Baby Shower Invites: Lindsay

I have two sister-in-laws expecting baby girls in April. This will be Lindsay's first child and Ariel's second. Lindsay's baby shower is coming up quick and I've had this project looming for some time... Such a relief to finally have it done!

I mailed the majority of invites off before getting pics but luckily had two remaining to photograph.


I got the idea from an Annie's Attic Spellbinders magazine. Since I had to be able to mass produce this project, I used my Gypsy and Cricut rather than doing everything with Spellbinders.

I chose Sweet Blush and Berry Sorbet as the colors for this baby shower, as evidenced in the card I already created here. I used the Scattered Showers and Additions stamp sets... So perfect! The party info is on the back.

I got the clothespins at a dollar store and used Rose Tea Glimmermist to give them a slightly pink hue. There is magnet adhered to the back so the clothespin can be stuck to a refrigerator.

I plan on making a banner for the party with the same idea... We'll see if I actually get it done... I feel like there's always so much for me to do!


{Supplies--all Papertrey Ink unless noted}
  • Cardstock: Sweet Blush, Berry Sorbet, Stamper's Select
  • Stamps: Scattered Showers, Scattered Showers Additions
  • Ink: Berry Sorbet, Sweet Blush, Tuxedo Black (Memento), Wheat (Versamagic)
  • Ribbon: Sweet Blush and Berry Sorbet Satin, as well as Sweet Blush and Berry Sorbet Swiss Dot... I ran out of the satin!
  • Cricut Cartridges (Provo Craft): Birthday Bash (plain and scalloped circles) and Plantin Schoolbook (oval)
  • Other Tools: clothespins, Rose Tea Glimmermist (Tattered Angels)

These are so sweet! What a great idea - they would make darling birth announcements too. The ribbon and scalloped edge are perfect for this project.
