I am Sarah, a stay at home mom of two wonderful, little boys. In my life before kids I was a fifth grade teacher. I now work with first year teachers, which I love. Creating is one of the ways I stay sane. I become very cranky if I have not stamped or scrapped in a while. Join me on this creative journey.

Baby Shower Invitations


I have to say I don't just like these invites, I LOVE THEM! Don't you just love when you create something super cool (in your own opinion, of course) Anyway, my friend is having a baby and we are throwing her a shower. She swore after the first that she was all done, she gave everything away (we have her crib) but 6 years later she is expecting! The directions for the criss-cross card are on Splitcoast. Here is one thing I learned. The directions used double sided designer paper. The paper I used was not double sided, this became a problem when you cut the dp in half diagonally to adhere to both sides. (does that makes sense?) What I did was used removable adhesive and attached the two different dp together and then cut them diagonally in half. It worked! If I didn't explain that clearly and you want more info just let me know. The designer paper is Making Memories, I found it at Michael's. I think I bought all they had. :) Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
Supplies: All SU except the designer paper
Stamps: from a 2004 SU set
Cardstock: Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories: 1 1/4 circle punch, 13/8 circle punch, scallop circle, tab punch

What a very cute & clever shower invite!! I just had a baby shower, but I was in charge of the favors and games. I did make a cute favor though! Handmade invitations would have been nice.
