My Favourite Things...a baby gift project for a friend!

Hey stampin' friends! I worked on this project for a friend this weekend and I thought I would share it with you! My friend and co-worker, Jen, is expecting her second child very soon...a little boy. So exciting!!!! She asked if I could make 5, 5x7 panels to fit inside a frame that she has, to hang it in the baby's room. She has decorated the baby's roon in brown and blue, so I used MME 6x6 paper pad Stella Rose, Hazel pad and she asked that it have a bit of a sports related theme and she wanted some stars in there too.

So, this is what I came up with using some of the My Favorite Things, Pure Innocence stamp sets. I "modified" two the PI stamps into boys and use a few Boy with Dog stamps too. One is actually a digi image from Heather Ellis's Etsy shop. I also used several of my MFT Die-namics dies.

This is the PI Tree Swing set. The leaves are from The Flower Trio and Leaf Die-namics set and I also used the scalloped ribbon border die and Fresh Cut Grass Die-nmaics die with My Favorite Felt.


This is the PI Nap Time stamp set and modified the hair and I used one of the dies from the Sweet Stack Die-nmaics set.


This is a digi image. I used My Favorite Felt and the Flat-bottom cloud Die-namics and the Simply Scallop Die-namics.


This is the PI I get a Kick out of you set. I modified it into a little boy. I used the Fresh cut Grass Die-nmaics die and My Favorite felt. I also used the speech bubble die from the Say What Die-namics and stamp set.

So there ya have it! I am quite happy with how it turned out. I love this paper pad but sadly it is all gone now. I just might have to get another one,smile! Well, I hope Jen likes it. I am going to bring them to work and give them to her today! I will ask her take pic of them in the frame and I will show you how it looks all together!

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek!

Have a stampin' great day!

This is a wonderful project & I love the way you have made it so personal - a tremendous keepsake for the little lad. The colours are so well co-ordinated & I absolutlely love the way you have varied each panel's layout & yet kept the horizontal strip element on each which really adds cohesion.
