Our assignment was to create a Baby or Wedding ensemble. What a great idea. It seems like someone in my family or at work is either having a baby or getting married. How about you? So hop through and see all the great ways that Creative Cuts and More can help make your gift giving a little more creative.
I decided to go with a mini-album and card. I just love mini-albums. And so do new mothers and grandmothers! Nothing better than having a little brag book tucked away in your purse to whip out at anytime to show off that new baby. It couldn't be easier to put one of these together as a gift using CCM products.
There are several options. You can build your own album! For mine I purchased 2 chipboard covers and baby blue pages for the inside. You decide what colors you want when you order. I actually ordered enough cardstock pages to glue 2 pages together at a time to make mine even sturder on the inside. The holes are already punched and pages already scored. Check out all of the 4 x 4" album options HERE. However if you like a larger album, you can check out all the album options HERE.
Here is a Baby Girl version:
My second project was created using the A7 Scallop Star Window Card. I just love all the window card options. I started out with a peice of DP the size of the front of my card. I placed it inside the card and traced the star shape on it. I used the pencil lines as my guidelines and trimmed the star shape out a little larger. I trimed it down to a 2.5" strip to create the border on the front of my card. Next ink up all the edges with brown ink. I tied the ribbon around as shown, punched out my brown scalloped border and adhered all of this to the front of the card using my t-square to keep it all lined up. I stamped the inside of the card with my sentiment and the smaller stars as shown below.
And to finish it off, I secured a little charm (Making Memories) with a tiny saftey pin and stamped the sentiment to the front.
