20 days??!? I can't believe I wasn't able to post for 20 days. Real life sure gets in the way of craftiness. But that doesn't mean I have neglected my planet. I have been busy with some projects actually. Just didn't have the time to share them online. I have had some fun hauls also, even though I promised not to buy any more craft stuff. But I how can you resist some really good deals, right?
I am proud to say though, that most of the house is clean. Yeah! My planet was too, until I started working on this latest project. It's a set of birthday party invitations for a special girl who just turned eight. Her name is Brooklyn and she loves horses. When I was asked to make her invitations, I already knew what stamp to use.
When I make birthday invitations, I try to make them as simple and clean as possible. I also don't put too many layers, taking into consideration the possibility of the invitations being mailed.
I originally made two designs. The card I will share with you today is the one that was not picked, which I converted into a birthday card to give to Brooklyn.
cardstock/dp: Georgia Pacific, leftovers
image/sentiment: Unity, Stampin' Up
tools: Cuttlebug, Spellbinders
misc.: Ranger embossing poweradhesive: Scotch, mounting tape
As for the invitations, I just finished the first prototype last night. And if that passes quality inspection, I will be making 30 of them. I can't wait! My last big project was the wedding invitations I made for my best friend's wedding last year (click here to see).
Well, that's it for now. 'Til next blog!
