Invitations...

This weekend I've spent some more time in my scraproom.. YAY!!! And you know what I've done?? Well, I've created 11 invitations for my niece's 1st birthday next month. My sister didn't have an idea what kind of invitations she wanted to send out.. soooo.. while blog-surfing a little while ago I found an amazing idea on Jennifer McGuire her blog!!! It looks kinda simple... but it's so much fun to create!!!!!

I started by ordering this little collage 15x15cm (almost 6"x6") which I've created in Adobe Photoshop Elements. I've used 1 picture per month so people can see the changes of my little niece.


I created a little 'window' in the collage by cutting 3 sides of the middle picture, to be able to flip the window open... I added a little poem behind the window (printed on white paper)...


Then I adhered the collage to a piece of 17x17cm (almost 6,7"x6,7") to create the little white border around the collage.


I ended by adding a chipboard '1' (I wrapped a little piece of floss around it) and a little Prima flower with bling, to the middle picture.


Unfortunately you cannot see the details too clear... but I can asure you that the invitations looked so cute all together.. and my sister loved them too happily.. Can't wait to hear what the receivers will say about it.. For me it sure was a fun little project to work on.. hehe..


You still have until tomorrow to play along for my little workshop, I'll pick a winner on Tuesday! I've seen so much fun cards passing by again today!! I'm so excited to see everybody's creations here!! Thanks for making my day!!!

XOXO
Nancy

OMG! Those little cards are sooo cute! Ta soeur devait tellement être contente! J'en reviens pas comment le temps passe vite... Moi, je suis dans un down d'internet, de scrap et de digi scrap... Ça fait un bon bout de temps que ça dure.... J'espère retrouver le goût de scrapper sous peu.... Je vais tenter de visiter les blogs plus souvent, ça va peut-être me redonner le goût de scrapper...

Bon lundi et bisous,

Valérie xox
