Oh baby

Making baby cards is for sure one of my favorite things. I like going all in with the cuteness. Nothing can be too cheesy for the celebration of the new little one in the world.

In addition to cards I like making gifts for the baby too. I think it is a nice memorabilia and also something unique in the sea of presents the family gets.

This summer a friend of mine had a little girl and after years of giving either crochet hat or a crochet bird rattle I decided to make something new.

So I made a rattler / teether toy. With a little crochet twist, of course. I love how it turned out. Hopefully it's also useful and brings joy to the baby too.

The card is made with patterned papers from the collection made for baby cards; Crate Paper Little You.

Happy Day Together

We recently had a little family photoshoot. My brother took photos of us in a pretty park. And boy was it fun! And the end results even better! We should make this a tradition...

And a super bonus of this? Lots of awesome pictures to scrapbook!

A challenge for a card maker

Could you make a card for me to give to a teen boy?

It gets me every time. Gives me anxiety. I think I am a good card maker when it comes to making girly, flowery, pink, cute and pretty cards. But to make a card for a boy? It is always a challenge for me.

But so far I have managed all of these challenges given. This time I made a card to my cousin's son for his confirmation, an occasion worthy of a winner's ribbon I'm sure.

The cut file is from Silhouette Design store and sentiment by yours truly.  Papers are plain cardstock.
And some ink splashes to make it a little edgier! I have to admit I love this look. And will for sure use this again when someone asks for a card for a boy.
