Thanks to the girls on the Cricut MB informing everyone of the special that Big Lots has on the Disney Themed & Regular Cuttlebug Embossing folders, I was able to get some for myself. Each one is $2.00 each!
This is my submission for the Victorian Challenge at the SSPT Design Blog. I haven't found a photo to add to it yet, but when I find one it will be balck & white. Think of it as "New Age Victorian". Please check out the other designers projects at: http://sugarsweetpapertreats.blogspot.com/ TFL.
The shower went great! My SD loved everything and she received a lot of gifts for Rian. I received a lot of compliments about the decor especially the Candy Buffet. I wasn't able to take many pictures because I had such an active role in the shower, so most of the pictures posted will be the set up pictures. That's my SD in the hot pink dress with the sash on that her GM made and I decorated. TFL.
This is the sash that my SD's Grandmother made for her to wear during the shower. The ribbon is the left over ribbon from the Diaper Cake. I put her name & the rattles on it. I decided to add some paper butterflies and a few other items to the diaper cake. I used the MS punch. TFL.
I made this shirt for my DD who is both a Daddy's girl & a Mommy's girl. Most of the cuts are from the HM cart. I used SCAL for my DD's name. The metalliac purple made such a strong glare for the pictures, but the shirt is really cute. Her name is straight on the back of the shirt....the shirt was hanging crooked and it wouldn't hang right for me. I didn't get the rhinestones straight on the bag, but the quilted material of that bag just isn't easy to iron on. My DD loves it and wants to wear it tommorrow. TFL.
This chalkboard was orginally made by a member of the Cricut MB (Greenbean). She made it for National Scrapbooking Day. If you want instructions please look for her post under "crafting". I thought that this would make a nice addition to all of the other pink & brown things that I made for the baby shower. I used the wall vinyl on it so that after the shower I can pull the vinyl off and it can be used as a chalkboard in Rian's room. TFL.
This was just a simple basket from Babies R Us that I decorated a little with ribbon, HTV & iron on patches. I hot glued the patches on because I didn't think they would have stayed well with just ironing on the ribbon's surface. Later I will try to stuff all of the things that I have purchased for Rian inside the basket and add a nice tag from TBBM or another cart. TFL.
I took a break from all of the cute baby pink stuff and decorated these bags for my DD, and two of my God Daughters. I purchased the bags for $1.00 from the Dollar Tree Store. I used the font Chopin Script. I not going to give them the bags until I fill them with some goodies (lip loss, mirror & hand lotion, etc). TFL.
These were fun to do and this was my first time layering vinyl, so please don't double click, lol. I got the wording from other MB members that did oneies. I rally love that blue & green the most not only because I used two colors but because the blue is a shiny metallic blue. TFL.
This is the final page for the baby album that I made for my SD. I used my SU Build A Bear dies. If I have time I may add a few more pages, but right now my main focus is going to be on decorations for the baby shower. TFL.
I worked on my Sd's Baby album pages today. She wanted a page just for the baby's hand and foot prints. She works in a hospital and she is sure that they will do both for her. Now I only have one more page to do and that will be the parents page for the album. I will give her some scrapbooking supplies with her book so that she can continue to scrap pages for her daughter once she arives. TFL.
