We're happy to customise!

Did you ever see a Blue Dog Creations design that you liked, but it wasn't *quite* what you wanted? It's ok, we're happy to customise an existing invitation design for you! We usually only add a small additional fee for the changes as most requests are straight forward. Here are some examples of designs we've updated:

Colour change

This christening invitation was a relatively simple change from pink to blue

This birthday invitation was a bit more involved with the number of colours and fonts changed, but the difference is quite dramatic!

Orientation change

This Christmas card was changed from landscape to portrait.

We hope this gives you a bit of inspiration. Please don't be afraid to ask us if there's something you would like us to try!

Happy New Year!

Well it has been a momentous year for Blue Dog Creations. First up, we'd like to say a MASSIVE thank you to Renee and Beckie for making BDC what it is, and for passing it on to us.

Secondly, a huge thank you to all of our wonderful customers, both those who have remained loyal to BDC and all the newcomers too. Without your wonderful support, we could not continue, and we are so grateful.

We are looking forward to another great year and we hope you are too! Thanks once again!

Carey, Sally & Vicky xx

{FREEBIE} Halloween Cake Toppers

Halloween Cupcake Toppers

Here in Australia we don't celebrate Halloween like the do in the United States. However, I've been noticing it has been gaining popularity and last year I took my kids trick-or-treating for the first time. They loved it!

This year, we have been lucky enough to be invited to a pumpkin carving party. It was really fun to carve out the pumpkins. I was quite surprised to find that the insides were mostly seeds and there isn't much flesh, so you can't eat it. Here is my spooky castle.

And here are the pumpkins all together.

The pumpkins weren't edible, but there were lots of very creative things we could feast on, like these scary eyeballs made of lychee and blueberries.

Eyeballs made from lychees

I brought cupcakes with halloween toppers that I created. These are really easy to put together; you just print it, cut out the circles, then tape it to some toothpicks. My daughter really enjoyed putting them together.

Dinosaur Party!

My little boy loves dinosaurs, so we threw him a dinosaur birthday party! It's the first time I've thrown a themed party and I was pretty pleased with how it went. Here's how the food looked:

I made little name dots for all the cups so everyone would be able to keep track of which one was theirs. Normally I just have a sharpie on hand to write the names on.

I also created little tags for the food for a bit of fun! The dinosaur lollies went very quickly; it's just as well that I bought three bags of them.

For games the kids made dinosaurs out of paper plates and we had pass-the-box (our cheats version of pass-the-parcel where each kid can get a toy out of the box).

And then of course, when everyone left they got a lolly bag!

 RAWR! Has anyone else thrown a dinosaur party before? What did you do?

Blue DOg Creations is under new management

The time has come for Beckie and myself to move on from Blue Dog, due to family and work commitments we have both realised that we can no longer run Blue Dog Creations with out compromising on something else - and family must come first. 

After 4 years i have so many loyal customers, and i thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for your support.

I also thank Beckie for being able to help me when demand has been high! i couldn't of made it this far without your help!

Carey has been helping me out over the past few months and has really enjoyed designing for customers. She has been able to step up and manage BDC for a couple of months while i took a break to work out what i wanted to do - thank you so much Carey for being there for Beckie and I.

Carey has now decided to take over Blue Dog for me to keep the name going, and keep my loyal customers happy with gorgeous designs.

Carey can be contacted through FB or her new email is bluedogcreations@outlook.com
