Not only does September mean back to school, but it also means Sage's birthday. And while her birthday isn't until the 19th, she doesn't want to have her party on a Wednesday, so it's either the weekend before (so, this next weekend) or two weekends after, because I'm busy with my Crop for the Congo on the weekend after her birthday.
Not being a patient girl, she picked next weekend. ;)
We went down into my craft area yesterday afternoon to make some invitations. I let her pick the colours (pink, pink and more pink!). We were originally going to have a sewing theme, but have now changed it to a crafting party: we'll be making felt flowers for headbands and some door-hangers. But, in the theme of sewing/crafting, we decided to incorporate some of these elements into our invitations.
Here they are:
We used Papertrey Ink cardstock (vintage cream, raspberry fizz), stamps (button boutique, simple sentiments) and dies (button boutique, button-up). The patterned paper is Echo Park.
We made five in all, but they're all pretty similar. Sage did the diecutting and the stamping of the buttons, as well as poking out the holes in the diecuts. I did the trimming, adhering, stamping of sentiment/frame) and sewing. It was a good team effort!
Thanks for looking!
