Well howdy everyone!
It's a Texas Summer alright, complete with humidity and West Nile Virus carrying mosquitos!
But, I like summer, yes I do.
Time to splash around in the pool and camp outs and fishing and well...you get the picture.
This week is my daughter's baby shower. I've been busy planning that and so many other things (as usual). But I wanted to share with you the cute invites I made. So simple and inexpensive.
I started off by buying and downloading a gorgeous digital paper pack from a wonderful blogger I admire over at
I also got the fonts from her :)
She inspires me so much!
Here's what you'll need:
pretty patterned paper
I started off by designing my invite in publisher
I wanted it to be simple but classy
My daughter's nursery colors are soft green and yellow
I made the font in a soft grey
and the baby carriage is a clip art
When I was satisfied I printed it on my cardstock
and cut it with my paper cutter
I then punch rounded my corners
I sized it so that it would be slightly smaller than the patterned paper
The patterned paper was cut so it could fit in some envelopes I had on hand.
Then I simply cut some ribbon, made the little bow and glued it with a glue pen onto the cardstock.
I did the little registry tags on publisher as well on business card paper :)
the font is called "fancy" font from Jones Design Co.
(I blurred out my personal info)
Sweet and classy :)
like my daughter
and her baby...
