2012 New Year's Brunch Invitation

Every year we have a brunch on New Year's Day that is the best party of the season. Everyone is done shopping, cooking, cleaning, and stressing over the holidays and just sit back and enjoy a vast array of comfort food and good company. It's early in the day so the older relatives and friends don't worry about driving at night.

This year's invitations were inspired by the old time pocket watch. I printed the insides on my inkjet printer on ivory cardstock and then cut them to size.

I bought digital stamps from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff and printed on ivory card stock. I used Sure Cuts A Lot software to design a cut out of the watch so I could cut them all on my Cricut. The faces of the watches were colored with Copics to create the shadows and then I embossed the gold parts.

The background gold paper is Gold glitter card stock from Best Creation Inc. I bought it at Archivers and love that it doesn't shed glitter all over everything. It was really easy to work with.

Snowman containers

I made these darling snowman containers using files from SVG Cuts. I filled them with a holiday Chex mix that is coated with white chocolate and gave them to my staff as a part of their Christmas gift. They were super easy to make and fast!
