Doodlebug Designs: Baby Shower Gift

Hi Everyone, I wanted to share a cute baby gift I made recently for my cousin who is having a little boy in October! 

I started with a cut file by Echo Park that I found in the Silhouette Store (here).  Next, I chose some papers from my Doodlebug stash to coordinate with their nursery colors (mostly grays).  The grid background is from the Kraft in Color collection, and the Gray Dot paper is from the Patriotic Parade collection.  All other papers are from Doodlebug's Snips & Snails collection. 

I first cut the file from the background paper.  Using strips of the different papers, I backed the cut-out letters.  To give it a bit more dimension, I then cut some of the words out again from the colored papers and popped the letters up over the background.

To complete the frame, I added some ribbon from my stash, and a Doodlebug Button tied with some twine.  I was so happy with how it all came out, and I can't wait to meet Baby G!!!!  That's it for me today...I'm off to visit the fun folks at Doodlebug Designs this weekend in Salt Lake City!!!  I CAN NOT WAIT!!!  I'll be sure to take lots of pictures!  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. That's really wonderful! I'm pretty much sure that your cousin love this gift of yours so much. Handmade gifts are truly precious and mom-to-be will appreciate it more than what we ever thought. Every time I am invited at baby showers, I really don't forget to create my own gifts. Besides of those baby items that I purchase for the expecting parents, I want to make something that my friend or loved ones can keep and reminds her the baby shower that she have.


Thanks so much for your comments, they are much appreciated!
