Baby Baby!

I just love these clear Stampendous Pails - I'm forever reordering them from Eclectic Paperie. I like to keep a healthy stash of them available for any client orders that might pop up, or for any gifts I have to give.

My husband's cousin recently had a baby girl, and as the mother of two boys, I love when I get to by baby girl gifts! I selected a gift with a pail in mind for the packaging. Then the gift helped to select what paper I'd be working with.

To match the pink and brown in the outfit I'd selected for the baby I picked Basic Grey Two Scoops for the designer paper and Close to Cocoa from Stampin Up as my cardstock accent. Since Close to Cocoa doesn't come in the wide width grosgrain ribbon, I took a piece of cardstock and zipped it through my Janome sew mini with the zig zag stitch to create my own. I just loved how it came out.

I also had a client request for a baby boy pail, and a gender neutral pail so I reached for my favorite baby paper - Crate Paper Baby Bee.

This is another item that I like to keep in stock because I think it is just so sweet for baby items. I'm always grabbing a few extra pieces of that on my trip to my local scrapbooking store.

Oh man did my little guy have a total flip out moment when I was there last week. Usually he's good as gold so I don't mind bringing him, but ugh, hopefully they'll let me come back after the monster tantrum thrown there last week....

The pails use the "Sweet Heart" from the Stampin Up set titled Bundle of Joy and the cards use the So Many Scallops set also from Stampin Up.

I have a few more pails awaiting altering downstairs... they're going to be Easter buckets for my little guys. I can't wait to get started on that project! I'll have them hopefully for you next week. I obviously have to work on them in secret around here!!
