Baby Shower Invitations - Ahoy! It's a Boy!

I can't believe it's already the second week of December! Christmas is only 13 days away, and I'm so excited to spend some quality time with my family, and eat my fill of Turkey and other foods I only get around Christmas time. Unfortunately I haven't been working on too many Christmas-y things lately. I'm slowly getting into the later weeks of my Project Life, last week I finished up some baby shower invitations (which I'm sharing below), and I've been working a bunch, trying to get the house slowly decorated for Christmas. Last week we put up the tree and a few decorations, I'm still trying to decide what I want to put up and where I want everything. I'm so indecisive, but since we don't have anyone coming over for Christmas, it doesn't really matter.

Here's the adorable baby shower invite. They went for a whale/nautical theme. I'm so pleased with how it turned out, and not to toot my own horn, but it turned out amazing! Considering I don't have photoshop, or any other editing type program, I made the text portion in Word using a bunch of text boxes so I could position the text exactly where I wanted it. It was time consuming, but totally worth it!

A close up of the little whales. I cut them using my cricut (which I haven't used in what feels like forever). I was originally going to do one, but it was too empty, so I put two.

A close up of the anchor, and wheel strung on twine across the top half. Originally I wasn't going to use the eyelets, but I felt they were important to help the twine from pulling too much on the hole.

A close up of the paper texture mostly. I love the dots embossed on the blue paper. It adds to the nautical/whale theme!Thanks for coming by to check out these invites! I imagine there will be more of them coming in the future!

Have a great day!
