I don't think you would be interested in reading or seeing pictures of the construction and paint we are doing throughout the store as we get it ready for opening, so I thought I'd start posting some projects that I've been working on...
I just attended a baby shower today for one of my girlfriends...she's having a baby girl. I wanted to make her something cute, so I started out with the card. I used this cute Giraffe from Imaginisce (Love these Snag'em stamps which retail for only $1.00!).
My favorite color scheme right now is anything paired with Dark Brown (esp Pink or Blue)...so I decided to use this colorful and happy orange to coordinate with the Giraffe. This became the inspiration for a goodie basket where I used similar shades of orange and the circle pattern to decorate the gifts I bought her. Here's what the final product looked like.
The Lion and Monkey are from Autumn Leaves "Mindy's Zoo" stamp set. I love Mindy Terasawa's designs - they are absolutely gorgeous and adorable! The elephant is from Fiskar's "Baby" stamp set; and the DP is from a DCWV paper pack. The shower was lots of fun, I hope she liked the gift.
