Monday Morning

Hey everyone, hope your weekends were great. I have had a head cold most of the weekend, but still managed to have a good time for the most part.

Today I am posting the invitations I made for R & K's birthday parties.
This is K's invites.
I made this in a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 so that I could get four out of each 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper. This is a cardboard looking paper that come in a paper pack I've had forever. I scalloped the edges of the green paper with my SU scallop edger, love that thing! I cut the circle in with my CM cutting system. The white cardstock is actually from a pack I got at Walmart in the printer paper section. Its white cardstock and lots cheaper, great for cards and such! The dino stamps are from CTMH, love them. I colored the dino in with my SU watercolor pencils and blendy pen. "You're Invited" is from the dollar bin at Michaels. Tiny brads are from Hobby Lobby, got them 50% off on sale, I think 2.49 for six different kinds, all metal finishes.
Wasn't an extremely quick card because of the fussy cutting of the dinosaur, and all the different pieces, but turned out pretty cute I think!
FYI: From time to time I will posting deals, good websites, etc. on my blog for different scrapping supplies. I will put these in green, so make sure to check for those to save some of your green!
  • Michaels has their Cricut cartridges for only 39.99 this week, if you have the ad, Walmart should price match that as well.
  • If you need pictures printed, and who doesn't, check out for some really great deals, including 1200 free prints during your first year membership. Shipping is reasonable and they have some really neat photo gifts as well.
I will be making what I hope will be my last Creative Memories order, before I switch to Close to my Heart, if you need anything ordered, please let me know asap. I will also be cleaning out a lot of my leftovers, so anyone who does place an order will be receiving some freebies from me with their stuff.
I am going to challenge you all to create something this week...anything at all, and send me a picture. I will post the pics on here so we can all inspire each other. Even if you don't think its amazing, it may help someone else to be inspired. Let me see your stuff! Email them to me at
Hugs to you all,
