Wedding Card

I made this card for my nephew, who is getting married this week. The card is from a pack from Big Lots that already had the windows in them. I gave them a batter bowl with lid, the dry ingredients from this recipe and a gift card to buy the rest of the ingredients and dinner. I printed the recipe card on the computer and stamped the flowers. I used Stickles on the flower centers, around the sentiment and on the tux/dress.

Baby Shower

My dh's cousin is having a baby girl, the first one in the family since her. How fun! Having a boy myself, I couldn't wait to get my hands on all things pink. I made a diaper cake and clothes line to be used for shower decorations, then made a gift for mom of thank you notes and a coupon holder. I had a ton of fun!

This is the clothes line. I made these cardstock diapers and used punches to include the baby's name. I printed the letters on the computer. I found this idea and template here: The dresses and shoes on the mantle are the mother-to-be's from when she was a child. I thought that was so sweet!

This is a gift tag I made to add to the gift bag. I recycled the gift bag and luckily the CS matches perfectly. I don't remember the name of this stamp set but I borrowed it from a friend a while back and stamped a bunch of images. This is my last girrafe, maybe she'll let me borrow it again. I colored it in with colored pencils and of course added Stickles!

This is the gift set for mom. I made 10 than you cards, my friend Jennifer showed me how to make the box. I still think my coupon holder is an original idea from when I made one for myself 2 years ago. I folded CS to make pockets and used the BIA to put it all together. Each pocket is labeled with a different baby item using the cute Baby Firsts stamp set from SU.

I wrapped Hershey's Nuggets using Avery 8160 labels and Microsoft Word. I shaded all of the labels with pink and added the clipart image. I like how they turned out and they were so EASY!

And last, but not least, the diaper cake. I love making these. I usually make them where the diapers are wrapped in a blanket and gifts are stuffed everywhere but since I wasn't what the mother-to-be would preferred, I made a simple version. I love how it turned out!

I think she really liked how everything looked.

Archiver's M&T

Another Archiver's Make & Take. They are so sweet there, they insisted that I do the card even though I had my 20 month old son with me. He sat in my lap and the lady helped me with the embossing and adhering the bling. It made my day, the simple things right? :)
