Polka dot birthday invitations

It's hard to believe, but I'm already planning the big 1st/3rd birthday party we're throwing for our boys.  (The perk of having birthdays 4 days apart is mom only has to plan one party!)  Although it's all very exciting and I love party planning, it breaks my heart how fast the time flies. 

Anywho, I finished the invitations tonight.  I don't like cheesy themes like Disney characters or the typical boy stuff like trucks or bugs, so I decided it's going to be a polka dot theme.  It might lean towards girly, but I'm limiting myself to primary colors, so I think it will be a perfect fit. 

I found supplies at (where else?) Michael's, by (who else?) Martha.  I think they are just adorable.

This is the first time I've made invitations like this.  I used scrapbooking supplies to make one and now I'm going to take it to the printer to have it made into a double sided 5x7 cards.  Hopefully they turn out just right and I can stick them in envelopes and send them out.  Otherwise, back to the drawing board.  I don't have it in me to make 30 invitations!

And...ugh.  This is what happens when you have a million projects going at once and don't clean your work space!


  1. Oh my, look at you go! My boys need a craftier mom...

  2. Cheryl! They look SO awesome! I am popping over from SITS and I am totally LOVING these invitations! Very fabulous indeed! Great idea about making one and then going to the printer. Smart as can be! I love smart girls!

  3. I love the invitations. What a clever Mom you are.

    Just stopped by from SITS to say hi; hope you'll do the same.

  4. I am just loving your blog. I'm going through it and having so much fun, lol. I'm a BIG party fan so I'm looking forward to seeing what you create for this party with your talent!! Also, you may be interested in a Spy Secret Agent party I did last month. It's up on my blog you just have to scroll down near the end of the main page. It's PERFECT for boys! Can't wait to see this one!

  5. PS I don't like cheesy themes either. ;)

    I'm sure these invites were a hit!


Thanks for visiting!
