Hello Baby

Weddings is the current challenge at My Grafico Crafts. You still have time to design a paper craft. Check HERE for details. The design team projects are awesome!

Here is the current set of images we used this week:

Aren't these just the cutest images?
There are so many paper craft projects that I could use these with. I am surely saving them for the future.
I decided to share how simple baby invites could be made using two of these images.
Use a paper piecing technique on the stork and bundle. Then a Word Document for the necessary information. The beak was colored with copic markers.
This invite was done the same way with the yellow paper pieced and the baby and pacifier colored with copics. Don't look too hard because my skin toned copic ran out of ink:( 
I will just have to make a trip to Buffalo Stamps to get a refill and of course shop!!

I have several baby gifts and showers in the near future. I am sure this set will be used often. Please take a look at our design team projects they are so unique. I hope that I have inspired you to use your creative energy this week. Remember, you still have time to enter our Wedding challenge at My Grafico Challenges.
