Baby Boy Blog Hop for Jinny

Hey everyone!  I'm excited to be participating in a blog hop for my sweet friend Jinny to celebrate the birth of the latest addition to her family, Kaden Matthew.

I realized in creating this card that I really don't have a ton of baby stamps, so this card is stamp free.

I used patterned paper and a tag from Elle's Studio's Cameron collection and die cut alphas to create the sentiment.  I added some die cut stars, adhering them first to the tag and then stitching over them to create a banner effect at the top of my tag.

The trim is May Arts, I just love this Chevron Twill and have it in several colors.  Rather than wrapping it around the patterned paper, I just folded the ends over and stitched it to the patterned paper piece.

Anyway, I won't blather on, I want to make sure you are able to check out all the great projects and please go leave Jinny some love too.  I know she'll appreciate it!
