Welcome, Baby!

One of my fellow Prettie Girls - Charmaine - gave birth to a beautiful baby boy recently! We all decided we would like to welcome him with some fun little baby items -- using Crate Paper's Baby Bee Collection from Paper Pretties.

This is a simple frame that I altered and added a chipboard letter to it. (The colors are a little softer irl.)
And these are some blocks that I altered and added rub-on letters to spell out Isaac's name.
Emily Giovanni showed everyone how to make these fun little blocks on her blog. The blocks can be found at Hobby Lobby (1-1/2 inch size) -- found in the unfinished wood section in bags of 6 (I think) for around $3. I just used Modge-Podge to adhere the patterned paper, sanded the edges, and applied ink to the edges. Then, I just added the rub-on letters (American Crafts) and used another coat of Modge-Podge to seal everything. What an easy and fun way to make a personalised gift!

I also send Charmaine a set of baby stamps from Rubber Soul. (If you would like to see what the rest of the Prettie Girls sent baby Isaac, click on THIS link.)

  2. These gifts are ADORABLE! I love them Julie.
