Before and After Crafter

I have a fun new series to share with you my crafty friends. Many times I search for inspiration while out and about, it can be a vintage plate or a fabric flower decorating a handbag. I decided to take all of those ideas and put them to good use, by recreating my inspiration with my paper crafting supplies. Fun quickly followed! Are you a before and after crafter?

This is the inspirational prompt, a greeting card from Carlton, I snapped a picture and planned to make a set of invitations with the Cricut expression and Create A Critter cartridge. Of course the revamped version is much more detailed, but maintains the original whimsy of the card.

I have a mix of papers on these one of a kind invitations, a little SU, some Pink paislee, and a touch of K&Co. I sponged and glittered the cupcakes and popped the squirrel up on foam tape.An embossed card base is a subtle yet pretty pop of texture.

As a special kick off to this new series I will be selling this set of eight invitations including envelops for 30.00 plus 5.00 shipping and handling.First come, first serve. Contact me frougirl3 @gmail.com

Shantaie, this is the best CASE I have seen in a long time. I should say "new & improved"! You totally maintained the fun and whimsy, but kicked it up a few notches, Shantaie style :)
