Quick update: I have opened up a second evening for the Merry & Bright Preorder stamp class. If you are interested I have about 5 spaces on the Monday night, September 24th, and a couple for Tuesday, September 25th. Thanks so much for your interest in this class! It's a pretty cute set!!!
Also, thanks to all that have posted so far for my blog candy and for sharing your Christmas traditions and favourites! I'm actually going to do some baking this weekend with some of the recipes shared! Thanks!
Here is one of the projects I was working on at the cottage. I saw this paper at the Scrapbook Studio and instantly fell in love. I thought it was SO cute and would make a perfect baby tin. I made one of these for myself when I was pregnant with Nathan and I have to say it worked out great! Inside the tin are 14 dividers, one for pregnancy, one for the big day and then the rest are for each month for the first year. The point is it's a quick place to keep important pieces of information, marking down the "big first days" and also somewhere I can throw photos people give me or little tags or messages. Anyhow, it has definately helped keep Nathan's stuff organized so I thought I'd make another one. This is one thing that I'll have for sale at my fundraiser of course with all proceeds going to Cancer Research.
I used the True Thyme and Elegant Eggplant colour combination with the scrapbook paper. I have lots of the True Thyme ribbon left and thought this corresponded well. I wrapped the paper around the trim around the lid as well as all over the top of the tin. The flowers on the front are from Memory Makers and there is a big antique brad in the centre of them. I LOVE these flowers and they aren't too expensive either!
I cut the tag out using my Sizzix (which by the way is still for sale if interested!). I LOVE this die cut. The tag has some antique brads on it and I simply printed the words off on the computer on White Confetti paper. The faux stitching is just done with a gel pen.
This is the inside of the tin. I lined the lid with the super cute giraffe paper. Inside are 6 thank you cards that correspond with the paper. There are also the 14 dividers in the Elegant Eggplant and True Thyme colour combination. If the person who purchases this tin wants, I would write Pregnancy, The Big Day, 1 Month, 2 Months etc. on all the tabs in white gel pen.
Let me know what you think! I'm trying to make up a bunch of stuff to sell and would love any input you have! Thanks so much!
