The one with Shower Invites

The first set of invitations I ever made were my own Bridal Shower Invites! I had seen an example that I loved and thought.... I could do that myself... and cheaper! So after some trial and error, this is what I came up with:

I wanted an image of a dress behind the vellum and I couldn't find any clip art I liked. Not knowing about stamps and digital scrapbooking, I just drew one I liked! I scanned it into the computer and printed it out on my paper. For my first try I don't think they turned out too bad!

This Pink and Brown one I made as a sample. I love the scalloped edges!

This baby shower invite was made for my friend Jen's baby shower! Her colors for the nursery were brown with blue and green accents and very modern. We thought that we could make an invite that would reflect her style so those attending would get a feel for what she likes. This train paper from KI was just too perfect! My favorite part it the mini button brads from making memories in the corners of the stripes.

This week has been really busy at work.... and I can't wait for the weekend! No big plans for Halloween... I think when we have kids I may be more into it. Instead my brother Andrew and his girlfriend Jess are coming over to make dinner with us... and then the girls are going to do some serious scrapping!


PS: Today is my other brother Sean's birthday! Happy 25th b-day Sean :)
