Now even if you don’t know someone who is having a baby this set is still AMAZING 😀 If you purchased the Bouncing Baby Buggy © template you will definitely want this set too!! 8afe94f40a6ebe7deda2400eb2d61e10_image_600x547.jpgSo many options!! There is an amazing group of sentiments here. Open line art for those who love to color, and of course solid images for easy color fill-ins, or those who’d rather not color. There is just so much you can do with this set. What is not to love? If you have NO other baby sets, then this it THE ONE. Even if you do have other baby sets I’m certain this has something NEW! or special to offer to your collection :DNow on to boy themes.Many “boy” themes and gifts can be difficult. This set has made it easy for me to get inspired to finally do some BOY stuff!! Now a lot boy themes fall around “boat/sea/beach” and I thought that using the Bouncing Baby Buggy © template to create a sail boat would be PERFECT!! OK I was honestly challenged by Kristin to do it, and after about 20 minutes this was done 😀sail-boat.JPGYES! That IS the Bouncing Baby Buggy © template!!! I just cut it down,about 1 inch above where it tapers…..scored at a 1/2 inch in, and folded the top over to the outside.I told you this template was VERY versatile! I have much more to share with that soon :DI sponged the edges for a rustic look 😀 Added a simple cardstock strip around the bottom.My son is named Noah. I would have LOVED something like this back then! (I didn’t papercraft at that time). I’m sure I could make this an ARK now that I sit here typing!!!! OH!! I may just do that as a personal challenge!!! Sorry, my brain went in another direction-like it usually does. One idea sparks another…..My sail….new-boat-baby-2.JPG(Note: honestly I had NOTHING baby on hand so I put in some booties and cadbury eggs. Sorry! LOL! But sometimes you have to improvise! LOL!)I had a craft stick, which I stuck into a Styrofoam egg (cut in half). I hot glued that to the bottom of my sailboat.baby-mast.JPGHand cut with sail using my Coluzzle oval template. Stamped my adorable mini Stork image ( I so truly LOVE it!!!), which was colored with Copic markers. I then faux stitched it and applied a linen bkgd stamp to it. WAY TOO EASY!! You can make a TON of these. Adhered it to the stick with clear glue dotsIs this not AMAZING??? boat-delivered.JPGI created a life saver (whatever that thing is called!) using the sentiments in the set, combined with some circles I cut! Isn’t that a cute idea? May Arts has some natural burlap that I used to tie it on to my boat (adding dimensionals of course). I am in love!Now how about a card? Now all these coordinating stamps/templates/paper/and cut files are meant to make the entire process of papercrafting FUN, EASY and AFFORDABLE! You don’t have to use them on *just* templates!!They make perfect cards too!How about the Boy themed card?Little Boy Blue…..bouncing-baby-boy.JPGThis carriage is ADORABLE! Its so cute and easy to use.I stamped the outlined carriage, then stamped the solid carriage pieces inside for EASY color. I did cut it out and put it on dimensionals too. I believe in using as much dimension as possible. It really makes a card!boy-carraige.JPG Many of the sentiments were designed to fit in the center panel of the carriage!! I decided to use the Bringing Home Baby Boy © themed Pretty Printables paper for this! LOVE IT! It already looks stitched so the hard part is done 😀 Many of the patterns AREN’T just for baby! Be sure you check them out.carriage-boy.JPGI used a small SU! oval punch to create what looks like a baby in a blanket inside the carriage too! That was so simple but really adds to this.I used the Tag You’re It © cut files for this. I just resized the white layer to may my larger tag cut from blue. Easy peasy!Now you KNOW I had to throw a girly card in here too! Thank Heavens for Little Girlslheaven-girl.JPGAWE! That is all I can say when I see this one! SO girly!!Clean and simply sweet is never a bad thing-especially for baby themed projects.If you haven’t noticed… purple is my favorite color and it has been quite inspiring for me these days. A color I normally don’t take into my crafting, but an truly enjoying.I used the stitced plaid square of the Bringing Home Baby Girl paper for this one, and the Fanciful Flourishes (perfect match!) paper too. It is STUNNING!heaven-scent-cropped.JPGI simpley colored in my open line stork, and doodled her baby bag with my markers. She is cut out and on dimensionals too. She actually wasn’t too bad to cut out!!The flower adds to the softness and sweetness this has, as does the lace (something I rarely use but aways love to see other add) and flower frill.Supplies from todays post:
