Baby Avery Frame

I've taken a small break from the challenges to complete a gift for my friends daughter.

I used a simple shadow box and co-ordinated cardstock from joann's. I used two stamp sets from Stampin up, Perfect princess, and Once upon a time. I originally purchased the build a fairy-tale from Stampin up, where I got the idea for the shadow box, but really didn't like the designer paper they used, the size they chose, or the difficulty in taking it apart. So here is what I did, I scanned the images, brought them into inkscape, created a .SCUT file, and was able to cut the image in any size, and on any paper on the cricut. The build-a-fairy-tale, I'm sad to say, is on the retired list. The clouds and the princess got some bling bling by adding glitter. The colors that were chosen match a section of material from the bumper covers of my friends baby room. I can't wait to see what photo she chooses to put in it.



  1. Beautiful! It'll be quite a keepsake for them!

  2. What a sweet gift. You did a fabulous job on this!

  3. This is beautiful. You friend will love it for her daughter's room. Really great job!

  4. How sweet is this! I have boys, so I love to see anything girly! My niece would love a shadow box like this. :)
