Birthday Invitations

Good morning!! I spent my weekend designing and making invitations for my daughters 3rd birthday party. She is justing having the kids that my mom and I babysit over for lunch and cupcakes. I am going to make a caterpillar out of cupcakes (pictures will be posted).

 For the invitations I used paper from Michaels Recollection Sweet Treats. I bought this paper when it was onsale for 4/ $1 just because I love cupcakes and when designing my daughters invitations I knew this was perfect paper to use. I used my gypsy to plan out all of the cutouts.

Cupcake is from Once Upon A Princess and cut out at 3.5"
Balloon is from Create A Critter and cut out at 3"
I then cut out the black out feature people from Paper Doll Dress up at 4.5" I used the arms/hands for the cupcake. I used pop up dots to keep the hands in place
I used Cotton Candy stickles on the cupcake for the "sprinkles"
Googly eyes from the dollar store on the cupcake
Peachy Keen stamps Everyday Character Face Assortment for the ballons face, with a purple ink pad from the dollar store
The word Celebrate is from a stamp set that I just picked up last Thursday from HomeSense. The company is JustRite and the set is called Just a Note. The stamps come with interchangeable borders but I didn't use them for this project. If you would like to learn more about these stamps you can visit http://www.justritestampers.com/
I used a frisker border punch for the ouside edge of the card (my daughter picked which punch she wanted me to use)
I used ribbon that I have had for ever (no idea where it came from)
For the inside I used a stamp that mom has had for a very long time and stamped it on a piece of pink card stock and glued it on the inside.

The invites took up most of my time on the weekend (my free time when my daughter was napping). My next big projects are scrapbook pages since I am behind on my daughters scrapbook ( 2 down 10 more to go). I will post them when I get a chance to upload the pictures to my dad's computer ( I can't upload them to mine for some reason). Until then have a Great Day!!!
