i love a good baby shower. and, now that i’m past that stage myself, i
sort of absolutely get all giddy when others get to celebrate + welcome a new baby into the world.
so, when i met a new fan at the re:craft + relic show a couple of weeks back, and she asked me to help her with decorations for her sister’s upcoming baby shower, i was on board! she loved the new golden glitter arrow canvas, and shared with me that she was going with a tribal theme for her soon-to-be nephew’s baby shower!
we settled on a large banner with “it’s a boy” + then one of my fave things ever….little place setting
teepees with feathers on top! our color scheme consisted of baby blue, mint green, tan + gold…so i set to work, finding great papers that worked with this color + theme!
i actually kind of had a hard time finding papers in that color scheme with a tribal feel…until i turned to my friends on etsy. i ventured into the world of digital scrapbook papers for the first time, and i might be hooked. (if you aren’t familiar with digital scrapbook papers, they are pretty amazing – for a couple of dollars, you can get a whole collection of coordinating paper designs in high resolution files. you can use them to print paper (like i did), or to do digital scrapbooking, or as pretty wallpapers on your computer!) i think i ended up with about thirty new designs, and i narrowed down the ones i was going to use to six or so, got them prepped and sent them off to my friends at le print express in sycamore for printing!
the finished product was so adorable….seriously, i was snapping pics of these pieces all night before i packed them up to ship to milwaukee! i loved everything…the font on the banner, the layers on the banner, the teepees, and figuring out how to get the paper feathers to sit just right on the top of the teepee.
know someone who’s got a baby shower coming up? i love, love, love doing these kinds of custom decorations for such special occasions! and, i give awesome thank you gifts for referrals! (wink, wink!)
