Invitations

At the end of last week I sat down to design the invitations for Lily's Bug Birthday Party.  Here's what I came up with...


I used Stampin' Up!'s "Bugs & Kisses" stamp set for the cards, and folded the envelopes out of scrapbook paper in the same design as the fabric swatches I showed you before.

Over the weekend, Heather (Lily's mom) and I assembled twenty matching invitations and envelopes.




Heather is new to stamping, and was a little intimidated - but she did PERFECTLY!  In fact, she ended up doing all the stamping (every single one of those colored bugs!) while I did the cutting and assembling.  I think the insides of the invites look really cute, too!


We had a lot of fun chatting, stamping, and assembling, and I think it made both of us even more excited for the party!

Those are the cutest things! Am I too old to have a bug party just so I can be that creative?

Those are sooo adorable! Can't wait to see what else you come up with.

And I love that yellow dot paper you used underneath- very versatile!
