Kaisercraft frame - New Baby

Good morning all,

I hope this post finds you well. Today i have popped in to share with you something a little different.  Recently, my neighbour had a new baby and she has always been supportive of my crafty projects so i decided to make them a little gift.  Forgive me for the photo heavy post and for the poor quality and squint pics ( I took them in a hurry... argh!)
I started off with a large Kaisercraft frame (below) and have used My Mind's Eye 'The Sweetest Thing' collection throughout.  I love this collection and thought it would be just as nice as 'baby' papers. 

This is what i made...............
I have left the top left space free for a photo to be inserted under the corner die cuts and two smaller photos can be added further down. I've also added a little journal tag which was a pre made journal tag from this collection that i cut down and altered to fit.
This is a Cheery Lynn doily which is part coloured using Martha Stewart acrylic paint (surf) and a ready made sentiment from MME The Sweetest Thing collection.

This is a 3D sticker from the same collection.  I added the button and hemp.
This was a wooden teddy i had in my stash for ages that i painted then added the bow.
Finally, the flowers are from Hobbycraft and were white so i painted the with the same Martha Stewart acrylic paints, added some Tim Holtz die cut flourishes and voila!  The name and date are American Crafts thickers.
My Mind's Eye 'The Sweetest Thing' collection - Designer paper, journal tag (altered and cut down) & 'playful' sign, tiny word stickers and layered stickers.
Dusty Attic layered flowers and words (adore & cherish)
Martha Stewart acrylic paint - surf, jonquil and couscous
Tim Holtz distress ink - walnut stain
Flowers from Hobbycraft
Die cuts by Tim Holtz (flourishes) and Cheery Lynn (corners)
Thickers by american Crafts
Challenges i would like to enter:
Thank you for visiting me today.  I hope you are all having a good day. As always, you comments are very much appreciated.  I hope to catch up with you all later on today.
For now, take care.
Hugs, Jill x

  3. Hi Jill, how lovely is this, what a wonderful keepsake. I think you may have to translate "squint" in your description of the photographs for the non Fifers or Scottish followers LOL. Am now ready to see the remaining posts as this first one stopped me in my tracks as it is so beautiful and I just had to comment.

    Take care.
