Baby Keepsake


A friend of mine recently had a baby and I thought I'd make her a keepsake as a gift.

I bought a frame that could either be hung or kept standing. 

I began by choosing the paper. I wanted a pink/purple shade and the Trimcraft Pretty in Pink range was ideal for this, I added doilies and pearls from the same range. 

As I wanted to include the name, weight and date of birth I used alphabet dies for those. 

I arranged various elements inside the frame and then large paper flowers on the top of the frame to which I added glitter glue. 

I went to visit my friend yesterday and she loved the frame. Lillian was fast asleep - a beautiful baby.

Lone Reindeer - Christmas Wishes


Today, I'd like to share another card made with the First Edition Christmas Wishes pad. 

The focal point for this card is the stamped reindeer image which I have covered lightly with silver glitter glue to get a shimmer (see photo below).

I've used various papers from the pad to matt and layer then added some gems, bow and twine to embellish. 

Thank you for looking and any comments.
