You’re invited!


Happy, Happy 10th Birthday Scrapbook & Cards Today!  It's going to be an exciting celebration and YOU are invited to come along and join in the fun!

Before a party starts, an invitation is extended, yes?  Well, here is yours…complete with streamers, polka dots, sequins, and balloon!


I love creating party invites, and have a few simple steps and tips for you today explaining the process behind today's invitation.


I love starting with a fresh, white canvas…makes the colors pop!  I have used the new Hello Gorgeous collection from My Mind's Eye.  I selected two Hello Gorgeous journal cards, one that I cut to fit behind the chipboard frame, and the second to place in the background to bring in some polka dots and color.


I then rounded the corners at the bottom of my card and stamped my sentiment from Paper Smooches.  Near the top, I tucked in a die cut file tab behind my journal card.  These little items are among my most favorite accents to add to my cards.  I love the simple pop of color they add in just the right places.


To finish my card I added some die cut flowers near the upper right corner and layered a chipboard balloon from Crate Paper over my chipboard frame.  Sequins and an enamel dot were used as finishing touches.  These lovely white sequins are from We R Memory Keepers and come with adhesive already on them, so you just peel and stick.  They are my favorite!


Let the party begin!  Join us at 10:00 am! I can't wait to see what's in store.
