IT'S MY PARTY BLOG HOP and USTREAM

~ WELCOME EVERYBODY ~

This is gonna be a HUGE PARTY and YOU'RE INVITED !

First off... I'm so excited to HOST and KICK OFF this FUN BLOG HOP with you ! 
A big MU-AH and THANK YOU goes out to ALL the sweet and wonderfully talented gals
who are joining me today ! I feel so blessed to have such great crafty friends (((HUGS)))

Today's hop theme is all about IDEAS FOR YOUR NEXT PARTY !
I think throwing a great party is an art form and here you will find super creative ideas to help make your next party a HIT !


SO without further ADU...let me share TWO PROJECTS I prepared for you today !
 Project #1 : The Invitation
 Almost all parties should begin with a great invitation! Not only will it tell important info, as to the where and when,  but it should also set the mood for your party and allow your guest to get excited about the event you have planned for them! If you are successful with your invite, then your guests will REALLY look forward to attending!  Keep the invite simple, since you will make multiples, one for every guest you invite, but don't skimp on the expressiveness ! Your invite should tell the story of what your party will be like...is there a theme? will there be food or refreshments? is the dress causal or dressy? But most of all , if your guests feel you have put a lot of thought and effort into your invitation, then they will know you WILL put a lot of effort into making sure you they have a GOOD TIME ! GREAT INVITES = GREAT PARTIES ! 
Here's a sample invitation for a girls night out theme ! Wanna come ???

oops, just realized I miss spelled "regrets" hehe
NEXT...here's a fun GARLAND you can make it NO TIME FLAT to help things look festive, fun and colorful! Simple cut out 3 to 5 different shapes using double siding patterned paper. Size them up  @ 3 to 4 inches each. Use your CRICUT on the "auto fill" feature to cut multiples. Then use colorful paper clips to link them together alternating the shapes and colors. WHA-LA...festive GARLAND for your party !
