Be Inspsired # 47 Cuttlebug Challenge Invitation

It's the kickoff to the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog's Birthday Party Palooza!!

Nearly every day of September there will be a new post showing something exciting about a birthday party. Each of us (you, too!!) chooses our favorite theme for a birthday party, and go from there!!

Today's CHALLENGE is to create your INVITATION to your party!!

My theme is LOLLIPOPS and this is the invitation that I designed.

For my lollipops I used the Accent Essentials cartridge for my Cricut, with Design Studio, and rounded an oval swirl to create the right shape. I also used this same cartridge for the background circles. I used the New Arrival cartridge for the You're Invited bubble, as well as the welded words at the bottom. I chose the D'vine Swirls cuttlebug folder for embossing the yellow Core'dinations paper for the background.


Be sure to check out the rest of the design team on CuttlebugChallenge to see what their themes are, and what their invitations are like. Then create your own invitations! There are prizes for the invitation winner, blog candy random drawings for comments left on the blog, as well as randomly left on designers blogs, AND there will be a GRAND PRIZE drawing among those who participate every week during the month, including the chance to be published in READY, SET, CREATE Magazine! This is going to be so much fun, and we are aiming to have at LEAST 100 participants! Get your friends to play along, too!!!


All of the details are on

I can't wait to see what themes you choose! When the month is over, this will be the biggest resource for birthday party ideas anywhere!!! Won't that be awesome!!!

Thanks for playing along. Be sure to sign up as a follower, or subscriber, so you don't miss one single post of this exciting month!

Happy crafting ~
