz Facebook page?

Hi Rhonda, there are two versions of the cupcake purse in the Cre8ive Cutz store. This version comes with a holder for four mini cupcakes and the second one (a different purse design) comes with the single holder, but the two are interchangeable. -- Nancy, Cre8ive Cutz
