Baby Shower

A few weeks ago I was able to throw a baby shower for a cute friend of mine in my neighborhood. I decided that we would do a "little man" theme, and it turned out super cute.
My inspiration was the products I used to design the shower invitation. I used the DELIGHT IN THE DAY Digital Scrapbooking products from My Digital Studio, aka MDS (Stampin' Up's digital designing software) Their products can be used with their software or even Adobe Software and is super cute.

I first off must give a toot at this software I used. This is completely my opinion and Stampin' Up is not asking me to give a review of any of these products. These opinions are completely all my own. That being said, their cute digital software really is outstanding. SUPER easy to use. They even will allow you to try it out for FREE for 30 Days.

I already gave you a sneak peek of the invitation, but I wanted to give you a few more details!

One of my favorite things about MDS is that you can create it and print it right off your printer. You don't have to print it with them if you don't want to! So a lot of the party stuff I designed, I used their products, Designed in Adobe Illustrator, and printed off on my home printer! SWEET HUH!

 Greeting sign, with close pins, onsies, and some paper circle garland that I sewed together in strips! 
Upon entering the shower, I asked each shower guest to write on an index card some advice for our new mom. Then I took a picture of each guest with the new Mommy. I used MDS once again to make a little flip book of the pictures, advice, gifts given, and pictures from the shower. This was given to Nikki as part of her shower gift.  I did have this printed for our new mommy through Stampin' Up! and love how it turned out!

 The food turned out FANTASTIC! Thank you to pinterest I found some wonderful ideas! Below are the links for the recipes. All the "toppers" again made with MDS in Illustrator, and printed out on my own computer.
I seriously have made these 5 times in the last month!
 I made these on Studio 5 for the Man Cave Party
Hillshire farms mini sausages and refrigerator crescent roll dough. EASY! Mustaches cut out on my silhouette and hot glued onto a toothpick, even EASIER!
 Veggies prepared by my awesome friend Lindsay! Thanks woman!!
These little mini parfaits were made for two different Studio 5 segments

I haven't had many opportunities to throw many baby showers, so I was really excited to throw this one. We decided to do a small shower and make it an open house, so there were no games, however it was just perfect. GOOD LUCK to you NiKKi! You're going to be such an amazing mom!
