Baby Ensemble

Good Morning Papercrafters.  It's going to be an exciting day today.  We do the walk through for the house and then close next friday!  And then life will REALLY get busy, getting ready to move.  But it will be a fun busy.  I hope you are all staying warm.  It's been cold here, but the good news is, we will be back up into 70's next week.  Hey ... don't be a hater!  teehee.   

This is a set that I have submitted FOUR times.  I give up, teehee.  And now I can share it on my blog.
The Popcorn box, Scalloped card and baby shoes are all Creative Cuts and More, pre-cut, pre-scored dies.  You fold and adhere.  I have posted a tutorial in the past on how I make the shoes, and you can check it out HERE.  The shoes are a little challenging the first time since I am a perfectionist.  But I got better at it, the more I made.  Be prepared to use some trim along the bottom to cover up any area's that don't go together perfectly.  But they are worth figuring out, because they are so stinkin' cute!!  And what a hit they would be at a baby shower.

Thanks for stopping by!
