A New Little Someone

Baby cards are so fun to make and lucky for me I have several friends having babies this summer. I made this card for a friend to give to one of her friends having a little girl. I love working with bright colors, pink and turquoise seems to be one of my most used combinations.

I used the New Arrival cartridge for the Cricut to cut out the baby outfit and hanger. I’m not sure if you can tell from the picture but I used a pop dot on the top of the outfit to give it a little dimension.

Welcome to my blog!

Welcome to my adventure into the blog world. I’ve been wanting to start a blog for about two years and finally ran out of excuses of why I couldn’t do it!

My first card is a Thank you card dedicated to all the wonderful blogs out there that has inspired me and helped me become a better papercrafter.  This card uses a stamp set by one of my favorite stamp companies, Papertrey Ink.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you come back.
