It's time for a new Magnolia - licious challenge!!

Good morning, everyone! Happy April 1st! Hope you're not having too many April 1st jokes played on you. :)  With it being the first of the month, that means it's time for a new Design Team Challenge from Magnolia-licious! This month our challenge is from our awesome Ruby, and it is to make baby themed projects/gift sets.  You can read all about it and see all our projects over at the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge Blog. Here's what I came up with for you today


I used the Cricut Expression with the Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge for the box and then had some fun decorating it. with #201 Baby Tilda from the new Princes and Princesses Collection from Magnolia-licious!! I simply adore this enire collection!! I did alter her just a tad by cutting off the butterfly and replacing it with a little "welcome" sign. I sat precious little Baby Tilda on this FABULOUS #542 Sweet Moon! I am going to be using this moon a LOT, LOL! I LOOOOOVE it!!!  The images are stamped with Memento ink onto Cryogen White paper and then colored with Copic markers (listed below). I then fussy cut them out and popped them up from some gorgeous Graphic 45 paper.

I used a Martha Stewart PAP set with some Bazzill cardstock. There's lots of machine stitching and the only other thing I added are some pearls made with the Viva Decor Pearl Pen. Very simple, but I do like how it turned out.

Magnolia-licious is THE place to go for all your Magnolia purchases!! Diana carries an extensive stock of Magnolia images with the best prices and the best service!! Not only do you receive an automatic discount, but she also gives you in store credit for every purchase!! You can get not only the normal sized images, but Diana is your source for the Mini-Magnolias as well!! She also carries an awesome array of gorgeous dies too!!


Copics used are clothing: YG61, 63, C3, T1, 2, blender pen; hair: E51, 53, 57, 31, 33; Crown: Y32, 35;  Moon: E51, 53, Y32, E33, R20; skin: E13, 11, 01, 00, with a touch of R20 on her knees. I used chalk on her cheeks.


My plans are to stamp and color the moon on a onsie to put in the box. I just couldn't get it done by today. So that's my baby gift set for you today. Please be sure to pop over to Magnolia-licious Highlites to check out my teamies gorgeous creations. And then we'd love it if you'd join us in the challenge. Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!

You are good! I love what you did with this baby Tilda sitting on the moon. I have a half moon hanging from an odd window in my granddaughters room that is holding a sleeping baby. The box is great. Such a pretty and wonderful gift. Too bad I am not having a baby!
