Baby gift set

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

I had a video ready for today but YouTube has been down for maintenance or something for quite awhile so I can't upload anything in time. So, here I am sitting in my room/studio with the heavy thunder and lightning + rain outside (shivering dog under my desk included!) Thought I'd share with you this baby gift set I made for Isaac's 2nd birthday a couple of weeks ago. I loved Barb Schram's baby card here so much i had to case it :) I cut the little 'flag' on top with cuttlebug's tiny tags die set using some white foam & the cuttlebug then stamped the sentiment from Papertreyink's 'bitty baby blessings' stamp set. That set is a must have for baby everything!
Above is the box I custom made for this small pillow below:

All wrapped up nicely with tissue & kept folded closed with the punched out circle accent I stamped using the Just Rite stamper set. Love how I can personalise it :) Looks like it came from a boutique, eh? I save the tissue papers that the Papertreyink stamps come in, knew they'd come in handy one of these days *lol*

And there's the pillow! Recognise that fabric? Thanks Regina ;) I think it turned out pretty cute & i'm glad Isaac (and his mum) loved it! It's always nice to make something for someone from scratch & this set was one of them. Thanks for joining me today, I hope you're inspired to make something for someone today!
BTW Have you seen the number of ppl participating for sketch#12 over at Card Patterns this week? I mean wow!! We've even got a boy on the list *lol* (and he's good too!) Remember, this week's sponsor is Unity Stamp Co & there's also a guest designer spot up for grabs. GO!
Have a good one ;)
