More Baby Shower Items

Here are pictures of things I made for the baby shower. I am putting these on really fast because I have to leave for work real soon. I used the same colors for everything, bashful blue, so saffron, certainly celery, and whisper white.

I used the retired Stampin' Up! designer paper "delicate dots." I made lots of pinwheels and matchbox die favors. I wanted to add more to the matchbox favors, but I ran out of time.

The wishes for Carter turned out to be a really cute idea. I am now going to make a book out of them. I will post it when I get it done. It is really neat to read what people put for answers. Also, I created them using the MDS (My Digital Studio) program.

I hope you enjoy looking at these and maybe give you some ideas for a shower you may have sometime in the future.

Sorry if I posted too many pictures. I just wanted you to get a good idea of what all there was. I had made 24 pinwheels. Eight of them were bigger and 16 of them were a little smaller.

When all was said and done, the shower was a success. We had a good time and they went home with tons of stuff. Now she has to go through everything and have it prepared for when little Carter comes. Woohoo! Fun, fun, a new baby to love and hold!

Stocking Banner

Finally! I finally have something to share with all of you. I am working on some things for my daughter's baby shower that is coming up at the end of this month. This is one of the things I was finally able to get done for it. I am very sorry if the first picture you see is not the best. I tried 3 different times taking pictures in different areas with different lighting. It is hard really getting good pictures. To be honest, the close up pictures of much better.

I used the holiday stocking die from the Holiday mini catalog to create this banner. To create the letters I used the MDS program. I wanted them to be a little bigger and in the 3 different colors.

For the pinwheels I found a template on the internet and from that figured out the size I needed to cut my paper and how to fold it to make them. I ended up using retired DSP to make them. It is the same DSP that I used for the baby shower invitations. To give some texture to the main part of the stocking I used the textured impressions embossing folder "Perfect Polka Dots."

The cardstock colors used to make these is bashful blue, certainly celery, so saffron, and whisper white. I did not end up rubberstamping at all on these. The only place ink was used was around the edge of the whisper white circles, which have the letters on them. Lastly, I used white and brocade blue 5/8" grosgrain ribbon (both are retired) to hand each stocking on with a little clothespin. The clothespins I used I bought at a craft store a long time ago. Stampin' Up! sells them now though. By the way, I am sure you have figured out that his name is going to be Carter. We can't wait to welcome him into this world!
Once again, thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog. Please feel free to leave a comment!

Please Be Watching

Hello bloggers! I wanted to let you know that I have not forgotten about you. There has been a lot going on over here in my home. For Christmas, my daughter, son-in-law, and grandson were here visiting. They live in Wyoming. I wanted to spend as much time as I could with them. I am also preparing for a baby shower for my other daughter. I have been working on some baby shower favors. They still are not completely finished yet. I will be posting pictures of them very soon. I will also be making some "Thank you" cards. I am having a class at the end of the month. Please don't give up on me. I will add new things as I get them finished. I just wanted to let you know why I haven't posted anything lately. I am sorry! I will try to get things going again with this week. Thank you for understanding.
