Baby Shower Projects

My friends baby shower was this weekend and I was in charge of the games. We played the rice game, remember the items in the basket and we drew a name out of the envelopes that will be used for the Thank You cards.

I had already made the Invites (see previous posts), but I wasn't going to stop there! Here are the other projects I made!

The easiest thing I made was this decoration for the rice game. I cut the safety pin from a standard image in SCAL using plain paper. I then give it a shimmer using Stampin' Up's Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. The spritz is SO cool! I added a few safety pins to the ribbon which went around the vase that held the rice.
In the rice there were 10 actual safety pins. The premise of the game is to see how many safety pins you can dig out of the rice in one minute; surprisingly challenging!

My thank you cards were inspired by a RAQ challenge on the Cricut Card message board. The cute little onesie is from the New Arivals cartridge. I used the Stampin' Up Soft Suede Marker to edge the onesie and add the three little dots on the bottom of the onesie and next to the lower-right hand corner of the plaid paper. It was also the color used for the little birdie on the front :) which is from the Bouquet Bunch stamp set. The flower brads and paper came from Paper Studio.

This is the card that I made for the mom-to-be. I cut the various levels of the buggy from the New Arrivals cartridge with a few snips from my scissors. I created the baby blocks in SCAL and this card was all made with scraps!

Clothes dividers for the babies closet. I will be posting a video about this project shortly.

This framed scrapbook page has to be my favorite project! I did everything from creating the page to painting the frame. I got to start as soon as I found out what the colors of the babies room would be, purple and green.
I can't recall where I got all of the supplies for this project from. But I'm so happy with how it turned out!

Like I mentioned, I've been working on some of these projects for some time...which answers the question of Where do I find the time? Thank you for stopping by, I had a blast with these projects!
