For Sweet Baby Avery

I'm so behind in making my little gifts that I really meant to do sooner, but it is what it is and I am late! Some of you might know Allison from Stampin' When I Can, I started visiting her over a year ago because in addition to her inspiration, her blog is loaded with links to many other bloggers out there!! (Thanks Allison!) Well, Allison recently gave birth to baby number three and I wanted to make a special gift for Baby Avery. I decided to stamp some onesies I picked up from Ross and stamped on them. Here's a view of the onesies after I stamped them... Then, I had to wrap it up! I made this really cool holder following a tutorial created by Andrea Walford, such a talented SU demonstrator. You must visit her blog if you haven't already. I truly admire her work! To see the tutorial for this project, click HERE. I made this back in January, and didn't know what I was going to do with it, but it was such a cute idea, I just had to! I guess it was meant to be used to wrap up this baby gift, because it was perfect! I just finished it off with the decorating of the front and the sentiment inside.
Here's a view of the inside. It only fit 2 of the 3 onsies. I wrapped each onsie with some tulle and tied it up with satin ribbon.
A closer look at the sentiment. I love the new scallop oval punch that will be available for purchase come April 1st!
And, here is a side view.
Stamps: Nursery Necessities
Cardstock: Pixie Pink, chocolate chip, DP Sweet Always
Inks: Pixie pink, real red, black, sahara sand
Accessories: circle nesties, stitched ribbon (by papertrey), scallop edge punch, scallop oval punch, large oval punch, wide oval punch, rhinestone, regal rose grosgrain ribbon, satin ribbon, lavendar tulle
I was so excited when I finished this gift that I couldn't wait to share this. I haven't even mailed it out yet, so now I ruined the surprise, but that's okay Allison...now you know I really made a gift like I said I was going to. Sorry so late!!

Love the onesies you personalized for Allison - they are so special. Andrea is wonder woman - I'm amazed with all of the things she manages to do - business, family etc. - just like you, Teri.

This is adorable! I have stamped on onesies, but it never comes out so great, I think I use the wrong ink. I love Andrea's blog too, she's very inspirational, just like you!

WOW, we I got to your fourth picture and when I saw the CK logo, I though I had read wrong 'that you stamped the onesies'. I had to rewind and look again at all the pictures from the beginning.

The onesies turned out SO good, actually looks like the can be manufactured by CK. You are so talented. The box goes awesome with them too. I'm sure your girlfriend would LOVE them. Great job. Thanks for sharing.
