Baby Shower Invitation, Decorations and Party Favors

I was in charge of the invitations, decorations and party favors for my darling DIL, Karli's baby shower to be held at her mom's house. I had a lot of fun making things. We know she is having a girl, so of course, everything had to be in pink - LOL! I didn't have enough time to make the invitations individually, so I turned to my Stampin' Up! My Digital Studio program and made them and had them printed. Saved me from having to also fill them all out. Here is the cover and the inside left. The right was the standard, when, where and such.

I liked the way they came out
(I did boo-boo and put gray in the oval and didn't realize it until I got them, but they still looked nice)

First I made the party favors using the Pillow Pocket die (retired)in various shades of pink and decorated it with a contrasting color and the DSP that matched the invitation (bottom half) ribbon and little baby-themed trinkets.

I filled them with Jordan almonds and some little baby feet-shaped candy that I found.

For the decorations, I made a banner using the Pennant Die (retired) and my Cricut Expressions. I loved the way it came out. I also decided to make a diaper cake, googled and found the directions online, it was so easy to make. I decorated it with 1-1/4" wide Pink Pirouette ribbon (retired) and the DSP in Rose Red that matched the invitations. I topped it with pink carnations and added some other flowers on the lower levels and cutouts using my Cricut that matched the ones I made for the banner.




 This is my darling DIL, Karli!
