My Favorite Things – 2012 Part 2

Happy New Year’s Eve!  Do you have plans to usher out 2012?  We will be hosting the 2nd Annual Wall Family Dance Party.  Last year, the kids had a blast dancing around and being goofy.  I think we played Party Rock Anthem and I’m Sexy and I know It far too many times to count!  LOL!

I’m finishing up my favorites for 2012, starting with July.

First, I have the thank you cards and upcycled tin can bouquets.  They were so pretty and so well received.  

Next up was Carter’s 5th birthday party invitation.  He had a super hero themed party and it was such a great success and hit among the kids.

Lastly, I have the Passport Stamp Bingo game cards I made for a preschool fundraiser.  This was a crazy amount of coloring, but so cute.


I loved the pop of the brilliant blue and red of this card, plus the fun school themed papers.  A sweet back to school card.


My favorite in September was my mini-makeover in my craft room.  My fabulous husband made me this fabulous desk.


I was so excited to participate in a handful of the Hope You Can Cling To challenges over at Splitcoast.  This was one of my favorite cards — the scallop rainbow makes me smile.

I loved the stunning-ness of this black & white card.  It was perfect for an anniversary card.

This was another card for the HYCCT challenges.  It called for a chicken image and this French hen image from Bugaboo was perfect.


December was a quiet month, but this was by far my favorite.  The snowman candy jars were just adorable and turned out perfectly for teacher gifts.  Definitely a successful Pinterest find!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you enjoyed my end of year wrap up!  I wish you a safe, happy & healthy New Year!


Passport Stamp Bingo

Hi all!  It’s about time I share this big project I made back in May.  The preschool my kids attended was holding a carnival fundraiser, along with silent auction baskets.  My son’s class was supposed to do a theme of around the world for their basket.

I created a table in Word and printed off “BINGO” blanks.  There are 15 squares on each card.  I used many of the Travel Sticker Stamps, as well as Tourist Riley, Route 66 Riley, Sitting on Trunk Riley, and Map Riley. There are 5 cards in the set, so I had quite a bit of coloring to do!  After coloring, I laminated them for long term use.

Of course, without having the traditional letter and numbers to call the game, I made up little cards to draw.

These were also laminated and on the back side, I put a little circle with “Passport Stamp Bingo” on each.  I have yet another set of these to make as my kids want their own set!  Maybe a good project for the winter!
