Cupcake Birthday Party Invitation

The weekend is finally here!!  I made this sample birthday party invitation for my daughters friends 3 year old daughter.  He didn't request anything specific so I used some patterned paper I had in my stash for a couple of years.  The card insert with party info pulls out by pulling on the cupcake tab.  I hope he likes it!!

Wedding Box Favor

I made this wedding favor sample for my daughter.  The wedding isn't until next year but I'm getting a big head start as I will also be doing the save the dates, bridal shower invitations, bridal shower favors, wedding invitations, wedding favors, table cards and helping with the center pieces.  I sent her a picture and it's pretty right on with what her theme is.  The only thing I will change is the paper.  I will use a solid light yellow card stock (I just used what I had on hand to make it so she could get an idea of what I was talking about).  I  also will not use the scalloped circle for the "window".  I will use a label framelit instead.  I will be going to her house today so she can see it in person but so far, it's a yes!!  There will be a clear cellophane bag that will go inside which will hold white chocolate seashells with iridescent sprinkles to give it a pearlish type luster.  The bag will be tied with turquoise ribbon and a tag with the newlyweds names and date which will hang from the ribbon.  It's an exciting time!!

Cheetah Happy Birthday/Sour Cream Favors

Good afternoon and Happy Sunday.  The weekend went by so fast and I'm exhausted from so much running around.  I'm happy though that I was productive.  I made a birthday card for my husband's niece Desiree whose birthday we celebrated yesterday at the park.  I was told she loves cheetah print but hates pink so I made sure to stay away from that color.  LOL

My 2nd project are these sour cream favors I made for my niece Alicia's baby shower today.  The other day I went to Michae's for baby girl printed paper but that had NONE.  I saw this pink princess patterned paper and thought this will have to do because not only did I not want to run around looking for paper but she didn't know I was going to make these favors anyway so it was just a nice little something.

Papillon Poupourri and Sunflower Card

Happy Saturday.  Today I feel like I can finally relax and have some me time.  I went to stamp club today and we made a couple of cards.  I love these cards, pretty and simple.  I'm sure they will both go to my mom so I can put a smile on her face.  She looks forward to checking the mail and receiving a card in her box.  :)

Alice in Wonderland Invitation

Good afternoon everyone.  I received an order for some inviations for a Quincenera next month.  The birthday girl wanted Tim Burtons "White Rabbit".  I have seen this style invitation before but only as a flat invitation.  I made mine a card style where you open it.  I didn't use the traditional "Q" for the "Queen of Hearts".  I used a whimsical "Q" because after all, this IS Alice in Wonderland.  I used SU heart punch for the hearts which are the PERFECT size!  The customer loved the sample!  The invitations will be ready for delivery next Sunday.  Have a great week everyone!!
