"Heaven Sent" Baby Shower Invitations

Just Jaime from Wayward Girls' Crafts here! I thought I'd give you guys a peek into my creative process today from when I planned a baby shower for my Wayward sister, Brave Brooke.

I made three Pinterest inspiration boards for Brooke to choose from a few months in advance. She chose our "Heaven Sent/Angelic Theme" which I loved too =)

From there I started thinking about how I wanted to do the invites. I found this image on Pinterest:

Isn't it adorable? I can't find a photo credit for it ANYWHERE so I can't give any credit for it, but I wish I could.

I wanted to use baby feet as a "v" in my invite. So I decided to make the invites saying "Heaven Sent" with the "v" being baby feet. I went to Joann and TOTALLY lucked out. They had these stamps there, calling my name:
Photobucket



The cardstock was gorgeous, you can't tell in this picture, but check it out here. I also used some of this because the store ran out of the gemstone.

The hardest part was the computer part--I printed the actual invitation on the opposite side of the cardstock. Making the size right proved difficult for my computer to comprehend. Eventually I tricked it by using skinnier paper but not telling it.

How would you use baby feet?


The shower was a huge success! Check out the decor, food and games.
