Having a baby shower

I am about to have my second baby shower for my first baby girl. I am 36 weeks pregnant, very anxious to finally have my baby with me. As I had a baby shower in Brazil 20 weeks ago when I was on vacation there, I am using most of the ideas to help my friends here put a nice baby shower for me.

I am making the center pieces of the. My idea is a styrofoam flower vase. There is a similar idea in this link: How to make a Pomander Flower Ball.

Let me tell you how my baby shower in Brazil was.

When I was 20 weeks pregnant I had a baby shower in my hometown with all my family and close friends. I couldn`t wait to see everything organized and decorated.
I had been lucky enough to find most of the things I want to buy in the US before heading to Brazil.
I have found amazing ideas on the internet. I am having a girl, so I picked the colors pink and brown, white and green would be the second colors in the decoration.

The invitation: I bought the card and the envelope, the ribbons at Michaels, the pink and brown paper is from Brazil. I made this invitation in about a month.


I was inspired by some ideas I took from these videos:
favors: Lembrancinhas de nascimento e maternidade

The tips I needed to start the decoration and the scrapbook favors I took from here.

How to make a simple and beautiful bow: Como fazer laço

Bottle of water: Water bottle pocket tag

Baby shoe step by step: Lembrancinha chá de fraldas

Baby diaper: convite

Diaper bag: tutorial (video)

Pregnancy album... to be continued

Hello dear friends, one more post for the day!!

I started a pregnancy album some weeks ago. I am not pregnant YET! It is just the beginning of a wonderful album I am designing for myself. I bought the Hopscotch collection from Basic Grey to start making the pages. Some other papers are Bazzil cardstock and pregnancy papers from Creative Imaginations. I will be posting the pages as I keep making them. The cover is just stunning but I will only show it when I finish the album. Keep in touch.

This page was based on a Page Maps sketch, so you can see here.

One of double pages.

Honeymoon album

We spent our honey moon in Miami. It was sunny and stunning!!
I loved being there for the first time in my life... and for my honeymoon... waw.. too good to be true!

I made this album about two months ago. It is not totally complete because i will put some tags and journalling. I still want to print some more photos I have but anyways... it is a clean album which not much embellishments. I wanted something more organized... not a lot of risks... I may add some more photos in a transparency page or smaller photo size that`s it!

Check it out.

I chose the collection Every day from American Crafts for this album.
Let`s start with the cover. I bought some stickers and cut out the clouds.

This is our arrival at the airport. I saved our tickets for this album.

The photos on the left are one the first things we saw in Miami.

Spending some time at the beach.

I still have to work on this page.

Photos of Key West.

I might be back with some more pages.
