Monthly Inspiration - Something for Baby

This month’s inspiration theme is babies!  Babies are such a joy are a wonderful reminder of the simplicity of life.  I decided to use the Something for Baby stamp set for this month’s theme.  It’s a perfect set, and has so many great ways in which to use it.   Be sure to click on the downloadable instruction sheet at the end of the post for instructions on how to make these projects.

1 –Baby Dresser:

This card would be perfect to accompany a gift of adorable little onesies for the new arrival.  I chose to make it for a boy, but it could easily be changed to showcase pink clothing for a little girl.  I used the coordinating framelits, Baby’s First.
