Mickey Mouse Baby Shower

You can't go wrong with Mickey! It's one of my son's favorite shows. I made these on MDS. The Mickey shape was actually created by piecing together a big circle and two smaller ones (using the punch tool). I struggled with the stripes. I didn't like the bottom half with the stripes at full color, but I didn't like it plain red, so after much back and forth I decided to do a red background paper with the stripes at a really high opacity. I like how they are subtle, but still give the background some interest.

I have a wedding invitation I will be able to share next weekend and just submitted three more invitation orders to be printed (two birthday parties and a baby shower), so watch for those in the upcoming weeks!! I've been pretty busy and I love it.

Polka Dot Birthday

This might be one of my favorite birthday invitations I've made yet! These were for a polka dot birthday party and I love all of the bright colors! I used MDS, as usual, to create everything. The "1" is a clip art that I found online because I couldn't find a font thick enough, even when enlarged, to fit the info in. I think playing with fonts and using various fonts on the same project is one of my favorite things to do!

How fun do all of these look together?! Perfect for a little girl's first birthday!

Birthday Thank You Card

Isn't he adorable?? These are the Thank You cards I made for this birthday. They were very simple to make and that's how Landon's mom wanted them. I used iPhoto to blur out a balloon that was in the background, then inserted the photo into MDS and added the text. I used the "picker" color tool to match the text color to the icing. Once they were printed I rounded the corners and voila! The picture speaks for itself!
