Bundle of Joy Baby Pocket Card


Going through my stash this week, I came across an Archivers' bag. (Wow... memories of my favorite scrapbooking store came to mind, and how I miss that place!) Inside that lovely frosted plastic bag with the all too familiar green, yellow and blue logo, I found three 12x12 sheets, a 6x6 pad, a unopened package of 3-D chipboard stickers and a small packet of scraps. I remembered buying this Echo Park Bundle of Joy collection to make a layout for our, then new grandbaby, Adelaide. But why on earth did I buy so much? I guess so that I could make some cards with the remainder almost two years later... because that's what I'm doing with it.


Good timing in that I had just received a shipment of soft pink assorted flowers from I Am Roses. Perfect when added to a white rose and two skeleton leaves.


I pulled out three different dies for these three layers: Alterations Distress Doily, Sizzix Vintage Doily and Spellbinders Labels Seventeen.


S-10's in soft pink from I Am Roses...


and a banner and a tiny double heart from that package of Bundle of Joy layered chipboard.


 I added a wide eyelet and a scrap of dyed seam binding to my tag. I trimmed it up with some white felt ric rac... very babyish, I think, with a kind of plush blanket effect.

I'm entering my Bundle of Joy pocket card in the Word Art Wednesday challenge.
I hope my little Sweetheart banner qualifies as a sentiment!

Linda this is gorgeous. I love the layering and the color palette. Fab design. I laughed when you wrote "why did I buy so much? " I think that papercrafters are also excellent hoarders :)
Have a great weekend; hope all is well. X
