I’m a sucker for pretty much anything that glows in the dark, and I’ve been wanting to get my hands on some glow-in-the-dark embossing powder for years. I finally picked some up, and I’m kicking myself for not having done so sooner because, yeah, this stuff rocks!

Head on over to Craftsy to learn how I made this cute and cool handmade Halloween card that shares its ghostly glow when the lights are low.

Sweet Making and Baking-Inspired Baby Shower Invitations

Recipe Card-Inspired Baby Shower Invitations | Little Korboose

It’s been a while since I featured custom invitations over here, but this sweet baby shower invitation suite by April Nemeth of Little Korboose was just too darling to resist. The design was inspired by the mama-to-be’s love of making and baking, and the suite features wonderful details, including a clever, recipe card-inspired invitation, cute polka dot “It’s a Girl!” die cut tags, hand lettering (“Sophia”, “Recipe”, and “Notes”), and a custom, faux newspaper article and personalized crossword puzzle inspired by the event.

I also love that the favors, which included apple cider and all natural soy candles, were locally made and featured custom packaging, also designed by Little Korboose. Here’s more darling eye candy from this sweet shower:
