Baby Shower Invites and Favors

I hope you are all having a great summer. I had such good intentions to have new projects to post every couple of days for the entire summer... but you know how good intentions can sometimes get a little off track... So now I am just hoping to have a few projects to post for the rest of the summer..

Before the craziness started, I was asked to make baby shower invitations for a very good freind of my daughter. Of coarse I was thrilled and extremely flattered that she liked my stuff well enough to ask me :)
So I made a couple of different samples for her to choose from. Here are 2 of them.

The directions for this pocket card can be found at Splitcoaststampers.  All card stock is Stampin Up. Stamps used are Stampin Up, Papertrey Ink and one from Micheals. I embossed the white with a cuttlebug folder and used Stampin Up punches.

This was such a fun project ! The directions for the side step card can be found at Splitcoaststampers.
Paper is Stampin Up and DCWV. Cruicut cuts fron Nates ABC's and Nursery Rhyme. I think the stamp is Stampin Up. I entered this project in the Cooking With Cricut Challenge #41.

My next post will be the favors I made for her to choose from. Then I will show you which ones she picked and I made 40 of each :)

As always thank you for stopping by :)


  1. Love them both! How will she decide????!!!

  2. Oh these are darling! I must admit, I'd pick "Special Delivery" because it is not only precious but it is unlike anything you can buy!! Don't get me wrong, the pocket invites are very sweet - I just think the other one is amazing! Can't wait to see which one was picked :)
