DHD Blog Hop- Inspiration and a free printable!

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to Sassy Sanctuary!  I'm super excited to be a part of today's blog/facebook hop and to share a little scrap-booking inspiration using this months oh so cute house party kits!

This months color scheme is titled "romantic"  and it is a beautiful, soft pallet perfect for your little girls or lovey dovey photos of you and your loved ones!

You can check out and download the kits HERE.
The house party kits will be on sale, 30% off, through May 5th.

So... what do you do with these lovely kits?  Well... make beautiful scrapbook layouts of course!

This first layout is of my sweet little Ava.  These are the pictures from her Easter photo shoot.  I just love these pictures and love how the kits colors really complement them and leave a very pretty, soft overall feel.

And with the romantic theme in mind I went and found a few photos of me and my honey.  These are pictures of us at our wedding, one from a few years ago, and one from sometime in between.  Its fun to see how we have grown and aged together.     The romantic kits have everything you need to tell your own love story.  Aww!

(Come visit my DHD gallery to see exactly which kits I used for these layouts.)

BUT, I've said it before, as much as I love digital scrapping, my true love is digital printables!  So with Mother's Day just around the corner (at least in the US)  I thought I'd use the house party kits to make you guys a free printable.  Mothers Day Cupcake Toppers!

Aren't they sweet!  What a perfect addition to any Mother's Day Celebration!  (And what Momma doesn't like cupcakes?!?  I know this one does!!)

Here is your printable.  Just save the image (click to get the full image and not the thumbnail) and print it as a "full page." I like to use card-stock to give them some weight.


They are created to be used with a 2" punch.  I have both a circle and a flower punch and love them for cupcake toppers.  The punches I use are EK punches.  You can get them at Joann's (be sure to print a 40% off coupon!) and they are great because they have a deep reach and you can see what you are punching!

Then all you have to do is tape a tooth pick to the back and stick them in your cupcakes!

And if you REALLY want to wow your mom, you can make matching wrappers too!  All you do is pick out some matching papers from the kits and print them.  Then print the template and cut out the shapes.  The template is going to make them a little on the big side, so if you have smaller cupcakes (like I did) you may have to trim them down a bit.  I ended up taking about 1/4" from all sides to get mine to fit right.  Just take a little off at a time until you get them to fit your particular cupcake.

They are basically little sleeves that your cupcakes sit in.  But they sure make the cupcakes look special!

Here is the template for them.  Once again, click to view the full image, save it, and print it "full page."

And HERE is the link again so you can go pick up a paper pack to match the toppers.

I hope you'll enjoy this month's house party kits and create some lovely scrapbook layouts and make your Momma a special Mother's Day cupcake!

And if you do craft with us using the house party kits we want to see!  Please post your cards, layouts, and crafts in our color swatch challenge so we all can share in the inspiration!

If you are new to digital scrapbooking and would like to give it a try, I use and LOVE the software Scrapbook Max.  You can download a free trial and see what you think.  Its super easy to use and I know you will love it!  But I have to warn you, once you go ditgital, you'll never go back!!!
