Adding the final touches before Santa Claus arrives (8 hours until Santa departs). Click on the Black & White image (on Jazzyscreation.com/blog) to download by right clicking on your mouse/pad and ‘saving’ the image to your computer. You can print-out the coloring page, ‘Letter from Santa’,and leave the letter after Santa has had the cookies and milk. And/or use the boot as a cutout template to leave Santa’s footprints.

We wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Thank you for sticking by me bloggers, crafters, followers, and friends in this (Jazzy’s Creation & Design) journey. Looking forward to the New Year.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

[Original Post: https://www.jazzyscreation.com/blog ]

My dearest friend for over 10 years, who has been an inspirational role model, an amazing mother figure, and thee best of friends you can have, hosted one of my 3 baby showers

Q: Why 3 Baby Showers?
A: My husband’s mother hosted a nautical theme at her house which was further out for my Portland friends, then I got an Office Baby Shower which had a bee theme, and then this one..

Baby, It’s Cold Outside fits my “polar theme nursery room” so I was able to reuse lots of the handmade decorations Debbie made.  Oh and what a beautiful baby shower! The food and decorations were priceless. We had it all, from a hot chocolate bar station to an Igloo background for pictures. Take a look below of a some of the pictures (for more pictures visit flickr.com).


Debbie handmade it all:
 To explain all her DIY project would take too many pages to write down, but take a look at the pictures on flickr and stay tune as we will post some DIY videos and articles of these projects soon.


Project Consist of:
Penguin & Bear Invitation
Igloo Photo Backdrop
Christmas Felt Ornament Favors
Felt Stuffed animal center pieces for the baby
Penguin Paper Cupcake Toppers
Hot Chocolate Bar Jars
Baby Burp Cloths/Diapers
Sign In Baby Book
Baby Fabric Banners and more.

We also had Kashrootz cater the baby shower. The food looked amazing and of course very delicious. 

Letters And Dust chalk art helped put the room together: She made a welcome chalk board, 7 chalk board centerpieces, a food menu board, photo booth, and even free-style the background dessert lettering. Visit Letters & Dust website to attend classes on how to make these amazing chalk boards. 

All of these 3 artist deserve their own blog post. I got over 200 great pictures of the event that it’s worth taking a look—> here. For more information leave me a comment or just wait for the individual blog post and for pictures visit flickr.com).

Thank you family & friends who attended the baby shower and helped with the setting up/cleaning up. I know that our little one is very loved and we appreciate everything you have done to make us feel very special.

Jax’s 3rd Birthday Pawty

(Original Post: https://www.jazzyscreation.com/blog)

Today, we celebrated Jax’s 3rd birthday pawty. I can’t believe its been 3 years already. I got up early this morning to bake Jax a Peanut Butter Birthday Cake with bacon sprinkles and cheese frosting. And with the same cake batter I had enough for peanut butter cookies.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 
Use: 
-1 cup of white wheat flour
-1 tsp of baking soda
-1/4 cup of peanut butter
-1/4 cup of vegetable oil
-1 egg
Take out in 25-30 minutes

Once, I finished frosting the cake I made a cake topper, some birthday party hats, and paper fans to decorate the table.

[FALL]ing in Love Wedding

Here are couple of ideas on how to save money when you do it yourself:

Coloring Program: For J+D’s Wedding we decided that the wedding program would serve as the coloring book for kids. So making the clipart as line art and using black and white–> the kiddos can color the program. Plus it’s very informative for the adults.

Sparkler & Little flags: Do-it-yourself and print on cardstock paper to create simple decorative paper goods.  Cut to the shape you like and with a hole-punch make inserts for the sparklers or sticks (for flags).

Chalk Signs: Make your own chalk signs to save on signage plus it help direct your guest to activities.

Spray-Painted Signs: with cutout stencils and spray paint–> you can make these lovely table numbers. Place the cutout number on top of the small canvas (available at Michael’s Craft Store) and spray paint right to left (be more heavy on the left side by leaving the spray-paint longer in that area).

Happy 1st Birthday Carter

I have seen this little girl grow up so fast…She has a big hearted family that loves her so much and we only want what is best for her. Her Aunt Michele with her kids put together Carter’s first birthday party. And invited us to her home. They had the whole house decorated with pink and purple streamers, butterflies all around, and had a lovely table/high chair decorated.

I wanted to make sure I had a “Turning One” picture so I had Max, Carter’s Uncle & my husband, to help me set up a photoshoot. I made paper banners, and cutout butterflies for the backdrop. And since I wasn’t sure what she would be wearing I quickly made a tutu with butterflies gems and cutout a paper crown for her to wear.

It definitely took everyone to get her to sit-still and look pretty. Thank you for sharing this moment with us. Take a look at at Flickr for more process pictures.

Working on Valentines Gifts

Starting on my valentines gift…
I’m creating mini hearts and unicorns piñatas for the little ones. Stuffing them with stickers, toys, pin buttons and more. The heart piñatas have two openings 1) that can be broken in half or 2) the right corner lid opening.

I’ve also been making cupcake toppers:

  1. Lay the paper down on its decorative side, 2″x7”
  2. Fold accordion style:
    getdocument-aspx
  3. Glue each end to each other to create a circular fan.
  4. Punch a heart and glue in the center.
