Welcome Little Princess

Good morning,
                      Can you believe that we have just begun the second month of the year? As it’s the first Friday of the month we have a new challenge over at
This month it’s anything goes – no twist just whatever you like.
We have so many babies arriving in the next few months, so I decided to make a keepsake to welcome the new baby which can also double as a gift.





Filled with socks rolled as rosebuds this can be used as a new baby gift or for a baby shower gift.




I used a cutting file from  Sandra’s Scrap Shop for my Silhouette machine. The template is available as a pdf also if you don’t have a cutting machine.
The papers are from the Baby Elephant set by Designloverstudio over at Etsy.
The lace and ribbon are from my stash.
Hearts and bears were from ebay
Flowers are from Wild orchid crafts.
