Anyone can tell you, life is not always peachy keen or picture perfect. But I like to try and see the glass as half full. There are plenty of life’s little reminders that we have so much to be happy about and to celebrate. One is right here in front of me. Starting this Blog has allowed me to express my creative side. I haven’t been on here in a couple of weeks but it seems like forever. I am so happy to be back! We were out visiting family & friends in CA. We had such a great time and I miss them all so much. I can’t wait to begin crafting and scrapping today. The kids are on vacation so yesterday we went to the library and saw that it is national craft week. Needless to say we are going to have ourselves a “Crafter-noon” I’ll be sure to post our makings.
Today I am going to show you the sample card of invitations I made for my niece Susana’s Birthday party. She loves all things frilly and she is a total princess.
I used stamps from a stamp line called my cute stamps. I colored with my copic Markers RV000, RV02, RV21, RV23
for that yummy bubble gum pink color. The castle was layered with Basic Grey’s Bittersweet collection. I used stickles, Robins Nest Dew Drops, Glossy Accents, and a diamond bling in the middle.
Wizard to cut out the scallop oval and satin ribbon. Flowers are prima and Kaiser pearls on the bottom of her dress.
These invites were ridiculously “embellied out” and a true labor of love, I tell ya. Needless to say I am glad I only have two niece’s that are in this fuffy stage. But I eat up every minute of it since my princess Tyla is now 11 and says she is “too old” for this kind of stuff.
I’ll Be back soon and thanks for stopping by. ~Angela
