Cupcake Baby Shower Invitations
So, I have had a busy week. I made 70 Cupcake Baby Shower Invitations for a friend. I wanted to share with you how I made them and some tips for how to make so many & not get board with them.
Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge
Button #4 All Layers Cut at 4.5"
Sweet Cupcake-My Pink Stamper Stamp-Everday Life Stamp Set
Inside Stamp - Martha Stewart Stamp
To make so many effectively I layed everything out on my gypsy as close as I could. Each layer I put as many on the mat as possible for an 8.5"x11" paper. I used 2- 8.5"x11"paper packs from Michaels to create it. The pinks were from the Butterfly Wings & then also the Black & White Pack. Because I was cutting out so many, I even titled each layer- how many pages I needed to cut and what color. Then I pulled out that many pages & cut all of that layer and then moved on to the next layer & repeated the process. After I had everything cut, I started adhering them in sets of 10. By working with sets of 10, I didn't get tired of any one step. It was also a great way to keep track of how any I had done. I finished them off with the cherry, a dot of stickles, and the Sweet Cupcake stamp. I have to say that My Pink Stamp Stamps are an amazing quality photopolymer stamp. I stamped it 70 times right on the invitations & never messed up. It looks so clear & crisp. I use Stazon black ink with it & it looks amazing. I was so suprised that I was able to complete them from start to finish in 2 days (along with my normal responsibilities around the house).
I hope these tips help you know you can achieve a large project without being overwhelmed by it.
Just break it down in to steps.
Then after I finished them the soon to be mother had a 2nd ultra sound and found out that she is having a boy. So now I will be creating Baby Invitations with the monkey from Create A Critter.
At least they know other ladies who are having girls that can use these invitations.
