The challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is called Baby Face. We want you to make vintage or shabby chic baby cards or other paper-crafted projects.
Starr Timmons is joining our wonderful Design Team this week as a Guest Designer. Please check out her blog and her creations.
I started by finding this fabulous image online at By Vintage Design and gave it a little distressing. The paper is from my scrap box and it has been there for so long that I don't remember where it came from. Since it was old, I decided to make it look older and added some Frayed Burlap Distress Ink (Ranger) to it and to the other elements.
The heart doily was a gift from my friend Shirley. The seam binding, button and eyelet trim were all from my stash. The corner is a Nellie Snellen die and I have added a few little Dollarama pearls to it.
The alphabet blocks were created with my Cameo. I started with a font and then broke it up so I could cut the frame and letters separately from the background in order to give them some dimension and make them look a bit more like real baby blocks.
