The Paper Hoarder

It’s been a long time since I last posted so it’s only fitting that this post is about dino baby shower invites that I created for my friend Lorrie’s baby shower.

Again, when making invites, the best strategy is keep it simple - the more details, the long it will take.  I made 15 of these dino invites in a very short amount of time.  I think they are simple but still cute.

I used the dino cutout from the Cricut Cake - Birthday Cake cartridge.  Yes, the Cricut Cake cartridges work on paper too!  Exciting!

I embelished the mommy dino with a few orange gems and that’s it.  I toyed with the idea of adding a brown ribbon but felt that might be moving the invites in a more male direction because the parents-to-be don’t know the sex of the baby.

Aydan’s 1st Birthday!

Baby Aydan celebrated his 1st birthday this weekend and I made this alien-inspired card for him.  Card size is 5x7.  I used a nice silver paper for the background, Cuttlebuged a star print on it.  Happy Birthday sentiment comes from Create-a-Critter cartridge.

Purple Bridal Shower Invite

Ack, it’s been a long time since my last post!  I’m still card making, just at a slower pace.

Here’s a bridal shower invite that I made for my friend Melissa.  She’s getting married in July and I’m in the wedding party!  Bridal shower is in May.

Wedding colours are purple, black and white so I tried to match those with the shower invite.  Stay tuned for more shower decor as I will make a banner and some other paper decor items.

Many Shades of Thanks - Part 2

As promised, a few more baby shower thank you cards I made:

Many Shades of Thanks

Usually when I have to make a tonne of cards like invites or thank yous, the easiest thing to do is come up with one design and then make the same card over and over again until you have enough.  I have a hard time doing that…I’m a glutton for punishment…I like to make individual cards that are unique so that everyone doesn’t get the same card.

Case in point…these baby shower thank you cards:

I’ll post a few more tomorrow.

Fall Wedding!

Wow, fall is upon us already.  

I went to my cousin’s wedding on the weekend.  Made her this wedding card which matches her blue/silver colour theme:

And the happy couple:

Congrats Andrea and Brian!

Diaper Buggy!

My friend Karol is about to have baby #2 so we decided to make a diaper buggy for her.  Technically, Rach constructed the buggy.  I just contributed the Hello Kitty piggy bank:

I also did the signage for the back of the buggy:

And Karol kept the sign for baby Mira’s nursery:

Can’t wait to meet her!

Cottage Wedding

I attended a lovely wedding this summer.  The couple got married on the bride’s family’s property in Muskokas.

I didn’t know the couple that well but knowing that they were having an outdoor wedding, I made them this card:

A few photos from the day:

Congrats Sarah and Patrice!

Shower and Wedding Card

My dear friend Lara got married this weekend in Kenora and I couldn’t attend :(

She had a Hawaiian themed bridal shower so I did this simple but cute card for her.  

And then for the wedding:

I believe her wedding colours were blue.  Can’t wait to see the wedding pics and congrats to the happy couple!

Bridal Shower Card!

My cousin Andrea is getting married this fall.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t attend her bridal shower but my sister went and we got her a toaster from her registry.  

I made this cute card using the toaster cut from the cartridge From My Kitchen.  I added in the ‘heart’ toasts because I thought it was appropriate for a bridal shower.  Background is embossed with corresponding Cuttlebug folder.
