First Birthday Invitation and Banner








I am currently away camping and boating with my kids and hubby, at a lake we have never been before, so I hope my blog is up and running correctly :)

For my first project I made 60 of these cute little 1st Birthday Invitations for my friends daughter. Her birthday is at the end of the month, hard to believe she is turning 1!!


The background paper is from Echo Parks "Hello Summer" line which is perfect for her invitation
I cut the background paper at 5.639 using the Celebrations Cartridge
The middle pink paper has a scalloped edge to it and was cut at 5.167 using the Celebrations Cartridge
The blue background paper was cut at 4.639 also using the Celebrations Cartridge
The number 1 was cut at 2.722 also using the George Cartridge
I added black lines to the 1 to give it some added detail and printed the party information on it using my printer and then loading it into my Cricut and lining it up so it would cut perfectly! 
 For the lady bug and dragonfly I used the Doodlecharms Cartridge 
The lady bug is cut out at .931 and I added black diamond stickles to the body and added black dots for the eyes
The Dragon fly was cut at 1.292 and I added stickles to the wings for added detail
The Flower was cut at 1.5 using the April Showers Cartridge

For my next project I made a matching banner for her highchair


I used the same Echo Park "Hello Summer" paper
For the banner I used Country Life Cartridge
Cut at 5" x 6.125w
Inside banner layer I cut at 5.514w


I AM was cut at 3.181 using the Cherry Limeade Cartridge 
The number 1 was cut at 4.097 using the George Cartridge


The dragon flies are the same ones I cut for the invitation just bigger
I tied green and white checked ribbon
