MakeItMondayButton-JulyWelcome to another Make It Monday! I’m back this week with a cute Hot Air Balloon party theme! I was inspired by the adorable Top Dog Dies and knew exactly what I wanted to make…

It’s truly mind-blowing how fast time flies. I vividly remember our first days at home with our daughters, and now they’re 8 and 6 years old! It’s amazing how quickly they’re growing!

The Hot Air Balloon dies are super cute and the details are gorgeous. The set includes two sizes of balloons, one basket, and three clouds. Perfect for great variations, like the cupcake toppers I made, incorporating the various clouds and pop dots for dimension!

I’m sure any kid would love to get one of these gorgeous toppers atop they’re scrumptious party treat! I’m out of lollipop sticks, but if I was making these for a party, I would definitely add some of the die cuts to lollipop sticks and some to bamboo forks in order to add a nice height variation on the tablescape. That would be darling for obvious reasons!

In addition to the cupcake toppers, of course I had to make a banner to highlight the theme, “GROWING UP UP UP” – fun, right?! I think so 🙂

PS. You know I love a fun crafting challenge, and luckily the theme at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge is Get In Shape – anything non-square or rectangle shaped. Hot air balloons certainly fit the bill!

Are you enjoying the series? Our circle has shared great ideas and inspiration covering scrapbooking, card making, mixed media, digital scrapbooking, templates, paper crafting, party supplies, and so much more! Speaking of party supplies, I just created this watercolor Garden Party printable kit, inspired by my 8 yr old when she was wearing an outfit with these colors! I love when that happens 🙂

I decided to make a watercolor inspired set of party goodies that could work for a spring or summer birthday party but not just for kids. I really was envisioning this being ideal for birthday girls and women with class, elegance, style and great attention to detail! It just screams elegant garden party to me! Okay, maybe not “screams”, maybe more like a ladylike squeal-of-delight 🙂

My Etsy store is mostly stocked with physical items that get shipped to customers (lots of banners) and I love sharing my creations with customers throughout the US. But I wanted to created printable files that can be used to make a party banner, cupcake toppers, water bottle wrappers and straw flags anywhere in the world! How adorable are all of these?! The only tools you need is a printer, scissors and glue! But I love that anyone can feel like a maker and crafter using printables – it’s the best of both worlds, and super creative and easy!
