A 'Labor' of Love...
Hello! Well, hopefully my life is settling back down enough for me to start being crafty again! If it wasn't for a promise made to family, I'm not sure I would have found time to make the crafty goodness you are seeing today. But, I do believe all of my non-craft obligations are back in order so this week promises to allow for some inky time! Woo! Hoo!
My niece is having her first baby in a few short months and my SIL asked if I would be interested in helping with the shower preparation. Um.... YES! After an evening on Pinterest, my head was swimming with ideas for table decorations and goodies. I decided on three very sweet projects. But first a picture of the decorated tables. Aren't the blocks such a cute idea? And now Baby has some toys to play with too!
See the cute little diaper holding the M&Ms? Yep, that's mine!
A 5x5 square of flannel wrapped like a diaper and pinned closed
I also made wrappers for some chocolates using the
It's a Wrap Occasions stamp set.
and my personal favorite, the onsie banner!
I used a template for the onsies and cut the letters
with my cricut. The little clothespins were found
at a dollar store and hold the paper to the bakers
Isn't this the cutest fruit display ever? We saw this idea
on Pinterest and our local grocery store recreated it for us.
I was so excited when I saw the invitations they were using had some of the same colors as the Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP. The sweet prints were perfect for a baby shower and all I had to do was mix the patterns with marina mist, pacific point, and early espresso cardstock to make the banner.
Well, that's it for me today! Have a wonderful week and happy crafting!
