PPPR Guest Designer

Hello and Happy Friday!!
Today I have the great honor and
pleasure to be a Guest Designer over
Lisa has the most adorable files
and every Friday she has a fabulous freebie!!
For my project today, I made invitations.
My nephew will be turning 30 on
October 7th, so his wife is having
a big Oktoberfest Themed
Birthday party for him!!
When I did a search on Google
I was pleasantly surprised to find that PPPR
had a fabulous Oktoberfest  cutting file.
This was perfect for my invitations.
I first made 2 different samples:
She loved both of them, but
we decided to go with the
Oktoberfest Ticket!!
We changed up the colors to
match the rest of her decorations and
here is what the final result was.
I usually like to paper piece my images
but since I had to make 40 invites.
I used the print and cut feature
on my Silhouette Cameo
to cut the Oktoberfest Banner
and the Beer Waitress!!
The ticket was a cut from
the Silhouette Store.  I used
the sketch pens to draw the
inside ticket layer and

Here is a close up.
I used a marker to outline
the beer foam because there
was so much white.
I added pop dots to the waitress
to give it some dimension.
Here are all the details
of the party on the back.
I made an internal offset
and once again used the
print and cut feature to first
print the writing and then
cut the inside layer.
I added a little bit
of inking around the edges.
Here is all 40 of them lined up!!
My nephew and niece loved them
and I hope you do to!!
Thank you Lisa for allowing
me to be a Guest Designer!!
