Well, they are, and our super awesome design team has put together the most impressive line-up of invites for you today. Let me warn you, this post is picture heavy, but I just couldn't resist showing off the details! ENJOY!!!

Birthday Blast! Invitation and Thank You Note by Patti

Supplies Used: Blast Off! Pattern Papers – Aliens, UFO, Stripe, Blast Off!, Arcade, Galaxy and Stellar, Blast Off! 12” Chipboard, Blast Off! Jewels, and Blast Off! Stamps

Designer's Notes:
-When you’re making multiple invitations, keep the design simple and use supplies that allow you to easily recreate your cards exactly or with a little variation. Many of the images used on the invitation and thank you note are cut from pattern paper. Adhesive foam is used to add dimension.
Get a head start on the Thank You notes by creating them along with the invites.
-Add a glass finish liquid to the spaceship windshields.
-Print out your invite and thank you information on plain white cardstock. Then accent the printed cardstock by stamping the Blast Off! images in silver ink and coloring portions of the images with a coordinated colored pen.
-Other: glitter glue, clear glass effects liquid, adhesive foam, silver ink, yellow stamping marker
Computer fonts: TBLcd font – free download from the internet:

Invitation by Romy

Supplies: Vicki B. 6 x 6" Paper Pad, Vicki B. 12" Sticker, Vicky B. Jewels, Vicki B. Dimensional Stickers, Vicky B. Wrap.

Designer's Notes: I made this card for my grandparents, to invite them to go to a Dutch flower park with me. The Vicki B. collection has some very pretty flower embellishments and text stickers, which were simply perfect for this kind of an invitation.
