Baby Shower Invitations

My Daughter-in-Law K is expecting our 4th Grandbaby in a little over a month (a Girl!) and recently she wanted to make some handmade invitations for her upcoming Baby Shower.

She really likes Owls, so she asked me if I had any cute designs I could use from my Cricut Cartridges to help her make them.

We found three really cute owls, one from the Create-a-Critter cartridge, one from the Nursery Tails (Imagine) cartridge, and one from the Imagine More cartridge.

I made a lot of samples using different colors and patterned pieces and put them together for her to choose the one's she liked.

Once I finished all the owls, K and her sister completed the invites using cardstock solids & patterned papers and printed the text of the invitation on K's ink jet printer.

Here is the finished product...not bad for a couple of amateurs!


Of course, I have to give most of the credit to K and her sis.

They are just so awesomely creative and they come up with great ideas!

Here are a few close-up shots of  some of the invites:



I really love the adorable patterned paper that K and her sis picked out...I can't remember what brand it was, but I will have to find out, because I'd like to get some!

I'm having so much fun with my Cricut Imagine and am finding lots of ways to make it useful!
