More Birthday Invitations

Last week I was asked by one of the girls in the shop next door if I could make some Birthday Invitations for her son's up coming Birthday (she had seen the party invites for Lauren)

Originally she wanted the same triangle design but with Dinosours on them, but then realised she had to post a few so this design wouldn't work.
I told her to leave it with me and this is what I came up with.

These invites actually open up and all the details are inside.
She was really happy with the outcome!!

My challenge should I accept....

A few weeks ago, one of my regular customers who I have made quite a few projects for her daughter's kindergarten class over the past year came in and asked me to make some Birthday Invitations for her daughter Lauren who's turning 4.

When I asked what she had in mind!! she said that she had asked Lauren earlier and her response was.... had to have trianlges...favourite colour is green...and it must have a Seal on it !!

Right!! .. a Seal???

Story behind the Seal is that for her birthday she is getting a very special kiss on the cheek from a Seal at Under Water World (I think), so it all made sense!! Kinda!

So I told her to leave it with me and let me see if I can come up with anything..
so below is what I made using all the things Lauren requested.

A Birthday Invitation with a Green Trianagle with a Seal on it! simple!

The Seal came from October Afternoon's Seaside Collection Stamp Set which I happened to have on the shef!! Lucky!! the ball idea I came up with.
The 3rd panel (which I didn't take a photo) is where they will write on the details of the party.

When they came in to see the sample, Lauren was really impressed! Let's hope the other 25 kids like them also!

Birthday Card and Mojo Monday Challange 172

I've been a huge fan of Mojo Monday's for a few years now, but I've never submitted a card before and most weeks I'm never organised enough to actually get them done in time before the challenge actually finishes.

I save each week's image and when I get a chance I go back and actually do them. But this week I was organised!! And you will never guess but I was 1 hour late in uploading my image to my blog and I have yet again missed out on submitting my card!!

Anyway, I made this birthday card for my niece Zali's who's 3rd Birthday was last week.

Cardstock: Bazzill Smoothies Range: Berry Sensations and Coconut Swirl
Pattern Paper: Kaiser Craft Mumma Bushka (old)

Other: Nestabilities: Lacey Circles and Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Copic Markers: E50, E00,E17,E18,R81,R83,YG17. Clear Spica Pen

Although I missed out on submitting this card on the Mojo Monday Challange, but I am going to submit this card to the LaLa Land Customer Challange.

Project Life...

Most people who know me know that I started my creative journey as a Scrapbooker. But over the years cardmaking has certainly taken up more of my time then Scrapbooking. I still love taking photos and I keep telling myself that I will get around to finishing some albums but there just never seems to be enough time or hours in a week do this.

I started with Creative Memories and was even a consultant, but soon realised that there was a whole other world out there to do with Scrapbooking, and much bigger than Creative Memories.
One of my favourite Scrapbookers was and still is Becky Higgins. I used to order magazines and books from America if Becky was published in them and I also had her Creative Fonts that she deisgned. Over the years I have still followed Becky and loved her regular articles in Creating Keepsakes Magazines, and more recently started following her blog.
Last year she released a Scrapbooking Project Kit called Project Life. I really thought long and hard about getting this and thought this would get me back into scrapbooking and maybe get some of my thousands of photos off the computer, but when I opened Creations in Paper, unfortunately this project got pushed to the back of my mind!!

Anyway, on New Years Eve when I was home sick and laying on the couch blog surfing, I thought I'd check in and see what Miss Becky Higgins was up to and her Project Life Project Kit came up again.

Scrapbooking has certainly changed over the years and I would still love to be able to get in and finish albums but for me what I think has caught my eye with this is the simplicity of the whole idea and it is a start for me to get back into Scrapbooking.
I followed the link to the Supplier of Project Life for Australia/New Zealand and I have ordered my Kit. I know the year has already started but I am waiting paitently for my kit to arrive so I can make a start.

So what is Project Life?Project Life simplifies how you document life and preserve memories. Simply pair your photos and journaling with the striking, pre-designed components from the kit and you'll end up with a stylish masterpiece that represents your life or whatever occasion you choose to record. With Project Life's beautifully simple, all-inclusive format, deciding what supplies to use will become obsolete, leaving you more time to experience life.

There are 2 Kits to Choose from:

I have order the Turquoise Kit. I will be back when my kit arrives to show you more... Jules
