Our Favorite Party Crafting Supplies + Free Printable Chevron Birthday Party Circles

{photo via no biggie}

We love EK Success! We are excited to officially announce that we are now a retailer for EK Success and we are starting to carry products in our shop! The paper punches work beautifully with our printable party designs. Last week, the TomKat team attended and taught at The Creative Connection Event. It was incredible! {Read full recap here.} During our classes, we taught over 50 creative women how to make cupcake toppers, cupcake wrappers, pennant banners and cake bunting. I thought I would share the cupcake topper designs I created for the class so you can make them, too! {Click image to download}

After the attendees created their chevron party items, the real fun began! We divided them into teams for a Party Design Challenge! The teams were able to pull materials from a table filled with papers, embellishments and tools from EK Success, Shop Sweet Lulu and my craft closet!  They had 45 minutes to create a party item or tablescape and the results were incredible! Here are some photos of our teams and what they made!

The teams had access to our favorite EK Success tools to create their projects. Lucky for you, EK Success has generously offered to give away a set of these tools to one of our loyal readers!

The winner will receive the following tools:


  • 2″ scallop circle punch {my all time favorite}

  • 2.25″ circle punch

  • square flourish punch

  • 3″ scallop circle punch

  • circle scissors pro & glass mat {great for cutting our 4″ party circles}


We have a winner!
