Saturday was the baby shower for my brother and sister-in-law, commonly referred to as "The Jess-es," since their names are Jesse and Jessica. Awww!
The party was hosted by her sister and friend, but I made a couple of things I wanted to show you!
Here is the guest book I made using scrapbook supplies:
The chipboard pages were purchased as a pre-cut book in pretty scalloped designs, then I added a rectangular front and back. The edges were roughed up with a nail file.
The woodland-themed paper is from a DCWV "Green Stack" photo mat cardstock pad from Joanns. So cute, but not too girly for a baby boy.
The cardstock was glued to the chipboard pages, then embellished with ribbon and flower decals. A little square of plain cardstock was added for signatures or little notes from guests. Here are a few of my favorite layouts:
I'm not really into scrapbooking, but I love to make little books like this or special cards. I'd like to do [finish] a big scrapbook for my little girl as her baby book, but I'm really bad at finishing large projects like that. Plus I like to have a matching theme throughout, and I'd have a really hard time choosing the layouts- the little girl products are sooooo cute!
Anyway, I also painted some flowerpots for the centerpieces:

Acrylic paint can be really cheap- the Joanns brand is 59 cents each
The felt flowers and leaves were glued on
