Baptism Invite, Witness Pins, & Other


This was my second son's baptism invitation. I used Create a Critter 2. The theme was lions since my son's name is Leonidas, which means lion in Greek. The color scheme I went with was a light boy blue, with a nice cheery orange. I absolutely loved making these invitations, and I was extremely happy with the way they came out.


These are my table arrangements for the reception. I made a little over a dozen arrangements for the dinner table. I found an adorable pin on Pinterest to make these from: (I will need to find the person who I got this idea from and post it here-Coming Soon). To sum it up. I cut 1x1" squares of coordinating fabric and them lightly pressed them in the Styrofoam ball with my Martha Stewart Embossing Tool. They were hit! Everyone wanted to take one home.


These are the party favors. I made each box with Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More 2 Cricut Cartridge. I was up till 3:00AM assembling these babies! It was a LOT of work, but I loved them, and best of all our guests loved them.


I made 100 witness pins (also known as Martyrika). I followed my color scheme with alternate ribbon color: Navy, Light Blue, and Orange. The baskets held the witness pins and party favors.

Bachelorette Party

These are invites for my sister-in-laws' friend's bachelorette party. The colors are: Tiffany Blue, Hot Pink, with Lilac color accents (you can't see the lovely colors, since I forgot to take pictures of my finalized project, and I got these from my Instagram account.) I plan to make lovely banners to accompany the invites-coming soon. If you flip the "spa invites" over, it will have all the party information for the girls "Spa-aah Getaway". We got this idea from a pin on Pinterest from One Charming Party. We used this as inspiration and with the Cricut Girl's Makeup Party Cartridge, we made it into a Spa Getaway for the brides friends!

Masculine Birthday Card

My father-in-laws birthday was today. And so I made him a little card. My son wanted us to make him a boat card;  "because papou (grandfather in Greek) loves fishing and boats." I used Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge; Fiskars birthday stamps; wood grain Cuttlebug emboss folder; Michael's seaside cardstock and sea green Reflection ink. I also tried a new technique (for me), where I sewed waves with my new 'We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy Starter Kit'. I loved using this new tool!

Valentine Flower Wreath

This is one of my first projects that I made when I got my Cricut Expression 2, in Christmas 2012! I used two Cricut cartridges; Giant Flowers and Flower Shoppe (I LOVE these cartridges and use them a lot).
I curled the petals with a Martha Stewart Embossing Tool Set that I purchased from Michaels Store. There are some wonderful tutorials on YouTube by some talented women on how-to curl petals.
