Oh Baby!

I have so many friends who are expecting babies. And, in case you didn't know already, I am expecting as well (it's suppose to be a girl and she's due March 11th)!

So, one of the first sets that I saw in the newest TAC Catalogue that I knew I must have is called "Our Baby". It is a set of 15 which includes the numbers from 0 - 9. It is PERFECT for baby books or scrapbook pages, for birth announcements and for charting what and when your baby is doing certain things.


It makes journaling so easy!!

These pictures show a sample of how you could incorporate this stamp set into a birth announcement. The picture at the top of this post is the front of the card. It is actually a matchbook style card! The stamp set that is in the center is from the "Sentimental Boxes" stamp set and the flourishes in the background were stamped with VersaMark and are from the Level A Hostess Set called "Swoops & Swirls".

The picture below shows how I used the "Baby's Birth" stamp from this set. You can't really see in the photo, but I used my hot pink stardust pen on the swirls on the right side of the white piece to add a little bling (glitter) to the card.


The photo on the inside of the card below is one of my son who is 5 now (and when he gets older he probably won't like that I used his picture on a sample of a girl baby announcement but it's all I had at the time)! This shows what the announcement looks like when it is completely open.


This is a fun way to make a baby announcement and could be done in any color scheme. It could also be made into a graduation announcement, wedding invitation, birthday party invitation, etc...The possibilities are limitless!

By the way, Nikki from Virginia came up with the template for this matchbook. I want to thank her for sharing her creativity!!
