Hi! Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway and I am super excited to Design today! This week at Sweet Sassy Diva, the challenge is to use a Diamond in your project. I made a gift bag for a very special little girl. I have a new little baby girl who will be coming to my daycare in a couple of months.
Tanner and I are holding Baby Grayson ~ isn't she beautiful! Her big sister loves Elephants and has a special lovey that is a pink elephant. Mom picked out a Giraffe for Grayson so I decided to make a Giraffe gift bag to hold her gift from me.
I picked the Giraffe from Create A Critter and the coordinating Kite (aka diamond). I put the layers of the giraffe on my mat sized at 3.24 inches.
Instead of using the top layer with the round spots on it, I copied a second middle layer and added hearts as my spots. I did not weld, instead I grouped the hearts (George and Basic Shapes, variety of sizes) with the giraffe body so they hearts would cut out.
I added some grass from Paper Doll Dress Up sized to 1.73 inches.
I added a sun from Create A Critter and some clouds from April Showers.
I used yellow, pink, green and blue cardstock to cut out the pieces.
I used some ink, pop dots and stickles to add some dimension.
Here is my gift bag ready to stuff full of goodies!!
Thanks for having me over today Bobbi Jo!!
