Baby Girl x 2

Today turned out to be a pretty good Monday...my sister went into labor!! I cannot wait to meet my 2 new nieces. Either late tonight or tomorrow morning I will be an Auntie again. Yeah!!! So with that news, I thought i'd share some little goodies I have made for my two new nieces.

These are so fun to make, stamped onesies! I started with regular cotton onesies, palette ink (I got mine from Papertrey Ink) and a variety of fun stamps. Just ink up your stamps and stamp on the fabric. So easy!


I also made some using the Button Bits sets from Papertrey Ink. I love that stamp set!!



I can't wait to see my nieces in these. I hope they fit. They looked so darn tiny, I have forgotten how small babies are!

I also found these small white frames in the $1 bin at Target (they were 3 frames for $1!). They are about 5x5 in size. I added some Basic Grey Urban Prairie papers to the inside frame and then diecut these big butterflies on my Cricut. I made 5 of these so my sister can decorate the baby's nursery or their bathroom or whatever she wants with them.



I love how the colors are girly without being too over-the-top girly. At least I don't think so!! I can't wait to meet my new nieces and find out their names. We've been kept in the dark about that. Hope you had a great start to your week, thanks for stopping by!
