I love the circus…

Well, actually, I don’t. I love fairs and festivals and carnivals. However, the motif is similar, and I have made a cute little freebie for you that is entitled “Circus Tent”, very simply! It is just an A7 invite so far, in 4 color schemes:

1- Gold + Pink

2 – Lavender + Persimmon

3 – Lime + Turquoise

4 – Scarlet + Sky

I will be churning out some cupcake toppers and other goodies soon… Just click on the pic to download the FREE printable PDF.

Have a great rest of your weekend! Erin

Pinterest Pretties #2 – Cupcakes!

Well, this week, I looked and looked on Pinterest, and found a few cupcakes that I liked, but for some reason I kept seeing the same ones re-pinned all over the place, instead of a lot of variety. So I pinned some more of my own finds. You can see them all on my cupcake Pinboard. I hope that these great cupcakes inspired someone out there to make their own party cupcakes! Here are my great finds:



1. Fields of Cake on Flickr 2. Cake Ink on Flickr

3. Cake Ink’s Flickr 4. Sprinkle Bakes 5. Fields of Cake on Flickr

6. Craft Gossip 7. Martha Stewart 8. Martha Stewart

9. Martha Stewart 10. Martha Stewart as well!

Pinterest Pretties – Party

I have started a new weekly feature, where I share with everyone my favorite pins on Pinterest for the week. For those of you who have never heard of Pinterest, this is how the website describes itself:

“Pinterest is a social catalog service. Think of it as a virtual pinboard — a place where you can post collections of things you love, and “follow” collections created by people with great taste.”

It is great fun to browse and “pin” on Pinterest! Very much a time-suck actually, but if you are looking for inspiration for a design, or a party, then that is the place to go!

This week I have found eight great finds that all have to do with parties, of course. Mostly decorating ideas, party supplies and dessert buffets that I like this time. Take a look…

Pins from Pinterest about parties



1) Adorable birthday crowns for the birthday princess from The Quilted Fish via Becca Sutton

2) Beautiful, and woodsy dessert table from Jenny Cookies via Amy Atlas’s Blog via Becca Sutton as well!

3) Salmon colored stripey paper straws (which I love for their old-fashioned soda shoppe appeal!) from Anthropologie via Leah Dent

4) Fabulously pink decorations and table set up from Martha Stewart Weddings also via Leah Dent

5) Tiffany Blue Polka-Dotted paper cups from Sambellina via Leah Dent

6) Soft and subtle birdy themed dessert table for a baby shower from Tip Junkie via Becca Sutton again! (Clearly, she and I have similar taste…)

7) Ribbon wands perfect for a princess party from Style Me Pretty via Kelly Beall

8.  And I really love these Mason jar drink dispensers from Pottery Barn – but I’m convinced I could find a DIY to get them at a lower price. Via Duet Letterpress.


Well, I hope you go and check out Pinterest, and make your own Pin Boards to bookmark anything your heart desires from around the net. Maybe you’ll even follow some of the Pinners I have referenced above…

I’ll be back tomorrow with a new Party Pack release and Free Party Printable.
