Good afternoon everybody!! Hope all is well I know here on the NW side of San Antonio, as well as citywide, we are recovering from God's amazingly powerful light show last night demonstrated in a massive storm complete with pyrotechnics, wind, hail, rain, and power outages. One things for sure, He was and is definitely large and in charge.
Today I will begin uploading my original creations for different occasions from past years as well as the present. Baby showers are one of my favorite events to do, all the games, and pure fun it can bring. When I make invites and cards for people, I try to reflect their personality and individual styles of taste. The above photo is one of a Baby Announcement that I made for my BFF's first granddaughter. I had carte blanche on the design, the only requirement was to keep it simple and of course very girlie.
This next one was a Baby Shower invite combo Save the Date for a very dear sister in Christ. All I can take credit for on this one is the design of the invite, the photo was taken by another dear friend. The couple was truly blessed with one of the cutest baby boys you have ever laid your eyes on. The pic to the right is the inside which contains a poem, from the baby's point of view on the upper flap, an insert with the event info,and the couples registry card. The one item not in the pic is the pastel index card for the women to write parenting advice. It fit behind the info card in the pocket.
The next one is a Save the Date/Invite combo also. Also for a baby boy. Actually the moms-to-be of both these invites had the same due date at the same hospital :)
The mommy-to-be helped with this invite. She is an amazing sister in Christ and faithful friend. It's hard to tell in the pic but the yellow onesie is HAND cut and embossed with baby hands and feet Fiskars plate...we are talking pre-cricut and cuttlebug people. We dusted the de-bossing with baby powder to help the images stand out and smell sweet ;) The background base is handstamped with an assortment of clear baby sentiments. The pacifier is a downloaded image printed off and cut out. The teddy is a punch and the bib lifts up to reveal the details.
Finally a baby girl again...there is nothing wrong with making invites for lil' boys. It's just more fun for girls because of the variety accessories and pretty embellishments
These next two were made for the same baby shower just a little difference in size and embellishments. Both versions are cuttlebugged with inking on the raised images. On the one on the left, it has felt flowers with the accent of hot pink fun fur yarn layered behind them.the one to the right as small paper flowers with tiny lil' button centers. The lil' princess subject of these invites has not arrived yet...we are praying that God will bless mom and baby with a healthy delivery :)
Well this is my post for today..tune in tomorrow for some more. Thanks for stopping by :)
