It’s been a busy week of celebrating some special birthdays – my dad turned 70 and one of our close friend’s Mark turned 40!
What better way to celebrate than to have some delicious birthday cake…and topped with a The Crafty Lass cake topper!
For my dad’s birthday, we had a wonderful Carrot, Cardamom and Pistachio cake from Cotswold Baking. It was so light and moist – scrumptious… clean plates all round, even after a three course lunch!
For the cake topper, I went with a ‘nautical’ theme – he loves sailing and can’t get enough of the summer sunshine – so a lovely little yacht, floating on the crest of a wave with a big bright yellow sun. Birthday bunting, and a little anchor completed the look. 🙂
For Mark’s 40th, we celebrated with some vanilla cupcakes with vanilla frosting. Mark is very into cars – and so using Adobe Illustrator I fashioned some road and speed signs to celebrate Mark’s special day. I am not sure I would be able to re-create the speed signs for commercial sale as the original British road sign designs are Crown copyright. However, for a small friend’s gathering – I am hoping this was ok! The road signs aren’t quite the same – but you get the feel and the idea! The yacht design was entirely my own design and creation 🙂
Happy Birthday Dad and Mark!

Congratulations to our dear friends Matt and Karen who got married recently. 🙂
As a wedding gift, I decided to make them some personalised bunting – in the colour scheme of their big day, and also made out of maps with special locations to them!
The maps were ‘old’ – some torn, some with covers missing – so I felt like I was upcycling them into a new, and special item for them to be cherished rather than recycled or worse – just binned.
So, in colours of Navy, Cream and Silver – I set about making some ‘M and K’ letters, silver hearts and a cream rose centerpiece – which now hangs on their mantelpiece at home!
Congrats again – I hope you had a lovely day! 🙂

What a glorious day yesterday was – the sun shone from morning til late evening – and good job it did too – we were invited to an afternoon tea (and prosecco!) garden party, and so rain wasn’t really part of the agenda…! (We were very lucky as both Friday, and today have been horrid!)
There were scones, plenty of clotted cream and jam, typically British sarnies, cakes… we didn’t leave hungry!
Aside from prosecco, delicious food, music, good company – every good party needs some decorations! And that is precisely where The Crafty Lass stepped in.
The brief was simple… make anything you like! But mainly the colour purple.
So, I set about making personalised bunting “Happy Birthday Amee” and “Time For Tea”, paper roses, tissue paper flowers, a party hat and rosette for The Birthday Girl, little cupcake flags, and heart confetti in hot pinks, purples, naturals and creams. (Alot of crafty fun was had!)

Or, alternatively – coming soon are the creative workshops where you can come along, be inspired and get involved to make these lovely crafty things for yourself! 🙂 Make. Create. Inspire.
Following my recent post: ‘The Crafty Lass does…Desk Art – Washi Tape Letters!‘, a friend – inspired by the bright colours and the ability to personalise the idea with her own choice of letters – she approached me to help her create some for a very thoughtful wedding gift!
Romantic ‘All you need is love’ and ‘Mr & Mrs’ tapes were selected, of course!
In regards to the other colours, we considered going down the wedding colour scheme route, then favourite colours, then all neutrals… however, we settled on gaining inspiration from a rather fabulous coloured dress that the Bride owns! A very personalised and lovely range of brights and pastels combined.
So, we slowly layered up the colours across the letters, with ‘All you need is love’ on the ‘J’ and the ‘C’, and appropriately, the ‘Mr and Mrs’ tape on the ‘&’.
And here, are the finished results!
An evening of fun, friends, craft and food – good times.
I do hope that the Bride and Groom had a wonderful wedding day and enjoy their washi tape letters!
