In honor of our Party Time Challenge I thought we should have a big fun PARTY CROWN that you could print and decorate for a family member or friend to wear to celebrate an event. Our graphic designer Cindy van Koll Cindy created this crown pattern from 3 different crowns images I had and it turned out really fun. You can make crowns for birthdays, wedding showers, Mothers Day, His & Hers Anniversary parties and more!

Just left click on the image with your mouse until it gets as big as possible and then right click it to save to a picture file. Print it on light colored cardstock so you can see the design and read the Decorating Ideas below for inspiration.

 I printed the pattern quickly last night during our annual Oscar Party but no one wanted to be a model, except for Otis (in return for a biscuit). By the way, thanks for all the positive feedback when he went blind a few months ago. He is doing great and finding his way around the house great now.

We also Have a Party Cone Hat or Tussie Mussie Printable!

Way back in Dec 2007 I posted some fun samples our DT Ladies created with a cone style party hat pattern but the link to the pattern broke, so I thought we should enlarge it and offer it again. Cindy, our graphic designer enlarged it but kept it so it will still print on a 8.5 x 11 sheet of cardstock to create a Party Cone Hat to wear, or use as a festive cornet or Tussie Mussie you can decorate and fill with treats, flowers or party favors. You can glue the flap or cut a slit and insert it and adhere.

If you punch 2 small holes on either side you can add elastic to keep the hat on, or add ribbon or wire to hang your cone and fill it with all kinds of goodies to suit almost any occasion and celebration!  Look at this fun bird's nest hat DT leader Vicki Chrisman created. She made her own tall pattern and used Bird Notes Stamps to embellish with. NOTE: Vicki has a wonderful post on her blog HERE asking What Warms Your Soul? and a link to a GREAT Video!

Here is a Tussie Mussie or Cornet style cone DT member Michele Kovack created a few years ago as well and she also added a little nest but in the top. Michele also used a stamp from our Bird Notes stamp set to stamp the birds on a branch decorating the front.  Also be sure to see this super cute Tea Time card HERE on Michelle's blog she created recently using our Tea With Alice Scraps.

Here is a sweet Tussie Mussie Cone that DT Member Pam Hooten made back in 2007
for her new grandson for. Pam used our Cherubs stamp set and an image from our
Spring Joy Stickers. Sorry, the paper was from our Radiant Paper Pad which has sold out.

Here is a pretty card DT member Heidi Blankenship created recently with our Altered Fairy Scraps. You can get all the details HERE on Heidi's Blog.

I love this pretty card DT member Linda Duke created with our new Love Mail Scraps! You can get all the details HERE on Linda's Blog.  I'm so excited for Linda as she just retired last week and is thrilled with her new freedom!

I adore this image on our new Love Mail Scraps and I knew that DT member Melissa Phillips would also and of course it was the first image she created a new sample with! 
You can see the other cute little girl card HERE on Melissa's Blog  as well as read her heartfelt message about blogging

I love the way DT member Julie Campbell weaves her family stories into her blog posts with old vintage photos like this layout she did with her Grandmother and how she always added a XO for each birthday year. Julie used a the image from our Sew Special Scraps that you can fold into a little needle case. The details and story are HERE on Julies Blog.

Look at this rustic country style layout DT Member Mary Hamer created with our Farm Fresh Creative Scraps and how she stamped the little boys from our Down on the Farm Stamp Set and cut them and the fence out, so they could 'oversee things'

I will be back this week with some other fabulous samples from other designers I simply couldn't fit in this post. If I add to many images the patterns may not enlarge.  If you create a fun Crown, Party Hat or Tussie Mussie - please post it on our Facebook page HERE!
I have to tell a little secret - I'm scared of Facebook!  I don't understand it very well (geez I sound old or slow) but I'm trying to learn all the lingo and rules. I just don't have much time - so the wonderful Vicki Chrisman and DT ladies have been helping!

PLUS - I have to tell you about a Special Offer that Cyndi Duncan has from Altered Arts Magazine!  For all NEW Club Members who join now (while supplies last) they will receive the April 'BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED KIT - which includes both our Garden and Birds & Botanical Creative Scraps plus a great Garden Journal Cover Download Link, as well as several other wonderful garden theme goodies from an array of vendors!  You can get all the details HERE on the Altered Arts Website!
I will be back Wed with some great stuff!
