SOUS: Stroller

SOUS: Die cut challenge - stroller

Welcome die cut fans!!! This Friday at SOUS the challenge is to use a die cut stroller.  For this project, I knew I wanted to do something different. So I went hunting and came up with these CUTE 3-D baby buggies from svgcuts. They were really quite easy to make. The hardest part was coming up with baby paper, which I had to go shopping for them. Oh darn!

I made three versions in different colors. They would make such cute baby shower gifts, don't ya' think?

Thanks for stopping by! Head on over to the SOUS website to see what the rest of our die cut team has come up with for this challenge!!

Treasure Box Designs
Featuring Treasure Tot Nick

Treasure Box Designs has been posting a lot of smaller files featuring children playing. This one, of course, is a little boy on a scooter. Naturally, I have lots of pictures of my son playing on his scooter and couldn't wait to put this all together.

This particular picture means a lot to me, and will someday, mean a lot to my son.  The journaling reads: In February and March 2012, we briefly lived in a trailer park while waiting to move into our new home. Joscelin made friends with the neighbor's kids, age 7 and 8. During that time, these children taught Joscelin how to ride a scooter. Lots of scraps and bruises later, he became an expert by the time we left.

Joscelin was 5 years old during this time.

I followed a sketch on Pinterest for this LO.

Hello there SOUS fans!! Welcome to my blog. Today we are featuring the shamrock!! Since my husband's birthday is in just a couple weeks, I decided to make him a card with this cute bear from Treasure Box Designs.  I went to's "color wheel" to come up with what would go with green.  I didn't want to make a monochromatic card. 

NOW, go see what our lovely DT members have come up with for their projects for more inspiration. Thanks for stopping by!!

I used TBD's face stamps for this bear's face. The sentiment is a Verve stamp.

Here is my interpretation of Sandi's sketch!! I used a pre-school picture of my son for this layout. I also used Treasure Box Designs die cut files as well.

The pencil is from TBD's "Back to the Books" file. The ruler and journaling are rub-ons.

Some flags I made from a punch. I added machine stitching and buttons for extra effect.
