Cupcake Toppers

I have a graduation party to go to next weekend and am bring cupcakes, but I want to make them a little extra special. I decided I am going to make some cupcake toppers with my Cricut. I was browsing Etsy this afternoon for a little inspiration and here are some that I found. I can't wait to start working on mine.

Personalized Water Bottle

I love personalized and monogrammed items. Tonight I made this cute water bottle for my sister with her new initials using some vinyl and an aluminum water bottle. If it wasn't personalized for her I would be keeping it for myself.

Wedding Day Frames

I recently got a new Cricut (yeah!!!) and have been making tons of projects with it. My sister is getting married this weekend so I wanted to make some fun wedding day gifts for her so I did some frames.

The "Here Comes the Bride" one is to go on her front door since we will be getting ready at her house and the "Mr & Mrs" frame is for their hotel room door. I'll be putting these in a basket along with some other gifts to give to her the morning of her wedding.

Flowers for Spring

To expand the hair accessories I've been making I've started to learn to make fabric flowers. There are so many great fabric choices out there the possibilities are endless for color combinations and looks. There are so many tutorials online for a lot of different styles. So far I've learned how to do the five petal style using the tutorials on the fabricflower blog

Next I would like to learn to do the chiffon fabric flowers, they are so beautiful and feminine. This one if from Etsy seller Nomsa, her color combination is beautiful.

I've bought the supplies and plan on following this tutorial from ReFabulous . Hopefully I'll have some photos of my own to post soon.

The holidays few by

I can't believe its now February! The holiday season seems like it was a blur to me, and I was so busy I didn't get to make my yarn wreath. I did get all the supplies so I'll just have to do it for next year.

I did have a great winter craft show season! I am so glad how my first year turned out. I learned a lot from it and can't wait to use this year to really step up my business. I have my first show of this year on 2/13 and am really excited. I have a lot of new things coming for this year.

Here is a preview photo of a new style of barrette I've been working on to add to the PetitSweets line
