We have added a new addition to our Poppylop Family. I am having soooooooo much fun with this one. Digital invitations. I've see them done before by so any talented designers. I never dreamed that I would be able to make them myself. Now don't get me wrong, I know I am no professional, but wow am I having fun practicing. It is totally addictive. Anything is truely possible in the world of digital design.
I have to thank Jessica Sprague and her fabulous, amazing and talented designers for their wonderful tutorials, workshops and classes. They have been my inspiration and have helped me bring my dreams to realities. I have so much more to learn and look forward to each of my upcoming classes (check out my 'Wish List" lol)
I am looking for some new ideas so if you have any themes that you would like to see or have, let me know. I look forward to the challenge.

In the party world invitations are everything. The announce the party, set the mood and theme and give the guests ideas for gifts and of what is to come. It can build excitement and anticipation. Having the right invitation is very important these days. Back in the Day -(as my hubby would say) our mom's picked up paper invitations that were pretty generic and they added the details. Not so now....
With the development of digital technology that generic invitation is a thing of the past. All Hail the great PHOTOSHOP!! It really has changed the industry in many ways. There is almost nothing that can't be created on this program and it's counterpart Illustrator. I have been lucky enough to have these programs now for a while, but haven't really had the time to play and explore them....until now that is.
I have been a busy little bee designing new invitations for the store. I have focused primarily on my most asked for themes, but have also branched out with some new trends. It has been soooo much fun. I think I might get carried away - or maybe I already have wink wink.
Look for more designs coming your way. Water bottle lables and cupcake toppers are in the works. Any suggests are more than welcome!!

Oreo's have come a long way from just dipping. There are so many different ways they have been re-invented by some of the most creative minds around. If you are having a party and are looking for some unique ideas for treats try some of these.

Now I've got your attention!! Ya, who wouldn't love a Chocolate Chip cookie wrapped around an Oreo!! I made these puppies last year - wow. They were amazing!! There is a lot of power packed into one these. One cookie and you are done - plus they have no calories wink wink. This recipe is a must try. Such fun.

Oreo cookie Balls. I was a little hesitant at first, but seriously these little gems are so addictive - (Maybe that's not a selling point) They are super easy to make and so flexible. Like cake pops they can be put on a stick and decorated for any holiday, theme or season. They would be a great addition to any party.
Finally, the newest way I have found to use Oreo's is to dress them up with a chocolate coating. These are so darn cute and would dress up a loot bag in style.

Now seriously who wouldn't love one of these beautiful works of art. I hear they are easy to do and they make such a statement!!
Regardless of what you choose to do with your Oreo's one things for sure - they will be yummy no matter what. Happy Birthday Oreo.
