Pirate Birthday Party Cards

Posted on

Hello Friends!

My grandson just turned 3 and his birthday was all about Pirates!!  I had so much fun making his party invitations a couple of weeks ago and this weekend I made thank you cards to send to his friends. Enjoy!!

The card base came from the Cricut cart Pirates and Mermaids and the other images were from various cartridges that came up when I did a search on Design Space.

Here is the inside of the card.  I’m so glad they will be sending thank you notes. I think this is sadly becoming a lost practice these days.  Am I sounding like an old grandma?  LOL!!

Below are the pirate invitations I made for the party.  I posted these a few days ago, but thought you might like to see the invites and thank you cards all together.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I’ve got to scurry off now to get ready for the pirate party.  I sure don’t want to have to walk the plank if I’m late…. Arrrrrgh!!   Laurie


Pirate Birthday!

Posted on

Hello Friends!

Today is my grandson’s third birthday!  He lives near the ocean in Florida so a Pirate themed birthday card and party was perfect for him!  When he was just a few months old, his nickname was Captain Finley because he sometimes used to slightly close one eye, giving us the “pirate eye”.

These are the invitations for his pirate themed birthday party that will be held next weekend.  I used a bunch of different images that I found on Design Space when I searched for “pirates”. That’s just one of the many things I love about Design Space!

The following photos are of Finley’s birthday card.  I made a tri fold shutter card, again with the pirate theme.  The paper is from Echo Park called Pirate’s Life and the cardstock is from Close To My Heart.  I love to make this type of card since it has a lot of options for embellishments and it can stand on its own for display.

What a blessing it was to witness the pure joy and excitement of a little boy turning three!  I’m so lucky to be spending time with my son and his family this winter, even though I don’t have quite as much time to play with my paper!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I so appreciate you!!  Laurie


Party invitations

Hello friends!  I am checking in on the blog today to share some party invitations.  I created these cute pocket invitations using Cricut Design Space, CTMH stamps, and my computer and printer.  The paper is from an old pack by K&Company that I have had for a few years.  I used Word on my laptop to type the details of the invitation and then printed them onto white cardstock.

The invitations were made for a hostess to use for an upcoming Norwex party I have scheduled.  I think the postcard invitations from the company are a bit bland, so I created these to give the impression that a cleaning party with Norwex is actually fun!  I will be able to customize the invitations to reflect any theme a hostess plans by varying the paper, colors, and ribbons.  My goal is to show guests that they are valued and worth the extra effort needed to make special invitations!

Have a great weekend!  Linda
