O is for Octopus!

My Cricut Craft Room

The letter of the day on  Erica's Craft Room is O, so I created this Octopus Birthday Invitation for my goddaughter Olivia using Life's a Beach and 3 Birds Straight from the Nest

Olivia is turning 1 in May and her favorite toy is her stuffed Ursula doll from The Little Mermaid. Her party theme is going to be under the sea. Olivia's mom asked for simple invitations, so this is what I came up with. I have to make 80 of them (Olivia has a BIG family). I sure hope I have enough paper!

I cut the Octopus out at 3" from Life's a Beach, and added this party had from Straight from the Nest a 2".

Then I added the word party to the card at 1.5" This cut is also from Life's a Beach. I'd better get started on the rest of these, her party is only a month away!

Happy Crafting.

  4. Love this octopus, well I have a love /hate relationship with the word Octopus. When my first granson was born he wasn't saying grandma, I kept trying and trying, I held up a toy octopus and he said "octopus" but he still wouldn't say grandma! LOL that is a story that is still being told 11 years later.
