New To Shop | Honey Bee

May
17

What a day, what a day! I’ve been busy as a bee and sweet as honey to the neighbouring roofers who have taken over my driveway. The pounding and nail guns have been a bit distracting, but I have finally got my new collection in the shop! Oh yes, another new collection this week, I have been busy as a bee you see!

Pun totally intended. Buzz. buzz.

I am happy to have my new Honey Bee DIY Printable Party Collection in my Etsy shop!

This is another design I have been wanting to do for a while. Who doesn’t love a cute litte bee and honeycomb? I love me a cute bee and I really wanted to create a collection that was sweet and delicate.

Something that could work for a child’s party or a shower. Hosting a “WHAT WILL IT BEE?”  gender reveal party? Or maybe a “IT WAS MEANT TO BEE!” bridal shower? A little gathering for beekeeper’s perchance?

And I really just needed an excuse to eat an entire package of honeycomb candy. Yes, yes I ate all of it.

The Honey Bee DIY Printable Party Collection comes with all your favorites. The Honey Bee Invitations are sold separately and completely customizable to match your bee theme.

Buzz on over to my shop to check out the new Honey Bee Collection!

Seriously loving these favor tags so much I want to host a bee themed party.  Are you throwing a bee themed party this spring?

Pirate Party Cupcakes

Apr

I just found the cutest Neverland-Inspired Pirate Party on Hostess with the Mostess. What caught my eye about this party were these super cute pirate ship cupcakes.

When I designed the Mast Style Party Flags for my new Pirate Party DIY Printable Party last month, there were two ways I envisioned using the mast style flags. I really wanted to use them as masts for a fleet of paper boats, like this one:

And as cupcake flags to turn a tray of cupcakes into a fleet of pirate ships! I am totally wishing my nephews were young enough to still want a pirate party.

Are you planning a pirate party? Want to create a fleet of pirate ships using paper boats or cupcakes? Grab my set of Pirate Party Flags in my Etsy shop for quick and easy pirate ship building!

I am getting super excited about Halloween this year! Gathering costume ideas for my girls, preliminary planning for creepy food week (which I really must focus on as it’s only a week and a half away – eeek!) and planning new Halloween decor to add to our classic favorites. In the midst of all this brainstorming, an idea hit for me a new Halloween printable that is a little less girlie (have I told you today how much I love my girlie ghost?) and a little more creepy, you know, for the boys. It is fang-tastically cute and it’s hitting my Etsy shop today!

This one is all about the vampires and bats!

It all starts with an invitation to a fang-tastic Halloween party!

Hey, come on over for a bite!

A party full of bite sized sweets…

creepy treats…

and once bitten cupcakes.

I vant to suck your blood!

And of course there are party staples like bottle wrappers and party circles for decorating cupcakes…

and favors full of creepy toys and candy!

I wanted something creepier and detail oriented to decorate the table and windows, so instead of a traditional banner I opted for a bunting of bats and a couple of bat mobiles!  Ha ha ha.

This collection includes bats in small, medium and large so you can be batty and make your own bat mobile and bunting.

The Fang-tastic DIY Printable Party Collection is now in my Etsy shop!

I cannot wait for the weekend! Going to see Bryan Ferry this Saturday, seriously jumping up and down I’m so excited!!! AND it’s Thanksgiving weekend in Canada which means turkey and homemade pumpkin pie. Lucky us, we get to enjoy two Thanksgiving dinners; one with my husband’s family and then one at home on Monday. So eager to cook that bird!

What I’m also excited about today is my new printable party for Thanksgiving is ready today (woot!) and I’m giving a few sets away to some fabulous ladies! Late last week I put out a call to all my readers and friends (all of you!) on Facebook asking, what are your favorite Thanksgiving dishes? I found that sweet potato pie/casserole, as long as it had marshmallows was the winner above all when it came to Thanksgiving faves. But you told me all about your favorite dishes and had some wonderful stories to share about them as well, so thank you. Thank you for sharing your stories and your favorite dishes, it introduced me to some new yummy dishes to try, but most of all it just warms my cockles that you are here, conversing and sharing with me. Thank you.

So, I was asking for your favorite dishes so I could pre-fill the food labels in my new Thanksgiving collection with your favorite foods, so all you ahve to do is literally, print, cut and decorate! Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy. And part of my deal was if you share, and I pick your item to be one of the 12 (which actually ended up being 16), you would receive the Giving Thanks printable with my gratitude for participating and helping me create this collection!

I ended up pre-filling 16 food labels, really I just couldn’t stop. I hope we’ve got you covered with your favorites! They are:

Buttery Whipped Mashed Potatoes
Perfect Pumpkin Pie
Mouthwatering Roasted Turkey
Sweet Potato Casserole w/Marshmallows
Maple Glazed Carrots
Homemade Cranberry Jelly
Brown Sugar Glazed Ham
Maple Sugar Turnip Mash
Tasty Green Bean Casserole
Savoury Herb Stuffing
Carmelized Candied Yams
Mama’s Brown Sugar Apple Pie
Roasted Root Vegetables
Sweet Potato Pie
Super Sweet Corn Off The Cob
Fresh Pressed Apple Cider

Does that cover everything? Heck, I’ll even throw in a sheet of blank tent cards just in case you need them!

So I’m very happy to announce that Kristine, Emma, Nicole, Shannon and Melissa, you all get a complimentary copy of the Giving Thanks DIY Printable Party for your Thanksgiving this year! Please contact me at tracey (@) welovecraftytracey (dot) com, to let me know which email addy you would like me to send it to.

