10 Steps to a Custom Woodland Whimsy Girl Baby Card

I was recently at a baby shower for a friend. The mother-to-be is obsessed with cute foxes, so the location was beautifully decorated with handcrafted woodsy-themed baby decorations, the food was cleverly named with forest creatures in mind (e.g., bare meatballs with sauce served on the side were labelled as Bear Balls), and the games were equally as well-thought-out and personalised for the future mum. The only thing that wasn’t well-thought-out and customised? The baby shower cards.

As I watched her open card after card and gift card after gift card (all bearing the same company name and image, mind you), it dawned on me how special a handmade baby shower card could be.

So much of Australia is experiencing some beautiful weather this weekend!  Here in NSW we are having some very WARM weather this Summer.

Virtual Christmas Crop: Challenge 4-Colour

Welcome back!

How are your projects coming along?  Did you make time for a chocolate break?  If so, that means you have energy and are ready to keep going!

Colour palettes are always so fabulous to use when creating a layout.

Sometimes it means that I work within one paper collection, and other times it means that I pull pieces from several paper collections.

But, how do you know where to start?

With Christmas right around the corner, this combination jumped out at me, with the traditional colours.

Meet the Painted Harvest Scrapbook Collection

I am still mopping up the drool.

Did you see the new collection that we just launched last week?

Painted Harvest.

Creative Memories Painted Harvest Collection

Its title describes it perfectly!  The collection has a very warm palette using earthy tones.  While there are a few leaf embellishments, the overall palette leans too much more than just fall.  Think about photos from a day at the park, a trip abroad, or even a family reunion.  The Painted Harvest collection will suit all of those scrapbooking needs.
