This week's theme at My Sheri Crafts is Baby! You'd think that'd be an easy one, but I ended up with three LOs that I just didn't love. Finally I made this simple design of my mother holding her first granddaughter. Hannah is 9 days old here, and she's wrapped up in my baby blanket.

Basic Grey Wholy Cow! rub-ons #293
Spellbinders Nestabilities: Circle LG and Scalloped Circle LG

Ma Petite Artiste

Here's Hannah at 2 1/2 painting. Love the picture she made me, so I mimicked it with cuts!

(My Little Artist)


Paper: red, green, light green, brown, blue and yellow cardstock; DCWV Animal Crackers
Create a Critter (frog and dragonfly) and Everyday Paper Dolls (grassy reeds) cricut cartridges
Nestabilities scalloped oval
Cuttlebug Spots and Dots embossing folder
Stickers: Sandylion Alphabet-Vintage Mix (Ma), Making Memories brad alphabet (petite), Making Memories Shimmer Holiday red (Artiste)
Making Memories Antique brass 1/8" brads
EK Success punches: Large dotted scallop and swiss cheese corner

Label Instructions:

Emboss a 4" x 5" rectangle using Spots and Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder. Cut a large oval using nestabilities, then emboss the edge using the nestie. This will flatten out the entire label, and your stickers will adhere well. Sand the circles lightly for more emphasis. Ink edges, then apply title. Done!

Cut card base was cut from Life is a Beach. All other cuts were from Create a Critter.

Hannah and her Bucket Full of Dinosaurs

When Hannah was 2, she loved dinosaurs! She has tons of these plastic ones, and her favorite thing to do was make them "kiss". She had about 5 brontosaurus, and would make the two biggest kiss like mommy and daddy, then she'd line up all the babies.

The inspiration for the page is a TV show called Harry and his Bucket Full of Dinosaurs, shown on Treehouse and YTV in Canada. It's a cute, cartoon show where the play dinos come to life in his imagination.

Paper: Colorbox (My Wildlife Paper pack) and solid cardstock
Ink for edges
All shapes cut from Cricut Create a Critter
Font is Missy BT, cut with SCAL2: Blue is normal, white is shadow 4.5, light blue is 9; everything welded.

Thanks for looking!

Baby you can Drive my Car!

Oh Baby! Was this one ever fun to do! I scraplifted this design from summer 2010 Scrapbooking and Beyond, but my pic is from 2008 when Wiggles was 9 months old (wow, what a healthy sized baby! LOL) I rarely fussy-cut photos, but this one begged for this treatment!

Paper: NRN Designs and solid cardstock
Title: "Baby" from Gypsy Wanderings (cricut), "car" from Nursery Rhymes, "you can drive my" are stickers
Tree: Zooballo; Sun: Gypsy Wanderings accented with Straw distress Stickles
