SIZZIX TRIPLE PLAY BLOG HOP WEEK 2: BABY BLOCK BIRTH ANNOUNCEMENT

Week two of the Sizzix Triple PLay Blog Hop is here and I am so excited to share this project. Karen Burniston is a genius when is comes to 3D and pop-up elements - I am in awe of how her mind works and translates into paper crafting!

Now on to my project...



I had alot of ideas floating around in my head in reference to this cube and its applications, but when I thought of a baby block I knew I had to turn it into a birth announcement!



This Baby Block Birth Announcement is in honor of my Niece, Marlena Anne Wilson, born October 24th. We have already decided that she is going to be a girly girl so I used the Cabbage Rose and Vintage Patchwork papers from the Paper Girl line by The Girl's Paperie



I assembled the cube die and adhered the decorative papers with Continuous Glue Lines by Glue Dots - love this product for a nice, flat look with no peeling edges. I embellished with some silk seam binding that I dyed pink along with assorted ribbons, flowers and bling - all attached using Craft Glue Dots on a Roll. The glitter letters and Crystal Charm are Melissa Frances and I distressed all the papers with Clearsnap Color Box Fluid Chalk Ink in Chestnut Roan.

Hello,
When I design custom invitations, I offer to design custom postage for my clients to complete the look of their invitation package. The party starts when the guests open their invitations, so setting the tone of the party with the invitation is important. But even before the envelope is opened, the first impression the guest has of the invitation is what’s on the outside.
