Baby Bump

This layout is actually a full spread, but I censored the other half because it had several photos of my bare giant pregger tummy and you don't want to see that.  However, I wanted to post this right side because I like the balance of it. 

I cut the brown floral piece in the upper right with my sister's bigshot (a super cool cutting machine) while I was visiting her in Texas last month. I made myself several of those to spare, so hopefully they'll show up in other layouts too!

The blue flowers are also made with a big shot- although Cheryl was the one to make them. She actually made a bunch of them for some other project and offered me a few leftovers! They're made with a Big Shot Stampin' Up! Embosslit Die, so one run through the big shot cuts AND embosses! Cheryl then put some Stampin' Up! Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink on the raised piece and added a pearl in the center (did I get that right, Cheryl?). I love them so much I'm tempted to buy a big shot myself! (but only temped)


  1. Very nice!! I don't think the other side really needed censored ;) but I do love the way this side turned out! The fleur-de-lis and little wooden frame turned out great!

  2. Squeee! How fun to open this up and see the little flowers put to good use!

    The page is gorgeous, and you are wrong, I do want to see your adorable baby bump! That little wooden looking frame is super cute. What did you do to the bird? Looks intriguing.

    Oh, I think I used the white Shimmer Paint on the flowers, not the Smooch paint. I haven't gotten my hot little hands on that stuff yet. :)

    PS You know you are going to break down and get a Big Shot one of the days, don't you? You could always join my Big Shot club, and wait to you see the new hostess benefits in July!
