Happy Happy Happy

I've been having a hard time with birthday cards of late. Normally birthdays are where I excel. Weddings are the killer for me. I am yet (barring one) to make a wedding card I really really like. It's like the pressure gets to me or something.

I need to go back through my blog and find examples of cards that I've done and really liked and use those ideas for birthdays and weddings. I have to remind myself it's not terrible to use a design I've already used. It sounds silly to say out loud but there you have it :)

Oh happy day (indeed!)

This was from a friend's birthday months ago. Sometimes I get sizing wrong. Cupcake should have been larger. It's a fine example of how idea and execution are two different things.

Aug 14th Stamp

This is for our Save the Dates. Stamp made from rubber 3M adhesive stuck on a large tile. I made this for a test but then we really liked it. Our Save the Dates aren't very formal. OK actually nothing at our wedding is going to be very formal.

Thank You Card

These are the thank you cards I made for the surprise engagement party. (I'm engaged!)

I took an already really pretty card (I will find the name of these later in that I can't remember) and I cut a circle at one side. On the inside, I glued down a pretty piece of paper that coordinated with the outside (like the purple polkadots.)

Then I glued in a string. On the string I had another tiny piece of card stock that read "thank you."

One note: Originally I was going to use a punch to make a super clean circle but I ended up having to cut them by hand because the punches only go in so far. Also, next time instead of thread to hold the "thank you."

Oh hello there

So I have been absent for awhile, but while away my hands have been busy. Crafts await!
