When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

Luau/Hello Kitty Birthday Invites

I started working on this project since June but I stopped in the middle of it.  I honestly thought that the birthday party will not push through anymore.  But then things changed and I decided to finish up the invites couple nights ago and it took me 4 nights of no sleep.  Seeing the result though made me really happy.

I'm also trying to save money on the projects since I'm the one who is paying for it.  I used Colorbok cardstock stack that you can get from Walmart for $4.  It maybe cheap but the colors are so vibrant and for me it is one of the best cardstock for cutting using Cricut machine.  I made a total of 50 well detailed Hello Kitty/Luau birthday invites. 

Here, I'm so proud to share it them with you...
50 sets of invites and envies.  What you see in the picture was just half of the total production.
I used 7 different colors for envies.  The colors are just so vibrant!
Also made 7 different colors for invites.
A closer look on the actual invites...
A simple printed insert.  I used MA Sexy and 1942 report fonts.
I used the CTMH Cricut Cartridge Art Philosophy bundle for the labels and CTMH stamps for the sentiment.  I so love the CTMH cartridge. It eliminates the need for you to buy those dies and punches that matches your stamps.  If I were you, I would get hold of one...

That's it for today.  These were all my projects that I haven't posted and/or accomplished the last couple months.  I know I've been MIA for quite awhile but hopefully I'll get back to doing at least one crafting project a week.  

Thank you for stopping by.  Take care.  Until next blog... Have a happy weekend peeps!

Hello again, I tried to email you back but for some reason I font think you received it. The date of the party is August 18, 2012 the color motif is Luau Style Colors, bright pink, turquoise, yellow, orange, green, and purple. I really like this invitation because my daughters cake is a 2 tier cake with a sculpted out Hello Kitty with a flower in her hair instead of the now that she normally wears. And the quantity I would need is 25 but if I need to have more in order to order through you I will order more than. Please get back to me at your earliest convenience. My email address is islandbabygirl23@yahoo.com and if you could please provide me your email address also so I can communicate with you easier ;) Thank you again, Chanda

Thank you for your interest in ordering these invitations but unfortunately we are currently based on a craft deprived place. No way can I possibly get the materials locally. Again, thank you...
