DIY Luau Birthday Cake!!

In addition to crafting, we love to cook, bake, throw parties... anyway the the glam girls can express themselves, we are there!

Just thought we would share a recent cake baking and decorating venture we decided to try, and to say so ourselves... it turned out pretty good! We made a yummy strawberry filled white cake decorated to look match the luau theme the party was. Since it was for the little man in our house, we had to included a shark in the water! We were inspired by a luau cake we saw http://www.kidsbirthdaycake-s.com/. We also made cupcakes topped off with their own umbrellas.

The party was a hit!


DIY Baby Shower Card

Looking for a quick and and crafty solution for a DIY baby shower card? The glam girls have you covered! All you need are a few items to create your own handmade, one-of-a-kind card.

Here are the supplies I used:
Blank card
Aleene's Glue Stick and/or Tacky Glue (I used both)
Embroidery yarn
Circle stencil
Marking pen
Buttons x 2
Scrap fabric

Trace a circle onto your piece of scrap fabric and cut out.

Trim a about a quarter of the fabric away to make the baby stroller.

Cut a piece of your embroidery yarn and glue to the card making the legs of the stroller.
Adhere the string (legs) and the scrap fabric (stroller) to the front of the card. Then use Tacky glue to adhere the buttons (wheels)

Add your personalized note to the moomy-to-be inside and you are done! Please share pictures of your DIY cards, we'd love to see them!
