Scrapbooking as much as possible, but sometimes getting distracted by birthdays and life!

Yep, it’s time for another Creative Cutting Challenge and this time the topic is Baby!

I have to admit this one had me going in circles. I couldn’t do what I had set out to do, but I figured it out and got all my rubber duckies in a row!

I received the Baby Set from the Creative Pointe. There are six different, fun baby images in this set, I just let the inspiration come.

My idea was to create a tag to indicate the age of the baby. I thought the baby bottle would be a great way to measure the baby’s age, so I put the black Silhouette Sketch Pen in my trusty Cameo and wrote the numbers one through five along the tick marks on the bottles. Then I created layers of milk that would go up to the numbers. I like to leave options open, so the numbers can be for days,weeks or months, etc. Here are some pictures of my son as a baby with the tags:

The one is for one week and the two is for two days!

These are one month and two days old!

1 week

Three, four and five are months. What a cutey, huh?

Three, four and five months. He loves his sister and she was so good with him!

I used an older collection from Fancy Pants called Baby Mine. The stickers, die cuts and chipboard elements make nice additions to the bottles. The “milk” is Stampin’ Ups Glossy White paper.

I sure hope you’ll take up the challenge to use a digital cutting file (other than Cricut) to create a Baby project for The Creative Cutting Challenge!

Thanks so much for visiting today!


P.S. Are you still there?  Good! I have a fair amount of embellishments (some partially used) and a few papers left of this collection and would like to give my “leftovers” as well as my five baby bottle die cuts away to one lucky blog commenter. This will be based on what you say. I’d like to know what you will do with my goodies if I were to send them your way. Please be sure that you leave an e-mail where you could be reached. The giveaway will close on February 24, when I will choose who I think I’d like to give my goodies to and send them that wonderful “you won” e-mail!

So much Baby goodness! It's Mine, but it could be yours!

Some really great Baby goodness! It’s Mine, but it could be yours!

****I love all of your comments! Please don’t worry if you don’t want the giveaway, just say that you don’t want to be entered or just leave regular blog love!
