This week, The Little Style File turned ONE! Betsy and I can hardly believe a year has flown by and we thank all of you -husbands, kids, parents, friends and readers! - for your support!
With The Little Style File turning one and Madeline turning 3......
what better way to celebrate than with a giveaway from Anders Ruff?! Anders Ruff specializes in party printable kits and invitations personalized for the guest of honor.
First, I have to say that the idea of a printable party kit used to be a little overwhelming to me. How do you cut those perfect circles? The key to the Anders Ruff printable party kit was the first page of the PDF file that listed all of the supplies you need and the helpful tools. After a quick trip to the craft store, I had my 2" circle punch, hole punch and paper cutter and was ready to get crafty!
Here's how I knew I did a great job - I've mentioned before that my mom is a retired art teacher. When my oldest daughter came home from kindergarten she walked into the house and said, "Oh, was Nonna here today?" I told her no so she replied with, "Did you go to Nonna's?" Again, no, so then she said, "Are you SURE Nonna wasn't here? Who made all of this stuff?!" That would be your mom, Ellie. I MADE IT. Well, you know, I cut, taped and tied it.
Anders Ruff makes you look like a party pro! The PDF file included over 25 pages of cupcake toppers, banners, thank you notes, gift tags, water bottle labels, return address labels, printed paper and more. You print what you want as many times as you need it.
I have to say that assembling the banners, cupcake toppers, pinata bags, etc. was very cathartic! While watching my favorite summer guilty pleasures on tv, I could cut, tape and tie. The entire process went much faster than I anticipated.
Anders Ruff was great to work with and they have a super speedy turn around time (3 days) with rush services available.
There are loads more pictures to see of Madeline's 3rd Birthday Under the Sea but let's get to the fun part - THE GIVEAWAY!
