Quick! We need to make 91 Baby Shower Invites...

We need to make 91 Baby Shower Invites...
and mail them out tomorrow. Well, that was last week. And we did make 91 baby shower invitations in a little less than 2 hours. And they did get mailed out soon thereafter. My friend Michelle, the one who's sister is getting married (those are the wedding invitations from a few posts ago) was in charge of "doing" the invitations for an upcoming baby shower. And time got away from us and all of sudden, we had to get them done. Michelle almost gave in to just printing some on some paper. WHAT? No way! ;)

So, we kept it simple. And she and I are pros at the assembly line. We work well together. I do the computer stuff (get the wording printed out just so) and all the math and cutting :). She does most of the stamping while I'm doing the cutting part and then we do the assembly together. Hey, that doesn't seem quite fair does it???!!!! Actually, it's fine and it works well. And we have a great time doing it, which is all that matters to me.

The honoree is having a baby boy. We needed some kind of embellishment and we didn't want to tie 91 ribbons. Or punch eyelets. Or brads. Or... you get the idea. Then I remembered that I had the old retired Stampin' Up! Diaper Pin Punch. Yippee! Perfect.

We used all Stampin' Up stuff... the dilly dally jumbo wheel, the retired diaper pin punch, Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery. BAM! DONE! We didn't have a lot of time to make them extra detailed but they still are HAND MADE and I'll pick that any day over store bought! What do you think?

I think they are really cute, and I agree -- much nicer than store bought too! Great job on getting them done so quickly. You girls must have been rockin' and rollin'! :D Kelly
