Today I'm posting the banner and a few other little projects that I made for my friend's Baby shower. The theme was Noah's Ark as she had twin boys! They are so super cute and bring lots of love and joy to everyone.
For the banner I opened up my Silhouette DE Software and purchased a few files from the Silhouette online store. I started by cutting the Top Note Nested Shapes in blue on my 12 x 24 mat for the main banner pieces, then cut out the inset pieces in a striped pattern paper.
Next I used the type tool, chose a font and typed out my text then made shadow layers for each letter.
I used the Noah's Ark file by Sarah Bailey and cut it out 6 times. I used my Tim Holtz and Cuttlebug Wood grain embossing folders for all the pieces. For Noah I used the Peachy Keen In the Garden face assortment and used twine to give him a rope tie for his robe.
I bought some chip bowls and used some Silhouette Adhesive Vinyl in white to cut out their names.
My friend had her twins 3 months early (!) and so they were in hospital for some time. Only the hospital was almost 2 hrs away from where we live. So while they were in hospital Mom stayed at Jeneece Place.
Jeneece Place is a home away from home for families who travel for their child's medical care. It is owned and operated by Children's Health Foundation of Vancouver Island. I visited my friend while she was there and what an amazing place it is for families with sick children.
So at her baby shower we had a donation jar (bottle) for Jeneece Place.
|Jeneece Place was the dream of this brave young girl. May she rest in peace|
Tomorrow I will post the favors that I made using Jaded Blossom stamps and the print and cut feature on my Cameo.
