It's Party Time!

I think I'm still in shock that its February! I seriously cannot believe it, haha! Today is the first Tuesday of the month so that means the Stamp Tramps (aka the SSD Design Team) are back with a new Guest Sketch Artist, Belinda Chang! She'll be joining us this month and has given us some fabulous sketches! Here is this weeks sketch!

Now, I haven't been the best rule follower when it comes to sketches, so this week I focused really hard on staying true to the sketch! I even incorporated the star instead of changing out the shape! How proud of me are you? ;) Well at least I'm a teensy bit pleased with myself anyway, ha! :)

I used Blocks and Borders Swirls for my celery layer, and then Chic Martini for the martini glass and sentiment. I think this would be a great layout to use for party invites. It has interesting layers, yet you can keep it fairly flat for mailing! I could have used a cardstock layer and kept it flat, but I added a bow on this one since I don't plan on mailing it. Jake's birthday party is coming up soon, so I think this might be the one I use to hand out to our friends. ;)

You can even dress up the inside! All the stamps in the inside here are from Chic Martini. How fun is this set?! I lined up all the Date/Time/Place/RSVP stamps on a block and stamped them all at once. This makes quick work of getting everything ready! Then I decorated the edges with the olive, star, and a sentiment from the set.

I don't know about you, but I would love to get a cute invite like this in the mail for a fabby party! I sometimes get so caught up in just emailing or texting friends for a party that I forget how fun these are to make and receive!

Be sure to check out the other "Stamp Tramps" and our guest sketch artist to see what they've come up with!
