Here are some gifts I made for my sister’s baby shower. She had twins so I made one for each. It just happened to work out that both their names as 6 letters and fit perfectly. I filled the pieces of the pie with yummy candy goodies for mommy. I don’t remember what these alterable containers were called or how makes them but I bought them at Archivers.

This is the Bonus Project from the Footloose Workshop Kit:
Like this workshop? It is only available while supplies last through July 31, 2012 so order today!
This month the Challenge at Scrap Our Stash is Stars & Stripes. I realized I really don’t have much for stars at all! So for my layout I opted to use striped paper (I’ve got plenty of that!) and embellish with some chipboard stars.
Supplies used: Pebbles pattern paper, Close to My Heart cardstock, Close to My Heart Dimensional Elements – Stars, Close to My Heart Dimensional Elements Alphabet, Close to My Heart Twilight, Honey, and Goldrush inks, Michael’s Rhinestones, and unknown journaling paper.
I often do one-photo layouts. One trick to filling up the page is by adding a border. If you look at this page, the blue strip is the backside of a scrap from the striped paper.
A bunch of Close to My Heart consultants have gathered together once again to bring you a blog hop featuring the papers in the brand new Dotty For You Paper Packet. The hop makes a circle so if you are starting here, continue until you make your way back. If you are coming from Haley Dyer’s Blog you are on the right track.
The Dotty For You paper packet includes 24 specially designed, coordinated B&T Duos sheets (2 each of 12 patterns) and an artwork idea insert to get your creative juices flowing. Spread the word and help us celebrate National Scrapbooking Month in May with this exclusive Dotty For You paper packet promotion. Available April 17 (9:00am MST)- May 31 (11:59pm MST), while supplies last. Get yours today!
Here’s what I have created for you today:
Supplies used are Close to My Heart unless noted: Dotty For You Paper Packet, Colonial White Grosgrain Ribbon (retired), Colonial White RicRac from the Colonial White Designer Ribbon Round Collection, Basic Buttons Assortment, Bamboo Waxy Flax, Dimensional Elements – Hearts, Heavenly Blue ink, Smoothie ink, and DCWV Quote Stack.
I just love all the different colors that this paper pack has in it. You can do many layouts and they will all look so different! I really don’t care for the cloud paper and thought for sure it would be one that I would use the backside of but what do you know here it is showing up on my layout and it is perfect for these baby pictures! My layout is also a copycat from the Studio J layout below. I noticed the row of stitching and substituted it with ric rac. I really like the mix if it with the line of ribbon.
Your next stop is Elizabeth Mindemann’s Blog.
Supplies used are all CTMH unless noted: Dotty for You Paper Packet (Available April 17-May 31, 2012), Trinity Alphabet stamp set, Sunset ink, Lagoon ink, Dimensional Elements Mixed Shapes, Dimensional Elements Banners, buttons from my stash, Stampin Up Baker’s Twine. Sept. 2011 Page Map.
Trinity is a great alphabet because it offers three different size letters, punctuation, and numbers! I’ve used all the sizes in my layout. I had to use the Stampin Up baker’s twine because it was all I had in my stash but CTMH has some new Baker’s Twine and I think the colors are a bit brighter. I’m going to have to get some now!
