I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be serving on the Celebrate the Occasion Design Team for the next 6 months! We have two excellent teams, and we hope you’ll join us in celebrating the occasions that make life amazing!
Now, I have to say, I didn’t really think that I was going to be selected as my entry is relatively simple. I made these for my cousin Leah’s upcoming birthday. She’s have a slumber party at the Shoals Marriot. Nine years old and wanting to have a slumber party at a 4 star hotel spells trouble for my aunt. I can’t imagine what she’s going to ask for when she turns 16.
Anyway, I used Simply Charmed to cut out the cute ice cream cone and since my aunt calls Leah, Strawberry, we’ll say the pink represents strawberry ice cream. Between me and y’all (Your eyes are not playing tricks on you, I am from Alabama after all.), I personally think that’s a ridiculous nickname, but whatever. What’s next - pistachio, cumquat, rhubarb? I digress!
Here are the details:
- White A2 Base
- DCWV Purple
- Paper Company Green, punched with Martha Stewart Loop Punch
- DCWV Black (Cone base)
- Paper Company Kraft (Cone)
- Paper Company Cream (Cone highlights)
- SU Real Red (Cheeks)
- Doodlebug Designs Plaid Paper
- Pink 3/8” Offray Satin Ribbon
- Sakura Gelly Roll Stitching
- Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
- Fiskars Simple Stick All Year Cheer Stamp Set (I love that they’re rubber, but I can use them on a clear block. They stamp great.)
Again, it’s a pretty simple card, but I would love to share with everyone how I type the insides of my invites with Microsoft Word. If I can get a tripod and figure out the logistics of shooting tutorials, I think that would make for a good one as it’s not hard to do and it would come in handy, I think.
As always I thank you for taking time out of your day to come by and read my rambling! Comments are always welcome and I would love it if you stopped by the blogs of my fellow design team members and showed them some love!
Have a blessed day!
