Whoo!! Has this month been a flurry of activity! Filled to the brim with projects, preparations, and plans! ...okay, enough with the "p's"! LOL But seriously- between invitation requests, birthdays, and hosting my very first card swap- there has been a lot going on! Let's talk invites, shall we? I had two requests this month, one for a baby shower and one for a surprise party.
One of my friends is have a baby and she wanted to have an untraditional shower, so that meant some untraditional invites! She told me her theme was 'The Diva is having a baby', so I pulled out my Gypsy to see what I could come up with. I used the New Arrival, Plantin Schoolbook, and Quarter Note Cricut cartidges to come up with this little cutie! She was very pleased with the outcome!
The second invitation order was for a surprise party for my co-worker's wife. Her favorite colors are black and red, a striking color combination that I seem to be using a lot lately. I wanted to create something different for her and the Criss Cross card found over on Splitcoaststampers immediately came to mind. After a couple of small modifications and some bling- this really nice invitation emerged! My co-worker really liked them- so much so that he ordered a few more! LOL!
