Birthday Invites & Classes!

I have decided to take a break from creating Julia's third birthday invitation to post the upcoming classes. I have the basic design, stamps and paper chosen but I feel like there is something missing....the problem is that I do not know what it is! You ever have that problem?? Maybe I am putting too much pressure on myself to create the perfect invite but like I said before, this is something that I LOVE to do for my children.

Her first birthday invitation was awesome (if I do say so myself). Here is a little peak... I used Penny Black's animal party stamp. It was stamped using Versafine Olympia green ink and embossed using clear embossing powder. I then coloured the image with Souffle pens; they gave me the exact look I was going for. I tried Tombow markers first with the image stamped on white paper and the whole card was just wrong. The moment the image was stamped on the orange paper and the Souffles were used, it just all came together.

I used the Cricut to cut the "1st" out. Looking at the invite I love how I stuck with a "circle" theme throughout the invitation. The circles around the invite were an after thought...they were my favourite addition to the invite.

Here is a little look at her second birthday invitation. I used Scribble Scrabbles circus baby paper and what do you know, I once again choose a "circle" theme for the invite. I used the cuttlebug and nestabilities to cut out the various sizes of circles. The cricut was used again to cut out the "2". Glitter was used on the entire invite just to make it a little more girly!

So now you know why I am stressing! Oh...the pressure we put on ourselves! I will post the final invite once complete and you guys can tell me how I did!

Enough about are the cards for the next round of classes. Please call (519.351.5220) or stop in the store to reserve your spot. Please DO NOT email. As always, payment within 48 hours is required to hold your seat.
