Melissa Frances Sentiment Box

I did this for my SIL's baby shower. I was pressed for time so if I had spent more time it would have been even cuter, but this is what this little box plus 10 minutes will get you!! I just used a small hole punch on the lid and then strung the matching ribbon through to attach it to the box. I also have the baby girl, love and Christmas boxes...these are going in my favorites!

Did this with the Lily Kate kit from BasicGrey. Luke is always scared to try new things. The look on his face sums it up. I embellished with the matching ribbon and the blue Rusty Pickle buttons.

Where's the Baby?

Supplies used: SEI Winnie's Walls Kit (Ribbon, paper, letters, tab and button), Heidi Swapp Flower and journaling spot, Dymo labler, Uniball Signo pen to draw the arrow, and a Color Box ink pad to ink the flower and journaling spot.


Another I used my MME stash on. This one is the "handsome" line. I also used the Rusty Pickle brown buttons. I'm loving that tiny button edge! It says "how could one little boy be oh so handsome".

Coconut Cake

This was done with the 7 gypsies 5th ave paper pack. The papers are only 6x6 but I really wanted to use them for these shots so I cut them into 3" squares and pieced them together. I also used the black Scenic Route Chipboard, white heidi swapp chipboard, and the BasicGrey mini monos(for the 60) which I inked with a white cats eye. I finished it with white and black gelly roll pens.

L is for Love

Did this one with the Cosmo Cricket Dutch Girl Kit. I love the cool colors of it and wanted that for this beach picture. Only other items I used were some Foof-a-la buttons and a touch of Ranger ink.

Yee Haw

This was done with the Wanted Cosmo Cricket kit. The only other embellishments I used were some Ranger ink to edge the papers, some ribbon, 2 photo corners, and a few brads. I'm loving the kits, as they include so much to create entire layouts.

I used some of my MME stash on this one. I also used the new brown Rusty Pickle buttons and kiwi florals from Heidi Swapp.

Sweet Cheeks

This was done with the Crate paper "Carnival" kit. I paper pieced with strips on the top and bottom. For the large flower I cut 8 medium hearts from the front and back of the papers and for the inner small flower I cut 5 small hearts and then pieced them together. KI memories gem in the middle. For the lower word I used a frame which I inked with a white cats eye ink. Then I used the solid side of one of the papers and used a crate rubon for the "adorable". Title is Heidi Swapp chipboard and paper squares that I traced letters on from a childs ruler with a brown gelly roll pen. Inked the edges of those with the Ranger ink.
