This is a gift I made for my cousin Theresa , that is expecting her 1st baby this year! We are so very excited for them, and that got me thinking, (yes, I know very dangerous) what was I going to make!! Of course she would expect nothing less than something hand crafted being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. SO I started looking for ideas and had came across several "Family Frames" and such, then the light bulb moment came, they already had her name picked out to be Kaylie, I can make a frame and have her name in it! So here is what I came up with! I love how it turned out!
At first I was going to do a 12"x12" layout, but after starting to do all the squares they seemed to fit better on a 8 1/2"x11", plus this benefited me as well, who knew it could be such a challenge to think of different layout/ designs for all these squares. I also wanted it to look a little worn, so with the Stampin' Up! Cutter Kit, I distressed all the edges of the Melon Mambo and the Flirtatious DSP. Then I sponged the edges of the Flirtatious DSP. Then on the Letters for her name I used the Lovely Letters Alphabet Set, I just love this set it is so elegant, it is hard to tell but I did different backgrounds behind the letters in the opposite color of what the letter was stamped. Then I used my 2-Way Glue Pen around the outer edge of the circles and put Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to make them pop out some more!
Here are a couple of close up shots!!
For the small "love" tag above & the "baby" tag below, I used the Stampin' Up! Word Window Punch and then attached it to a post it note and put it back in the punch to make it smaller. Also below the little frame around the "baby tag" I used the Decorative Label Punch and did the same thing attaching a post note and turned to punch a smaller frame!
