Something For Baby

Do you find it hard to know what to buy people when they have a baby ? I know I do. What  they use these days is so different from when I had my kids, and my youngest is only 10. Things change and different ideas come into the market. So now I find it easier to just give a gift card and let the proud parents choose something themselves.

Stampin' Up! have made this so much easier to do now with their new B.Y.O.P stamp set. The B.Y.O.P (Buy Your Own Present) set covers every occassion you could think of. It's brilliant. In todays project I have paired it with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits and the Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper.

I decided not to do just a normal card but rather something that was like a little present in itself. Hence the Mini Treat Bag. This die is so versatile. I can see it being used for many occasions. And the Irresistibly Yours Specialty Paper which is a FREE item you can earn during Sale-A-Bration is the perfect paper to use for this. By shading it with a sponge, you can control how dark or light you want to make it. You could just even leave it white. It is truly a beautiful paper.

I have also used a touch of the Silver Foil Sheet which is on the Weekly Deals this week. I love using the foil sheets for just a bit of something special on a project. 

Another great set which you will see me using more of soon, is the Celebrate Today stamp set and matching Balloon Framelits. I used the framelits to cut out the balloon on the bag and the stamp set for the baby banner where the gift card sits. This stamp set and framelits  are in a bundle too, so when you buy the bundle you save 15% off the price of purchasing them seperately. Gotta love the savings that come with bundles.

Here's the cool bit. Because it is Sale-A-Bration, if you purchase the Mini Treats Bag Thinlits Die and the B.Y.O.P stamp set, you qualify to the get the Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper for FREE.  Then all your gift giving for the year is sorted. How cool is that.

If you want to recreate my project, then you will need the following items.
