While we were in MA last year visiting my sister-in-law. We stopped at a really shady place to play a round of putt-putt. I mean look at the sign. And the owner had one arm and an eye patch (for real!)
Details: Background paper is "blue grid worn" by Scenic Route. The cloud paper is "Head in the Clouds" from My Mind's Eye's Love Me Do collection. The dot paper is Jibber Jabber Talk Soup by JilliBean Soup. The journaling block is by My Mind's Eye. The title was cut using Lyrical Letters on the Cricut.

Shower Sneak Peek

Here is a peek at Noey's shower. I am just bursting at the seams since I can't post any of the stuff we are working on. We are trying to make as much as we can a surprise for her on the big day :) After Easter weekend though I will have tons to share!

Details: The paper is Round & Round Plaid Boulevard from My Mind's Eye's Abbey Road collection. The stamps are both by Hero Arts. The shapes were cut out using SCAL. And the favors are hand sanitizer from Bath & Body Works. We got them in the three colors of her shower. :)

Baby Booties

I have three friends expecting baby boys in the coming months. My sister shared this booty tutorial with me and I got the hair brained idea to make a pair for each baby boy. :P

The pair I made for Noey. When my husband and I saw this soft flannel, we just knew it was for Noey's baby boy.

This pair is for Sylvia's baby boy J. The nursery for little J is done in hues of orange and red. I thought this fabric was perfect for him.

The last pair is for Jessica's baby boy, Hudson. His nursery will be in shades of sage, cream and brown once his daddy gets his room ready.
I hope they all loved their booties! The booties weren't too hard to make. The only hard part was pinning them since they are so tiny.

Noey's Baby Shower Invites!

My good friend Noey is having a baby boy in June. A few of us decided to throw her a fabulous shower when she is back in Austin visiting. Since Noey makes so many fabulous paper things, we had to make some adorable and fabulous invites for her shower!

The font I used is Angelina from this website.

Here is the whole look. I love when things coordinate :)

A close-up of the invites. I cut the nest by designing my own cut file for SCAL and then cutting them on brown Bazzill. Then Sylvia and I flocked "twigs" on them. We also cut out the eggs using SCAL. The color is Candle by Bazzill. To get the eggs to look shiny we used Glossy Accents.

The envelopes are size A7 and are in pool blue. The adorable labels are chartreuse.

The foot stamp is a stamp I am so glad I bought a few years back. It has gotten much use and it always makes me smile.
Sorry that some of the invite details are blurred out, but I have to respect the privacy of others :)

Card for Sylvia

I made this card to give to Sylvia for her baby shower. I cut the owl out using the Storybook Cricut cartridge. I flocked the owl body and feet. Then added googlie eyes and some stickles for the nose. :)
