Party Invites!

I am finally happy with what I made...(thanks to my mom and her clip art!) She emailed me a few dogs from the clip art she has on her computer and that is how I came up with the basic shape for the puppy. It was a simple shape and I was able to sketch it. I made a template with cardstock for the head shape and the ears and just traced them onto the brown cardstock. Cut them all out and started the assembly. I wanted to use these Heidi Swapp polka dot file folders that I had left over from our April 2008 kit (and this way I didn't need envelopes also!)
Hmmm...another Heidi Swapp product! The "sweet" ribbon. Some of the invites had aqua loops underneath...and others had white. Just for a pop of color (and that loopy paper is a sneak peek of what's to come for November!)
One with white...very girly. We invited some boys too so the aqua ones went to them. Although when I handed it to one of the little boys at Sunday School the others were teasing him about his "girl card." Oh well. I couldn't help myself with those pink polka dot folders!

The inside of the folder...and yet another Heidi Swapp product (the little Saturday journaling spot.) Again, I coordinated the loops on the tag with the puppy to match what was on the cover of the invite.
And a close up shot of the puppy...which I used pop dots underneath the tag to pop it off the folder. Very cute. (Cuter in real life than these photos show.)
I will now embark on making party hats for the party-goers. More puppies to cut out!! Although I am planning to purchase the solid colored hats at the party store and just embellish them. We are so excited for the party! My family is coming for the big event and will be here this week. So if blogging is sporadic you will know why! LOL! I will be back to share the finished album I worked on at the crop this weekend tomorrow. It turned out cute too! Hope you all had a great weekend!
