Teepee Baby Shower Invitations

I have a dear friend who is getting ready to be a grandmother for the first time and she asked me to help her make some baby shower invitations. Her family is Native American and she really wanted to incorporate that into the shower and the invitations.
The card does fold and fits into a standard envelope for mailing.

I used the Autumn Terracotta cardstock from Close To My Heart. I love this cardstock because it is thick and sturdy, perfect for this project!
For the month of February, you can buy two packs of this cardstock (any color, including multi-color packs) and get an embossing folder free!

Box card

I have been seeing these box cards, and have been dying to try one! I found the tutorial at Split Coast Stampers. This was so easy to make, thanks to the great tutorial video! I used the Close To My Heart Huntington patterned paper (retired) and Autumn Terracotta cardstock
When folded it looks just as amazing!
I can't wait to make more once I get the hang of it!

Altered Journal

 I've had this journal in my stash for a while, just waiting to be altered. I used the Skylark paper and embellishments, which I love!
I used a stamp from my stash to stamp the background with Gypsy ink and the Cricut Artbooking cartridge to cut the frame and trim.
The patterned paper is Skylark and the solid colors are Lagoon and Sweet Leaf cardstock both in the Skylark Workshops on the Go.
I love all of these colors, they remind me of spring, they are so bright and colorful.
