Easy To Make Baby Bibs

Hello everyone! I’m here today after a bit of a break for some much-needed rest and relaxation, to show you some easy-to-make baby bibs!

Baby’s are so much fun to make things for. They are small in size and need so many different things to keep them clean, safe, and warm. Bibs help with all of that. They keep the spit up and food off of their clothes. That extra layer can keep them warm.

Let’s take a look at some baby bibs:

Sleep Tight by Gabrielle Neil for Riley Blake Designs combines two different colors, mint and coral, with teddy bears, modern painterly textures, and highlights of sparkle. Totally beautiful. It comes with eighteen prints and two fabric panels.

Using that template, cut out 1 front panel from one of the prints from the Sleep Tight Fabric and 1 back panel from the terry cloth.

Wedding Invitations

Hello everyone!!  I’m here to share with you some wedding invitations that I created for my cousins wedding in Jamaica, WI this July!!

I was commissioned to create 105 invitations with little directions.  The colors are blue, coral and white.  That was all I had to go on and i didn’t have a lot time to create them since they needed to go out so that people could make their travel plans.

Take a look at the invites:

Invitation complete

You have the invitation and envelope, reply card and envelope and a ribbon closure.

Check out my journey:

To create the invitation base, I used the envelope punch board to create an envelope but this is no ordinary envelope.

Invitation base

Once these card bases were cut and scored, the actually invite was created digitally and sent to print.

Once they printed, they were cut and adhered inside the blue base with Tombow Stamp Runner Adhesive.

Cut invites

Next up were the envelopes.  105 envelopes were cut using a Stampin’ Trimmer. They were adhered together with Tombow Extreme Adhesive.


Scoring the cardstock is up next.

envelope 2

The reply cards were created digitally as well.  Printed and sized perfectly.  The envelopes were created for those as well.

Once all of the paper was cut and put together.  The invitations were complete.

Invitation sets

I have to admit, I was given a month and a half to complete these and it was hard work.

What’s Your Favorite Watercolor Color?

watercolor for card makers

I must say this Watercolor for Card Makers is an awesome class.  I’m learning so much and sharing it with my daughter has been even better.  Both of us are having a lot of fun learning about colors and how the work with one another.  Once her cards are posted I will link them here in my blog so you can see what her take on the lessons were.

Today’s card is a Stamped Emboss Resist and Watercolor Wash Card.  Kristina Werner taught us how to add ink on top of an embossed image, the ink just happens to be watercolor.  I’ve practice this technique a couple of weeks ago and it took me a while but I got it down pack and my card came out really nice. You can check out my post on April 30.

For my new card, I wanted to create a male card.  I don’t have many of those, I wanted to make sure I tried colors that were suited for men.  I love blues, yellow, and coral.  I also tried something new.  ADDING STITCHING TO MY CARD!!!  I’ve never done that before but I wanted to finally try it.  It was exciting!

Love to call you my friend

I love how the colors blended to make colors that weren’t in my original palette.  When I added the yellow to the tip of the blue it create that pretty green.  The same when I added the coral to the yellow, it created the orange.  It was amazing.

Creating the background was pretty easy.

I used Impression Obsessions Honeycomb Stamp to create my background.  I stamped it with VersaMark and embossed it with Stampin’ Up! clear embossing powder.

I used my Koi Watercolors,  I used number 23, 24 and 8.

My vellum and card stock was attached with my small sewing machine.  I had that sewing machine for two years and never used.  I pulling it out to create this card and I’m so glad I did.

Guess what, I didn’t know how to use the sewing.  I had to ask my daughter to help set up the machine.  I thought that was funny and she loved teaching me.

All and all, my card came out the way I had hoped it would.  I’m very pleased with the look.  I hope you are too!
