Jungle Chipboard Album
Since her nursery is the Jungle Theme from Pottery Barn Kids, I really tried to match up the colors and jungle animals the best I could.
My craftiness started with a word book of the lil’ guys name, Wylder. This book took quite a bit of time to create on my Gypsy since it was basically trial and error making the correct sizes. I got discouraged using my deep-cut blade too even though I followed the directions for cutting chipboard on my Cricut Expression. Anyways, I really didn’t have much luck with the chipboard, the machine was going off course during the second cut and I was worried to death that it would kill my Cricut so I switched to cereal boxes as a thinner chipboard which really worked well. Hello-Brilliant!!
Love my first Word Book creation an hopefully will have less difficulty making my next one. I did take other photos of the book from different views but they got deleted off my memory stick by accident. Boo….
Jungle Theme Shadow Box
My next project was a large 16 x 20 Shadow Box for the baby’s nursery. I found this cute canvas giraffe wall hanging at Jo-Ann’s and thought it would make a neat 3D accent inside the box. Unfortunately, you can’t really tell it’s a large shadow box ’cause this photo is taken without the glass outside of the frame .
Jungle Themed Cards
So , these cute A2 thank you cards are what started all my Jungle Baby designs. I made 15 cards using either a giraffe, hippo or elephant die cut along with a stamped Thank You sentiment. Of course, I had to make coordinating envelopes too. I seriously have crafting OCD!
