Inspire-Me Tuesday~

I may or may not have mentioned it before, but I have a bit of a love affair with paper. I love stationery of all kinds. I have an obsession with scrapbook paper. I love to create with paper. Paper. Paper. Paper.

The Princess turns 6 on Friday. So we are in the throws of creating a Fancy Nancy birthday party. Normally, being the paper-obsessed person that I am...my favorite part of throwing a party is creating the invitations. SERIOUSLY. One of these days I'll share a few of my creations... But, while browsing in Target, I ran across these darling invitations by Anna Griffin. (The girls can wear them...)


And I did a first a for me. I purchased invitations. But seriously, folks, these little crowns are perfect for Fancy Nancy invites...I admit, I did add a little glitter glue to look like gems, but other than that...perfection.

So, just for fun, I looked up the Anna Griffin website. If you love paper...or fabric...or just eye candy...pop over. And her blog is wonderful too.

Now go forth, inspire, and be inspired.


AND DON'T FORGET TO ENTER THE DRAWING (ON MONDAY'S POST ONLY) FOR THE LOVELY CROWN NECKLACE. DRAWING ENDS WEDNESDAY!

Oh, I looooove scrapbook paper, even though I no longer scrapbook! I use it for making cards and other decor around the house. I can go a bit crazy when it's on sale. Thank you for sharing Anna Griffin's blog!

The Fancy Nancy party is going to be adorable, by the way.

I love paper too, all kinds. I love that wall of paper on this post...maybe one day.

My name is Lisa and I'm a paper junkie.

I think I'm responsible for the death of many trees, as well as reviving the scrapbook paper industry in south Georgia.

And I don't even scrapbook.

I am a paperaholic too. I frequently browse the scrapbook paper aisles, and have quite a collection, even though I don't scrapbook! I know I'll use it for something, though...

Amy said...

We used Anna Griffin invitations for my daughters wedding. They were beautiful and everyone commented on them thinking we'd had them custom designed.

I too have a love affair with paper and unfortunately, I scrapbook. Very slowly because I'm too much of a perfectionist. lol

Oh, I am a pretty paper fool, too! I want it just to have it near me, just to look at. I don't always do things with it...I just want it.....sigh.

Ooooh! Love Fancy Nancy! I wish she had hit the scene 6-7 years ago! My baby girl is too big for that now. But Mama's not!

Law Wife said...

I was in love with Anna Griffin's wedding invitations when I was planning my wedding. My mom and I decided to make invites ourselves though! :)

Pretty Organizer said...

Sigh.... Wouldn't organizing furniture be great. I mean something that looks like it was Made to House what you're organizing. How come I always have to "invent" a piece of furniture. Hubby says that true designers can create on a tight budget... it forces their creativity. Sometimes I'd love to try the "other side" - just buy something because it looks good.... Great post girl.

Hey, it's on, announced and you're linked up. I already included you on the list of Rock Star bloggers coming to the event!

Have a super Day!

Sherri S said...

Love the way you added just a hint of glitter. The crowns are TOTALLY adorable! I would LOVE to have that in my craft room/studio too! I call mine the Inspiration Studio! Ha!
Will be dropping by often. Love your Inspire-me-Tuesday posts.
