Remember this little sneak peak?


I’m back with the whole kit and kaboodle – or kit and ka-Poodle. Sorry, I can’t resist a bad pun.

Party Animals

We’re celebrating i {heart} paper’s fifth birthday this week. You can join party central on the blog and Twitter. Party On!

Party Pups

Rumor has it that owner Kate is as nuts about dogs as we are. She’s a huge dog rescue advocate. October is Adopt A Shelter Dog month, the birthday of one of Kate’s dogs, BooBoo and the Gotcha/Adoption day of Mr. Barbo. So, in honor of all of that, i {heart} paper is donating 10% of all sales during the birthday sale to Home For Good Dog RescueEleventh Hour Rescue and Pilots ‘n Paws.

So, I mean, really, how perfect are these little birthday cards and cupcake toppers?! Balloon Puppies on a String!

Mailey Dog and Pillow Pup are happy.


Tips & Techniques

The Avery Elle stamp set, Party Animal, makes this little project so simple.

Poodle Sticks

The little poodles would be fun cupcake toppers. I cut each puppy out twice and glued a pixie stick between them. They’re sitting in one of my Mom’s vintage planters – to which I added just a little embellishment.

3x3 Poodle Cards

These little 3″ by 3″ cards were inspired by a challenge at Little Red Wagon to make mini cards and by Kim’s darling mini-card, here. I wanted to make the balloon animals look like they were filled with helium and tied to a string with a flag – because you just can’t have too much fun – even in miniature.

Here are all the ingredients including the fun i {heart} paper toys. Enjoy the party and Congratulations, Kate!
