Cards and Tags

This week I started working on projects for my first vendor show in December.  Before I did, though, I needed to make a couple of cards and a thank you gift.

The cards include a thank you card for a little girl and two belated birthday cards.  So that there is no question, I purchased the papers from Close To My Heart.  They came in separate paper packs. 

First, for my special friend, Faith:
I hand stamped the hearts and embellished with glitter (which is still everywhere and my boys are still covered in it!),
Next, two belated birthday cards:
I hand-stamped the flowers, the background of the tan cardstock, and the phrase "much happiness".  I doubled layered the flowers to give them a little more dimension.  The picture is a little blurry.  I took it while holding a squirming baby.  Lol!

This card is completely hand-stamped.  Each cardstock was a solid color and I stamped the backgrounds, flowers, and phrase "much happiness".  I embellished the flowers and bottom half of card with rhinestones.
As I am typing, we are packing up for a weekend at Possum Kingdom Lake.  Our neighbor, Kenny, is being kind enough to keep an eye on our four-legged kids.  I made him two types of muffins, raspberry white chocolate and crumble-topped raspberry (the raspberry white chocolate were delish!!!).  I decorated each ziplock bag with a 4x4 tag in paw-themed cardstocks and then decorated the gift bag.  Each tag was embellished with varying sizes of paws that I cut out from the cardstock scraps.  I adhered them to the tags with three dimensional foam squares.  Very easy and very cute!  The gift bag would have come out cuter, but the babies were in desperate need of a nap ;)

Please look past my empty k-cup carousel in the background!!! ;)

Check back for items that will be featured at the December 4th vendor show.  I'll have sets of notecards, gift and luggage tags, Valentine's Day card, and more for purchase.  I'll also be displaying my custom invitations and announcements for order as well as diaper cake centerpieces.  Hosting or attending a baby shower soon?  I'll have handmade boppy covers and burp cloths that can be made to coordinate with the baby's nursery, shower theme, or better yet, with a a handmade diaper cake by Escamilla Designs!!

Diaper Cake Centerpieces and Baby Shower Invites

I had so much fun making these diaper cakes!  I made six "mini" cakes wrapped in cloth diapers.  I topped them with wooden letters to spell out the baby's name.  Each "mini" with a wooden letter is $15.  ("Mini" cakes without letters are $10.)  I'll discount the price for the purchase of multiple letters.
 For the same shower, I made three other centerpieces.  They were each topped with sailboats which is the nursery theme.

Each diaper cake has approximately 28 size two diapers rolled around a 9 oz. bottle, wrapped with receiving blankets and tied with ribbon.  I embellished each one with different baby "necessities" like bibs, teethers, pacifiers, rattles, and so much more!  My favorite are bootie rattles!  They are shown on the first diaper cake.  If they had two more sets I would have purchased them for my boys, too! 

I can make the diaper cakes to your specifications: diaper brand and size, colors, themes, etc.  Prices vary based on your specifications.

I also enjoyed making these baby shower invitations for the highly anticipated Atticus Oliver Cruz.
  I love the jungle theme!  This specific invite is 5x7 and costs $2.50 per invite (including envelopes in a coordinating color).  I apply a discount for quantities of ten or more.
