FM99 Bright Colors for Baby

Time for another Friday Mashup!  Today we are playing with bright colors for baby.

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:
  1. Make a project for a "Baby Shower or a Baby".
  2. Or Make a project using the Colors "Pool Party, Real Red, So Saffron & a Neutral".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project for a "Baby/Shower using the Colors listed above".

I didn't manage to mash it up.  I am soooo not in baby mode.  I wish I was, but we are all pink and purple glitter around here.


As soon as I saw the Million-Dollar Moments hostess set in the Spring catalog, I thought, "AFLAC".  You know, the insurance commercials?  I couldn't resist!

Ok, confession time - I finally broke down and bought an e-cutter.  Stampin' Up is coming out with such cute digital downloads in .svg format, and I just want to cut them!  Little Missy and I have been making some Project Life/Creative Journal pages together, and some downloads are just perfect!  I can't wait to delve in.  So this card was a bit of a learning curve.  The polaroid cut-out was easy; it is just drawn in the e-cutter software.  But I wanted to figure out how to print and cut the speech bubble. Four tries later, I had it.  Hubby was so kind to point out everything I did wrong, after it didn't work.  :/

This week I'm also playing along with Retro Sketches #52, which is a "pick your favorite past sketch" challenge, i.e., Retro Sketches #41.

Stamps: Million-Dollar Moments; Paper: So Saffron, Pool Party, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP; Ink: Pool Party, So Saffron marker, Pumpkin Pie marker, Real Red marker, Basic Black marker; Accessories: Spring Fever MDS download (speech bubble), Cloudy Day EF, Big Shot, Printer, e-cutter, Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!

I love this card! And you could totally use it as a funny baby card...Having a baby? You'll need Aflac! At least that's how I feel in a house full of 3 boys who have no fear :D

Love your card! Congrats on the Silhouette Cameo. I've had mine for a year and I love it. Especially the print and cut feature. :) So glad to hear that SU is offering svg files.
