Baby Shower Thank You Gifts

Wow it's been a long time since I have posted here. Just in general life has taken over--school, work, church stuff and many more. I am sure you all can relate. I am missing my crafting time and I even miss my crafting ladies since I have moved. BUT the best part of the move it I have more space and I am hoping to start crafting more now that I can spread out and unless I have company over I can leave the "mess" out to play with later :) So because of that I am hoping to start posting here more!

My latest project was a baby shower gift for a friend from church. I decided to create a pack of thank you cards for her to use. Since they don't know whether they are having a boy or girl yet I felt that Babycakes- Close to My Heart's newest paper was perfect for a neutral thank you cards. I also used the stamp set Wild Wonders to go with the paper pack and add some fun to the cards! The thank you stamps that I used are from various stamps sets that

As many may understand I am addicted to Pinterest and find lots of ideas everyday that I would love to recreate. Thanks to Pinterest I was able to use ideas I found there to create the following cards. Simple but fun cards! I think they are my favorite cards I have created in a long time!

My inspiration for this card came from my own mind :) I wanted to play with the letters background by adding Thank You minus the T to a T that was on the background paper. 

My inspiration for this card came from several different cards I saw--it seems like this layout is very popular in the card world! 

Again another popular layout in the card world very simple and clean! 

My inspiration for this card came from: 

I wasn't done when I finished these fabulous cards-- I decided to make a matching gift bag and card for the mom to be. After these cards I think the card is another all time favorite! I am sure every parents can agree with the statement "It's about to get wild around here!" especially when it's your first baby! I just loved the statement and thought it fit perfectly for a new mom-to- be baby shower.

No inspiration used here...I knew I wanted to use all the animals and I used scraps I had cut already to create this cute card. I think maybe that's why I love this was my own creation! :) 

For some reason I never got a picture of just the gift bag but here is a group picture of everything I created! I hope you enjoyed them as much as I do. Feel free to recreate and if you do please share your wonderful ideas with me! :) Happy crafting from my corner to yours!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Praise the LORD, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. The life of mortals is like grass, they flourish like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more. But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD’s love is with those who fear him, Praise the LORD, my soul. Psalm 103: 1-5, 11-12,15-17, 22b

Just as a flower blooms in the spring time God’s love blooms ALL THE TIME! As his love pours out so do the many blessings he gives up!! He even reminds us in his Word that he will take care of us just as he takes care of the birds in the air and the flowers in the fields. Therefore we should praise the Lord for all that he has done for us!! We can look back and easily find the downsides of our lives but let’s focus on the many blessings he has given us because he loves us!! The best blessing of all is that He sent his Son to “remove our transgressions from us” and he “forgives all our sins”. Who could ask for anything better than that?!? Remember his great love and his great blessings on this Valentine’s Day and always!! Happy Valentine’s Day!!

Triple Play Part Two

Not a big fan of the mini albums which is how triple play is being advertised?? Thanks to another CTMH consultant I have any idea of how you can use triple play. You can make cards!! :)

Here are my cards and the only extra supplies I needed were extra colonial white cardstock for the cardbase and I used the new opaques mocha adhesive gems for extra embellishments.

Here are the seven cards I made and a holder for the cards. Enjoy!

The cards inside the holder:

Triple Play part 1

Life certainly has been busy and I certainly haven't been of the big event in my life has been a new baby in the family!! My brother and sister in law had a baby girl in August and everyone is super excited as she is the first one! First daughter, first grandbaby, first niece...and since she is a special little one we all need to brag right??? So I was able to use the pink album from the triple play to create a auntie brag book!! Here are the pictures of my album I created...

The Cover:

The first pages--information about Macy's birth and picture of Macy and I just after she was born! We made it there about an hour after her birth! I just love this picture because it looks like she is smiling/laughing at me when she really was crying :)

A few pictures of Macy while at the hospital!

Baptism weekend was the next weekend so the next pages are of her baptism.

Hard to believe that my baby brother is a daddy--but he is a good daddy and I am so happy for him and Amy! So I had to include a daddy/daughter picture in my brag book! Plus one of my favorite (I have a feeling I am going to have ALOT of favorites!) pictures from Labor Day weekend.

I still have room :) but just need to print some more pictures out!! I am sure I will get some more cute ones this weekend while she is visiting!
