busy hands


Hooray for a craft-happy weekend! There's nothing that keeps me more content than having busy hands. I am super excited to be able to plan a church baby shower for Erin {our pastor's wife}, and of course whip out some handmade invites for such a special event. When I happened upon a tiny, darling button stamp at my local Paper Source, I had instant inspiration: The shower theme is Cute as a Button. Fun, huh? Can't wait to post pics of the affair itself!
Thankfully, I forced myself to keep the invites super simple, since I'm making mass quantities!
A new adventure for me in paper-crafting: envelope liners. They're so easy to make yourself, even without purchasing special templates. (I just peeled apart the envelope and traced myself a pattern.) Don't you think liners make everything 10x more fancy-schmancy?
