I have taken a short hiatus from the holiday crafting to work on something on the to do list... invitations. I can't believe my precious little munchkin will be a year old in just two months! Oh boy oh boy it goes by fast. I am getting nervous thinking that her party is right around the corner that I have done lots of party planning this week. Mainly just brainstorming.
I have made some progress on the invitations and I am so excited to share! The other day I decided the colors will be a Suess-y red, blue, and yellow [yea a little boyish but oh well!]. I looked at a ton ton ton of invites thanks to google photos and decided on this look and wording:
I still can't believe I actually pulled this off. I decided since there was so much color the black and white Cindy Lou needed to be colored in too [not an easy task folks]. It isn't completely finished because it feels like it needs more glitz and glam [or maybe I have been watching too much toddlers and tiaras hehe] but I love the way it looks so far. Cindy Lou's head is a little odd but the bow embellishment will cover it right up. I am thinking about giving this as a freebie, if only I knew how to post the picture in 300dpi so it doesn't lose it's pixels when editing and printing.
Maybe one day I will figure it out. But I wish the design would just come already made and I can just print in the writing like with these really cute shower invitations I made today for my friend Kathryn. I love that they came with this really cute sleeve and we both fell in love with the print.
The inside paper isn't just plain either, it has a very nice design on it! I love Gartner Studios invitations. I actually used their invitations for my own wedding. Aren't these so cute?! I got them at Target on sale.
Plus, they came with these little cards that were meant to be reply cards [since these invites are meant to be for a wedding] but I already have a plan for these little cuties.
I love print your own invitations. They come out so cute and you can't beat getting 50 invitations for $20!
