The other day I received an invitation in the mail for a baby shower for my sister-in-law who is due with twins this summer. Tucked in the envelope along with the invitation was a bookplate that read, "This book belongs to ____________ It was a gift from ____________" and a request to bring a favorite book to help grow the babies' library. I love this idea and I wish I had thought of it for my sister's shower in March. If you would like to use this idea for a shower you are planning there are a multitude of sellers on Etsy selling book plates. The following are a few of my favorites: Taylored Arts, Taylor Made Designs, Pixels Plus Paper, Paper and Ink Studio, and Stasia Burrington Illustrations.
Taylored Arts has generously donated a download-able Poppy Girl Stationary set for one lucky Namesake reader that includes, 1 sheet small gift tags, 1 sheet large gift tags, 1 sheet misc. gift tags and book mark, 1 sheet flat note card- prints 4 per sheet, 1 sheet folded note card, 1 sheet background pattern, 1 sheet bookplates, and 1 sheet half sheet flat note card.
