Bridal Shower Invites

Posted by emileehathaway on March 19, 2009

Last weekend my Mom came over to help me make these.  (Thanks Mom!)  We are throwing a bridal shower for my brother’s fiance and this is what I came up with for the invites. 


I probably could have done a better job with blanking out the address and phone number on this picture, but this is what you get … sorry!

Anyways … I really like how they turned out.  What do you think? 

They are relatively simple, but when you have to mass produce them you don’t want anything too hard to make.  I also must say the Cricut is totally worth it!  I have used this thing a lot lately!  I used it to cut out the flower embellishment. 

Have a super day Ladies!  I am super excited for tomorrow!  I think I might go to the Scrapbook expo and it’s my 5 year anniversary.  Should be a really nice day!

Stamps:  None
Paper:  Barely Banana, kraft, WW
Ink:  None
Goodies:  Eyelet punch, Cricut machine, Walk in my Garden Cricut Cartridge, brads, ticket punch, ribbon

Missing in Action

Posted by emileehathaway on March 16, 2009

Where has she been?  First off, I’m sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted, but it’s been quite the month!  We have been SO sick!  I had one of the worst colds I have ever had and Kyler got sick too.  His temperature was up past 103 and he was coughing so hard he couldn’t breathe.  Not fun!  And life as usual has been busy.  And in the middle of all of that, my baby turned 2!  It’s hard to believe that Kyler is 2, but he is and oh so proud of it!  He walks around all day saying he is two and holding up his two little fingers!  Super cute! 

Here is a little project I made for his birthday.  I used my cricut to cut almost everything out.  I just cut the pennets out myself, but the scallop, circle, letter and trucks were all cut with the bug.  I used 4 different cartridges, for the trucks I used New Arrival and the dump truck part I used the shape from the George cartridge.  I used Base Camp for the letters and numbers, George for the circle and Mini monograms for the scallop circle.  I do have to say, that I love how it turned out.  My inspiration came out the SU catalog, I saw a mini sign that just said BABY and I loved it thought I would expand it to say Happy Birthday Kyler!  I used brads to hold it all together, and eyelets where we tacked it into the wall.


Here is a close up for you …


Well, I hope to be back later this week to show you what else I have been busy working on. 

Catch you later!
