Cutie Pie Onesie

I've seen lots of onesie, tee shirt and dress cards. I thought the Rubber Romance Cutie Pie line would make great onesie cards. So I gave it a try, it was so quick and easy, I wanted to share the project with you.I know there are many templates out there, but I decided to just wing it. I have plenty of onesies in my house so I took a look at one and free handed a template. I then traced it on my desired cardstock. The fold is at the top and that is where the shoulders go (you don't cut this part) so the card will stay together. Here I've used PTI Spring Rain cardstock.
Next I embossed my card with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.
To add some decorative trim I cut some scalloped circles, then cut out the center with a regular straight edged circle.
I layered the scalloped trim around the leg holes and neck opening. After adhering them, I turned the card over and trimmed off the excess from the back.
Now, for the fun part! I added some eyelet (snaps) along the bottom edge. Then I stamped my Rubber Romance Cutie Pie Owl on white cardstock, colored him with some copics, then added stickles. He is mounted on a scalloped square. Isn't this a fun and easy project? These would make great thank you notes for a new mom, and it wouldn't take too long to make up a set.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you give a onesie card a try.

Tutorial: Decorated Snack Pack

Hello everyone!! It's Wendy here with a tutorial for a decorated snack pack, a great little pick me up for a gym buddy or a crop buddy.

Start with the Yoga Girl image, stamped on Bazzill Simply Smooth paper. To get a perfect "match" with your paper, stamp the pant part of the image on the paper, and then cut it out and paper piece it to your colored image (I am using some Basic Grey scraps). 

Finish coloring image in, using matching colors to your paper scraps.    After you're done coloring, cut her out and set aside.

Measure cardstock base to width of ziploc sandwich size bag
Fill your baggie 1/3 way full with trail mix
push out all the air, "zip" the top up, and fold it down twice and tape in back to secure

Fold your cardstock base in half, adhere a strip of coordinating striped paper to the back, a 1/2 oval cut from the same paper as the pieced pants of the image, then adhere the finished image to the top.  Use letter stickers to spell your message, then staple to the top of your snack bag
