Here is a little about my project...I did little invitations for a Cookie Party! The holidays are all about cookies and baking and being in the kitchen with your friends and family. Every year we make cookies that you roll out the dough and paint them with food coloring and egg wash and they are soooooooooooooooooo fun. I did it when I was little with my mom and now owen and do it, too. My mom would let me have some friends over because we did 100's of them so I do the same with owen and we have some friends come over to help. I thought these would be perfect for them and they each get their own cookie cutter.


I used the hohoho set and the Funky Alphabet sets. I stamped the reindeer right on the patterned paper and then I stamp the alphas on the back of the Core'dinations Cardstock. The front is white because it is from the Whitewash collection and the yellow is the core color that comes through when you sand. I love how the burgundy ink pops off that yellow and the Funky Alphabets are soooooo fun to cut out!


On the inside, I printed the recipe...


another Close up....I used Webster's Pages patterned papers for this project.





Now on to Tracey's wonderful blog to catch more fun ideas for all kinds of parties! Don't forget to leave a comment on each blog to be eligible for our blog hop prize! Good luck.
