Disney Princess Party Invitations

Happy Friday fellow crafters

Boy am I glad this week is OVER! I had some days off from work and when I got back on Tuesday it was crazy! So much work piled up... But YAY! it is Friday and the weekend is almost here. I wanted to share with all of you today some invitations I made for my daughter's third birthday party coming up in a couple of weeks. Right now she is totally into dolls and princesses. I think this is so funny because I call here "Princess" all the time and now I really do think she thinks she really is a PRINCESS! And she acts like it too! LOL!

So she has decided that she wants a Princess Party with a castle cake. Thank goodness my friend is making the cake because I don't bake and have no idea where to even start! LOL!

So my daughter Kayla has make it very clear what she wants her party to be like:
1. Princesses must have them everywhere
2. Everyone has to dress up like a Princess- this is going to be great because all of her cousins are boys- not sure how we will pull this one off yet.
3. She wants a Castle cake with Princesses dancing around the outside of it.
4. Everything must be purple and pink
5. There needs to be candy at her party- thought this one was cute!
6. And her brother Cooper- has to be there (which of course that is a given, but she made sure to point it out LOL)
Ok, so I will be making items for her party and showing them as I finish them, so here is what I made first...Her Invitations
I used Happily Ever Atfer and Dreams Do Come True Cricut cartridges and these are all cut at 4". I must say this was the first time I have used these carts and what a pain in the a......  They are so hard to cut out because there are so many little pieces. Finally, I gave up on the eyes and just colored them in. And the lips--- geez they are so little it kept ripping my paper. So after 3 hours of putting 6 cards together I told Princess Kayla that she could only invite 6 friends... ( Anyone want to buy these carts? I will give them away...LOL Just kidding but I totally wanted to throw them across the room while I was working on this!)
But Kayla was very happy with how they turned out and was very excited to give them to her friends at school today.

I've struggled with these carts too. I've only made the princesses once and may never again, unless they're Fit To Page!

Adorable party theme. My daughter when she was younger attended a Princess Party in which they had to dress up also. There were no boys at the party though. My daughter wore a dr4ess she had worn as a Flower Girl in my sister's wedding and then later for her Communion. I went & took photos. Now my daughter is 20.

Yeah... totally hate the Disney carts! I made 80 tinkerbell invites in december and it was a horrible experience. For her birthday card, I didn't even want to touch the cart again so I just printed one off the computer and colored with my Copics. Even 80 of those would've been easier!
