Welcome, Little One

I am a little shocked that it has been almost a whole week since I have posted. I had a SU! workshop on Tuesday, so I was busy getting ready for that and then I decided to take a little stamping break. I am re-reading "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" before the movie comes out. I only have a few pages left and now I am left feeling sad that I am done, so I guess I will re-read the 7th book as well.

Today's sketch is so fun with all of the layers and circles. I made a scrapbook page for one of my workshop projects that incorporated this paper and stamp set. As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew that that "idea" would work well for this card. Although this paper doesn't scream baby, necessarily, I like how the page and the card turned out. I will probably recreate the page, since it got sent home with one of my guests.

When I first saw the "Urban Oasis" paper, I knew it was a definite "must-have". It was on my first order when it became available, yet this week was the first time I have ever used it. Shame on me, especially since it is retiring in a few short days.



I started out by using different patten papers to build the base and then worked on the circle details. I stamped the sailboat three times; once in Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze and Basic Gray. I trimmed the pieces out to create the multi-colored sailboat and raised it up with dimensionals. The star was simply stamped and then punched and mounted onto a white circle. I chose to use my 1 3/4 inch circle punch for the circles. I finished it off with a bit of Baja Breeze ribbon and a few Kiwi Kiss Courduroy Brads for a little texture.
Next week is the last week of school, so I need to get my rear in gear and get some end of school gifts put together. I will share them as I get them done!

Incredibly cute! I would never have guessed that paper could make such a cute baby card! I am the same in that it was the first paper I bought, and it now sits unopened...actually I ordered two of them - both need to be used! Thanks so much for the cute idea!

I have been looking everywhere for ribbon that says "Welcome, Little One." Did you make it or buy it?
