Luau Birthday Invitation

My youngest daughter turns 7 in December. I can not believe that 7 years has gone by so fast. She was almost a Christmas baby and so for her birthday this year she got pretty creative. This year we are going to have a Luau!! I have been struggling with an invitation. I always go pretty elaborate on creating invitations but there is so much I want to make for the actual party that I wanted to go simple but still have a cute invitation. I was searching around on the Internet and saw a grass skirt invitation. It was super cute, simple and I had everything I needed to create it.

The inside of the card says

"Grab your grass skirt or
Hawaiian shirt and head to...
Madison's Birthday Cabana"

I am feeling under the weather so I am posting a fun Fall Wreath that I created last year. I saw this great idea on You Tube using paper to create this beautiful fall wreath, so I just had to try it!

You will need:
Cricut: Speaking of Fall cartridge (pg 31 in 3" and 5", pg 50 in 6", 8"and 91/2", pg 54 in 4" and 6")

Foam Wreath

Wide wire ribbon ( I ended up using a whole roll for mine including the bow)

Fall Scrapbook Pattern Paper

Hot Glue Gun

Brown Ink


First you will wrap your wreath in the wide ribbon. I hot glued mine one to make it super simple. You could also pin it on. Then I cut out my leaves out with my cricut in several sizes and inked all the edges. Once all my leaves were cut out and inked I then adhered them on my wreath with hot glue. This seemed to be the fastest and simplest way to get them on. When placing them on my wreath I started with my larger leaves then filled in with the small ones all going in one direction. Do this until your wreath looks the way you want it. To be able to hang my I created a loop with the ribbon and hot glued that on the back. I also created a bow with the extra ribbon and hot glued it on the front of the wreath. That it! A gorgeous hand-made wreath that all your friends and family will love.

My BLOG CANDY will be a brand new roll of the ribbon I used on this project. To enter to win 1.) Become a Follower
2.) Leave me a comment
I will pick the winner on Monday morning. Good luck!!

IMAGINE: Thank You Card

I just received my free Lori's Garden Imagine Cartridge in the mail from Provo Craft. This was the promotion item that they had for Cricut Circle members when you purchased the Imagine on the HSN launch. I did not think I would like this cartridge but it has some beautiful images on it.
