polka dots and rainbows

Last weekend, we threw a “Rainbow and Polka Dots” baby shower for one of our friends.  Of course, that meant I got to create some crafty stuff for the mom-to-be.

First off, I made her a rainbow diaper cake.  I used the “no roll” diaper cake tutorial which I got here.  I love combining various rainbow colours to come up with this fun diaper cake.

I used 12x12 cardstocks from various companies (mainly Stampin’ Up and DCWV).  The big flowers are cut outs from Stampin’ Up and the smaller ones are those canned Prima flowers from Michael’s which I have since forever.  So glad to finally be able to use them. 

The topper is a banner I made using My Creative Time’s banner dies and Papertrey’s Headline Alphabet dies.  I also used various ribbons and twines from my stash. 

Here's a top view of the cake so you can see the diapers….

This cake sat on my desk for a week before the party and I simply loved waking up to it!

Next up is a notebook for guests to write their well wishes and advice for the expectant parents.  I used various dies from Papertrey and MFT (Hanging Out, Heart to Heart, Flip Flops and grass dies) to create this fun laundry scene (as what my DD calls it).   

I carried the same baby clothes theme inside the book…

Next is a card I made for the parents-to-be, using the adorable giraffe from Papertrey's Sweet Baby set. 

I actually made a few to have on hand for the many babies that will be coming in the next few months…

Lastly is the dessert table… Fun rainbow colours with some sprinkles of polka dots!

I also dressed up some lollipops using this cute little lollipop holder which I got from My Creative Time. The tag is from Papertrey's Tiny Tags set. We gave this out to the guests, young and old alike.

Thanks for stopping by!
