Baby Onsie Card with Tutorial

I have been making this style of baby card for years and I was originally inspired by a tutorial from Lauren Meader with punches.  I can't find the tutorial any longer and I now use my spellbinders circle dies (so much easier to get through both layers than with punches) so I thought I would create a video on how to make this card.  I have used it for shower invites, banners, and just about anything baby related.  It's super cute and fairly easy to do.  I forgot to take a picture of the inside but I used the "twinkle, twinkle" set from unity, it is the perfect sentiment for a baby card and lately with my family I have needed a lot of them.  The middle "baby" stamp came from a Unity grab bag that I won on FWF and its from one the the kit of the month sets but I can't remember which one.

Proud to be a big sister

Here is another layout from my scrapbooking retreat.  I love how it turned out even though it was so far from what I planned but the banner became my favorite part.  I brought my MS punch around the page set with me and didn't bring the measurements so I had to guess.  I was about 1/8" off and needed to cover the boo boo so I came up with the banner to fix it.  These were just extra pictures of my daughter holding her baby bother when he was little.  She loved to hold him and help take care of him, she was really into her own "babies" at the time and would treat them like they were real.  

Supplies used: MS doiley punch, Spellbinders circles, stars, font 1 lowercase, DCWV Baby Boy and Pastel stack

Twinkle Twinkle

The first time I saw the twinkle twinkle stamp I just knew I had to have it for my son's album and all the baby cards I like to make.  I just got back from a retreat and made a huge dent in the stack of photo's for my son's album (he is now four so its time to finish LOL).  In some ways I am glad his album is behind because I so many better supplies than when he was born but it also is hanging over me to get it finished.  He just loved playing with the cats and would crawl over and lie down on them (the cats were so patient with him). Here is a project from the weekend retreat I went on, I got a total of 17 pages done and got the rest of the album planned/organized so it should go much faster from here.

Never Ending Card

I made this card a while ago for a Never Ending Card challenge, its not my favorite too be honest but its been a super busy week at work and I am leaving for a weekend retreat and have been trying to get ready in between working 60 hours this week.  I just hate to miss a FWF so I am posting this but I am packing a bunch of unity and I can't wait to create something.

Supplies used: MME paper, Unity Stamps, Spellbinders Labels 18
