hello there


Who doesn't love gold, grey, and minty blue??  I sure am in love with the combination.  Here is a newish design I created.  It's inspiring some changes in my shop.....



Have a happy Monday, y'all!

congratulations cards

One of my favorite clients had me make congratulations cards to give to new parents.  She wanted boy themed, girl themed, and gender neutral themed cards.  I had a blast making these and am thinking of making more to post in my etsy shop.... what do you think??

baby book

I'm just popping in to share some pictures of a recent baby book I made. Enjoy! :)

 Here's the cover. I used the SNAP binder and it worked perfectly.  I just added some gold and cream twine and was done.
 
The binders come with some patterned paper (like the polka dot below) and I used Elise Blaha Cripe's Project Life patterned paper to supplement.  For the first page, I sewed on a small sheet with the birth information.  

The book is divided into three sections: letters, pictures, and keepsakes.  


pocketed page protectors for photos with journaling cards:

 
In the keepsakes section, there is a pocket for ultrasound pictures, birth announcement, first birthday, and special cards.

This book was super fun to make - simple, sweet, and easy to use.  Score!
