The My Mind’s Eye The Sweetest Thing Bluebell Collection is such a versatile collection, it can be used for girls or boys, big or small. There is a mixture of chevron, striped and spotted patterns, along with a variety of floral designs, in such a gorgeous blues, yellows and grays, the theme is up to you. I decided to scrap my baby boy this week, along with making a baby shower card – which means this week’s Monday Craft Madness theme is:
You could make layouts, cards or altered projects baby related or even just use the color blue. The choice is yours!
I loved the color combination in this collection and thought it worked perfectly for a layout of my baby boy.
I used a sketch from our very talented Design Team Member Bev Code.
The embellishments that came with this collection were just adorable, and I tried to find a way to use as many as I possible could! I clustered some of the embellishments at the bottom corner of my photo. The notebook paper and flower are both stickers, which I then layered with a wooden button and brad. The other two embellishments came ‘ready done.’ I love this about MME – they do all the hard work for you!
As I have said previously, the new enamel dots from MME are one of my greatest finds! I knew I wanted to do a small banner underneath the photo but I didn’t want the twine that I normally use with them. Instead I used the enamel dots to finish off’ the chipboard banner. I love that they come in different sizes in coordinating colors!
Next, I decided to make a baby card. The colors and patterns are perfect for this, and it kept within my theme.
I fussy cut two of the borders from the border sheet, and added one of the tiny word stickers as a final touch.
I used my Cricut to cut out the stroller and used pop dots to give it a little dimension. Some stitching for texture, buttons for wheels, pop it all up on a scalloped circle and done! A cute baby card.
I hope I have inspired you to start work on your ‘Baby Blues’ projects this week. Just remember to have fun!
