Boys Rule...Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day Two!

It's Day Two of this week's Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks! I have two more cute baby projects for you today (another starring my little rugrat, this time with his happy Daddy.)

to view an image up-close, please click on a photo
First up is a fun frame that I created with the newest addition to the Cuppie line of TE stamps, Baby Cakes. I've been waiting for a baby set starring my favorite sweet treat and when I saw this image of Cuppie reading to a baby cuppie, I immediately thought of my two guys and how much they love reading together. I paper pieced the armchair and book and used die-cuts and patterned paper from the upcoming Alphabet Soup Project Pantry-Boy kit. I love the colors because my hubby will be displaying this in his office!

My second project is a simple little interactive card featuring the new set, Bringing Home Baby. I love this set of images filled with baby room decor items, including sweet accessories, a beautiful crib, a dresser, and this darling window and shelf. After stamping and coloring with Copics, I used a hobby knife to cut around the bottom half of the window, which created a flap to lift -- the perfect size for a BIG announcement!
