1st birthday invitations

My son turns 1 next month and he just loves Mickey Mouse so much that we are making that the theme. Here is the invitation I have been working on for his party. I used the gypsy to weld Mickey from Disney Mickey and Friends to a square from George and Basic Shapes and then cut it out in white and then cut out all the layers as normal and then layered them ontop of the white one. The bottom layer of the card is black cardstock and the stars are just a loose cardstock from Hobby Lobby.

Birthday invites

My daughter Trulie turned 4 this last month and she had a unicorn themed birthday party. These are the invitations I made for her party. The Unicorn is a horse from Animal Kingdom welded with a butterfly body from Gypsy Wanderings. The grass is from Plantin Schoolbook and the tag is also from Gypsy Wanderings. Pink glitter glue was used for the mane and tail and yellow glitter glue was used on the horn. The background was also embossed using the cuttlebug.

A few months ago I made these invites for one of my husband's coworkers. I used the Wedding solutions cartridge for the crown, heat embossed it and added a rhinestone. The numbers are from Plantin Schoolbook. The inside was embossed using the cuttlebug and I inked the edges of the white info part with black stampin up ink.

Halloween goodie bags

My daughter started school this year and of course yesterday was Halloween. Last week she asked me to make Halloween goodie bags for her class, how could I refuse, and of course its an excuse to use my cricut. So these are the goodie bags I made the pumpkin is from Gypsy Wanderings and cut at 2 1/4 inches, I cut it out in orange, yellow and green (using the hide contour feature on the yellow and green pumpkins) then cut the stems off the orange and yellow ones and layered them. The thought bubble is from George and Basic Shapes and cut at 2 1/4 inch width by 1 inch height. The stamp is a Studio G stamp.

and one for her teacher which includes a matching post it note holder.
