Catching Up

Recently I completed a set of Bar Mitzvah invitations for my nephew Alex.  He's an Ohio State fan, so we went with red and grey double matted invitations.  Pictures will be up soon!

I am beginning to work on two sets of First Communion invitations.  I'm working with silver and white with one client, and possibly silver, blue, and white for the other.

Ladybug Party!

Carol asked me to make invitations for her sweet daughter Candy's third birthday party.  The theme was ladybugs, and as she's done in the past, Carol gave me the green light to create as I pleased.

These are very simple single-matted cards with a lady bug button embellishment.  After the ladybugs were nestled on the cards, I thought they needed a little extra something.  I thought loopy flying dashed lines would finish this off perfectly.

Thanks, Carol!  Hope that Candy Sue has a sweet third birthday party with her family and friends!

New Tag Invitation!

Sarah stumbled upon Toasted Glitter while searching for tag invitations online. 

Sarah and her friend are hosting a baby shower in a few weeks, so turn around time was key.  We selected two colors of textured cardstock, and discussed the text.  Since the mom-to-be is traveling a distance after the shower, the tag invitation was a mimic suitcase tags  Sarah let me go from there--and this is the result.

The tags are sage and pink.  The front of the tag contains the details of the event.  The back of the tag is covered in the same sage color paper.  I used two different ribbons to finish off the look.  Finished size of the invitations are 6" tall by 4.25" wide.  A small insert card was included that gave registry information.

Sarah received her invitations today and was very pleased with the results.  Thanks, Sarah!

Snowflakes for the New Year


I found this glittery lace cardstock and knew it'd be perfect for this New Year's Eve party invitation. I combined it with bling'd Bazzill and used brads to keep it all together. And, just like snowflakes...each one is a bit different!

Thanks, Elayne!

Pocket Invitation in Pink

Here's another sample of a pocket invitation. The client wanted pink, pink, and more pink for her daughter's Pinkalicious birthday party. These pocket invitations are made using textured Bazzill cardstock, pretty pattern paper, and vellum.

Pocket invitations lend themselves to so many different events. Cute birth announcements, birthday parties, "save the date" notices (imagine the engagement photo on the front), moving cards...the possibilities are endless. Email me at toastedglitter[at] for more information, including cost.

Lucky Me tags

Dawn Marie is a friend of mine, and she has a neat line of purses, key fobs, and other accessories. I love the purses, and I am a fan of the key fob. It slips right over my more digging in my purse.

She asked me to make tags for her fobs. I made a bunch and put them in a clear glass jar from IKEA. I love her colors- hot pink, black, and white.
