Cute As a Bug Baby Boy Shower Invite

This is such a cute invitation! Planning a shower for a mom expecting a boy? Check out this cute set. The details are customizable and sayings can be added with room permitting. This sample, I kept it simple.

The baby bug is hand stamped and colored then adhered to the flower. Then the flower is adhered with foam squares in order to provide a 3-D effect. The green vine in the background is also hand stamped on the white card stock.

Another great thing about this set is that matching cupcake toppers and thank you notes are also available! Need favor tags, the baby bug flowers will make adorable favor tags too! For more information or if you'd like a custom invite for your upcoming event, contact me!

Back to School!!

With school buses roaming around the neighborhood again, school is in session and the activities pick up! Every since having my little one, I'm always in need of a thank you. These notes are great to have for a teacher thank you, a coach thank you or even a mommy helper thank you!

I love the color combo, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive. The turtle is hand stamped and colored. The inside is left blank for your own personal note of gratitude! Old Olive card was dry embossed with large dots providing texture to the card.

This set is available at my Etsy shop. Thanks for stopping by!

Add a special touch with a mini note!

It today's economy, customer service is key! We need to make our customers special and let them know how much we appreciate their business. I've designed a few handmade mini thank you notes for internet sellers on places like Etsy and Ebay to include with their customer's order.

The above design is just one example of what I've come up with for a customer. These cute notes measure 2.5" square and are perfect to add that extra special touch to an order. Each is hand stamped on white card stock and adhered to the same color card stock.. In this case, Perfect Plum, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry. These would also make great tags for party favors too!

Interested in a custom thank you note, contact me! I'd be more than happy to come up with a unique design to match your shop or event!

Pottery themed Baby Shower!

Recently, I received a special request for creating a baby shower invite with a pottery theme. At first, I was nervous. How was I going to come up with a pottery themed baby shower invite? Then my wheels started to turn and I knew I was up for the challenge. I asked my customer a few questions and voila, this is what came to me!

The shower is for a girl, so of course that determined the pink theme. Since I not been to a pottery store in awhile, I wanted to make sure I understood what exactly the guests would be painting. Plates, ceramic tiles, mugs and more. Perfect! So here's is the outcome. Loved to hear what you think.

I loved the challenge and my favorite part was I was able to hear about another special event being thrown and create something to fit that occasion! The details for the shower will be printed out and adhered to the inside. Thanks for stopping by!

From Daddy's Lil' Monkey!

My husband's birthday was last week and I was so excited to finally try out a punch monkey. We call our little girl our little monkey since she loves to climb all over the place.

I CASE'd (Copy and Share Everything) from a talented stamper over at Splitcoast Stampers. Unfortunately, I can't remember who to give credit too. My husband loved it and once I figured out the dimensions, this card was pretty easy! Happy I was able to put a smile on his face for his special day!

Dasher Christmas Card Set

Here is the first Christmas card set that I've made! I'm trying to gear up for the holiday season which is quickly approaching. It's been a little challenging since it's been so HOT lately. I'm trying to cool off and get in the Christmas spirit and thought I'd share my first creation for this season! This card set is one of many that will be listed over at my Etsy shop
The front of the card is dry embossed with snowflakes giving the background texture. The reindeer is embellished with red grosgrain ribbon giving him a little something special!  The sentiment, "Merry Christmas" is popped up with foam squares providing the 3-D effect!

The inside of the card reads, "Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful. - Norman Vincent Peale".

I have a few other ideas brewing for more sets, so stay tuned. Thanks for stopping by. Feedback is always welcome!
