baby frame

Its Sunday. The end of the week. Sunday is always sad for me.

I thought I would share the altered frame I made last week with all of you.

My friend Erin is due to have her first baby-a little girl. 

 I altered her this frame for part of her gift. Its by Bare Elements.

The DIVINE paper from Rubber Soul matched her room colors, to a ‘T”. I also thought the senitment from the Baby Shower  set by Green Grass was PERFECT for the focal point of this frame.

Another COOL detail……………the top right corner-has a $1 Key Tag! Remove the cover, and insert a photo, or bracelet, maybe a lock of hair! I tied on a flower and some ribbon-VIOLA!

The lower right corner has an acrylic frame by Making Memories, that I stamped a place for the stats of the birth !





She can add some chipboard letters, in the empty space once the baby is named. They are thinking Avery, but are unsure-Im not putting anything in glitter and glue yet!

I know I changed Amber’s name from Rebecca (during pregnancy) to Amber once she was born. LONG STORY!

I also liked Brielle, or Lily. But she didnt “look” like those either. Amber was PERFECT.

So, what’s so great?

I came up with this FABULOUS gift idea! Alter a frame to match the room, and in the photo insert I will place a YEAR membership to our area photo place, along with enough money to purchase a photo package!

Our Sears has a photo place that now offers these new photography gift cards! I know as a new mom I got Alexa’s photos done religiously for the first few years of life! I would have loved to not have paid a membership fee and get discounts and gift certificates to the photo place! Lets not say how awful I am about professional photos now! YIKES!!! Hangin my head in shame.

Since she has had/is having like 5 different baby showers due to spread out family/friends I hope my gift will stand out and be original! And get used!

Best part-the shower is 2 weeks away and Im not scrambling for a gift! GO ME!!! Im usually a last minute stamper, but am attempting to change that.

Id love to hear any original baby gift idea YOU have or had 😀

Thanks for reading
