New In The Shop!

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

I’m excited to announce two new items in my wee shop; mini pencils in both White and Gold! Both of which are perfect for just about any occasion that require a writing instrument. Having a baby or bridal shower? They’re great for games, quizzes and even a guestbook!

I just adore these DIY Baby Shower Invitations by the talented Edyta Szyszlo. Created for her friend, I especially love the fruit stripe envelope liner and the custom silhouettes. Also, make sure to check out the photos form the event, Edyta did such an amazing job!



I Dream of Letters

One of the best details from my surprise birthday party had to be the invites and place settings. Katie hired Miss Danae, a completely amazing calligrapher! Her work is nothing short of perfection, just spend a few minutes (or hours) in her photostream and Etsy Shop, you won’t regret it!



Provincial Baby Shower

Friday, June 11th, 2010

To complete the week of all things baby I thought I’d share this baby shower I recently came across on Imprintables. I literally had to pick my jaw up from the floor when I saw these photographs. Every last detail was thought out and executed beautifully. I adore how even the food coordinates perfectly with the pale pink, apricot and dusty green color palette.

Romi, the creator of Bo Peep Productions, created this entire gorgeous shower. From the cookie mix favors, to the baby quiz and the delicious looking food, I’m sure this was a memorable event. What a very lucky mom-to-be! See all the amazing images and the rest of the details on Imprintables here.



As promised, I’m back today with the last of my sisters baby shower details. I had so much fun putting it all together and preparing all the pieces. I think the cake topper was my favorite part and hopefully it’ll be something they can keep for some time.

The favors were a keepsake that each of the guests got to take home and were based off these that I had seen in the portfolio of Rebecca Thuss. Mine didn’t come out nearly as beautiful but they were still a sweet addition to the event. I wrapped two shortbread cookies in clear cellophane and put them inside the fabric envelope. These little envelopes could hold any number of things really with the proportions adjusted to fit. Below are instructions for how to make your own.

What You’ll Need:
Fabric
Scissors
Scalloped Rotary Cutter
Thread
Shortbread Cookies
Diaper Pins

Instructions:
1. Cut fabric into strips about 5″ wide x 9″ long. Fold top of fabric in 1/2″ towards wrong side of fabric and hem. Repeat on bottom edge.
2. Once both top and bottom edges have been hemmed, fold bottom portion of fabric up approvimetly 3.75″ creating an envelope. Sew along both edges 1/2″ in; securing both sides of the envelope.
3. Add a little detail and prevent fraying by trimming the sides with pinking shears or a scalloped rotary cutter. Be sure to fold top over to where it will approximately be once favor is inside then cut – the scallops will align and the envelope will appear more finished.
3. Finally, slide favor inside envelope and secure with a baby pin!
