A friend needed a baby card so I made up a quick one…no one knows if it is a boy or girl so yellow was a good choice! I was not sure if the scallops were too girly so I gave her a choice of plain arm and leg openings:) I think the Expressions Natural Elements (Congrats) were a great embellishment in this year’s annual catalog. Don’t forget to pick some up if you missed them as they are retiring!
I used some paper from the Cherry of Top DSP Pack- doesn’t it look like water?
This fun onesie was so easy to make!
You just fold a 4 1/4″ x 11″ portrait card in half and punch half of a 1 3/8″ circle on the fold to create a head opening. Here is a sample, however the photo is out of order!
You do the same for the leg holes but place the punch at each bottom corner like this:
To make the body, place a ruler horizontally across the card 1 1/4″ from the top fold (below the head hole) and draw a line lightly with a pencil in 1″ on both sides. From the middle points of each line, draw a line down to the top of each leg hole. Cut along the lines to make it the shape of a onesie.
To make the trim on the collar and leg holes, punch out a 1 3/8″ circle then punch around the hole you created in the paper with a 1 3/4″ scallop or circle punch.
Place the trim around the head and leg openings and trim off the excess.
*Thanks to Becky Jensen for her tutorial.

Yapha Mason has another fun April submission
for Craft Project Central.
This star-shaped scrapbook is as much fun to use as it is to create! It is lovely to display when it is open and easy and easy to store when closed. This version, created with the Sweet Li’l Thing Designer Series Paper makes a wonderful baby scrapbook. If you change the paper it can also be a great scrapbook for Mother’s Day, birthdays, weddings, and many other special occasions. It is perfect for a class or a club project, or just a fun afternoon scrapping with friends. This project includes instructions for a coordinating card,too.
