I love parties ~ here are the invitations...

Bridal shower invitations are done and ready to be mailed (x 34).


I'm a fortunate girl. One of the (many) perks in my life is that I live close to Scrapbooks, Etc. - a scrapbook store owned by the same family who owns Bazzil Cardstock. They have pretty much every color and texture of cardstock and when I go there I'm like a kid in a candy store! Seriously? I could scrapbook and craft with nothing but textured cardstock for the rest of my life and I'd be happy!

Hopefully you can see the texture in the cardstock in these invitations I put together. I'm so happy with the combination! The white is standard texture, the black strip is embossed with a beautiful swirly design, and the red for the hearts is dry embossed (raised design) - perfect for a Valentine themed party!

There's a party happening at my house in a few weeks!!!

Life is good.

They do indeed look gorgeous - and very sophisticated! If I was Krissie, I'd be so thrilled.

What absolutely beautiful cards - and I am so envious of your close proximity to the Bazzill Shop - you can never have enough colours or textures of that luscious stuff.

Mom said...

Very, very nice! And I can totally see the textures/designs. When we go there again, I'm going to buy one sheet of every piece of paper they have! Well, maybe. Anyway, love that store and can't wait to go again! BTW, all you other bloggers--Deb is an expert at matching up colors, patterns, etc! xo

Oh, wow - they look amazing :-)

PS Love the jam tart idea - I bet you could cut pastry hearts and use them to line the cupcake tin before adding the jam x
