Blog Hop

What a fun challenge this month!! I love taking different objects and altering them into fun things!! I have to admit I struggled a bit with this one because I kept picturing Nichole's adorable licorice my mind kept wanting to wander to Halloween and candy..However, once I looked through all my stamp sets the label stamps kept popping out to me for some reason..I then looked at my Halloween sets that just arrived today..(YIPPEE) and saw the word Boo..Right then..a BOO-BOO kit came to mind..Pretty simple but a fun little gift to give to young children or to even have around your home..
I took the label stamps from Spooky Sweets and Limitless labels to use as my band-aid holders. I took a piece of card stock, scored it at 1 inch lengthwise and then stamped the labels along the bottom of the fold. I then cut out each label making sure to not cut the bottom by the fold. Once you turn it over you will see the small pocket formed. Place a small dot of glue on each side to hold in place and slide band-aid in.
I used the Polka Dot Basics set to keep with the polka dot theme from the labels and stamped this pattern on the cover of my case, as well as in the inside. I created a small pocket for my band-aids on the inside cover. This helps to keep the band-aids in place without them sliding all over the place. I used the sentiment "Boo" from Spooky Sweets and also used the sentiment from Spooky Sweets II "Creepy Kitchen Collection" by taping off everything but the word "Kit" from Kitchen.
I'm so excited to see what everyone else has come up with!! Thanks for looking!!!

Bitty Baby Blessings..

Well, I'm officially an aunt for the 5th time and am so thrilled!! Alivia Grace was born on Aug. 14th!! She is just adorable and I am so happy for her parents..they are so excited to have her here!! I was in the baby mood so made a few cards using the Bitty Baby Blessings set from PTI. I have made this card once before but with different colors so thought I would change it up a bit.. I just love the little elephant in this set, along with the tiny baby face..I created the basket by punching out a small circle and then just cutting the top center half out for the baby to fit in to. I love the colors of this card and the simplicity of the design..It would make a great baby boy shower card..
The second creation I did was to make a small baby wash theme set. The little duck in this set works great with this theme. I took a small gable box and filled it with washcloths, little baby soap and shampoo and a tiny toy duck. I created the card using the the Bitty Baby Blessings patterned paper to coordinate with the box. The colors are a bit different for a baby but I thought it would be a nice change from the typical blue or pink or even green...I just love the small gable boxes too..they are the perfect size for all types of small cute!!Thanks for looking..
