Baby Shower Printable

Oh, you guys.  This printable gave me angst.  Actually, it would be more correct to say that this is a project in which I created a whole lot of unnecessary angst for myself.  From which I am trying to learn.

Tomorrow, or possibly Friday, I'll write about the angst in a do that thing update, but for today, I'd like to show you a fun, printable, fill-in-the-blank, baby shower note card that I created for the lovely Jamie who threw a fantastic, beach-themed baby shower for her friend Natalia and who, by the way, has also been wonderfully gracious in waiting out my many months of indecision regarding this project.

Jamie used the printables in place of a guest book.  After her guests had completed their cards she punched holes in the corners, tied them together with ribbon, and gave them to the mom-to-be as a mini-book of best wishes and baby predictions.

The version I sent to Jamie was a diy, colour-free version, but for today's post I've added a colourful option as well.

If you find yourself in the planning stages of a baby shower and would like to download my fill-in-the-blank baby shower card, you'll find it here (the colour-it-yourself version) and here (the colourful version).

Just one more quick note -- The printable file contains a two-page pdf.  To create the card, print the first page of the pdf on one side of your cardstock and the second page on the other side of the same sheet of cardstock.  Then fold in half and you're done!
    hugs,
    Christie

    1. What a great idea! I wish I knew someone who was having a baby so I could use it.

      I've been waiting for this ever since I saw this featured on the C.R.A.F.T blog.
      I will be doing this for my daughter's baby shower this month.
      Love it!

    6. This is awesome! It's exactly what I've been looking for: interactive since guests can color it, includes predictions AND best wishes for mama, annnnd allows guests to suggest some things for baby like favorite books. So perfect - thanks for creating and releasing this download for free!
