Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop August Baby

Welcome to the Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop. This month joining our team is our Guest Designer, Rochelle Blok. Welcome Rochelle, I can’t wait to see what you have created for us.

This month’s theme is anything related to babies or kids sets. I decided to go with a baby theme as I got a sweet set recently and I wanted to try it out. It’s so sweet it just happens to be called Sweet Baby.

Sweet Baby Clear-Mount Bundle

I liked this set for all the different elements,I liked the idea you can cut a cute baby blanket out of some designer series paper and wrap it around the baby. You can also add a hat or a headband. I love all the sentiments included too, so let me show you what I created today.

I made the “It’s a boy!” card first, but then I had to make one to say “It’s a girl!” A simple design, not much to this card but the end result is so lovely, a perfect card for any parents to be!

I used coordinating card stock to the Twinkle Twinkle DSP, Gray Granite card stock for the base of my cards and either Pool Party or Petal Pink for the Stitched Label Framelit cut out. On previous blog posts I mentioned that the Stitched Label Framelit was going to be a new favourite of mine and I think I have used it several times since receiving it! Such a versatile set. If you don’t yet have it, I bet it will be on top of your wishlist soon!

The DSP I have used is part of the Twinkle Twinkle set. There are some really pretty papers in this range, perfect for baby cards!

Let’s talk embellishments…No card in my opinion is quite complete without some sort of embellishment! I have used the silver and pool party twine on my boy card and silver and petal pink twine on my girl card. This twine is so pretty and super easy to use. I love it! I added some little Night of Navy stars to me boy card using the Twinkle Twinkle Builder Punch. The stars on the girl card are using the Twinkle Adhesive Backed Sequins.

For a bit of fun, I stamped the cute verse on the base of the card in Gray Granite. Another favourite is my Classic Label Punch to cut out my “It’s a Boy and It’s a Girl” sentiments.
