Carta Bella Paper: Baby Sleeping Door Hanger

Hello, Friends! I remember being a young mother and the struggle it was to get a baby or toddler to sleep. The last thing I wanted was a package delivery person to ring the doorbell and undo all of my hard work. Haha! Today’s project will solve that problem for you! It is a Baby Sleeping Door Hanger! Simply hang it on your doorknob when your child is sleeping and visitors will know to knock, instead of pressing the doorbell.

BABY SLEEPING DOOR HANGER

I cut the door hanger shape out using my Silhouette Cameo machine and then decorated it with the ADORABLE Carta Bella Paper Rock-A-Bye Boy collection. (To see a short video of this doorhanger coming together, check out the Echo Park Instagram account HERE.)

I cut out the cow from the 4×6 Journaling Card paper and then used the opposite Ledger patterned side for the background.

The moon was cut from the Fall is in the Air 6×6 paper pad using the Little Star Die Set. I added the Enamel Dots to the stars for a bit of fun! The “Dream Big Little One” banner and “B-A-B-Y” letters are both from the Element Sticker sheet. Everything is anchored on a die cut label (Stitched Label Nesting Die) cut form the Ultra White Felt Cardstock.

For the sentiment, I used the letter stickers from the Happiness is Homemade collection along with die cut letters (Navy Blue Felt Cardstock) using the Lincoln Uppercase Die Set.

Carta Bella Paper: Dream Big Baby Girl Layout

Sugar and spice and everything nice …. that’s what the Rock A Bye Baby Girl collection is made of!
The sweetness of this baby collection by Carta Bella Paper has me itching to pull out photos of my children when they were younger and get the photos scrapped that I have been neglecting for FAR too long.

When my kids were younger I would take a photo of them each month next to a favorite stuffed animal so that we could compare how they grew and changed each month. These photos of my daughter are from when she was three months old. (Awww, my cutie-Cam, with her sweet cheeks!)
jana-eubank-rock-a-bye-baby-girl-dream-big-layout-2-600
I stitched together a few of the banner stickers to adorn the corner of the design. I added the circular “Cute as a Button” sticker on top of the striped pennant with a foam square for a bit more dimension. The stitching around the edges of the paper remind me of all the homemade quilts, burp pads, and gifts that always come along with having a sweet new baby in the house.

The mini paper fan layered up with stickers and die cuts in the center of the page adds all kinds of fun dimension. I LOVE the new Mini Paper Fans!

Across the page, I added the rocking horse trimmed from the 3×4 Journaling Cards Paper along with a few stickers and the hearts from the new Enamel Shapes stickers. Underneath you can see a few patterned paper strips layered up over the top of a strip of vellum paper embossed with the Petite Bows Embossing Folder. Those sweet little bows are so perfect for a project about a sweet baby girl!

This page has so much fun texture! From the stitching, to the mini paper fans, to the popped up elements, shiny enamel shapes, and the embossed vellum … it was a lot of fun to put together!

Jungle Themed Baby Shower Banner

Last month I held a baby shower in my home for a girl whose family is very special to me. It was a lovely night celebrating a very special mom-to-be and a very special baby boy.

I created this banner to decorate my mantle and needed to share it with you because it is made using the super-cute cut files by LetteringDelights.com.

BABY BOY BANNER

I used a basic pennant banner shape as the base for each panel and then used the animals from the Lettering Delights Welcome to the Jungle Cut Set. The vines on the monkey, rhino, and elephant panels are from the Nancy’s Buddies Cut Set.

I also layered together a couple of punched hearts on the rhino panel and added some gems here-and-there on the giraffe and rhino panels for a bit of sparkle.

The banner was threaded together using jute string. In between each panel I added some knotted ribbons (American Crafts) and a large wood button from the Michael’s Dollar Bins.

Finally, I wanted the banner to have a layered feel, so I created a garland of jungle leaves to hang behind it. I cut this from a tropical leaf shape (Design #12444 by Jamie Koay) I found in the Silhouette Design Store and dotted cardstock by Bazzill that I purchased in packs at the American Crafts Warehouse Sale. Nothing complicated, just leaf cut outs strung on a piece of jute. Easy peasy!

You could create a matching invitation using the Lettering Delights Welcome to the Jungle graphics or you can do what I did (because I was short on time) and find one online that coordinates. I did THIS ONE that I found from JessicasInvites on Etsy.

I also found some free printables online that I used to create labels for all the different pies I served to the guests. The font I used here is the ZP Catawampus font by Lettering Delights.

PIE LABELS

I did happen to find some coordinating Jungle Baby Shower plates (didn’t get a picture of those) at Birthday Direct (Jungle Babies Baby Shower Party Goods). Everything looked so darling together!

My favorite game to play at a baby shower is one that my mom stumbled across somewhere pre-internet days. It’s a matching game. It’s great because you’re not tasting baby food or anything disgusting like that … however, it’s clever and the guests can be involved without too much thinking power.

I hang the words and numbers to cover the words on a big board we created YEARS ago using plastic adhesive hooks. It works well, because the guests can call out a couple of numbers, I uncover them Vanna-White-Style, … if they make a match, they receive a coordinating candy bar, and if not, we just cover the words up again for the next person to choose from. Here is a picture of the board.

BABY SHOWER GAME

jana-eubank-lettering-delights-baby-shower-game

And here is a list of the baby shower words we use with the coordinating candy bars. The guests always get a chuckle out of how the candy bars “go with” the baby shower words.

  • NURSING – Milky Way
  • BOTTLE – Baby Bottle Pops
  • NINE MONTHS – Rocky Road
  • UMBILICAL CORD – Long Licorice Rope (these are hard to find these days, but gas stations are your best bet)
  • EPIDURAL – Life Savers
  • CONCEPTION – Skor
  • OB/GYN – Butterfinger
  • CONTRACTIONS – Whoppers
  • BABY NAMES – Whatchamacallit
  • PACIFIER – Ring Pops
  • DIAPERS – Raisinets
  • HOSPITAL BILL – 100 Grand

Finally, I always love to hand something to the guests as a THANK YOU as they head back home. This time I was expecting 40+ guests, so it had to be something inexpensive. I bagged up some Dollar Tree popcorn (yummy stuff!) and created a tag on my Silhouette Cameo using the Lettering Delights Nancy’s Buddies images. Behind the tag, I tied on a smaller jungle leaf (cut out at the same time as the larger garland jungle leaves in a space leftover on the sheet).

SHOWER FAVOR

If you have a baby shower in your future, I hope this has given you some fun ideas to get started. I always have a blast putting together parties … decorating is my favorite part! Of course! 😀

Have a great weekend!
