Welcome to the Nest

Hey crafty peeps! This week, this sweet little LO is pulling triple duty - for the Your Memories Here DT, Pile It On! DT, & as a gift I as commissioned to do for a friend's newborn nephew...isn't he cutie?!! She's gonna frame this up later today & I can't wait to see how it looks. I know, I promised a fun, colorful Prima-filled LO today, but this creation was a little unexpected & took up a little more of my time. So, next Sunday I promise to have that super cool Prima LO to're gonna love it! And speaking of love, I loved doing this LO! It was so much fun, especially since I rarely get to do those sweet little baby LO's. It was a blast mixing & matching so many neat products...most of which you can find HERE at the YMH Store. 

Patterned Paper - Pebbles, Inc., Prima packaging, GCD Studios, Jillibean Soup, Pink Paislee
Cardstock - Tattered Angels (black - from Spooky Findings kit), Close to My Heart (white)
Cardstock Sticker Border/Tiny Type - Cosmo Cricket
Lace/Rhinestones - Prima
Punch - Martha Stewart, Stampin' Up
Ink - Tim Holtz Distress Ink (walnut stain)
Diecuts - Cricut Jasmine Cartridge (title), Cricut Hoot 'n' Holler Cartridge (branch & leaves)
Chipboard - Top Line Creations

This week the challenge over at PIO is Fancy Folds; you can either make a tri-fold card or, if making another project, any style of fancy folding. For my fancy folds, I created the photo corners by using a border punch & then folding them to create the fancy corner. I love how they turned out & that they make the cutie baby photos stand out a little more. I do hope you'll join us this week at PIO, but don't forget to visit YMH either! The YMH DT Blog is full of fab inspiration & the YMH Store is filled to the brim with amazing goodies at awesome prices! Make sure to check back later this week for my next crafty post...until then, Happy Craftin'!
