Cricut: The Official Blog
Monday, March 14, 2011
This week's blog candy is the Good Day Sunshine paper pack plus some coordinating Bo Bunny cardstock. To enter, follow this blog and leave a comment each day this week.

Be ready to dazzle at your next baby shower with this sweet 2 piece set designed by Nana Susan.  (Susan is one of our designers.  She has designed several popular KITS including "Party On", "Natural Beauty", "Once Upon a Time", "Built to Play" and many others.)


She used a large white gift bag from Michael's, and wrapped a strip of pink and white Stampin' Up ribbon around top and bottom of patterned paper strip from Basic Gray's Lemonade line. She then cut 2 blue border strips and used a Martha Stewart punch to get the cute lacey effect on each, before attaching all of these pieces to the bag.


Susan tied a pink and ivory nosegay with ivory net and punched a coordinating tag, then tied both onto the bag's handle. Mini glue dots were used to attach the colored buttons to the bottom of the bag.


The card itself is 10 x 6 1/2, folded into 5 x 6 1/2, the magenta mat is 4 3/4 x 6 1/4, floral patterned mat is 4 3/8 x 4 3/8, and the green lower mat is 4 3/8 x 1 1/2. This green piece is also textured with the Cuttlebug. Stampin' Up yellow and white ribbon is wrapped around the magenta/floral/green mats, and a faux knot is tied in the front.


Sweet Pea is cut from New Arrival at 1" - both in yellow and magenta. The magenta is off-set under the yellow to give a nice shadow effect. The baby in the pea pod is also from New Arrival, and is cut at about 3", inked and attached with pop-dots. Rhinestones were added to each corner of the floral patterned mat, and Diamond Stickles were added in little accent dots to the floral mat.


Thanks for stopping in today to check out our latest creation.  Be sure to leave a comment for a chance at the blog candy.  And swing on by tomorrow for a project by the Bling Queen herself, Wendy Lawrence.  It's a ridiculously cute layout, and you will love it!!
