About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

Diaper Card

This card has several pictures as there are several different things going on. It will be entered into the PKS anything goes challenge. It is a little rough around the edges and needs to be cleaned up a little, but considering I don't really like baby cards, I think it is adorable.
 This is the outside of the card. The base is just plain white card stock. The designer papers are from DCWV. The baby blocks came with the stack of paper. The diaper pins are just large safety pins with flat back resin flowers hot glued on. I don't have a cricut cartridge with a pacifier, so, I pieced one together with a hollow circle, and oval, and a light bulb.
A view of the entire inside.
This is the upper portion of the inside. The yellow paper is plain yellow cardstock that has been run through the embosser with the Swiss dots embossing folder. The safety pin with baby in a sling was a free image I downloaded, but I don't remember from where. Here is the original image:
I cute the diaper pin from silver metallic paper. The sling was scrap paper. The skin colored paper is from DCWV. I slightly enlarged the leg of the baby, because I knew I was going to use a head from the Cricut Cartridge Paper dolls for everyday and stamp it with a cute face from the PKS Wide Eyed Kids collection.

This is the part that needs some polishing.  The sentiment was printed off the computer. The papers were scrap. The word "JOY" was a free fond I f0und by googling free baby fonts.

Hope you like it.
