Baby Shower (Grey-White Theme)

This project is definitely on my "faves" list. I attended a baby shower where the gender is not going to be revealed until birth. The colors chosen were grey and white. I had already done the backgrounds but was unsure what to use to baby-it-up, when SVG Cuts came out with their Carousel Ride SVG Kit. I immediately fell in love with the carousel horse, and it became the element that made it so darling.
I made the cupcake box from the 3D Numbers Party SVG Kit. I designed the papers myself, and printed them on my wide format printer.
I customized the onesies with htv.

I then made customized clothing rod dividers for the baby's closet.  The one-piece box for the dividers came from SVG Cuts' My Day With Dad SVG Kit. I made it a solid top. And again, I used the carousel horse to tie it all together.
The card was also made to match.
I rolled onesies up with a baby sock inside, so that it looked like a cupcake with a cherry on top. So pleased with how this all turned out. Here's a photo with the completed set.
So many babies coming along these days, including my own grandson!  What a fun time.

A Little Gift From Heaven Awaits!

Shine Your Light!

I've definitely been loving lighthouses lately, so I was thrilled when Mary at SVG Cuts designed this wonderful one. I love that it is a box, and that you can put tea lights in the box and in the top of the lighthouse for such a wonderful effect.  This lighthouse comes from SVG Cuts' Seaside SVG Kit. There are some other really nice projects in the kit, so go take a look!
 I had such a nice birthday this year. One of those that got spread out over days containing fun lunch dates and seeing many wonderful friends and family. I had a friend visit from Montana, and we spent a week going to the Scrapbook Expo, attended lots of scrapbook stores (and a crop), did some sightseeing, and some crafting, out to lunch with my besties. It was a great week. I got this triple flip-it die at the Sizzix booth at the Scrapbook Expo, and used it for my thank you cards. So easy and fun to make!
The following two box cards were given to me! How fun to be a crafter and have someone actually make something for you! The Polaroid camera box card was made by Jeannie Lassey as a thank you for the fun week she spent with me in San Diego. The beautiful piano box card was made by Sharayln Morgan for my birthday. They are both amazing. The piano box card came from SVG Cuts' Summer Box Cards SVG Kit. The camera box card came from Parkside Row SVG Kit. Thanks, ladies! I love them both (and they are both still being displayed).
The last thing for this blog is just a pretty little box I made for a gift for my sis-in-law. You can always find the right size box if you look through SVG Cuts. This box was a DVD box that came from the Summer Blockbuster SVG Kit. Such a fun kit, with so many items to make! Perfect to plan that sleepover movie party! Of course, I took a totally different spin on it and the box was perfect for some stamps and dies.
And, that's a wrap for today! Thanks for stopping by.

Make Like a Lighthouse and Shine Your Light!
