Babies, Bags and More....

Good morning!

Before I get carried away with my long to do list today, I thought I'd share a project I worked on last week.

I was not able to attend a baby shower for a friend who is expecting her first child on March 1st but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get a little something to celebrate this special time!

Her colors for the nursery are chocolate brown, hot pink, light pink and a sage green. SO CUTE! I decided to use those colors when choosing my gift bag, tissue paper and card. Anyone who knows me knows that presentation is a big thing for me....yes, this is just one of many quirks you'll get to learn about me this time around! I discovered a long time ago that I can get carried away with bags, bows and wrapping paper so to make things a little simpler, I choose papers and bags that can be used for many different occasions. And since I refuse to pay $5.00 or more for a card I always make my own. In the future I'll show my gift wrapping solutions, but for now here is the card...

and here is the card attached to the bag.....

I don't believe you have to spend an arm and a leg to create something beautiful. The gift bag was $1.49, the hot pink tissue was .99 cents and I made the card with supplies I had on hand. For under $3.00 I was able to give something beautiful that came from the heart. How can you go wrong with that?

I'd love to hear your gift wrap solutions!

Many Blessings,


  1. The picture does not do it justice. When I was able to see it in person I think it was very stunning.

  2. Very Cute! You're very creative! Did you make the card with a punch? I enjoy scrapbooking and card making as well,but mine aren't that creative. Great job!
