We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring projects that are based on “B“ themes such as Birthday, Bride or Baby. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

The letter B stands for:

Babies

Letter B for Baby card

Indeed it does. And babies are on my mind these days, because there is a new one in our family. And I just love the onesie in this stamp set, Made with Love (click here),  so I had to use it in both its striped and plain versions. And that brings me to my next B:

The letter B stands for:

Borrowed

I really can’t take credit for this design, however, because I borrowed it from the 2016-17 Annual Catalog on page 59. I chose different colors for my design, though. And I didn’t emboss anything (the letter L stands for lazy, in this case). I really like the combination of So Saffron and Pool Party inks. Up next:

The letter B stands for:

Birthday

Before I know it my little grandson will be a year old, so I decided to use the same color palette as the previous card to make him a birthday card. Months in advance. Better to be prepared, I say. I found a very cute card on Pinterest (credit to Renee Lynch) and just fell in love with it, so here is my take on her original design:

And that will take us to our final letter B:

The letter B stands for:

Background

My only problem with CASE-ing the design was that I don’t have any of the new Designer Series Paper yet. So I made my own background simply by stamping a piece of plain cardstock and using it in place of the DSP (Designer Series Paper). I used the branch stamp from the Number of Years set (click here) for a soft look behind the number 1 – Number of Years is also one of my favorite stamps. Yes, they are like my children. I confess. They are all my favorite. And now I’m going to sneak in one extra letter B:

BYE!
