I'm feeling bad that I haven't been able to participate in challenges other than for my Design teams lately but here's why. I promised to make Baby Shower invitations for my dear friend Leah (BeeCherryLady on the Cricut message board). I am a notorious procrastinator and known to change my mind numerous times when designing a project besides being an EXTREMELY slow crafter so there you go! Fortunately Leah wanted to help with assembly so they are now finished and in the mail! WooHoo!
I've been sort of stuck on the popped mat with scalloped frame design for awhile and wanted to do that for the invitations. The striped mat is cuttled with Swiss Dots and I used the Argyle folder behind Boo. The adorable bear die is "Boo on his Bum" made by the UK Co. GoKreate. He is available at The Scrapping Cottage which is one of only two companies carrying these dies in the U.S. However, after doing the prototype we realized that by just popping Boo's head and feet it was still cute and really saved on time, money (for the bazillion dimensionals), and extra postage. "A Baby Shower" is from the Cuttlebug Baby set which I cut twice for a shadow effect and the bottom mat is scalloped with my threading water border punch. Bo is exhaused from overuse and plans to retire for awhile. Trust me, no matter how much you like a design, 26 is alot of one thing to make.
My sweet kitties surprised Mommy with a new printer for Mother's Day so I was determined to figure out my Greeting Card Factory program and print the inside in matching blue matted with yellow. Forgot to take pix but I couldn't have done it without it. Mama loves you Goliath and Jezebel (Daddy too)! xx
