Love Bugs Baby Shower

I've been chomping at the bit to share these invitations and precious baby shower with you all! This shower was for two very special twin girls. Even though they are still in the NICU, we celebrated their surprise arrival with their mommy last Saturday.

The shower theme was based after the bedding sets selected by mom - bugs! Lady bugs, caterpillars and butterflies! Oh my!

I created a series of invitations for mom to choose from and here was the winner! These are for sale in my shop. You can purchase the digital file or printed invitations.

The cake was made to match the invitation. How awesome is that?! I cannot tell you how excited I was over this cake. It's just really cool when you see your invitation come to life in another form. 

The next idea I loved was this keepsake invitation. All the shower guests signed the matte and then it was framed! What a great idea, right? It'll be a keepsake that both mom and the girls will treasure, I'm sure.

 As for the food table, my sister-in-law found some adorable painted butterflies and caterpillars at Hobby Lobby. We sprinkled them around the table. 

The gift table was over-flowing with all sorts of goodies for the twins! Check out that little stroller made out of diapers and receiving blankets with the two little bears sitting inside! Too cool, right? I really want to learn how to make those now.

Now, for some quick family history - the mom for our shower is my husband's first cousin. A few years ago, we lost his Aunt Sharon. Even though she couldn't be there to celebrate the new life of her twin granddaughters, the shower hostesses found a special way to include her by displaying her picture, some flowers and a memorial candle on a small table by mom's chair.

The bulk of my business is baby shower invitations. It isn't uncommon for customers to request that I add on information about a diaper raffle to their invitation. That said, I knew what it was, but had never actually seen one at a baby shower. Seriously, a diaper raffle is a stroke of genius! Whenever we have children, I am so doing a diaper raffle.

I made rag quilts for both girls. I hope to post a tutorial on these soon. They are pretty easy to make. I want to make myself one now!

Thanks for stopping by!

What's New!

I've been working my tail off lately on two pretty big projects I will share with you in the near future. That said, the blog has taken a back seat, but I thought I'd share two of my newest additions to the shop.

I was feeling a little glitzy so what better than to make a gold and silver confetti baby shower invitation! I have also made this a birthday invitation which can have any number written at the top. 

Are you ready for some football?! The Super Bowl will be here before we know it so I created the perfect invitation for your football party. 

To purchase, simply click the picture. It'll take you to my shop!

I just got a new set of graphics today so expect another birthday/baby shower invitation to pop up in the shop. I'm REALLY excited about it!

See ya!

A Collection of Free 2014 Project Life Cards

I'm only six days late, but - HAPPY NEW YEAR! For those of us who are lovers of Project Life, it's time to start a new album! 

I'm happy to report I've completed my 2013 album and my attempt at a December Daily album was an epic success. It's the first time in the many years I've been scrapbooking that I've actually completed a year long scrapbook and I'm pretty darn proud of it.

Needless to say, it totally pumps me up for doing Project Life this year. To get you motivated and inspired, I thought I'd share a collection of free Project Life cards dedicated to helping you document your New Year. 

To get the goods, simply click on the picture and get to printing!
