Jackie's Shower

A few weeks ago I was able to host a Lingerie Shower for my great friend Jackie. Her wedding colors are black and white so I was really excited to stay within her theme. I spent weeks looking for a perfect invitation and I could never find what I wanted.
Finally, I decided to take matters in my own hands and just make them myself!! I went to Sam Flax and found some paper that matched my theme. This was my first attempt at the invitation. I liked it but it didn't have the lingerie feel that I wanted it to.

I also decided to make decorations for the party. Jackie's invitations for her wedding have a damask pattern on them so I decided I needed a stamp to match them. I traced the pattern from her invite and then transferred it to the stamp carving block. This was quite a difficult stamp to carve. I actually ended up carving it twice because I wasn't happy with the first one. It took me an hour to carve the second one but it was worth it! Then I made some printed paper with my new stamp.

I used Amy Butler's Paper Iris pattern to cut out flowers from my printed paper. Once I had everything cut out, I used my sewing machine to stitch everything together.

I hung all of the decorations over the counter where all the food was. I was so busy getting things ready for the shower that I forgot to take a picture of everything set-up!! Trust me, it was super cute! It was a great shower and everyone really enjoyed themselves! Here's a pic of some of the girls who attended. Jackie is the one in the blue dress!
