Hey everyone! I'm so glad you were able to stop by our Craft Smith Blog today! Exciting things are going on in our office right now. I can't wait to show you all of the fun new products and lines that we have coming out soon! You'll know soon enough but for now I'll just say, get ready! I am so excited for our Craft Smith Christmas to be released at the end of this month! We have lots of stuff coming out at Michaels and you will love it all!
A couple weeks ago, our little Craft Smith Family threw a baby shower for one of our very special team members, Danelle. Danelle is our Design Director and truly a piece of our puzzle that we couldn't live without!
Danelle is expecting her second child, a little boy who will be named Mickell. He will join his big sister and they will become the cutest little family of four. When we were discussing what the theme for our special lunch would be, an interesting idea came up! Danelle's husband is an incredible tattoo artist and a "tattoo" themed shower would be perfect for her! Our ideas started spinning and we were off on a good start!
First, I want to show you how I used our Craft Smith Gold Foil paper as part of our decorations for the special day. This paper pad is one of our "Hot Buy" pads that was released this fall at Michaels. I love how this paper can be mixed and matched with so many different things to create so many different looks. Our theme colors were gold, red and black so this paper got a lot of us!
I was in charge of treats which is very typical for me. ;) My girls know that I love sugar and I will never disappoint! Ha! I found this skeleton cupcake stand at a local store and knew it would be perfect as a centerpiece on the table...after a little sprucing up of course.
Before I put the cardboard stand together, I glued gold foil paper to the base pieces and trimmed around the edges. When I assembled the stand as directed, it ended up so much cuter than the original stand! And for the skull topper, a ribbon bow tie and pacifier was just what he needed to make a statement! I love how you don't have to be a huge crafter to find uses for our paper pads. They really do make any basic thing look a little more special.
Here are a few more photos from our fun day...
Black and red balloons added extra flair to our table.
Sweet gifts that accompanied the theme were fun to give.
Rock candy & skulls for our little "rockstar" baby.
We even made a custom tattoo with Danelle's baby boy's name on them. We printed them on tattoo paper found at the craft store and applied them at the table as we waited for our food.
The Utah Office of Craft Smith all together. We missed our California Office peeps and hope to all be together soon!