If you didn’t get a chance to tell me your favorite Thanksigiving dish, well by all means, tell me in the comments below! I’d still love to hear about it. And if you’d like your own copy, I can hook you up there too.

The Giving Thanks printable is now available in my Etsy shop.

 

{loving} fondant cupcake toppers for halloween

I am juggling so many things this week, but I had to stop and pause a moment when I visited Edible Details and saw this:

12 Fancy Candy Corn toppers

Oh my word that scallop edge! And then I saw:

12 Crow silhouette Toppers

I am a lover of primitive style American folk art which is laden with crows. This is how I decorate for Halloween, primitve style with lots of cinnamon rubbed witches and cast iron crows. Is it any wonder I love this topper?

And then this sweet little witches hat beckoned:

6 3D Witches Hats

Where did I find these sweet edible but so cute you want to save them and put them on your dresser cupcake toppers? These lovely creations are made by Brittany of Edible Details. Brittany creates edible cupcake toppers for all themes throughout the year, not just Halloween. She will even create custom toppers to perfectly match your party theme and decor. Seriously amazing right? I mean, check out that 3D witch hat! Her 3D fondant creations are super cute and adorable, and need we say it, sweet.

Are you hosting a Halloween party  this year? Get excited because I have just launched my latest DIY Printable Party collection for Halloween!

I have been so eager to share this classic black, orange and white collection with you! If you want to host a Halloween party in traditional colours with a whole lot of sweetness, this may be the collection for you. A little spooky with a frightful BOO, but mostly full of sweetness with plenty of candy corn and a cutie patootie ghost wearing a bow on her head and I am totally in love with her!

The Happy Halloween collection has everything you need to craft a sweet and spooktacular party! Invitations with a DIY crafty flair, 3 sheets of party circles, 2 sheets of bottle wrappers, tent cards, favor tags, 3 party signs, ghost cut outs, mini chocolate bar wrappers, a Happy Halloween banner, and 10 sheets of coordinating decorative papers so you can create your favorite paper decorations in coordinating patterns. I used the paper to cover the tops of some loot bags, line platters and decorate lollipop stands.

We all know I love gumballs! So I had to make a giant candy corn out of gumballs and an icing bag. I just couldn’t resist.

And because I love a simple party DIY, you can decorate your invitations with a party circle of your choice! Simply, print and punch out your favorite party circles and attach at the top of your invite (guide circle provided on the invites). Candy corn and jack-o-lanterns for the boys and cutie patootie girlie ghost for the girls!

Seriously, I love her!

And because I’m so excited to finally be able to share this with you, I am launching the collection with a 50% OFF sale!

canada day crafts: firework cupcake toppers

Jun
30

Am I getting you in a crafty mood yet? I think this next Canada Day craft is sure to light your fire!

Anyone serving up some two-bite brownies or cupcakes tomorrow? I ate all the two-bite brownies last night, soI need to run off and grab some more for tomorrow, they are a holiday favorite around here. We like to light them up for Canada Day, make them sparkle with live sparklers, but we also like to dress them up with some kid-safe firework cupcake toppers!

All you need (besides the brownies of course) to make these firework cupcake toppers are lollipop sticks (you could also use long toothpicks), tape and tissue or crepe paper or paper napkins. I’m using red napkins.

First you want to open your napkin to make a large rectangle, cut along the folded edge, and put one piece aside. Fold the other piece with long sides together to create a long thin rectangle amd cut along the folded edge again, place one piece aside. With the remaining piece of napkin, cut along one edge to create fringe, leaving a .5 cm edge uncut. Fringe scissors would be very helpful at this stage.

Attach one end of the fringe to a lollipop stick with a bit of tape.

Start rolling! Roll the fringe around the lollipop stick and secure the end to the lollipop stick with tape until it is quite secure.

Fluff your firework and place in a brownie!

I think these firework toppers work perfectly with the party circles and flags in my Canada Day DIY Printable Party Holiday Collection. But if you want to stick with fireworks,  you can make them in a variety of different colours for a full firework display! They do look quite magical in sparkly paper.

There’s also a sheet of BLANK tent cards for you to fill in just in case I missed something on your menu.

{NEW TO SHOP} strawberry social

This lovely summer weather we’ve been having has me craving strawberries! I hit my favorite farm market last Friday and walked away with strawberries fresh from their fields, and can we say heavenly? Nothing like fresh Ontario strawberries straight from the field, red, ripe and juicy sweet! I always look forward to strawberry season, it means strawberry shortcake, strawberry jam and strawberry wine from my favorite winery, yum, yum and yum!

With the upcoming strawberry season in mind, and the plentiful requests from mom’s for non-commercially themed Strawberry Shortcake-esque party printables, I got to work on my new Strawberry Social DIY Printable Party Collection!

And because I coudn’t choose between lime green stripes or pink polka dots on red for the invitations, you get to! Tell me, which do you like best?

Lime green stripes?

Or pink polka dots on red?

This collection is available in my Etsy shop. It’s 50% OFF for a limited time!

If you want coordinating bottle wrappers, tent cards, favor tags or a banner, just send me an email and I’ll get to work!

As a special treat, if you purchase the Strawberry Social Party Circles  or Strawberry Social Invitations over the next week, you’ll receive the Strawberry Shortcake Decorative Papers set for FREE! After that, they’ll be $4.00, so don’t wait, summer is coming!

I’d love to hear from hear you! Tell me which invitation design is your fave!
