First off I want to let you know my Grandson was born on Monday at 5:02 p.m. weighing in at a healthy 7 lbs 7 oz.
As you can see I have been busy ... I actually had this already done but I couldn't get the pictures to upload to the computer from the camera. The disk seems to get stubborn every once in a while and yes it decided to have a moment at the most inopportune time.
I started with a 8 x 8 glass block from Hobby Lobby. Inside I've inserted a set of lights so it can work as a night light. I also now know how to install a cord switch if the set of lights doesn't have this option. Very easy to do.
This side of the block I used Word Collage Cricut cartridge and blue vinyl from Joann's. Before I added the vinyl I also sprayed the outside of the block so it have a frosted look to it and it also makes the lightening softer.
On the reverse side of the block I used Nursery Tails and printed the image with my Imagine on printable vinyl.
The image on the card was also take from the Nursery Tail cartridge.
I thought the little carriage was really cute and I might put some treats in there for Xavier.
The design for this came from Scor-pal. The directions are here. In the directions they don't list a size for the wheels...I started with the Stampin' Up scallop punch and sized down from there using my nestabilities. I like my added touch of spokes. Again it was a Stampin' Up punch and I just cut two, one in each color. A sparkly blue brad to finish.
Can't stay on the computer long this morning....I have lots of things to get done before we leave for Canada tomorrow. I know Poppy & Nana have to stay away from the stores today. We keep stopping in and checking out the cute kids clothes department and apparently we lack self-control.
I really am going to try and post while I'm gone....I have the pictures loaded to my blog already.
Thanks for stopping by!
