Lalaloopsy update

Just a quick update on what I've done in the past couple of days for the Lalaloopsy birthday party I'm planing for my daughter. It wasn't easy but I've found the time somehow...I drew in Corel Painter Essentials the doll, then I colored it. After with the help of the Silhouette software I made different designs, printed them out, then cut them with my digital cutter Silhouette. It took quite a while, since I haven't used the cutter very much and it showed I lacked experience ( which was obvious around the time I asked the kids to go to the other room so I can curse as much as I like and of course by the full recycling bin with papers). At the end I think I did fine. It was interesting enough to keep me busy anyway.

So, the placement cards are done.

The special "birthday ribbon"  too.

The birthday bags took twice the time, because I had to make two pieces for them - one big image for the package and one small one as a tag with the name of the child.

Did I also mention I did all of the "stitch" work by hand on all of the decorations? Yeah...gimme that crazy mom award!

And last but not least, here are the 4 designs for the birthday cards I made:

The actual image of the Lalaloopsy doll I printed on a sparkling cream colored paper. Unfortunately on my pictures the image looks just grainy but in person the effect is quite cool.

I think the stitching added little bit of a lalaloopsy touch that the cards needed before :-)

Going into lalaloopsy zone again, see you soon!



  1. Given my affection to party planning and organizing, I just lalaloove your work!!!
    And you remind me that my so awaited Silhouette is still in the box which is a shame now that I see once again what can be done with that crafting miracle.
    You did a great job and I am oh so anxious to see the rest of the party bits and bops as well as the pary itself!
    Keep up the super mum spirit!!!


  2. I must admit that although I'm complaining how my little girl chose something that is not easy to find as party favors...I quite enjoy the process of making them. :-) Shhhh, don't tell anyone! ;-) Thank you for your kind words!
