Snow Globe Frozen Invitations

I’m so excited to share Princess’s Frozen birthday party this week with you guys!  I hope you enjoy seeing it as much as I enjoyed planning it!  I love planning birthday parties for my kids, they are so much FUN!

easy snow globe invitations frozen birthday party

Frozen was an easy theme for Princess to choose this year.  The hard part was narrowing down all the options!  So the first part, Invitations, they are the first view guests get of the theme, of what to expect from the party.  I love doing hand made, creative, invitations!


I decided to create Snow Globes for the invitations!  The information on the back and the front something from the movie.  I created layers of blue snowflakes (dark to light) in photoshop then I created silhouettes of Anna and Elsa and laid them over the top!


I printed both sides onto card stock (invitation and image) then cut out the circles.  You can use a Silhouette, Cricut or simply hand cut them, they are super simple.


Then I bought some thick plastic sheeting and cut out matching circles, one for each invitation.


For the “snow” I wanted mini styrofoam balls, but I didn’t want to buy a 50 lbs bag, so instead I bought a travel pillow and cut it open!  It created a HUGE mess, they stick to everything… ANYWAY, I poured a little bit into each invitation, topped with a plastic circle then used my sewing machine to sew around the circle!


Then I glued brown curves to the front and back of each invitation to look like the base of a snow globe!  I love love LOVE how they turned out!!!  They went through the mail just fine too!  Always a plus!

Neighbor Christmas gifts labels – free printables

I hope you have enjoyed all the recipes this week!  Last year I made 3 dozen of each sauce for neighbors, and the kid’s make a dozen of the fudge boxes for teacher/leaders! They were all a huge it, and people love that they could put it in the fridge for later and didn’t have to worry about food going bad (since they get so much food trays this time of year)


I loved creating these labels, and of course used bakers twine to tie it all together!  But you could use anything to dress these jars up, ribbon, twine or more.  Also if you don’t want to put the “to: from:” on a string you could always glue it to the jar!

Thanksgiving Table Settings and Printables

I actually created all these labels and put together this table 2 years ago, but I’m just NOW finally sharing it!  Perfect for our monthly Point of View link party, don’t forget to come link up your tabletop posts!

We had Thanksgiving with my sister, Chelsea Peterson Photography, her family and our parents. It was fun planning out the table ! We first decided on a color scheme, nothing too strange, orange, red, yellow and burgundy!  We wanted both food labels AND place settings with everyone’s name’s, even all the kids.  We also decided to add Mason jars and raffia as well.

Free Chalkboard Photo Christmas cards

I hope you have all been enjoying my Free Lego Star Wars labels available on my Facebook page! They are still there, but for Christmas my sister suggested it would be fun to offer some photo Christmas cards. I spent the last few days designing these options to offer you.


I decided to go with the chalkboard trend, I hope you like them. I created 6 fronts and 6 backs. 3 vertical and 3 horizontal. and we’re giving half of them away for free if you like MY facebook page, Topsy Turvy.

Marriage and Birth certificate family wooden puzzle

The Theme for the Point of View this month is “Family


I bought this wooden “Family” puzzle from Oh My Crafts at their warehouse sale last month.  so when this month’s theme came up it was PERFECT! I debated painting it, or mod podging scrapbook paper on it, then I decided to try ink jet transfer using my marriage certificate and children’s birth certificates (inspired by this)!

Airplane Baby Shower

UPDATE: the printables are ready!

Now for the full Airplane Baby Shower Reveal!  It was SUCH a fun party to plan and throw, and so much fun for my sweet cousin to come into town so we could all love on her and be happy for her upcoming baby!


Again- we went with the Airplane shower because her Dad worked as an air traffic controller and her husband works for Delta, so lots and lots of flying are in this kid future!  We designed the table to look like grass on either side of a runway…  and I love how the table turned out!  I wrapped a few of my puzzle boxes in green wrapping paper to add height without sticking out.
