Baby's 1st Birthday!

Hi all,

Hope your day's been okay and you're looking forward to the weekend now :) I can't believe it's come around so quickly already!

Found a spare moment and thought I'd start to upload a few baby cards that I've been commissioned for recently using Stampin' Up! stamp sets, buttons and various Designer Series Paper. Check out Stampin' Up! May Offer as you still have until 31 May to buy three packs of Designer Series Paper and choose a fourth pack for free! There's no limit to what you can do with the DSP - I have used these patterned papers for my cardmaking, but you can use it for any scrapbooking layouts, mini albums, 3D projects - whatever takes your fancy :)

Hope you like the below baby cards, enjoy!

Baby Girl's 1st Birthday

This card is a favourite of mine and was featured last month when this card was one of three cards made in my workshop. I have recreated this card using "Wild About You" stamp set and "Schoolbook Serif Alphabet" for the title.

Boy's 1st Birthday Cards

Here's a few boy cards below, making each one slightly different using the giraffe stamp from "Wild About You" stamp set:

Another Boy Birthday Card:

Hope you've liked these cards, some have been inspired from the gallery over at SCS.
