Masquerade Party Mask Invitations

Published May 30, 2012 by pinkpossibilities

Today I am going to share some photos of my newest invitation I recently made. They turned out so dang cute.

So start off with a basic mask shape and cut it out.

Once I had the base mask, I then traced it onto a piece of copy paper.

Now because I wanted to make sure they fit the envelopes I have for them. I took measurements and then drew a box around the mask so that I would know how much room I had to work with.

Here is the fun part, the design. I first drew it out in pencil. Then when I was happy with the design I drew it in with a black marker.

Once the drawing was complete I created a die cut for it and started cutting them out.
This mask had 2 layers of color. the first layer (which was done in lavender) was laid onto the base mask.

Then the 2nd layer (which was done in a dark purple) was layered on next.

Now you can go crazy or keep it simple. I took gold glitter glue around the eyes. (i know it’s hard to see this step), then added bronzed mica fragments over the right eye (this is made by stampendous) and last but not least added two rhinestones, one on each side.

Ok it wouldn’t be a real invite without a place to put all your info. So I cut out yet another piece which mirrored the base mask but bigger.

Glue your mask onto the white piece and fold over. You can now add your info to the inside.

Here is a shot of the final invitation. Isn’t it just lovely. I have had so much fun working on this one.

Building a Lego City

Published March 26, 2012 by pinkpossibilities

Ever since me and my hubby have been married we take a trip around our anniversary date and always buy the newest lego building. so now that we are in a place that we can build it a proper home. (inside my office’s walk in closet that is.) So we have been using date nights to be together and build. I will share pictures through out the process until our city is finished. Here are some pictures from our 1st night building our pet shop.

The first couple of shots are just of the pictures on the outside of the box.


then we got a little crazy and dumped them all out.





This building set was awesome, it had lots of animals and fun designs on how they built furniture and such. they even have a toilet on one of the floors.

We were both in Lego heaven. Stay tuned for a photo of the completed building and more shots of the next building .. which is the emporium.
