Dedicated to Dawn Papertrey Ink Blog Hop {New Little Bundle}


I'm so thrilled to be participating in today's special Papertrey Ink Blog Hop for papercrafter and product designer extraordinaire, Dawn McVey! You can read about all of the details HERE. She has just undergone her transplant surgery and it has been so wonderful to see her smiling face post-op! She is such an inspiration to me as a papercrafter and a person! She is beautiful inside and out and I am fortunate to be able to call her a friend! That is why I love this industry so much...I have made lots of amazing friends!
We Love Dawn

 We are showcasing some of Dawn's amazing products that she has designed and I am a HUGE fan, so it wasn't hard to look through my stash to find some goodies to create a baby card. Most of the participants are most likely making cards FOR Dawn, but today's card is for another friend. I will be making another card just for her later. Dawn embodies everything that involves kindness and charity, sharing handmade kindness and love, so I didn't think she'd mind.
To begin, I chose to use Gran's Garden to build a pretty floral arrangement. I stamped out all of my images and then cut them using the Coordinating Die Cuts. I already had the Made With Love stamp and Tag Die out from making a project which you can see HERE, which is also dedicated to Dawn. I thought that the pretty flowers would look nice built on the tag base.

The tag is threaded with some Aqua Mist Stitched Ribbon and then tied shut using a snippet of Rustic Cream Button Twine and a Button. I also added some of the polka dot images from Made With Love at the top of the vellum using Fresh Snow ink.

Another one of my go-to sets for babies is the Boutique Borders: Baby mini stamp set. I just love this particular sentiment because this gift is for a mommy-to-be before she delivers her baby. I Die Cut the label and then stamped the sentiment onto a strip of Stamper's Select White Cardstock using grey ink. The label portion is embossed in silver for a professional look. I popped everything up using foam squares for some dimension. I spritzed the entire tag with some shimmer spray for shine.

I layered the tag onto a piece of Aqua Mist Chicken Scratch Gingham paper with a vellum overlay. I also did some zig zag machine stitching to add to the handmade charm.

You can see how the tag coordinates with the handmade items I made for the baby. If you'd like to head to my sewing blog, Thimbles and Thread, you can see all of the other handmade items I made as well.
Here is a quick peek at the "Baby's First Year" flip booklet that I made as well.




I couldn't resist sharing the shoes that I made. I just love how they turned out! Thanks for fluttering by!
