Working on Monkey Stuff

My friend's daughter is having a baby and I have volunteered to make the shower invitations and favors.

The Mom to be has selected the "Pop Monkey" collection from Babies R Us for the baby's room and wanted the shower invitations to have the same theme and the chocolate chip and celery colors.

The first stamp set that came to mind was the Monkey Business stamp set which is retired. I bought this set with grand plans but never got around to using it or event mounting it. Well, it sure came in handy for this....
Here's what I have come up with so far. I have to keep it simple because I have to make over 50 invitations in a short period of time and these days I do not have alot of spare time. We'll see which version the new Mommy picks.

I have to say that normally I am not a fan of monkey, but the more I worked with this little guy the more I grew to love him. My favorite and easiest item is the favor box. I made it using the new Box #2 die from Sissix. This box is the easiest box ever, I could literally make boxes all day.

Thanks for stopping by.......


  1. Great job, Martha! I love the way you've coordinated the invitations and favors to the baby room decor! Too cute!

  2. Hello! I just found your post while looking for Baby Shower invitations and was wondering if you could tell me how you made the green part on the card on the left? I do a lot of card making using Stampin Up and know it looks familiar but can't quite place it! I'd love to make somethign similar for my sis-in-laws baby shower.
