An Invitation for a Golf Party

Golf is a sport that I admittedly do not understand.  In spite of the fact that there is literally a golf course on just about every corner where I live in south Florida, I have never had the desire to attempt to play.  Maybe I am afraid of another addiction!

A French Invitation

My daughter asked me to create an invitation for her French National Honor Society club.  The club members wanted a nice invitation to give to their school's principal for the club's upcoming induction ceremony for next year.

Baby Shower Invitation

I just completed a job for a client who requested "fun" and "different" invitations for a baby shower.  She didn't want the printed ones that you can order online.  (Woo hoo!)

I emailed her a couple of choices.  The first sample started out just being a "onesie" card, but I thought it needed to be more than that.  I cut the onesie into two pieces.  That way I was able to get two cards from one "onesie" (are you confused yet?!) and there would be more room inside the invitation for the wording.

I also sent her this old stand-by as another choice:

She suggested onesies and a clothesline, so I came up with this, and it was the winner!

So fun to make!

Invitation for My Dad & His Brother's 75th Birthday Party: Tutorial

I finished the invitations for the upcoming birthday bash in honor of my dad and his twin brother's 75th birthday.  It really is quite challenging to combine creativity with age-appropriateness.  Birthday party invitations usually call for balloons and confetti and fun stuff like that.  However, those things really didn't seem to fit.  This is what I came up with.  It is really easy to make.  Take a look:

I used drywall tape to break up the plain blue background.  I'm telling you, every papercrafter needs to have drywall tape on-hand.

They have lived on opposite sides of the country pretty much all of their lives, so there really aren't many pictures of just the two of them together.  I thought this baby picture was cute, no? 

I love this denim ribbon by Stampin' Up!  I wish I could buy/make denim-looking paper.  (Hmmm...does anyone know how?)

Be sure to cover the brad fasteners with a piece of cardstock to make sure your finished product is nice and clean-looking.

Halloween Party Invitation Template & Tutorial

Now that you have your masks made, below is an invitation you can make for a fun party for your daughter and her friends and their dolls.  I like the color combos, don't you?  They are kind of creepy and classy at the same time.  :)


Let's get started making this fun pocket invitation!

Click HERE for the template.

For this card, we are going to use the pocket template for a 5" x 7" card.  (The template also includes a pocket for a 4 1/4" 5 1/2" card.)
