Hybrid Team Member Jolynn (aka Pixelista) crafted up the most adorable circus themed invitation and concession ticket for her son’s birthday party. Check out the tutorial below outlining how she put this masterpiece together.

Ladies & Gentlemen…step right up, be the first to see {Insert child’s name here} turn {insert age here} for the ONE & ONLY TIME!!

What person, no matter your age doesn’t enjoy a good circus with all its wonder and amazement? Utilizing a variety of components from several of Miss Mint’s super digital scrapbooking kits and commercial vectors by Tay Silver I was able to capture the magic of the circus into a fun vintage flare birthday invitation and complimentary concessions voucher.

1 supplies circus invite1

Supplies Used:

Creating the Digital File:

INVITATION: Set your canvas to 8.5” long x 4” wide. Take the digital vectors from the CIRCUS – commercial vector art and modify them with your colour choices in your scrapbooking software.  Using the marquee tool I copied and recoloured the buntings so they would alternate red & blue with the yellow string. Then I layered and applied shadows to them over top of the other frames and borders form the assorted kits as shown in the photo. I recoloured  most of the papers and elements to maintain continuity throughout the invitation and concessions voucher through applications in my software. A variety of free available were paired to compliment the circus feel to communicate the necessary information about the party “WHO, WHAT, WHERE & WHEN”.

Font suggestions:

Fonts
Champaigne & Limousines |  Budmo Jiggler |  Circus |  Honey Script

The pennant for highlighting “CIRQUE DU ETHAN” was made using standard shapes within my scrapbooking software and coloured to accent the event, then a shadow was applied to this also. A duplicate was copied and set to the side of the invitation to use for layering purposes later (as was the elephant vector).

CONCESSIONS VOUCHER:  The invitation once completed was copied and rotated it 90 degrees, elements were stretched, removed, cropped and relocated to allow for customization for the free concessions offers.  Then a “validation” stamp and code were put on for authenticity.  (I haven’t a clue if this is even possible or just as an addition to the invite to let the folks know they will be treated to some goodies at the circus!)

I printed my files once satisfied with their final appearances at high quality. I placed 1 invite & concessions voucher plus the pop up elements per sheet of textured white card stock but you could use ivory or kraft to add a more vintage feel.

Once printed and cut, assembly is pretty simple. I added foam adhesives to the areas that I wanted pop-up and accentuate. (I did the “CIRQUE DU ETHAN” banner & the Elephant plus the round star brad).

Then I added a small dab of glue to the location for the googly eyes and apply the eye.

Refurbished Vinyl Decal Chair
By: Tanya Alley

One of my favourite things to do is take something old and make it new again. Refurbishing old finds is a great way to keep your craft costs down while creating custom art, furniture, decor or crafts. A friend of mine bought this little chair for her granddaughter and asked if I could do something with it. It was originally (when she got it) red but she wanted something soft and feminine to match her granddaughter’s bedroom. I was happy to help. I painted it this beautiful shade of purple and applied vinyl die cuts and now she has a great custom chair.

Here’s how I did it.

Supplies used:

Step 1: First I sanded the chair to remove all inconsistencies.

Step 2: After sanding, I wiped the chair an old rag to remove the dust from sanding.

Step 3: The chair is ready to spray paint.

Step 4: While waiting on paint to dry. I started on making the vinyl butterflies and the name “Abbi” by using my Silhouette Studio program with my Silhouette Cameo. First I imported the butterfly vector into Silhouette  studio. Choose the SVG file if you have the Designer Edition software, otherwise use the trace function using the JPG file format as shown below. Drag to the desired size.

Step 5: Next step is to Select trace area, highlight the whole butterfly and then trace outer edge.

Step 6: Now I picked the cut style button. It is the pair of scissors at the top right. Next,  I made sure the cute edge is selected on the right hand of the screen. You will see a red outline around the image. This is how you know this is what will be cut.

Step 7: Now we are ready to cut. Pick the pencil button at the top of the screen. The cut settings will pop up. I made sure that I had the appropriate media picked and that I have the mat selected. Now you are ready to cut.

Step 8: Load mat and cut.

Step 9: After the vinyl is cut, it’s time to remove the excess vinyl and “weed” out the small pieces.

You will do the same for the name as you do for the butterfly.

Step 10: Now it’s time to add the transfer tape. Make sure to smooth out with a scraper. You can use a old credit card if you don’t have a scraper.

Step 11: Transfer to chair. Smooth out with scraper and carefully remove the transfer tape.

Step 12: Repeat the steps 4-11 for the name that is on the back of the chair.

Final Step: Spray chair with a coat or two of  sealer.  I used Rust-O-Leum American Accents. I made sure that the coat was completely dry before applying another coat.

I know this sounds like a lot of steps, but it really doesn’t take that long.  My biggest issue was trying to spray paint in the wind.  My friends granddaughter absolutely loved this chair.  She takes it with her everywhere she goes. I hope this inspires you to refurbish something and make it beautiful!

Happy Crafting,
Tanya
