Baby Card

Hey everyone I have been wanting to blog this card for a while because I was so excited to make it as it meant my cousin finally had her baby and we finally found out that she had a baby girl! She was one of the few people who was patient enough to wait and let the gender of her child be anonymous, honestly I don't know how she had the will power I would so want to know.

Anyway, life has been super busy so it has taken me a few months since her birth to get this posted to show you all but I finally found a few seconds. So without further ado this is the card I made to congratulate my cousin and her husband on their beautiful baby girl :)

I loved creating this card but I loved going and meeting my little second cousin in the flesh even more so here is a photo of my first cuddle with her.

I also dabble in graphic design a little and created the birth announcement for this little angel and since I'm sharing more then just the card I figured I may as well share this too though I have erased last names out of respect of my cousin.

So there we have it little Ava Kate and a few of the things I have put together in honor of her arrival I couldn't be prouder of my cousin and just wish her and her little family lived a little closer so I could stalk them more often thank goodness for facebook in that respect :)

Have a beautiful day everyone and I will see you next time

Crazy Crafters May Blog Hop

Welcome once again to the Crazy Crafters Blog hop! This month we wanted to show off some of the things that can be accomplished with the ever awesome Stampin' Up! Framelits! I personally love them and anything to do with the big shot in general really I find them so versatile and just love it when I stumble across a new way to use them. I hope the projects you find on this blog hop can inspire you to try something different with your Framelits!

You should have just left the ever talented Michelle Mills at Hello Day Cards if so you are on track if not don't worry you wont miss a thing just use the full line up at the bottom to navigate your way back and hop on track.

My card this month was inspired by a card I stumbled across on Pinterest you can see the blog featuring the card here. I saw this card and just knew I had to try the technique it looked to cool not too!

I apologise for the lovey dovey card this blog hop but as I just got engaged my mind couldn't think of any of the Framelits to work with except the hearts so if your not a lovey dovey person please bear with me and try to just enjoy the technique ;)

I love how this technique is only truly shown as the card is opened, I just think it turn what looks like simple layering when closed into something a little bit cooler.

So there you have it that is my attempt at hopefully showing all you amazingly crafty people a slightly different way to work with your framelits.
