Bush Dance Invitations

Hi everyone! I am back today to share a quick project with you all. I seem to be the go to gal for handmade invites lately and everyone from my church and all the school mums are giving me orders LOL it is overwhelming. Today I have some Bush Dance 40th birthday invitations to show you. Ok so I wasn’t 100% sure what a bush dance was but trusty Google jogged my memory and I have come up with these akubra hat invitations using my Silhouette Cameo Machine.

The cardstock that I have used is a variety of Bazzil, Kaisercraft & other brands as you can see, I did not have enough of the same colours so have varied them up a bit but I think they turned out great.

That’s it from me today, I know such a sad little post but I will be back with more tomorrow but until next time, happy scrapping!

Baby Shower Invitations

Hi everyone! I am back to quickly share some invitations that I just made this week for a fabulous lady at church who is expecting her 3rd bubba. With moving etc I thought I wouldn’t get these done in time but alas, I started Thursday night and got them finished yesterday thanks to my beautiful friend Nicole who was here for lunch yesterday and helped me sew the buttons together.

To create these invitations, I have used my Silhouette Cameo to print the details on the inside then to cut the duck shape out. The duck shape came with the beak as a seperate cutout but I decided that I wanted to use it as a wing instead and you can hardly tell it was meant to be a beak right? LOL love improvising as I go.

The cute eyes are some fabulous Flourish with a Bling Pearls in Chocolate and the patterned paper I have used is from Simple Stories Baby Steps Collection. I chose these papers because they are super cute and fun but also because they are gender neutral. Although there is pink and blues it is very subtle and the gender of this particular baby is not yet known.

The final touches on the ducks was to add some inking around the edges using Ranger Coffee Coloured Archival Ink and then some buttons and twine and voila! 30 gorgeous little ducky Baby Shower Invitations ready to be handed out.

Aren’t they just too cute? I already have another order for Giraffe Baby Shower Invites so keep an eye out for those.

Until next time, happy scrapping!
