Sad news… my nephew, Dax, is turning 1 already! He is growing up way too fast! It seems like yesterday that I just posted the invitations and pictures from his baby shower 🙁 The good news, however, is that I have a new .svg for you! Instead of doing the typical superhero theme parties like superman, batman, spiderman, and yada yada yada… make it custom to better suit your little one! Here is what I came up with for my not so little peanut nephew:
Soooo much fun! The cool thing is, like most of my invites, is you can personalize them. Change the colors, change the letter, or superhero icon to what you want. These ones were super easy to make too. Just follow the directions below:
1) Click her for the
2) Cut everything out in the colors and paper that you want!
3) Use a scoring blade to make a crease in the cape where it needs to fold. Then use glue on the top part, fold it over, and press it onto the shirt.
4) Glue the other pieces, except for the letter. Use pop-up dots to give it some more dimension.
5) Print out event info. and glue it to the inside of the cape.
6) If you are making these invites for a girl superhero, add some glitter or bling 🙂
7) Enjoy your superhero party!

Happy 1st Birthday to the cutest little superhero ever, Dax Hagen Rucker! I love you so much- even when you are covered in cake!
Hello fellow scrapbookers and paper craft artists! So, sometimes it is really annoying to go into a nearby Michaels or Joanns craft store, only to find the exact same thing you always find there. To me, it seems like their selections are rarely updated. So here is my solution- search your google maps for a local scrapbooking store. This is precisely what I did the other day and stumbled upon heaven- Scrap N’ Yap in Monrovia, CA.
I love to support local businesses and I am a huge fan of this particular store for many reasons:
1) It’s pretty! When you step inside, the store is colorful and has an antiquish look to it. It is clean and organized. And so spacious! There is room to turn around without knocking things over with your purse. That, my friends, is important! The whole feel of it relaxing and not overwhelming like some craft shops I have been in.
2) It’s full of unfamiliar things! As I mentioned before, other chain craft stores I have shopped at always have the same thing! I have seen the same paper and embellishments sitting there for years now. There were definitely new and unique items at Scrap N’ Yap, which made me all giddy when I was there 🙂
3) It’s ran by awesome people! Nothing is more important to me when I am shopping than customer service, and people… this place had outstanding customer service. The lady working, Jen, was super friendly, offered assistance, and gave suggestions. I truly felt like I was a valuable customer to her and it was only my first time in the store! I later liked Scrap N’ Yaps Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Scrap.N.Yap) to let them know how much I enjoyed their store and 2 other Scrap N’ Yap ladies responded to my message! Incredible!
4) It’s fun for everyone! They offer a lot of classes there so you can constantly learn something new, or maybe teach others some stuff you know! I have not attended a class there yet, but they sound lovely! I have actually always been too intimidated to take any sort of paper craft class, but Jen almost has me convinced 😉
I really hope some of you who live in the area will take the time to check this place out. It truly is a delightful place, full of delightful people. Get a sneak peek of what Scrap N’ Yap has to offer by visiting their website: http://scrap-n-yap.com/
