Home Decor for Baby Amélie ♥

Good morning Ladies and gentle-peeps!

Cuteness Alert!! …. You’ve been warned…

Today I want to share a baby project. My friend from Uni Vanessa had baby Amélie at the start of the month, and unfortunately they are over in Northern Ireland so I haven’t got to see both the girls yet. Through Uni Vanessa was one of those friends that would be there when you needed her, would look after everyone, would make sure that we all cleaned up after ourselves, and kept us all in line: so I have absolutely no doubt that she will be the best mom ever!! Amélie is lucky to have V as a mummy, and I hope she grows up to be as generous, kind and as beautiful as her mummy…but then again, how could she not! ♥

And so of course, I’ve been crafting a little something for the little lady…

First can I say that this was not my original design idea, but was inspired by someone else’s project, but frustratingly, i cant for the life of me figure out where or when I seen it. It was likely on 2peas or scrapbook.com, but despite several attempts to find it, alas, I cannot. If you have seen it, please let me know as I would like to credit the original designer of course.

The frame itself is from Tesco, and cost about £6.99, so it really is not expensive, especially as it is perfect for this kind of project because there is a space of about 10mm between the mount and the glass, which means that I had the creative freedom to use 3d embellishments.

The six squares may look like punches, but i actually just used my ruler width as a guide to cut squares from my scraps {Note to self – really must buy a square punch!}. Top left is plain cardstock, then DCWV adhesive stack, then DCWV text stack. This paper actually had the word mother written all over it, and you can see i’ve cut off a piece that has the start of the word ‘mère’. The bottom row includes paper form DCWV glitter stack, pink cardstock ran embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, and a random piece of pattern paper for the last square.

Background is Swiss Dots Bazzill cardstock. Chipboard star is Heidi Swapp, Charm and silver cord is from MeiFlower. Chipboard A is form Basic Grey stamped with a Hero Arts wood grain rubber stamp. Metal clip is from Making Memories, and mushroom and birdie stickers are from Paperchase. Epoxy bubble is from EK Success, label is stamp from Tampo{maniak}, flowers from Prima and lace from Hobbycrafts. Chipboard tag at the top is Making Memories, with a brown card candy embellishment on top, from craftwork cards. The footprint ribbon is from Anita’s (Do crafts) and the circle underneath is a stamp from the Unity April 2010 KOTM, stamped using ‘Orchid pastel’ chalk ink and cut using a circle punch. Ghost acrylic heart is from Heidi Swapp and the butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch. Buttons, gems and pearls are from my stash, some of the gems I coloured green using my sharpie markers. The name Amélie I wrote by hand. ♥

I also got the little bundle of joy a cute little outfit with the teeniest little booties you have ever seen!

♥ Amélie, I can’t wait to meet you in person. Welcome to this world, little one. Look after your mummy, and know that you will always be loved, even by those you don’t see every day. ♥ Love, Auntie Lesley. xoxo
