Congratulations, New Baby x Two

Hello! Today I have a couple of baby cards to show you! The designs are identical, but I switched up the colors for a slightly different look.

The first one is very belated. Austin Peter was born nearly 6 months ago, so at least I'm getting this one to him before he turns 1... lol! He is our cousin's grandson, which I believe makes him Dan's and my cousin twice removed and Sabrina's first cousin once removed. To make it simpler, let's just say he's our cousin!


I used patterned paper from the new Double the Joy collection from Taylored Expressions. It contains patterns and colors suitable for both boys and girls. I've had the Target gift card for a few months now, but I couldn't find a card in my stash, so I finally decided to make one. Here's a detail shot of the gift card slipped inside the Library Pocket.


The next card is for my hairdresser who is due with her 3rd boy! She is due later this month. I had my last appointment with her before the baby and hand delivered this to her.


Here's a detail shot:

Hello! Welcome to Taylored Expressions April 2015 Release! All products that we have been peeking this week are now available in the TE store, HERE! Before you head off to shop, I have a final project to show you.

After completing the first month of my Project Life 2015 album in the 6" x 8" size, I decided to switch back to 12" x 12". I'm in the process of moving my January pockets, but in the meantime, here's my Week 6 page. I used the new Pockets & Pages - Stitched Essentials in several of my pockets.


Here's a detail shot showing the Stitched Essentials used (4x6, 3x4, tag and arrows) along with the Whimsy Alpha, P&P - February Script and the new Just Numbers set.


Here's another detail shot of the lower right portion of the spread. The banner flag in the lower left is from the Stitched Essentials die set as well.
