Hello everyone!
Today I wanna share some birthday party invites I made a couple weeks ago for Anna’s 18th Birthday party!! Yeah…18, I’m still in denial! LOL
Anyhow, I had the 12×12 Primas “Nature’s Garden” paper collection I wanted to use. I LOVED side A of the collection. Side B was a little too purple and gray for me, although the images were exquisite! 🙂 
Thanks Jodie Lee for the awesome design! It’s a favorite for sure!!  So I used this collection for the 12 invites and also used -3- 12×12 sheets I punched a border design on them for the cake and present table
….it was so pretty!
I recycled 4 glass Starbucks bottles. I saved about 8 of them, but used 4 and they worked great for small flower arrangements on the cake table!
Let me apologize that I don’t have the video tutorial for these, I really wish I could have had one but this was during the time when I had no internet and had 2 laptops in the shop and I was stressed. When I finally had some connection I did a search on Pinterest and found an awesome picture of a card that totally inspired me!!! AHHH, you guys, this lady is so talented, her name is Anne and her blog is mesmerizing! 
You must visit her at “Anne’s Paper Fun” she is a
