As a self-confessed stationery addict, I love an excuse to select, personalise, and send off a big pile of party invitations.

My birthday is usually one of the best reasons to do this, but this year I just didn’t have the time to make it happen.

As a compromise, I assembled a little photograph using Project Life cards and embellishments, and sent it off in an email to all my invitees.

32nd invitation

It’s got a papery, personalised feel, but I was able to pull it together in the space of about twenty minutes. Plus, there are sequins. What’s not to love here?
