It’s been a little while since I’ve posted a project. It’s been a super busy year and 1/2 for me and my family. Lots of life changing things, it’s been a blessing although hard but we know there’s a plan in place!
One of the many things I‘ve been doing to stay busy lately has been creating shower, birthday and wedding announcements and invitations! I’ve got several yet to post but I’ll share this one today! You can see some of the invites I’ve already made in the past going here.
I’ve got an Accucut die of the Onsie shape and it’s the Pinnovation die which is awesome to help to place your sheet of paper down and the pins hold it in place so that you can use a Microsoft Word template to add your text and cut so it shows up in the die cut shape! It’s AWESOME!!! So, this is what I used for my nephew and his fiances baby shower invite. She saw one online and asked if I can make it just like it, so of course I did! This was my gift to them and this is what it looks like!
Here’s my video where I introduce the invites:)
She chose a gorgeous tiffany blue color, it’s actually called “Pool” and is an American Crafts textured brand cardstock called “Weave”!! I did LOVE the “Powder Blue” but of course….I had to use what Monique wanted! 🙂 lol… All 3 are very pretty!
I had 12″x12″ AC cardstock, cut 50 sheets down to 8 1/2″x11″ then I downloaded the Onsie A7 template from the Accucut website and typed out all the info, printed them all out (2 per sheet), set them on the die between the pins and cut them up….then viola!!! INVITES!!
I bought some white satin ribbon (double sided) and made 100 tiny bows and 3 packs of crystal bling for the snaps then….
I loved the font they chose, (Lucinda Calligraphy) it was a perfect fit!! I was so happy and proud that they all loved them!! All 100 of them!!!! I always make one extra and seal it so that mama or bride can add it to their keepsake box or baby book! I think it’s important to make sure they also feel special! I also had a few 12×12’s left and edge punched them for table settings and used my heart and butterfly punches to punch out from the scraps I had left….they’ve used it to gently toss the bits of confetti onto the tables for extra decor! If I had more time I would‘v made a banner and other things! Maybe for the next baby:)
This is one of my favorite invites to date! Now whenever they set a date for their weeding I’ll be expecting them to call and say, “Tia, would you make our wedding invitations”!! I’ll be super excited to make them too!!
