Good morning Magnolia friends.... today we have a very special surprise for our Magnolia Down Under Design Team Member Louise - who is expecting a baby - very very very soon!!!
We are having a Baby Shower!!!
Louise's baby will be the first born on our Design Team.... hahahha so we thought we would celebrate that fact and also mainly because of Louise - because we treasure her on our team and we know just how precious this little baby is!!!!
So first of all - we decided months and months ago that we would do this.... but we did run into a problem - how to keep it secret, and keep Louise completely in the dark about what we are doing... so we planted a decoy theme!!! hheheheheheheheheh and then set about telling the rest of the Team what, Kylie, Debbie and I had planned for Louise... heheheheh
I tell you it really was secret squirrel business!!! LOL
So for my project this week, I have created a little Pram.... I took my inspiration from a Magnolia Ink magazine which featured one I think that Camilla S. made.... they have of course been around for ages, but they are so cute!!!! So here it is, I hope you love it as much as me:-)
Here is a closer look at Baby Tilda in my pram.... I made my pram by cutting 2 circles out with my Cricut and then I cut a wedge out of each piece. I then used a long peice of card and trimmed the edges so that it would curve around nicely. My wheels are cut using a punch - one for the bigger and then a smaller one for the inside bits, then I've added some buttons!!
And this is the other side... WHAT how did I get Tilda the other way around you ask? I used a mirror stamp. Basically it's just a blank bit of rubber that you stamp onto and then stamp on your paper with that, and you end up with your image reversed or mirrored... very cool!!
And here is a top view of all the little flowers I used, the pram is just so pretty in real life:-)
And here is a pic of the back. I used the Doo Hickey Lace boarder to make the fancy stuff... and some toothpicks to act like the folds in the hood... very cute!! My hangle is made from twine, which I ran through glue to make it stiff. I also added some charms to one side, like a rattle!!
So there you go, I hope you love my little pram, I did have heaps of fun making it!!
So we hope that you will come along and play in the celebrations this week at Magnolia Down Under for Louise's Surprise Baby Shower... oh and if your wondering on what to make... check out the gorgeous Inspirational Picture and think - Babies!!! LOL
