The weeks between Tess's birthday and Scarlett's feel so short! Especially when you factor in back-to-school, which I learned (a bit painfully) this year. Busy, busy. But so many fun things, so I hate to give anything up. I even squeezed in one last summer dinner party. No wonder I'm feeling a bit loopy!
So I am trying to get all the details ready for Scarlett's party and wondering which to give up. But I didn't give up the invitations--as you know, invitations are one of my favorite things. Plus, as I learned again with Scarlett's, creating the invitation really helps me focus the creative idea for the event. Gives me even more ideas, which can be a problem too!
Scarlett's party is what I'm calling, "prairie cowgirl." I'm imagining a horsewoman with some feminine flair and more calico than cactus. Floral patterns and galvanized and a little bit of burlap thrown in too.
I wanted to use kraft colored paper for her invite and was wishing I could print using the spot color white when I thought of printing the invite on a giant label and affixing it to the kraft card stock. So that's what I did. I love how it worked! I used Avery Shipping Labels (8126) and The Greengrocer's Brown Bag Paper cover stock and envelopes. The envelopes have a fun flap, don't you think?
So the invites are off and I'm off to the other things. Wishing I had some sewing fairies...
