April Showers vs. Baby Showers

Spring is in the air I hope! With April comes showers but have you given any thought to having a baby present prepared for the next baby shower you are invited to? I think Darlene has a cute idea to share with us today, one that is something we could all pull together if we know we welcome a new baby soon! Give it a try!

My cousin had a baby girl a few months ago and I thought it would be a nice gesture if I made her a pre-made layout that she could put in a shadow box. Her baby shower colors were brown and pink, so I thought to add blue and green pops for more interest. :)

I was browsing through Michaels one day when I saw this shiny house paper, and just knew that it was perfect for baby Sophia’s layout… so I picked up 3 sheets… a girl can’t ever have too much paper ya’ know! :)

I used my 2 inch Fiskars scallop punch as well as my 1.5 inch circle punch within the scallops as my flowers. I then handcut out some hearts from coordinating scrap paper and pop-dotted the scallops. I was trying to get creative with my punch, since they were already out, so I used my circle punch to make ‘ticket’ corner punches on the corners of my paper (hello multi-purpose punch!) and I used my scallop punch as a border punch for the pink 12 inch strip where the title sits. I thought I was being pretty clever, so maybe I will try that technique with other punches one day. :)

Share with us your favorite baby layouts/projects! :)
