{Spotlight Project} Create Custom Party Bulletin Boards with Deepti!

Hello, friends! Deepti here and welcome to another spotlight feature. I don't really have a tutorial for you today but I have some fun party ideas for you. My son Siddharth will soon be turning one... Yay! I know time really flies :) We have his First Birthday Party planned for the end of this month. I have chosen the theme "Winter ONEderland" and being a crafter I had to do all the decorations by myself hahaha. 

I will have a few tables set up and I will be putting up some Bulletin Board kind of thing on each table. I have used an 8"X10" Black cardstock that will fit perfectly in the frames. So let me show you the frames...

For Cake Table

For Party Favors Table

For Siddharth's Special Table

For Gifts Table

Thanks to the sketchy alphabets, I was able to create what I had in my vision. I hope you like these. I have simply white embossed the words and images and the snowflakes are stamped in white ink.

I also have made tags that will be tucked in with all the party favors... I made 40, mass production you see. There will be around 40 kids attending the party :)

For this one I stamped the images and colored the snowman with Prisma Color pencils. For the sentiment, I did some surgery :D

I will share the photos of the whole setup and party afterwards :)

I used several stamp club sets: Sketchy Alphabet, Gone Postal, and Joyful  (for the word Snow on the tag) + Vignette Art Deco Border Builder (for the sentiment on Tag) HousesHouses Extras, Holiday Expressions - Yuletide Cheer and Vignette Christmas Block, CUTplorations Luggage Tag Dies

That finishes my spotlight feature :) I hope you enjoyed it and will give this a try when you have an event planned :) Happy paper crafting!
