  • Well get comfy because I have a jam packed post for you today, and let me tell you, you won’t want to miss any of it!

    There is nothing like welcoming a new baby into the world!

    This month is the baby shower for my brother & his girlfriend, hence my total baby mode, and “odd” additions to this month’s release! As their little bundle of joy approached delivery, I needed to create some baby themed items for the baby shower, and the birth of the baby, which is going to be a girl. After all the hard work of me creating items to use for these special events about to take place in MY family, decided I wanted to “add” to the baby theme items I had created to the store! Maybe you all can find them useful at some point in your own lives 😀

    You may know that years ago, in Feb 2008, that I designed a tutorial for the onesie shaped card I had designed. I’ve been asked for YEARS to make this available in the PDF, and other Cut File formats. Well, now I finally can!

    Lil’ One-sie $2.50

    I designed this particular onesie card years and years ago! It has since become so popular, and so highly requested in these usable formats, that I had to finally give in!

     This card comes complete with all the little decorative details that are sure to make this a PERFECT 10!

    Whether it’s a bouncing baby boy…

    I used the straight edge details to embellish the baby boy onesie. Complete with lil’ button like brads. The sailboat was made using simple shapes.

    or a heaven sent little girl…

    (I used the Delivered with love sentiment from Bringing Home Baby ©)

    I used the scallop edge details for this one 😀 

    Then this is the perfect addition to your collection for the NEW! addition into your life!

    This baby onesie shaped Pretty Pieces Cut File is the perfect shaped card/tag for welcoming any baby boy or girl! Make a stunning baby shower invitation, baby announcement, or set of thank you cards for a new mom!

     Completed Card Size: 5 1/4 inches tall 4 inches wide (size can be altered :D)

    So let me share my ideas with you 😀

    Pretty in Pink

    This is the gift ensemble I made for my new little niece to be.

    This is the baby carriage I made using the Bouncing Baby Buggy ©

    This is the most amazing template when welcoming a new baby!

    Perfect for baby shower centerpieces, or presenting a gift.

    The details of this are truly stunning 😀

    Here is the “hood” of the buggy

    I used the amazing Rosey Posey Rosettes © for the pretty pink flower details on this, all the way around.

    All the decorative layers are provided with the file. I chose to use the Down to Earth © patterned paper, which you’d never think of as a “baby” pattern, but it so works with this.

    The way it folds together is so perfectly pretty and lends itself to many alteration ideas 😀

    Here I added the Border Builders Open Scallop © around the hood, and trim around the buggy basket.

    The wheels have some added big bling to the center.

    Think of all the amazing carriage you can create with this template!

    To add to my gift set I design a set of Baby Booties that make the perfect baby favor.

    I’ve seen other baby booties out there, and more often than not they are Mary Jane style shoes, and are all one piece. I knew I wanted to design a fun version that was gender neutral, and offer a variety of ways to design/decorate it.

     This adorable baby bootie cut file was fashioned after the old fashioned first walking baby shoe! This bootie style is perfect for both a baby boy or girl! With 2 simple pieces, and all the decorative elements you need to make an adorable, realistic baby bootie, this is sure to make everyone say AWE!

     This make the perfect presentation for a sweet gift for the new mom (like jewelry), a special gift for a new baby, or of course the perfect baby shower favor! You could even use it for a 1st Birthday!!

    Completed Bootie Size: 3 1/2 Inches Long, 2 1/2 Inches Wide, 1 3/4 Inches Tall

    So here are the completed bootie details of both the boy & girl samples I created

    I made the back of the bootie in chocolate, and cut the front from a pink cardstock. The decorative layer was cut from the same pink as the front of the shoe. I stamped some polka dots from the Fancy a Cuppa? © onto the decorative layer.

    Pretty pink & brown ribbons tie the shoes together 😀 So sweet.

    Now for the boy set

    Here I made the booties boyish. I cut the front from white, and the back in blue. I used the plaid pattern from the Bee Mine © collection. 

    Instead of ribbon for laces, I used cut rounded strips of the patterned paper, with brads to make a strap.

    You can even add a cut lil’ sole to the bottom of the booties 😀

    Stuff your booties with all sorts of fun things!
