Some Birthday Invitations :)

I made some birthday invitations for my friend’s son’s birthday party using the sample invite made for the blog hop here. It became popular that I am asked to make a girl version of it using butterfly for a little girl’s birthday party.
So here is what I came up with.
Girl birthday invites
Girl birthday invites
Supplies:
Cardstock: Stampers Select White from PTI, Tempting Turquoise from SU
Stamps: Party Elements Critters from Clean ans Simple stamps. Father Knows Best from PTI
Inks: Pixie Pink from SU and Stazon black ink
Accessories: Stripes embossing folder from SU, brayer, cuttlebug, Beautiful Butterflies dies from PTI and rhinestones from Kaisercraft.
She liked it so much especially the butterflies and the rhinestones on it. This card fits into a normal envelope. I adhered a butterfly on the envelope to coordinate the invites.

Birthday Invitation

Its the 25th and today is Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. I think for the past two years, I would have missed couple of hops? I didn’t want to miss this one because the inspirational picture is “awesome”
Aqua and yellow colour combination and those stripes & polka dots are just so pretty. Loved it straightaway. I decided to do Birthday Invitations instead of cards this time. So here is my take on the picture
Birthday Invitation
Supplies:
Cardstock: Stampers Select White and Aqua Mist cardstock from PTI
Stamp sets: Cupcake Collection from PTI. Party Elements- Critter from Clean and Simple Stamps
Inks: Summer Sunrise and Aqua Mist from PTI and Stazon Black Ink
Accessories: Stripes embossing folder, Cuttlebug, Brayer, Frost White Stickles.
I inked the striped embossing folder with PTI’s Summer Sunrise ink and embossed a white cardstock panel.ย  Then stamped the invitation on another white card panel. Adhered this on the embossed card. Diecut and stamped cupcake and adhered using foam squares. Added some frost white stickles to the cupcake. Finally matted the entire card on a Aqua Mist cardstock panel.
This is just a sample. Now I need to make 12 more of it for a friend’s toddler birthday party ๐Ÿ™‚
Thanks so much for visiting and happy hopping!

Inspired by Pinterest

Afternoon! I am happy to be back blogging today. Until last night I was unable to even sit up for more than 2 hours. The cough is persistant, vomiting, eyes burning, nose block and body aches. I cannot recall being this ill before ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I have given bloods,swabs, sputum and chest x-ray and waiting for the results. On antibiotics and steriods and hoping I will get better fully after this weekend.
I am planning to do a “Inspired by Pinterest” section every week. I will select a picture from my Inspirational Patterns board and use it as an inspirational to make a project. It can be anything from card, to set of card to frame or even invitation sets…What do you think? It will be fun and if you like to join and make a project using the picture then, I will post a linky. It depends on how many responses I get today, Ok!
For today’s inspirational picture, I chose this one.

And my project is a frame.

Hope you like it.So if you find this picture inspirational and make a project, then leave a comment with a link to your project. Also let me know if you like to play with me ever Thursday ๐Ÿ™‚

Supplies:ย

Butterfly frame

What a gorgeous Sunday! Love that the weather has cooled down. We mowed the lawn this morning, spoke of parents, gave Charlie a bath, cleaned the house a bit, washed clothes and cooked lunch. Great day so far. Just sat down and so I thought I will share a butterfly frame I made some time ago when Moxie Fab had the Map to the Heart challenge. Just did not have the time to post and then realised the challenge was over. Anyway, here is the frame ๐Ÿ™‚
map butterfly frame
I love maps and this looks awesome in real. I want to print more maps and make a few more butterflies, birdies, rolled flowers frames. I need to look at my dies to see what other shapes can be made ๐Ÿ™‚ Hoping to make a few projects this afternoon. Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great Sunday ๐Ÿ™‚

The Map to Your Heart

Moxie Fab Challenge has a challenge called The Map to Your Heart – make projects using maps ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the idea and the inspirations are just magnificant. But when coming to making a project, I was stumped. Well, as the deadline is approaching, I was more determined to make something. I am a person who works well if I have deadline
So here is what I came up with.
Map frame

I printed out a map and ran alpha dies to get map alpha diecuts. I cut alphabet “I” and “U” using black cardstock. You can see how I am still using the rainbow striped leftovers by punching the heart shape ๐Ÿ™‚
So the “I” “โ™ฅ” and “U”ย  standout against the other map alphabets.
Supplies
Cardstock: White and Black cardstock.
Pattern Paper: Printed map from the computer
Accessories: White frame, Heart punch from SU, MFT Alpha dies, Cuttlebug and rainbow strip from previous project.
Thanks for visiting ๐Ÿ™‚

I have been making some valentine’s projects lately and here is another frame I made.

Love Framed!

Hey everybody,ย 
Hope you all had a great festive time with family and friends. Lots of fun, laughter and food?ย ย 
I don’t celebrate Christmas but sure do enjoyed the festivity during this time. Today being the Boxing Day, there is a lot of sales going around the country except in my town. All shops are closed until tomorrow. Weird isn’t it? But true. The town is deserted and nothing to do. Sad! Since it is a holiday, I expect people will get out wanting to shop and so the shops will be opened. But every shop in the town is shut. Not even Woolies and Coles!!!! I am disappointed ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I will be in the city next year this time. So something to look forward next Christmas and Boxing day.
Anyway, I wanted to share a frame I made for Valentine’s day.
Valentine's dayย  frame
Very easy to make. All you need is heart punch which is from Stampin’ Up!, red cardstock, a valentine sentiment and an ornate white frame. Simple and easy but makes a statement doesn’t it? Love it ๐Ÿ™‚
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
See you soon with more projects later.
Luv!

Frame time :)

It is time to share a frame I made. I recently bought a few $5 sets from Papertrey Ink and been waiting to use them. It is a hot day and being house bound, I decided to make a few frames. Here is one of them.
I CASed Nichole’s Boy Basics-Frog Hop frog card.
Frog frame
I changed the sentiment and shaded the frog and leaf using copics instead of stamping on them.
Love the frogy. He is so cute.
Tomorrow I have a valentine’s theme frame.
See you then ๐Ÿ™‚
ย 
Luv!

And here is a closeup of the sparkly snowflake focal point ๐Ÿ™‚

Although I don’t celebrate Christmas, I do gift friends. So this is a gift to a special friend ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I love it. Hope she does too ๐Ÿ™‚ Looking for a box to wrap itย  and it will be complete ๐Ÿ™‚
