Baby Shower gifts

Baby_shower_cards_2

One of my best friends is going to become a Grandma for the first time in October. There was a shower for her daughter on Saturday. I have known her daughter since she was only 18 months old, so it is very strange to see her preparing to become a Mom! I couldn't be happier for her and her husband and I know they will be amazing parents! It was fun to gather and play games! Just doing some visiting while eating yummy food. Isn't that one of the best parts of a shower?

Easy card with added pretties

Elegant paper adds beauty to this simple to make card. I am showing it as a sympathy card, but it could easily be a birthday, thinking of you or anniversary card! Give it a try with the paper and stamp sets you have on hand.

Christmas in July anyone?

Besides, heading to the craft room and staying in air conditioning is the perfect thing to do on those days that are hotter than blazes!

Get a leg up on the projects now so you can slow down and enjoy the time with loved ones during the Holiday Season!

Christmas in July

Check out the Watercolor Christmas Card Kit which is an amazing $8! The kit includes 20 pre-printed card bases (5 of 4 designs), gold foil lined envelopes, and more! The stamp set isn't available any longer, but you could use the new Mistletoe Season Stamp set or Stylish Christmas stamp set. You might even have the perfect stamp set at home already! Take a look through your stash and see if something would work to replace the greetings shown!

I have to mention my favorite, favorite available in the Clearance Rack! It is the Card Front Builder Framelit Dies!

I used wth dies without the stamps for the Christmas Card, and I actually like the deer better like that. There was a little too much border on the deer when it was stamped first like is shown in the masuline birthday card idea.

 

Can you start to imagine uses for these great dies!
