Oh Baby!

I adore all things baby shower! So when I was contacted months ago to create a custom made baby shower invitation that was inspired by…

turtleballoons

I was completely delighted! And here is the result:

I thought it was a great idea to use the pearls instead of the polka dot paper! I hope the baby shower was as wonderful as the experience of hand making all the invitations =)

Start your engines!

Race on over to P.A.R.T.Y!

I am so excited to be a part of Thomas’ 6th birthday celebration!  I designed this invitation based around race cars because when your six-hot wheels are super cool! I found most of the graphics from clipart and made a few adjustments on photoshop.  I hand cranked 30 of the blue flower die cuts for the trophies. (I now realize why paper punches rule!)  The finishing touches that were not captured in the photo was using my rounded corner punch on two sides of the card.  I made a few in green, yellow, and cream just to give a little variety.  These were a lot of fun to make and I can’t wait to stuff myself with delicious birthday cake! Happy Birthday!

Ideas for Save-the-Date!

Save the date for you and your perfect mate!

Magnets, postcards, stickers…ohmy!  After searching online about what save-the-dates should include it boils down to 1) the wedding date 2) location and 3) name of bride and groom.  Simple enough right?  The save-the-date tags (below) maybe a bit on the small space side but the top note (above) seems like a good size for all the information.  I still want to play around and figure out a save-the-date template that I really love.  I like these but I’m looking for l.o.v.e! Isn’t that appropriate?!

Wedding Invitation

So remember the post where I was completely thrilled about the wedding invites?  Well, TA-DA!!!

Pocket Fold Invitation: (The t&c represent initials of the bride&groom but today it will be tickle crafts tying the knot!)

Main Invitation Card:

Tiered cards tucked in a pocket:

Overall: (Intentionally left blank because I wanted to show just the template!)

Here are some additional flower designs that can be added to the main invitation.  So many choices, lots of fun! I hope you loooooooooooooooove these as much I do! 🙂

You’re invited!

I’ve been toying with the idea of making invitations.

I’ve been asked to make several different templates and here is one of them!  The dimensions on this invitation is a tad on the smaller side because I wanted to give just an idea of how it may look.  What I love about crafting is that your ideas are always changing and you discover better ones as you create.   Sometimes your end product looks exactly as you imagined or not at all!  Either way, it’s fun to be creative and don’t be afraid to try out new ideas!  Happy crafting!
