When life gets busy, escape by crafting! And boy, has it been busy, Liam’s birthday, DH’s birthday, and uh oh yes, Christmas. AHHHHHH. I refuse to go nutty over Christmas, it’s not what it’s about. I decided today to take a wee break and pop over to Paper Craft Planet’s (PCP Colour Challenge Group), pcpcolor6 a fun escape.
Check out this inspiration photo from Baby Gap, courtesy of Katherine:
I saw a really cute bib-card tutorial on Patty Bennett’s blog, that I’ve been meaning to try for a while and when I saw Katherine’s challenge, well, I mean really, the time had come! I don’t own a scallop circle big shots die … yet LOL, so I used my nestabilities scallops instead. It adds a nice embossing too, but I think it turns out to be a much smaller card. I also did my best to use all of the colours, but after a few different attempts, I just went with marker-sized dots. Not sure why I went with Pink, everybody I know having babies are having boys. Oh well, pink is cute.
Here’s the front of the card:
Here’s the inside of the card. I used a little “clothing tag” that I had hanging around my scrapbooking supplies. I believe it was from Junkitz: Labelz.
Since it was fabric, I attached it with super sticky tape.
Okay, now back to the craziness of the Season!
1) Liam (3) awaiting Santa’s arrival. Insisting on wearing red, all red, today.
2) Finishing off copious amounts of cheesecake from DH’s Birthday.
3) Trying to keep the kids calm during this indulgent season.
