Baby Shower Creations with CTMH

My brother and his lovely wife are finally making me an AUNT!!!!  I'm over the moon excited!  I love babies, but I am DONE creating my own.  I cannot wait to love on, squeeze, kiss, snuggle and SPOIL their baby!  They are having a baby girl too :) 

My mom and I threw them a couples/family shower and it was my job to create decorations for the shower.  I took it upon myself to create some gifts as well. 

The theme we went with was Baby Carriages, in their colors:  Grey, Pink and White.

JOURNAL:  I used an older CTMH Journal, Dotty For You papers, Sweet Leaf Ribbon, Friendship Alphabet and Polka Dot Alphabet.

EMILY BANNER:  I cut the Baby Carriages  with the Graphically Speaking Cricut Cartridge.  I used Posterboard Alphabet for the letters.

EMILY BLOCKS:  This is by far my favorite of all the things I created!  I used the CTMH 3x3 My Creations chipboard blocks and created the fronts using a variety of CTMH papers. The letters are the Eclectic Alphabet.  I added some bling and a couple of rolled roses.  I glued them all side by side and wrapped the Slate Satin ribbon around.  I created a bow with the Slate Ribbon and some other Pink Ribbon for the top!  

BUTTERFLY FRAMES:  These were used on the game table.  I took a nice white frame I picked up at Michaels, and altered it by adding layered butterflies glued onto the frame. The butterflies were cut in 3 colors, from the Art Philosophy Collection.  I made 2 of these for them to use in her room :) I love this one too, and plan to make some more to sell!!  

MONOGRAMS:  This was one of the guessing games, I stamped the decorative frame with  Perfect Fit Frames and then stamped with the Monogram E

MONOGRAM NOTECARDS:  Finally, I created 36 notecards for them to use as Thank You's.  I used a variety of CTMH and other papers (La Belle Vie, Lucy), stamped the decorative frame with  Perfect Fit Frames and then stamped with the Monogram E

I am now feeling quite guilty that my unborn niece has such amazing hand-made personalized items.... I need to create some more fun stuff for my daughter!

Here are some more of the party decorations:

Everything you created is so lovely and unique. Congrats on becoming an Auntie. Now if my nearly 34 yo brother would get on with it so I can become one on that side of the family. LOL :)
