We recently had a baby shower for my daughter and I was in charge of decorations. Since the party was not at my house, I had to make sure the decorations were simple and easy to hang (painter’s tape and washi tape was a life saver) I used my Silhouette to cut the decorations and party ideas out. It was a great way to use up some paper out of my paper packs. Since this was a couples shower, we didn’t want to overwhelm the men with pink, so we used grays and oranges mixed with a hint of baby pink. We used some tags that I made by using a Gelly Roll pen in the blade/pen holder. The guests wrote advise on them and we hung them on a line of twine. The Baby Girl sign was drawn with my machine with a Gelly Roll pen.
I had to laugh when I was asked to come up with a nautical baby card. Only then to find out that I was creating a card for a friend to put on a themed packaged gift for my own daughter. I used digital paper, sketching Silhouette files and shapes. I love making the coordinating envelopes!
I love to doodle. I love to color. I doodled these drinks, colored them, then scanned into my computer so I could print copies and make some cards. I’m pretty happy with how they came out, especially on the first try.
I was asked to make a seahorse birthday card. I used a variety of things to give it interest and texture. Glitter cardstock for the seahorse and coral. I embossed the seahorse with tiny dots and popped it off the page. I used “Wink of Stella” glitter pen on the stars of the sand dollar. Different backgrounds have it some texture. I used lots of SIL files to create this. The backgrounds were from a Pink Paisley Port Beach digital paper pack.
A friend of mine asked me to come up with a nautical birthday card she could give to her son for his birthday. I added the lifesaver last when I realized the card needed something more. This is how it turned out. I used digital paper for the background and added some dimensional texture by using hemp cord.
