Birthday Gift - Notebooks


I have a family birthday party to go to this month for 1yr old & 3yr old boys. The parents have asked for money to get a playground but I still wanted to give something for the boys to open. So I made these notebooks. They can be used for many different things. Some options are: A journal the mom can write in, a notebook the boys can draw or work on ABC's in, it could even be used as a scrapbook for pictures and memorabilia. The ideas are endless.


4"x6" index cards (lined on one side if they want to write on them)
1" metal book rings

Baby Announcement

Baby Announcement Tag

No I am not pregnant.
I have a friend who is pregnant and having a photo shoot. So she asked me to make this tag. She will tie it around her tummy with a black ribbon. She doesn't know what she will be having so she wanted to keep it black and white.

Supplies and Instructions

Cricut Cartridges Used:
Cricut Craft Room Basics
Tag - Button #40 - cut 3 times
White(back) - w-4.21 x h-6.76
Black(center) - w-4.21 x h-6.76
White(front with letters cut out) - w-3.66 x h-6
Since there were alot of letters, I created this on my gypsy and used the background. Instead of glueing each letter, I just glued the centers of the letters. I also hid the circle in each tag, then punched one at the end.
Close to my Heart - Art Philosophy
DONT OPEN - cut .69"
until - cut .84"
Oct 2012 - cut .96"

I glued all the layers together then finished it off with a brad.

Nautical Boy - Baby Shower Invitation

Baby Shower Invitation

Nautical Boy Theme

I had a customer request Baby Shower Invitation Samples. They don't know what they will be having yet but the Boy Invitaion was suppose to have a Nautical Boy Theme. So this is what I came up with. The center of the card is velum that I will print the Shower invitation on. It is 1/4" of and 8 1/2" x 11" size, so that it will be easy to print and cut.
