Happy Monday! This week at BBTB2, our wonderfully talented Suzanne has chosen the theme with her soon to be born, first grandson in mind. After 2 wonderful daughters and 3 lovely granddaughters, she is excited to start scrapping in blue so our theme this week is "Little Boy Blue". Although the projects do not need to be for a baby, they are to be for a boy using the color blue. I opted for a baby theme anyway because there was another cut on my fabulous CTMH Artiste cartridge I was dying to try. My little favor is actually the diaper envelope (shift on the card feature) on page 64 of the cart. For some reason, I thought is was 3D but actually, with a teeny bit of modification it easily adapted to what I had in mind.
I stretched the length of the envelope slightly in Design Studio and instead of scoring at the score lines, I scored 1/4" out from of it and after the first scallop at the back leg opening. This made a little flat base on which to stand. At the sides I didn't score at all, just tucked the flaps throught the slits and secured with glue dots inside. To gain stability, I cut the scalloped card portion of this cut (twice) large enough to make a base and taped the diaper to it.
The little diaper pin AND "It's a Boy" are also all on page 64 of the Artiste booklet. The diaper pin and pin head are separate cuts, but I cut the sentiment twice and trimmed for the two layers there. Don'tcha just love it when you can do a project with only one cartridge? I ran out of time, but thought that matching invitations using the card and envie as intended would sure be the beginnings of great shower decor. If you haven't purchased CTMH Artiste yet, I strongly urge you to visit my dear friend and DT sister Susan's site and check out the fabulous deal.
Now please take a look at the fabulous projects from the rest of the BBTB2 team and we invite you to play along. Just make sure you follow the rules posted at the top of the blog and have fun!
I'm also entering this in the Come and Get It Anything Other Than a Card Challenge, the Squirrel and the Fox Celebrate the Occasion (new baby) Challenge, and the Cute And Girly September Boys/Men challenge (can't help it, this makes me giggle).
