Dr. Suess Baby Shower Party Decorations

As promised yesterday, here are the Dr. Suess party decorations from the Baby Shower I helped plan. (Did you miss the invitations I posted yesterday? Click to go back and see them.)

First, these were the table centerpieces. I created Cat in the Hat hat’s using Tootsie Roll Banks. They were ABsolutely perfect!

We had a candy buffet with candies inspired by Dr. Suess books. So fun! Here is a pic of some of them. You can see, I attached a little stick to the buckets with the Dr. Suess book cover and then what the candy was using a the 1-3/4 Circle Punch and the 2-3/8 Scallop Circle Punch. In the center was a cute little poem created in My Digital Studio that matched the invitation about the Candy Buffet.

Dr. Suess Baby Shower Digital Invitation

A couple months ago, I had the honor to help throw a baby shower for a very special friend (basically my sister but not by blood). The theme was Dr. Suess and I had so much fun making things for the shower. To start I created a digital invitation in My Digital Studio (MDS). I ABsolutely love how they turned out and I hope you do too!

Stampin Blendabilities


BLENDABILITIES UPDATE: There have been continued quality issues with the Blendabilities Markers product line. Due to the nature of the defect (see below), Stampin’ Up! has concluded that difficulties, dissatisfaction, and product returns will only become more widespread. The manufacturer is unable to correct the problem in a manner that Stampin’ Up! is certain would meet their high quality standards and provide them with a stable, long-term solution. Therefore, after a great deal of deliberation and in order to prevent further disappointment, the Blendabilities product line has been discontinued.

BLENDABILITIES Q & A

Q: Will the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad (item #132708) and the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad Refill (item #133456) still be available for purchase?
A: Yes. These items will continue to be available for purchase. The Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad is my FAVORITE every day black ink. So happy!

Q: What are the quality problems with this product?
A: When the tip is welded to the barrel, the welding process can leave microscopic (invisible) holes in the marker tip. This leads to accelerated evaporation of the alcohol in the ink.

Q: Are all Blendabilities markers defective?
A: No. Most Blendabilities markers work as intended and I personally haven’t experienced the drying issue but am aware of it from customers and fellow demonstrators.

Q: What if I have Blendabilities markers that are defective?
A: If you ordered them through me, please email me for assistance. If not, please contact the demonstrator you ordered them through.
