Pink Cat Sneak Peak Day 1 - Dress up Baby Sweet Pea

Yay, It's Pink Cat Studio Sneak Peak Day 1! I can finally show you what I have been working on over the last few weeks. This adorable little guy and sweet accessories are part of the new Dress up baby stamp set which you can order on Thursday! I had the idea to make a little washing line for baby's clothes using some Lolly sticks and string. The little pegs and peg flowers I picked up in Hobbycraft. I added the button centres to the flowers for a little more interest. The cute little bee's buzzing around in the garden are also from this great new set. The papers used for this card are from Imaginisce Baby Powder collection. The grass is from Doodlebug paper frills.

Here are a few close-ups:




For my second project I wanted to make a Scrapbook page for both my girls. I also thought it would be great to add their little hospital bands. This picture was the first taken of my now 3 year old daughter Danni taken in the delivery room. I paper pieced my sweet baby image to match the rest of my layout. Also gave her some cute furry bear ears and a rattle. The papers are from DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby girl stack. I picked up the 6" x 6" box frame in The Range for £3.99 and painted with medium oak wood stain. I removed the glass from my frame to get a good photo. Danni's name was cut on my Cricut using the Mickey font cartridge. I'll be showing you my Zoe frame very soon.

Close-up of this little cutie pie:

I'm so excited to see what my other talented team members have created for the sneaks. Here are the links so you can check them out too :-) Also we have a wonderful and very talented Guest joining us this month - Sparkle Smith! See you tomorrow for some other adorable sneaks.
