Baby Shower with a spring/ladybug theme using the Paisley Cricut Cartridge

Invitation: Baroque Motiff Stampin' Up Stamp Set & Paisley Cricut Cartridge

Banner-  Used the (Blessing was the baby's name :).  I used the Paisley cartridge to decorate the banner and we hung it over the gift table.  The mother took it home and hung it in the baby's room.

Seed Packets-  Bought the 5/$1 flower seeds from Walmart.  Used the Freshly Picked Cricut to cut seed packets that could cover the Walmart ones.  (If anyone needs dimensions for this let me know.  I have it saved on my Gypsy).  I used the ladybugs from the Paisley cartridge to decorate the fronts.  And I used an acrylic alphabet stamp set to stamp "May Flowers".   On the side of the gift table we had a cream clay pot with florist picks holding these seed packets with a sign saying "April Showers, bring May Flowers."  It was an April baby shower.  The seed packets were the shower favor.

In a recent Youtube video, I said that the Paisley  Cricut Cartridge is one of my favorites.  The above pictures are why I fell in love with this cartridge.   The Paisley cartridge has the cutest images.   I've really enjoyed making things with it.  And as an added bonus, you can get it really cheap on Ebay.   It has been around for a while, but it was new to me in 2011, and that's why it made my list.

Superb baby shower and the backyard looks just stunning. The lanterns idea seems simply adorable. Want to arrange a great baby shower at event venue. Will have these types of décor ideas there too. Hope will have a nice and enjoyable party.
