Vintage Baby Buggy

** 6/21/14 Top 3 Favorite at Shopping Our Stash! **

Hi everyone! I sat last evening with the hubster watching a movie and created the cutest vintage baby buggy for a co-worker who is expecting a little girl in September. My inspiration came from a couple of them I saw on Pinterest a while back but there were no instructions or templates, so I made my own a couple weekends ago, and now I can't find it in my messy scrap room. :( Needless to say, when I discovered the tutorial for this one on my Technique Junkies Great Gifts CD yesterday, I was ecstatic! It's actually quite similar but it was nice to have specific measurements and not have to guess! ;)

I found this pink ruffled lace and I do believe it wins the prize for the oldest "anything" I have in my stash... the package had 1980 on it! But it's still sturdy and strong! OMG, do you believe it?! I almost fell over! Hahaha!

I just bought several new double-sided paper packs and this gorgeous vintage floral design was in one of them. I think it works very well for this project!

I knew I was going to need quite a few tiny gemstones, so I used a package of loose clear ones without the adhesive backing. It took a few minutes (or fifteen) to glue all those little buggers on! It definitely has bling! ;)

Proud to enter my vintage baby buggy into the following challenges:

  • Kaisercrafts Key To My Heart double-sided papers
  • GKD Cranberry Tart cardstock
  • EK Success Paper Shapers Circle and Scalloped Circle punches
  • Pink ruffled lace
  • Tiny clear gemstones 
  • Large white flat-back pearls
  • Pink felt brads

I have to admit that I haven't had much stamping/cardmaking mojo over the last several weeks. It's been a couple years since I've had this kind of dry spell, so I guess it was just time. I think most artists experience this from time to time, so I can't beat myself up over it. I'm filling in the gaps with 3-D projects that always give me my craft fix! I've been playing with some pretty awesome Silhouette cut files too, so stay tuned for some very cool purses I've created! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)

Fantabuolous! Love the colors and that paper is awesome for this project. Great job, and it makes me laugh on the age of the stash...I like hearing things like that, I don't feel bad, when I keep things and use and they are old. Awesomeness. Nice job with the bling, sure makes it pretty and pop. Thanks for playing our Baby Challenge! Awesome!
