Babies and More
My sister just had her baby showers within the last few weeks, so 1+1=3: Babies and More, is
a topic near and dear to my heart as I look forward to becoming an Auntie once again. In this
article, you’ll find a wide array of projects relating to newborns and babies, to pregnancy, to
shower gifts and cards. Some of them will be digital, some hybrid, and some traditional. While
they tend to be on the feminine side, just imagine switching the colors to blues, oranges, and
greens for boys. I scoured the internet for the freshest and brightest ideas, so I hope you’ll find
inspiration on the next few pages for that new baby in your life.
I’ve organized the next three pages into three categories: Gift Items, Pregnancy, and Babies.
Plus there are bonus project ideas by Sandy Ang and Melanie Kelly on the Scrapstreet Blog (5/
30/11) for you to check out!

however, this creation isn't as beautiful as the tiny Sofia!

could duplicate this look using an embroidery hoop or just use a round plate to make a canvas
creation like Nicoletta did. So adorable!
