ヾ(๑╹ꇴ◠๑)ﾉ” Annyeong haseyo. How’re you today? Me? I’m having a quiet day after having to hoof it 2.51 miles after my bike chain decided to break.
After seven weeks and no blogging, I’ve decided to come back before September is over. During those 49 days I’ve been keepin’ quite busy. I originally was going to whip out one long post but I’m going to spare you and break it all down, one post per day.
The birthdays kept coming (To enlarge, click on the pictures.):
These four are my favorites and some of my best work:
I am obsessed with the ways Tim Holtz distresses his tags and gets that vintage look in the end. I’m slowly adding to my supply of distress products every chance I get.
This was the funnest card to make:
This is the wiper card. The recipient pulls the edges outward and the inner surprise pops up.
Now I have to be honest here…I wasn’t completely offline. Whenever I got restless or felt artistically challenged, I went on Pinterest. Case in point: Cupcake’s birthday invites.
I’ve been chewing the fat with the tween on how to celebrate her 13th birthday in October. Her February birthday girlfriends had last-minute dinners somewhere and then played elsewhere. I didn’t want to have a party at the trampoline gym because I didn’t want to have to deal with having to buy all of this food and having to lug it somewhere, etc. So originally we thought to eat at Bonchon and then get dessert crepes. The only problem is not knowing how crowded they’d get on a Saturday. So after consulting the CFO, he approved of the idea to have a dinner at a restaurant where I could make reservations in advance for a large party and then we’ll have cake at our house.
Well of course I had to design her birthday invites right? Six designs over two to three days and lots of poring in Pinterest led me to finally choose this one:
I made wiper card invites. I figured, why do I have to
make use a new design card format every time I make a card? Once I got the design down for each part, it was assembly line time of cutting, stamping, embossing, distress inking, and gluing. The back has the 411 parents needed to know which was typed up printed out for that side. It took me two days to finish eight invites.
Well, that’s it for now. I hope your Tuesday is going well and you have some yummy dinner recipes lined up for this evening. We will be having bone-in pork chops with mashed potatoes and Caesar salad. TTYL. Annyeong kaseyo.
