Baby baby!

We have a sweet and wonderful family member who is having her first baby in a few weeks.  She and her terrific husband know they are having a little girl, and we are all very excited to meet her.

I love making baby things, especially something personalized.  The saying I used was online, but I'm not sure where.  I am borrowing it for this sign.

I started with a round piece of chipboard...

...and painted it a neutral country tan color.

Isn't this stamp sweet? I stamped over one of my favorite papers, and then used a pink flower brad to put over that stamped flower on the dress.

Love that name! I used two different font stamps to make it. Note to self: use StazOn ink next time.  I ended up putting embossing powder on top and setting it with heat, and it finally worked out (whew).

Remember the dress stamp? I used the flower brad to attach it to a clear circular piece of acetate. I then attached that under the name with a 3D foam square for dimension.  I hand wrote the little saying underneath...

Added a few tiny buttons and a flower charm on the hanger, and I'm finished!  I love the saying, don't you?

  1. That is adorable! And the saying is perfect. Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving.

  2. Sweet and charming. You have such a great eye.


I won't deny it, I love comments! Thanks...
